In his video "Happily Married Without Children" where Richard discussed his childfree stance with his wife Jasmin, Richard expressed how much he hated children, even saying he wanted to "smash [babies] to a pulp on a pavement".[8] He also recalled an incident where he was at a restaurant with a crying baby, where he screamed at the parents of the baby and threatened to fistfight the father due to the baby bothering everyone. When critics such as Isaac Butterfield and Sixteenleo called him out, he threatened to fight them.[9][10] He was also called a hypocrite as he claimed one of the reasons he was childfree was due to not wanting to contribute to environmental carbon footprint, but he bought his dog from a breeder and owned multiple motorbikes.
