The same thing happens in professional sports and entertainment: young kids who are suddenly paid massive bucks, are treated like rockstars, and get drunk on the fame. You can expect more than a few will let this go to their heads, and in their relative inexperience and immaturity, wind up dropping a joke about genocide or filming a dead body. Paul won’t be the last to do this. Hell, I’d be surprised if we make it to the end of the month before another YouTube star engulfs themselves in controversy, But again, YouTube must surely be aware of the ephemeral nature of these kids’ success: burn them hard and bright, make as much money out of them while you can, because they won’t burn for long.
