Philip DeFranco : STAY SAFE OUT THERE, EVERYONE! Seriously though, maybe see you tomorrow. I'll keep you updated. ❤️

Dylan Lollar : "Guys if this video is a little shorted it's cause there's a big ass fire near us..." *_MAKES 17 MINUTE LONG VIDEO ANYWAY_*

Bound4Earth : How can so many groups be so ignorant. This is no different then a movie depicting rape. People need to stop claiming that games cannot be art just because they are so small minded. The game will obviously be rated appropriately and just as with movies, it should be up to parents to decide what their children play. Edit: Bad parents support regulation against movies, music and games as a whole because they are too lazy to get involved.

HereInMyCar : I think if that game were a movie or a book it would be treated differently.

Jimmy Lynch : Detroit: Become Human will be an amazing game, and this trailer is the one that truly made me realize this. Games definitely can talk about and portray serious topics if the game is trying to be a serious and mature game, which Detroit: Become Human is

MsLovelifetothefulle : Ahahaha I thought they meant you wont feel like you're* in China because our buses won't be super over crowded. In my mind I thought everyone was just overreacting, as it turns out they were being racists. *Edit: previously wrote your instead of you're 😳

Shy Girl : The game is obviously for older audiences and clearly depicts the abuser as a enemy. Just my thought

Sam Lee : "He pulled his gun and told the dog to stop" What? Did he say sit? Did he really expect the dog to be like "whoops sorry officer, big misunderstanding!"

Anaphriel : I grew up through about 12 years of abuse as a child, my best friend commit suicide due to the abuse he suffered. And, throughout that time, those closest to me either had no clue, or were willfully blind. To this day, child abuse depictions make my blood boil...BUT, as a mentally adjusted individual, I know that stepping in and shooting someone who raises their hands to a kid isn't the way to deal with it. No matter how many movies or video games may show such. And no matter how many people get offended, most individuals know this. Child abuse depictions overall are one of the universal subjects that we *know* are wrong. One of the ultimate objectives in various games, shows, movies, etc is seeing the "bad guy" get their comeuppance. Hell, even John Wick murdered 45 people over his puppy. When we're presented with a known wrong, we have the innate desire to punish it. Scenes like those in Detroit, show us that inaction can be consequential. But overreaction also provides its own consequences. We know this. We also know we're not WWII soldiers, that stealing cars and killing cops is wrong, that we can't run 100 mph and steal gold rings magically hovering in the air. The thought that a projected scenario influences our overall behavior to the point of rewriting our understanding of societal norms...come from those who think people are too stupid to think for themselves. As a father now to a 7 year old, I stay involved in what he's doing. I monitor his TV/Video game input. If it says 18+, then he doesn't get to put his hands on it while I'm around. I play GTA V, yet my son has never seen it. This idea that parents can't get involved, and so they need to fear this thing that's out there is just stupid, and lazy. Stop pointing fingers at everything you don't like, and start being involved with your damn kids.

yes Graph : He ordered a Man to cut his own beloved dog's head off and get administrative leave? Yeah no, that person should goto jail for half a year.

Make Money Online W/ Edson Buchanan : I’m still trying to wrap my “head” around the dog story. Man that was so crazy. Hopefully someone gets fired.

How To Make Sushi : Man, that dog head cutting story was crazy!

FireyCurls22 : Take me to jail, i aint cutting my dogs head off.

Sophie Pownall : It’s truly disgusting that they made someone do that to their pet. It’s utterly horrifying. I feel for the owners, I couldn’t imagine the pain that they have now been left with. R.I.P Bigboy

Meghan H. : As an Illinois native who had to move out of state and pay out the ass for out of state tuition as there is basically no in state tuition offered by the state's largest university, I understand and agree with the sentiments given in Suburban Express's initial statement, but their anger is completely misdirected at innocent students. Our state's mismanagement is not the fault of any foreign student. Their ad was racist and ignorant and invalidates their legitimate point.

Drake Medinger : In regard to the game, and as someone who has experienced abuse, you have taken the right interpretation of this game. I personally say screw the a**hole bandwagon game haters because so many of those shown felt like they just got on the subject because it would boost themselves in their eyes, or the eyes of their supporters. Screw those backwards politicians.

