Tidying Up My Desk After Leaving DanPlan (Q&A)

  • Published: 12 January 2020
  • Appologies, but I just need to correct some things I said in my stream:

    1) I said that Jay was most likely copying my personality, which was true, but it was Daniel that suggested him to copy me. Jay didn't decide to by himself.
    2) The amounts of money that I said Hosuh received were wrong, I got them mixed up. The percentages were right, but the base amounts were wrong. Hosuh actually received 15% of the revenue from May 2017 (animation transition) to May 2019 which amounted to $42,000 CAD. This is also taken from the pure revenue amount, the amount that Daniel made with taxes and employee salaries taken out before paying Hosuh, which based on Hosuh's share shows that the total revenue amount was about $280,000, with merch and sponsorships included. These are just estimates as neither Hosuh nor I had access to the real values.

    Thank you Blank and Ivu for sorting through literally thousands of messages to help me with this stream.

    And I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has been giving me support and kind words over the past week. When I posted my video, I didn't expect to get as many views as I did and I also didn't expect those people who heard me out to be so supportive (this is YouTube after all).

    There are a lot of people still on the fence about this situation and hopefully this stream will answer any aching questions you all might have.

        I hate this so much. Stephen lied so so much in this livestream and just because people like him, no ones gonna talk about it. We’ll ignore it, and then in the future another incident will come up and the same mistakes will be made

                One thing that no one brought up is how much money does Daniel spend on equipment. Like does he buy drawing tablets, or digital art apps, or does he buy expensive mics or expensive cameras? Also how much money was spent on there Disney trip? I'm not saying who's right or wrong, but a big percentage of there income might be spent on there equipment because a lot of those things could cost thousands of dollars.

                          Honestly I’m not against anybody, but after watching Dan’s side of video I really don’t know who to believe at this point. Their side of points are not matching with each other, and that means one of them are lying but I want to believe in both of them.

                            Dan is great
                            Dan thought you were friends
                            And you thought you are not friends
                            Dan what you do to get a channel so you can do your own thing
                            You trash talk to Dan
                            Dan thought you were doing this for fun Steven.😁

                              Big sigh for me tbh. I'm not choosing a side. I listened to dan and jay and stephen and honestly. They should fight this ALL in private. I hate drama in general and we start off like this again. I loved every bit of.this channel with every person involved but nobody is 100% doing nothing wrong. Everyone did something probably and I just wish they or get over it or just leave each other alone. Anyway this won't get any better so.. yeah that.. tbh I just feel sad in this situation. I genuinely feel sad about seeing this happening and I feel bad for hosu just like everyone.. so much must be happening for him and I pray the best for him

                                    After seeing dan’s video, this is infuriating. Don’t get me wrong, I love Stephen. But this is screwed up.

                                      Also whenever he says “sorry give me a sec” makes me wanna cry

                                          I watched the rise and the fall of DanPlan and it’s devastating to see it go away. I loved there contact and diverse personality. I keep on watching there old context, fans context about it and so on and so forth.

                                                This drama is over, and so is Danplan. I'm not taking any sides, especially when we don't know who could be in the truth. Dan could have faked the evidence (if you're not aware, there's a lot of tools to do that nowadays), and Stephen could have lied about some. What I do know is, I don't wanna attack any sides, and just respect the decisions they've made.

                                                            @Bug Horse yes! Here is 3! Stephen talks about the whole us as a weapon thing twice in this video, but I also wanted to include Daniels edit to show how where he cuts it makes the context different in the two videos.
                                                            In daniels video his claim is at 34:14
                                                            This is the first clip where stephen talks about wanting to not use us as a weapon 1:10:28
                                                            This is the second clip where stephen also says he doesnt want to use us as a weapon (this clip contains the section daniel uses, but he cuts it off before stephen says he doesnt want to use us as a weapon) 1:35:14

I don’t see why people still side with Stephen, he has no images or evidence to back up his claims when Daniel did have proof to back up his claims. I am sorry if I offend you, Stephen supporters but why does Stephen still get all this support after we learn his true colors? This type of toxic behavior ruins the art community. You aren’t a real friend if you promise to stay until Hosuh comes back, then you just up and leave before he gets back.

This might not happen if Dan made the right choice and words to let go. Many are pissed because of "not him" but his behavior . Even his animators who recently posting their videos. Trying to become passive aggressive on their sides. But we all knew that they are only pin pointing one person which is Dan. We cant just accept it because we already fall in love with their videos and cant accept what is going on. But if u will try to analyze as a new subscriber and read all sides of the story. The only problem here is Dan's selfish side.

