Right-wing YouTuber Steven Crowder complains about being offered $50 million

From time to time, right-wing media front men pull back the curtain and tell the truth: they are rich babies.

That’s what Steven Crowder, the far-right YouTuber known for that “change your mind” meme and for being beaten up by pro-labor protesters in Lansing, did this week when he loudly complained that a $20 offer 50 million was actually a way. of slavery, and who spoke courageously in the name of human rights.

As Will Sommer from The Daily Beast indicated, the dispute began when Crowder posted a video Tuesday calling out an unnamed right-wing media company for what he said was an “immoral” offer to host Crowder’s show and produce other content for him. Among other things, Crowder complained that the anonymous company wanted to control his official social media accounts and that they wanted to be able to penalize him for missing shows and being demonetized on social media platforms, should that happen, as he has already done. happened. in Youtube.

“There’s no need to be enslaved like this!” Crowder said of the offer, while repeatedly telling viewers to join his mailing list, which he said was akin to “letting people at Big Con know that you want something different, that you need something better.” (Big Con, for Crowder, is the conservative industrial complex.)

The offending company did not remain nameless for long. The next day, Jeremy Boreing, CEO of The Daily Wire, the right-wing web media company he co-founded with Ben Shapiro, confirmed on your own video that Crowder was talking about an offer from The Daily Wire.

Bored referred to Crowder, who said he’s “not exactly a self-made man”, noting that Crowder has worked for years for companies founded or backed by billionaires, including The Blaze and CRTV.

“Steven, as long as I’ve known him, he’s worked for someone else,” Boreing said, later adding, “Steven’s philosophy seems to be ‘I deserve to get paid millions and millions and millions of dollars if my show generates revenue. “. Or not.’ He is not looking for a business relationship, he is looking for a benefactor”.

shapiro himself responded briefly to Crowder’s video as well, noting that the offer was “negotiable” and that “there’s something quite disgusting about attacking people who have been friends (colleagues, advocates) for over a decade on the basis of their own misinterpretation of a document offering you $50 million over the course of four years.”

In his video, Boreing laid out the numbers: Under the initial offer, which he said he expected Crowder to negotiate, the right-wing YouTube star would earn $50 million over an initial four-year term, with an additional $25 million for an optional contract. two year extension. The offer, Boreing said, was based on what Crowder’s agent had said would be the minimum necessary to get him interested. Other parts of the offer included an additional payment for longer content, as well as $15,000 a day for additional video recordings, Boreing said.

Steven Crowder is the focus of a meme about offensive or controversial opinions.

Those are staggering numbers for mere mortals, but these are conservative media, where the best-kept secret is that many personalities who position themselves as everyday populists are actually swimming in cash—just ask billionaire Sean Hannity.

Notably, Crowder had not mentioned the main number in his own video, though he criticized the “multi-million dollar penalties” he said were part of the terms. Crowder did not immediately respond to a HuffPost request for comment on the Boreing video.

Crowder is feeding off the same channel as generations of right-wing media figures. It’s not a hard recipe to crack: be “edgy,” transphobic, homophobic, sexist, and super racist, and sometimes you’ll profit. Crowder has millions of YouTube subscribers, but the slap fight over his Daily Wire offer shows just how profitable the insult game can be.

In the end, the dispute is a fascinating window into the economics of the right-wing outrage machine, particularly the focus on social media content moderation policies and their importance to the bottom line. More fundamentally, it’s a fun little distraction from the burdens of this cruel world. There really are no losers, save for Crowder and Boreing, who, acting or not, seemed saddened by the ordeal.

This is probably not over either. Crowder said at the start of Tuesday’s video that he had tried to “avoid” discussing the issue, but Boreing told a different story, saying Crowder’s rejection of the Daily Wire deal actually happened. months ago, and that Crowder had called out of the blue a week ago, just before he posted his video, to remove the scab.

“We got off the phone, and then I woke up yesterday and he put this video on us the way he did it,” Boreing said.
