Well I’m glad he realised how he was coming across :) Unfortunately I think he does genuinely feel that way, and censors it to make his audience like him, which he’s allowed to do, but I’m just not sure I like that part of his personality - which is ok too :) I like all the rest. Your message was definetly not hate though, and was very sweet :)
Idk, it’s like I appreciate that Dan is intelligent, and that he’s really proud of it, and that it is something to be celebrated…but I kind of feel that it make him (though probably unintentionally) a little condescending. I love that he’s smart, but I can’t stand the fact that he constantly reminds us all that ‘GCSE’s are easy, if you don’t pass them you’re an idiot! huhuhuhhhh!!’ I’m not even currently taking my GCSE’s, I took them years ago, but surely anyone facing up to 11 exams in a 2 week period is going to struggle, even a little bit? And that’s ok! You don’t have to be intelligent to be a good person!
If you fail your GCSE’s, or you don’t do as well as you’d hoped don’t let anyone, even your favourite Youtuber/celebrity, make you feel bad about it! I literally had my grandmother die the day of my History exam, and although I did alright in the exam, if I’d failed it, I’d feel a little bit crap if I had someone like Dan going ‘you didn’t pass your GCSEs?? You’re an idiot!’
*before the defensive Dan hate arrives…I urge you to check out the rest of my blog, and you will see that I do love him quite a lot…I just think for someone who is so scared of his own fans that he refuses to share any opinions on anything at all, he kind of insults them a little more than necessary*
