I don’t know what it is lately, but I’ve been running into more and more cyber bullies in the Creepypasta Nation. A while ago, I had a run in with someone who attempted to bully me by verbally attacking my son, Murphy ain’t havin’ none of that. That certain individual has a track record of angering many people in the community and has therefore been banned. I haven’t heard from him since.
Just recently, I had a fellow YouTuber LotusSigma make an unusual request:
Hello, I am a narrator creepypastas Brazilian was wondering if u allow me to use animation that you used in the creepypasta “No End House”?
So you want to use the visuals that I spent days on, just so you can claim them as your own? Here was my response:
Simple enough. I woke up this morning to the following retort in my inbox:
Now I understand why your channel there is enough time but grows slowly, you are not humble.

First off, I don’t know if that symbol at the beginning is supposed to be a smiley face or a penis. At any rate, so I’m supposedly a jackass for not allowing the kid to copy off my test? Are you serious? I really don’t care if my subs are climbing slowly, I earned every single one of them because I’m good at what I do. I had to respond to this immediately:
It has nothing to do with humility, sir. It has everything to do with integrity! I work too hard to achieve the visuals I create, to have someone simply copy them and claim them as their own.
I am extremely insulted and offended that you feel that I am in the wrong for not allowing you to copy my creation. I will make sure that this communication, plus your initial request to copy my work, will be sent to the proper authorities for YouTube.
Which I did. I sent off this guy’s user account and a screen capture of the above message he sent to the YouTube Complaint department. After I sent it off, I received even more fan mail:
I was afraid, I will not sleep at night because of its threat. ????’
Now this message by itself is quite ridiculous, but it was paired with his rendition of ‘Jeff The Killer’. I reported this message as well to YouTube and blocked this fella from ever contacting me again. But now I am concerned. We all know that ‘Jeff the Killer’ is just a fictional character, but the notion of ‘Jeff the Killer’ is very real. Serial killings happen all the time. I’m not so concerned about my welfare, but for my son.
This shit has gone too far. We’re just creating videos, we’re not storing top secret government information. This is supposed to be fun, and it’s people like LotusSigma who just make it more of a hassle and an inconvenience. I feel sorry for people who think they need to resort to this kind of behavior. Not only did this kid slaughter any chance of ever working with me in the future, but because I have much better grasp of the English language, I have over 2,300 fans that would probably back me up by spreading this message to everyone they want to. Those people can spread this to all of their friends and so on and so forth.
We have more power than give ourselves credit for, we have social media and technology to beat these kids at their own game. And now is the time to act!
So please, for the sake of everyone who has ever been bullied, in ANY FORM, report this character to the YouTube authorities for attempted bullying. I don’t take shit from no one!
