Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Fred was a Legend

Fred was the biggest thing that hit YouTube, the biggest website. Fred was the funniest guy on the internet, and he, played by Lucas Cruikshank, had originality, and talent, his phrase, HEY IT'S FRED!!! was the biggest, he was the first person on YouTube to get 1000000 views and subscribers, and his Fred channel was the first to do so, he was a legend. Then after he made it to Nickelodeon and made movies and a show there, he started a friendship with girl, and things got dark,then made another video on the old channel before making a saga that therefore put Fred to an end. Then, Lucas sold his Fred site to little kids in the name of Fred, to gain money and he spent it on a vehicle, and lost approx 5000000 subs. Then later, Lucas broke up with the girl, and later, to this day, he has his own channel where he plays as himself and not Fred, and trust me, it's garbage compared to the Fred place. Although he did bring Fred back for a few throwback videos, he hasn't bee n seen or heard of again, now it's just [email protected] old Lucas, who makes videos so [email protected], that even the haters of Fred will hate the new channel even more and throw tomatoes at it. I just don't get how people hated Fred so much, he was annoying with his sped up voice right, but that was part of it, and he had originality and realistic situations, Too bad the actor had to grow up and throw his life down the drain, YouTube will never be the same again.