Derek Cliff Crane : lol abusers dont love watching abuse, they like abuse because its power

TnTCinematics2012 : Why did no one ever talk about Binding of Isaac if this is such a big issue?

me free : wtf.... this is the WEIRDEST thing. k obviously NO ONE should ever be asked to do something like that to THEIR OWN PET and ofc I haaaate having to hear all these stories about cops murdering peoples pets and it's so blatantly obvious that literally everyone involved in this is in the wrong(the "professionals", i mean) BUT .... some I do not see commented on is this: even for a rabies exam, assuming any of this were even legal, yes the brain is needed, the test cannot be done otherwise, BUT the brainstem MUST BE completely INTACT, otherwise it is literally useless. pointless, they cannot perform the test properly. this is not something just anyone can do, it MUST be done by the hands of a a professional. beyond the actual mechanics of all this, there's is also a "chain of custody" which *must* be observed.... is their not?! no idea how it works in georgia but literally in every other fucking place on this planet that is how it works. what in the everloving fuck are you all doing down there, murica(im canadian lol)?! ya'll are seriously so fucked and it seems you get more fucked by the day. on another note ... i can honestly say that my pets are literally like my children and at multiple different points in my life have literally been the one and only reason I am still here, sounds dramatic but it's 1000000% truth. if anything like this ever happened I would probably be going to prison for a very, very long time.... all i can think when i hear stories like this is that one day one of these animal murdering cops is going to do this to the wrong persons' pet and it's not going to be a good situation for them, for real.

Summerland : They tried to bump myself and other students from our scheduled classes to bring in foreign students that paid higher tuition. I reminded our local college they had signed a contract to provide me with these classes on a specific timetable to graduate on a specific date. If they failed to do so I would sue them for breach. I was not bumped and once word got out about what I did no one else was. They started another class. Its not bullshit.

Lance Konderla : I love how people always tend to make this complaint that "children are made violent due to video games" and feature games with a mature rating. Maybe if people would stop buying their children games outside of their age range, we wouldn't have this issue. Much like how you won't have to worry about kids getting lung cancer as long as people don't buy their 14 year old a pack of New Ports.

Unlikely Salmon : Remember when the Daily Mail featured a trailer on CoD Infinite Warfare? And then made an article yelling about the violence of videogames? You can always rely on the mainstream media to give an unbiased an accurate story on current "issues". Seriously though, they're trying to silence the message of a game about a horrible crime that revolves around secrecy and silence...

Dierskie * : All the chinese people should ride suburban express so they have no marketing angle

Dingus Mc Long-Schlong : Damn that bus one. I thought they were making a joke about how busses in China are PACKED shoulder to shoulder (I've been on said busses, it was crazy). Turns out, nah, they're just trash.

IVLGG3R : That is an actual problem at a lot of our universities, for instance my school took a lot of students from the gulf states in the Middle East to bring in extra higher priced tuition fees. The schools in the Persian gulf states are a joke compared to the rest of the world so they have a hard time in our school understanding professors and adjusting to the US so they resort to cheating. This ends up harming the individual departments because if they cheat through school and get hired then fired cause they don’t actually know the material the school looks bad for allowing them to graduate. It got bad enough that my school implemented automatic suspensions for people caught cheating and it ended up suspending only students from Saudi Arabia and Qatar which causes the school as a whole to lose their international tuition payments.

Safety Geek Chick : The thought of being forced to cut of my dogs head after he was murdered is absolutely blood curdling. There have been so many news stories in the last few years of cops killing dogs in extremely questionable scenarios, but this has been the most absurd and horrible scenario I have heard to date. I have 2 rescues that are absolutely my babies, I can’t imagine the horror that dog owner went through. Should clarify, I get the dog lunged at someone and had already bit someone. The part that got me was the officer demanding the owner cut off his dog head.

Testsubject276 : "WAAAAAH! GAMES HAVE ABUSIVE CONTENNNNTTTT!" **Movies and books that include violence, gore, murder, etc. exist** "Is gud."

Cringey WhiteBoy : Kavos is trying his hardest to become big by hating on Philip DeFranco and starting drama. Its sad

Justinoid : I stand with Sony, and the bus company ahha

Kevin : Regardless of political views. How is trump being elected a setback for women?

TurboGamingUK : Ffs, games are more than just entertainment. Or at least they can be. They can be well written and make you think, like pretty much any other medium. Video games are just the new media scapegoat now it's not cool and trendy to blame movies for everything

ADN : Nono, you don't understand it DeFranco. If movies or other mediums depict things, its cool and artistic. If videogames do it its terrible and stupid. Nothing to do with these people complaining, and probably their whole social and work circles, being completely disconnected from this "new" medium of entertainment and storytelling, by the way. Nothing at all.