I don’t know how to answer and or even trying to help u but all I can say, is seek help, what u are doing, Putting ur feelings out on the internet, which I hate to say is not a very safe place. Ppl may interpret the opinion differently. It’s rly inspiring to see that something has bravery like that to do it. Secondly, another thing I have done is turn to what makes u comfortable and try to relax. Being angry will just lead to rash and reckless decisions that u may regret later on. And third. Don’t give up. Trust me u must be angry at Daniel. But I have heard both sides of the argument and there are def holes in both sides and in the process u have left the ppl u love with emotional scars. And well I may have done that ppl I know have done that to me... pls consider what dan has said and try to reconsider what dan has actually said. Bc I’m dans vid he claimed that u didn’t want any money then he claimed u wanted 33 percent of the cut. Now I know very little of what happened but try talking to dan. And see what he thought. And who knows maybe u could clarify things. Continue with dan plan and help show that that channel is where is sprouted my love for all the characters i know and love I including u!!!❤️❤️❤️

Stephen put the information onto the internet in the same manner that a whistleblower would expose a corrupt individual or organization. DanPlan fell apart but not without avail. This ensures that no one else will be treated the same way that Stephen, the animators, Jay, or any of the other members of the channel were by Daniel ever again -- at least not in this "business" model. People might not be happy about Stephen's approach, since it means the downfall of DanPlan, but in return, it means less exploitation for the individuals within all this.

Even if Dan is as bad as it seems, Stephen should at least attempt to pretend to be grateful to Dan because otherwise, nobody would know who he is. That being said, I've unsubscribed from Actually Stephen and Danplan since too many people are misquoting both parties and I dont have the energy to follow this stupid drama. Good luck on your channel Stephen, and Dan if the allegations are true, shame on you. And Hosuh, you are great! I hope your friends work this out and that you three can all hang out when you get back.

                                                                                        Many people are here upset about the whole situation, others are here just to pause the video and have a hissy fit at dan, and I’m here to find the truth. Here is what I currently have.

                                                                                        1. Stephen posted first, claiming he was not being compensated enough and saying that Dan was abusive. I’d like to add that making a situation public is one of the worst ways to make a conflict worse. If, note; *IF*, Stephen was trying to make this worse, then this was definitely the way to do it.

                                                                                        2. Throughout Stephen’s streams, we see him being very, as short of a description I can make it, mean. I wouldn’t say this is who he is, he could have been joking, but I’m not throwing away the possibility.

                                                                                        3. Dan seems visibly upset in his new video, and this could be a trick. But, I can see it. He’s hurt. For those who watched the whole video, you might agree. While I’m leaning towards this being real, I’m not going to confirm until I know, for a fact, that this is true.

                                                                                        4. People quickly sided with Stephen and hated on Daniel. Some good fans who obviously enjoyed Stephen, as I did, and some people who are/aren’t part of DanPlan *cough* Jay *cough*

                                                                                        5. Stephen said he wanted to discuss this personally, and Dan even offered to do this as we see in the texts provided by Dan. But, Stephen hasn’t agreed.

                                                                                        6. Stephen brought Hosuh into the situation. This would be a great way to make a mediate a conflict if the mediator was non biased. Note, if the mediator was non biased. Hosuh, being a very honest person, from what we can see through live-streams and vids, was non biased, luckily. But, it still went wrong. This is because Hosuh was friends with both of them, making him biased in that sense.

                                                                                        7. Dan has given us evidence thorough enough for this to become an investigation and not a one sided witch hunt for a “monster” as one party calls the other.

                                                                                        8. Stephen, here’s the kicker for me, admits that he is using the audience, that is being told that Dan is a monster, as a weapon against Dan. THIS was Stephen’s main slip up. Using people at all is wrong, but using them as a weapon? Yeah, I’m going to let you find your own conclusion on this one because I can’t even use this evidence without starting to gain bias. Take this note as you will.

                                                                                        9. Stephen’s words in his QnA livestream while he was clearing off his desk, “he didn’t give me recognition for one mil, so I’m gonna take his two mil.” That isn’t okay to me, but that’s my bias and I’m putting that to the side for this. What Stephen has brought across by saying this is that he wants revenge, not money, not friendship, not a compromise, revenge. This contradicts with what he said earlier in his stream about just wanting this to end. It also contradicts what Dan showed us with Stephen still wanting the money from earlier unpaid vids, showing he wants money. These contradictions weaken and weaken my case towards Stephen being right.

                                                                                        10. Stephen stated that he needed to speak for the animators in which, if Dan is being honest about him only recording and nothing else, he can not do because he doesn’t even know them, personally or business wise.

                                                                                        11. Dan is correct on the matter of the animators which he gave us in his vid, they are subcontractors. He is right on what that means and on the matter in general. This is also a piece of evidence that if Stephen had brought up, then his case would’ve been stronger.

                                                                                        My current conclusion in case nothing else after this comes out:Stephen is in the wrong, and Dan is in the right. Stephen has been contradictory, unkind, and overall very destructive. He says all those times he said “i hate you, Daniel” was with true malice, giving us a sense of what kind of person he is. We see through his live-stream on his being rude and unkind to people like Hosuh, such as “Actually, is Hosuh a better artist than Stephen? No” and his recent livestream on the personality test, in which he got numbers I would give to a borderline sociopath, but that’s my opinion take it with a grain of salt. I have provided evidence on his contradictions and the destructiveness I mentioned was found through his “attempt” to make things better by bringing Hosuh into it, which made things worse, by making the situation public, and an inference on what he is like personally with what he said about taken dans two mil because he wasn’t given recognition for one mil. In my current conclusion, the people who are hurling insults at Dan should be ashamed of themselves. But, to anyone who starts throwing insults at Stephen after reading the and/or watching the vid on DanPlan, you should be just as ashamed.
