Fairly Oddparents & Danny Phantom Creator Butch Hartman liked about his kick starter campaign to start a family friendly streaming service?

This Video tells the story of the controversy about Butch Hartman and his campaign to launch a streaming service. Which never mentions until funds are raised that it's religious. He is also blocking all criticism from you tubers ans bloggers as well as making offensive comments about mental illness as well as blocking comments from the LGBTQ community. Do you think this is a dick move on his part?
Updates:
I really think that he should have been upfront definitely and not desperate for donations. I also think he should not block those who try to criticize him. It just goes to show he's a snowflake himself

  • I'll just put this into perspective and my take on it:

    Lets say a TV show comes out that needs money to debute, and I donate to them to help them get their show started. After donating, I learn that it's a show that teaches children to hate LGBT+ people. Being gay myself, I would be pretty pissed off that I donated 15 dollars for them to spread a message I don't agree with. If I didn't donate amd was told what their intentions were ahead of time, I wouldn't even care if it was anti gay. But, since they hid that detail from me and I donated to a show that I don't agree with, I'm gonna be pretty pissed off.

    In my opinion, he should have been upfront about it. He should have expected the criticism, and now he's making the show that a lot of the donaters don't agree with. In my opinion, "family friendly" shows shouldn't really be religious or shove religion down your face.

    • I'm sorry I was wrong. Peace

  • I don't think it's a dick move. He wants to make a family friendly streaming service that any and every family can comfortably support and be okay with their kids watching. He is under no obligation to make his platform support shows promoting what people think he ought to support. He's allowed to create it how he likes. I suspect he doesn't think it's worth replying to a lot of commenters who simply post angry comments or that try and tell him what all he "should have" on his streaming service. Just like anyone on here has the right to block whoever they want no questions asked for whatever reason... there's really no reason he shouldn't have that right as an individual as well. It's not that he isn't willing to listen to other opinions, it's that he's already established what he wants and he's not going to change it whether or not anyone tells him to... so yeah he has every right to do that.

  • If he's not being upfront then he has something to hide and that's a dick move.

    Some people have kids and low and behind they are not religious and may support kid friendly content but not content religious in nature.

  • Well it's technically illegal and he's probably gonna me sued for false advertising, misappropriation of funds, and various manipulation tactics. I don't know if I would call it wrong. I would definitely, however, call it clever.

  • No, I think that's his freedom of choice. He can block who he wants. I never heard him make negative attacks on people with mental illness, but I find that wrong. If your saying that the streaming service is producing Christian shows, then that is fine, as their is nothing wrong with that.
    I do think he should ingore the critiques though and not respond, as he's trying to create this streaming service and not pressure the Idea of money onto viewers.

    • He scammed people to give him money without being honest about the product he's trying to create.

  • This is really upsetting to know/hear, since I loved those shows so much, and suffer from a mental illness myself, and I'm Pagan.

  • Nah. I don't see anything wrong with it. I also don't see why him being religious is an issue?

  • No it's not a dick move. Lbgt people are picking on him. And youtubers are using his name for views.

    You paid for a kicstarter to start a app with family friendly content. Last time i checked Jesus is family friendly.

    Dude isn't a snowflake he doesn't have to answer to people with nothing. Why would i want your opinion if yout a nobody. I got 2 HIT SHOWS UNDERMY BELT. YOUR BUM ASS YOUTUBER.

    At least he isn't like Steven universe which trys to covert your kids secretly

    • I honestly don't think religion is family friendly... Unless you cherry pick the bible. Honestly, I love Butch. He's my favorite creator on Nickelodeon! But, I do think he should have been upfront.

      I will agree that LGBT+ people are kind of being dicks about it, but that's how we feel about religion tbh...

    • Show All
    • Again, I think politics aren't really that kid friendly, and since religion is gaining some big heat right now, I don't think it would be best to really bring it up with kids.

      However, as long as Butch's show doesn't have too much about politics in it, then he should go for it. I mean, I grew up with Christian morals too, and LGBT was not even brought up once until I was 13 years old.

      It's just those hardcore Christians that made me stray away from Christianity as a whole. Honestly, if anyone is qualified to make a show with Christian morals, I think Butch is the best creator for it.

    • Yeah, politics is only friendly when just talking about the president all of the other stuff like policies is crossing the line. As for hardcore christians, every group has them.

  • Butch is a good dude I think he's largely oblivious to the world outside of his work but he doesn't try to make enemies I say leave em be and let him have his fun

  • The internet has far to many whiny babies and he just doesn't know how to deal with it effectively so he blocks them lol. He said he will add Christian values into the shows, not convert your kids into Christians. Yeah he is vague about his plans and also ignores certain questions, but this is being blown out of proportion. I think the people who are attacking him are the real bad guys here

    • so pretty much dont get too cocky

    • Pretty much yeah. Butch has tons of experience in being an animator yet she's trying to create his own network from scratch. His ideas sound bad in themselves. He painted it as a network without negativity. Conflict is an important part of story telling to make things meaningful. How are you going to have a channel that's all sunshine and rainbows make a powerful impact?