Dootiefinger : Should talk about the pornstar who died after being bullies over social media for not shooting a scene with a gay male actor for risk of stds

seventy two : Would it really be that bad to bring the whole dog? Why just it's head?

Ritsu Thibodeau : I have a lot to say, so bear with me here. When it comes to video games and the way they affect young children I am a perfect example. I have been abused in nearly every way imaginable starting from the age of 3 up until about a year ago. I have been starved on and off for years as a child, been hungry more nights than I've been fed. Even just last year you could still see my rib cage clearly defined under my skin. I've been beaten, stabbed (to the point you can't see the knife blade, stabbed), burned with cigarettes, matches, and chemicals. Forced to eat comet, drink bleach and whatever else they could find under the sink. Choked, flung across the room into walls and furniture, narrowly escaped having fingers removed by pliers, and kicked down the stairs and on the way back up had my face smashed into them....the list goes on. These and more were done by not only my father, but my step father and a few of their friends too. And yes. I was raped many times by a close friend of the family. Screamed at the top of my lungs and begged for help, the whole nine yards. I told everyone. My mother, my classmates, my teachers, the nurse, guidance counselors....people just thought I had a wild imagination to have come up with so much. Nobody believed me except my mother, but she didn't have custody and dad was so charismatic that he got everyone believing I just needed attention cause I had no friends. Nearly 20 years of this I suffered. I thought it would never end, and I reached that breaking point where I wanted nothing else but to either finally die from all this, or rot in jail for the rest of my life from killing them. But you know what stopped me? Video games. Violent video games. That's right, not those silly barbie games, but games with gore, and massive bloodshed and trauma. Games like Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat, Tekken, random indie horror games. IN these games you got to rip peoples limbs off and beat them with them, incinerate people alive while they scream, many many choices to inflict bone crunching pain on your enemies. I had many opportunities to get back at my abusers, but I had a constructive outlet that let me vent those desires out. Video games which depict these things are soothing to a broken person. They help you work with the very pain you've endured and help you see that you aren't alone. I never would have gotten to this point in my life if it weren't for that outlet. I would have killed myself and become another sad statistic, or become a monster to escape the pain. This is why it is so important to me. Why people need to know not to try and flood the world with forced positivity and political correctness through art and entertainment mediums. Sure, you can play fun adventure games like Klonoa, Sonic the Hedgehog, or Mario. Or play tactical games, racing games, and many games without violence or torture in them. But those games don't help you with homicidal tendencies growing up as an abused, emotionally damaged child. You can not teach the world by hiding or covering up the evil within it. Otherwise how would you ever know that other people have been through what you have? I've cried my eyes reading a child called it because not only was it sad and heartwrenching, but it was a cathartic experience to know someone has survived what I was still going through. It was empowering to know that living was possible. So fuck each and every one of those shitheads pointing at video games saying they do more harm than good. I cannot express it enough how wrong they are.

Jennifer A : That story about the dog was beyond messed up. Poor guy. I would've been traumatized to have been forced to cut my pets heads off.

Sarah Jane : I've never commented on your videos before. I understand and agree with your point about Taylor Swift. Her assault is valid and important. It was wrong and shouldn't have happened. However, her being on the front page seems like it's more about her fame. I might be wrong. Happy to be. That's just the feeling I get. I didn't comment on your video the other day but I hoped #metoo was Time's choice although there were some strong candidates. A lot of people are standing against injustice and crime. It's an important time.

lildmckay : As a former student of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I can wholeheartedly say that Suburban Express is one of the scummiest businesses in existence. There are so many screwed up business practices that they employ but here is one example. Suburban Express employs local ticket checkers which meet the bus at the designated pickup spot in order to verify that the riders have the required identification (ID and physical printed ticket) as per their company policy. These ticket checkers typically ride their bike to the meet up location. Students were attempting to take a Suburban express bus O'Hare Airport in order to take a flight home for the holidays. Everyone met at the location but 4 students did not have the proper information and as a result were turned away. This means that they would have no way to get home for the holidays as every other method of transportation is booked by that point. Once everyone else boarded, the ticket checker found that his bike tires had been slashed, presumably by one of the 4 students that had been turned away. He then prevented the bus from leaving until someone came forward with the name of the person responsible. With 40,000+ students at the university the odds were pretty low that someone on the bus actually knew who committed the crime. On top of that, the bike was out of sight so no one actually saw the act take place. The bus was prevented from leaving for several hours as they were interrogated causing many of the passengers to miss the flights that they were trying to catch. No one was compensated for the major inconvenience and every single one of the passengers was banned from riding with Suburban Express in the future. I agree that those that got turned away should have had the proper identification and the tires should not have been slashed. However, the company punished dozens of patrons that were not responsible or involved in any fashion.

