Comments from Youtube

Boris Gulić : 8.5k flat earthers disliked the video.

Emma Kingston : *gets excited in Canadian*

Jake : Watch 9:45 without context

Pablo123456x : There are no flat earthers in the top comments. Obviously the CIA and NASA are behind it. Or maybe they are slowly dying by not taking vaccines for preventable diseases.
