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!

I have a hard feeling, would you feel it off for me?

Author Maria Fernanda Perdomo ( ago)
You left ???? Where have I been lol

Author Lucian Lovelle ( ago)
It's really good to see you doing what you love. Being controlled like that must have been really frustrating, even if it was part of what you signed into, especially when they started to approach that line, like you said.
I'm loving what you do here; thank you for letting us know!

Safi!! you were the only reason I watched BuzzFeed!! I am changing to your channel now!!

Author Jules Elyse ( ago)
As a communications major who's planning on going into TV production, you should've gotten credit on the projects you worked on.

Author Nils Moberg ( ago)
omg your last name is "Nygaard", isn't that a nordic/scandinavian name?

Author Ella Jane ( ago)
In movies even if paramount or fox owns the proceeds of a movie everyone still knows the director. Everyone still knows James Cameron as the face of a movie bc he's the director of the film and the studio makes sure the credits are given to cast members. Buzzfeed doesn't do that I've noticed. That's not cool to me

Author Ella Jane ( ago)
I always wondered why buzzfeed never put in the description box who directed the video who came up with the script idea like writer and who were the actors bc in any media production those are the main people I always look for. Very odd buzzed does that

I miss the old ladylike crew

Author isa chambers ( ago)
You were always my favourite in buzzfeed

Author sara mirkovic ( ago)
I have been watching BuzzFeed videos for forever, and I think that many employees there made it for what it is. It was a good decision to leave, your creativity shouldn't have boundaries. You shoudn't have someone, who is quite the opposite, over your head telling you what you can and can't do, because you were a big part of BuzzFeed every true fan will know and love.

Author Natalie Martinez ( ago)
I loved watching you in Ladylike, but I definitely understand why you decided to leave and I support your decision. (for what that's worth) I'm sad that you won't be able to do any videos with the ladylike girls (especially Freddie)! Good luck with everything, and I hope this decision helps you reach your long term goals!

Author Hopes And Rainbows ( ago)
Hey! I just wanted to tell you that I love you so much, and I will support you no matter what you decide or what direction you want to go with your career path. I hope this brings you happiness! 😘

Saf was one of my favourites from Buzzfeed because of Ladylike. Everyone I liked the most from Buzzfeed has left now, the disintegration amuses me. I only watch the Try Guys now.

Author Ricky Xiong ( ago)

Author ForeignKnife ( ago)
You did the right thing. Good job.

Author Anna harding ( ago)
is Freddie still there?? or does she have her own channel now

Author mike garcia ( ago)

Author Nia Bothwell ( ago)
This was such an informative video. I believe anyone in the entertainment business or makes content (or is interested in doing so) and making a living from it should watch this. There is a trade-off when involved in this line of work, but it's always good to have a body of work on the side that's purely your own. Even if it's small, it's YOUR work and no one can take it from you.

Author Dane Crouch ( ago)
from what I can see from the suggestions after watching this video, she left BuzzFeed to do very similar things that seem like something BuzzFeed would do, but like i said this is only what i have seen from the suggestions.

Author SilvysSpace ( ago)
everyone on buzzfeed who i love has left, except a few people and try guys

Author Ryan Mason ( ago)
Anybody who subs I will sub back!

Author Ryan Mason ( ago)
Glad your doing well I was a big fan!

"Why I Left BuzzFeed"

To get 8 million views on her own channel and make more money

Author Bloodshot Red ( ago)
When are you buzztards gonna realise how racist and sexist cumfeed is? Seriously. When are they gonna make a "Questions white people have for black people" video? Oh wait never because that's extremely racist. But when you reverse the roles then suddenly you liberals then go ape shit saying "OMG YES THIS IS SO TRUE YOU WHITE PEOPLE ALWAYS ARE LIKE THIS". Fuck all you feminazis and cucks and your anti white/straight/male mindset. Go ahead, give me your hate. ;)

Author Bnic5 ( ago)

Yo I have that same sequin pillow case

Author La Serpenta Canta ( ago)
why did she leave?? she's the type of moronic cesspool perfect for buzzfeed.

Author Nick Brown ( ago)
buzzfeed is complete shit. I watched it back when it was "restore your faith in humanity" now it's "ways guys need to change before we remove their balls" or "$.25 fetus vs $1 billion million burger".

Author Aetheon Pro ( ago)
I thought you were going to talk about the sexism against men and the male bashing

Author Lone Wolf ( ago)

Author sungyeollie ( ago)
honestly if you hadn't started your own channel, although I've seen you plenty on buzzfeed, i never would've known your name <3 love you and supporting you!!!!

Author Joseph Boykin ( ago)
All we watch buzzfeed for is ladylike and the try guys 😂😂😂 I mean I love Ashley and kelsie and Steven, but honestly they are the Kelly and Michelle's of the company. Ladylike and the try guys are the Beyoncés. Lol