Nominal Response : I feel like the prince of saudi arabia is far more important in a global sense than the #meto movement. As important as that movement is, the prince of saudi arabia is by far more important.

Macyyy : This video game trailer caused so much shock is because it's really not that often that children die in entertainment. It's considered taboo to kill a child in a movie and its a line that even the best screen writers don't cross. The examples Phil gave us were huge exceptions-we don't see kids dying (let alone murdered by their dad) even in your average horror movie. Yes that trailer was disturbing, but it also seemed like killing the girl was the cheap easy way to do it. If I look at this trailer art, it was very poorly done. Obviously there isn't enough to dive into a story, character motives, etc. during a trailer and the girl dying was just for shock value. On top of that, I do agree that putting this in the game and the trailer trivializes abuse. You play a game for entertainment, not to deeply ponder the effects of child abuse on our society. A fictional story of a dad beating his kid to death is a unhealthy form of entertainment.

Bowl Of Carrots : 6:32 As someone who travels to China annually, I laughed at this. I agreed with it. Thought it meant that the busses weren't crowded. But then they just dug themselves a bigger hole... Terrible PR team lol

Marcus S : I like you phil, and ive watched you for a while but you should either come clean about your news network, or show us that you are actually using that money.

Madison Mosley : not enough information, the investigator could have really been ripped into by the owner, but bottom line: investigators do not order citizens to risk exposure to pathogens, and investigators do not order citizens to behead a lifeform they had a personal relationship with. or actually, authority does not order citizens to behead any living (or formerly living) being.

Jason Dale : just makes me wonder what would happen to the call of duty franchise if MW2's airport sequence was released in a game today...

Gimli : in universe sandbox you can completely destroy our solar system. you dont hear the SJW's saying "you just killed literally every person and child on this earth" why is it so hard for most media to understand things that happen in videogames dont reflect most everything that happens in real life.

Choyn Guy : Oh my days, It's a story. You wouldn't say this to a movie would you? That's why you have an age rating on games just like movies.

Geoff Reekie : Hope you stay safe from the fires that be. Appreciate you, your team, and all they do. Have followed for years and liked most videos; today I am putting forth my first dislike. Have seen, and appreciated, your commitment against child abuse, your strong stand and its reasons. Understand, but don't agree, with your assessment that this video game promotes choice by allowing people to choose to end it. Unfortunately, I agree with the general reaction that it is gratuitous violence against children, child perv porn and should not be distributed. I hope that you have no stake in promoting or being paid by this company, its distributors or anyone associated with it. If you do, please disclose. I think you made a mistake in this on.... but also respect your right to say what you do. Just my opinion ... and you asked for it. Stay out of the fires.

Allekatrase : There are Mature games and R rated movies. I don't understand the disconnect in peoples mind between different types of media. There have been portrayals of domestic abuse and violence in every form of media but the only one they make a fuss about. I think part of it comes from the notion that games are for kids, but this is not true now and in fact never has been. Sure, there are games for kids, but there are as many or more that are for adults and there always have been. If you want to make the argument that media has an impact on people and children then fine, that's a good argument to make, I won't disagree with you, but you have to apply it to all media not just target one type. Children are probably less likely to read controversial books these days, but with netflix and youtube and a variety of other streaming media I'm pretty sure their access to adult themed entertainment is only video games.

Cindy Love : When I grew up, I saw shows where people had good morals. Now, it's normal to see violence, promiscuity and aberrations. If you think the normalization of this is not affecting culture then wake up and smell the coffee.

Rob Vespa : That Time magazine considered Trump for person of the year (their second option?) sickens me. Regarding the "people of the year" - I can't express how important this is... AND it feels like a zeitgeist grab. It isn't person of the year. Why not dedicate an issue to this topic (perhaps, if it won't detract from the content, incorporate both genders)... and then there's the dog incident - Our justice department continually disappoints and instills fear in me.
