    hope that this answers ur questions guys! love u, and i will see u guys a-next time :) EDIT: for any questions on us not being able to respond to YT comments - it was protocol, not a "contracted" rule or a "fire-able" offense, but we were definitely told that we were not supposed to do it. anyone who has done it either has a different contract than i did or is just flaunting the rules (which some do and I did a few times). and, yes, none of the ladylike girls are allowed to be in my videos anymore!

    Ok can this stupid trend of complaining about Buzzfeed end already? All of you guys who are quitting say the most repetitive shit and just sound like whiny, ungrateful lazy workers. "They don't let us do our own content and material outside of Buzzfeed" yeah because the place that hires you is so gonna let you do the same thing they're doing but just on your own time, and still pay you right? That doesn't sound greedy at all?? You're hired by them, you work under them, you can bring new things to the plate to your job, not do the same thing outside of it. They paid you to be ungrateful basically..just so you guys can get a your million subscribers, bet you want your own t-shirt next. ALL OF YOU GUYS WHO QUIT ARE VERY PRETENTIOUS...and greedy. Yeah a company you work for is totally gonna want to make shirt with your name on them and not their brand lol what job is fucking like that? Get over yourselves seriously.

    I can't believe how many people have left Buzzfeed, I genuinely love everyone who's left and Buzzfeed isn't the same without you guys. I know everyone had their own reasons for leaving and it's understandable. That company needs to improve some things because if they keep losing people, even getting new people in, they're gonna lose their magic. At least for me. I loved Ladylike, you girls were awesome and you made great content. But I'm happy you did what is best for you and I hope you keep making videos on your own terms and you get to really create the content YOU want to and feel passionate about. Supporting you all the way Safi! <3

    Safiya I honestly respect your decision.  A long time ago I quit working to look after my grandfather.  I couldn't afford to do it.  He had to support me and was willing to do so, but I knew the decision would hurt my hire-ability, after he eventually died.  Many people say it was nice thing to do, but it was hard and really my career path. 
    Major life changing events are hard, but if it really means that much to you then you made the right decision.
    I want you to know that I understand your decision.  As one modern lady to another I wish you luck and perseverance.

    If Freddie and the TryGuys leave, I'm done with BuzzFeed. It's gone in a direction that I don't enjoy watching anymore and I roll my eyes every time I see a BuzzFeed video or article now. I used to want to come out and try to write there but now I don't really want to do that anymore.

    I wont lie i didnt really watch buzzfeed but watched this video and i thought i was awesome that you provided valid reasons like that, and i really agree with a lot of the aspects you mentioned. I can imagine the feeling of creating content and then not having capability of expressing appreciation to your fans. Glad you are happy though ^_^

I am sorry for the buzzfeed experience, but am thankful I got to see you and the girls of ladylike. You have always been my favorite. Thank you for continuing to put out silly videos and being yourself. Much love, and support! <3 Sorry about buzzfeed being a jerk face.

    That's not right that you and everyone at buzzfeed are not allowed to comment on the videos your in town explain something or to help someone and you should be allowed to have the ladylike cast be in your videos that is you and whoever said choice to make videos with them and I hope that buzzfeed changes there ways because there going to start losing a lot of good people like you Candace and Chris so I hope they get rid of that rule

    Owning your name and "brand" in a way and selling it when you have no control over what they make yet your name is on it is controlling.

    If they hire people without business degrees to do business and producers without a degree in producing. And if they just let the creators act in the skits of course it'll be unclear! I think the problem with Buzzfeed is they don't know how to run a company or a business. They are muddled there is no clear direction or security it needs to be revamped because it's going downhill (I mean it was always crxp content but still..) Now it's bias liberal garbage shoved down your throat. They need direction, creativity, and time. And qualified people (even without a college degree if the case fits) to run these shows. They need to have goals, schedules, projects, actual producers (even if small time) and directors. Quality over quantity and not just a bunch of clickbait or racist crxp. When I go to college maybe I'll make something that combats buzzfeed. A real business. Don't let people run a company who don't know what the fxck they're doing!
