Downward Spiral and giving up PIXAR Poops
"If you’re one of these people with the f*cking delusion that I will listen to your hackneyed demands, you need to unsubscribe RIGHT NOW. I DON’T WANT YOU SUBSCRIBED."
– EmpLemon addressing his fans after so much pestering.
In 2016, EmpLemon gave up Pixar poops after his fans kept pestering him to do more. He also stated that he's not going to do Frying Dory. In a recent video, he's stated one of the main reasons his Downward Spiral began was because his fans got mad at him because he wanted to make Green Simpsons videos.
The Downward Spiral has allowed EmpLemon to do things that most YouTubers don't do, such as making deliberately offensive videos, asking people to unsubscribe, and standing up to his uncharitable/insolent fans. Despite this, his channel has experienced the most rapid growth in its history during the Downward Spiral.
EmpLemon uploaded his final YouTube Poop called "YTP Tennis: Go Crazy?" on December 18, 2017 and since then has mainly focused on his rants, meme reviews, and his YouTube Geographic series.
Behind the Meme Rant
In 2017, EmpLemon made a video about how Behind the Meme was ruining the memescape, and provided a large amount of evidence to support this fact. This caused many people to see how Behind the Meme is cancer and gave EmpLemon exposure outside of the YTP community.
However, Behind the Meme's fans attacked EmpLemon in the comments section of the video. EmpLemon responded by turning their comments into a "Try not to Cringe" compilation. Notably, the late Pie Pivotmontier -O commented on this video, stating that "people who have anime profile pics shouldn't even use the word cringe."
(Ironic, because once on Pie's his twitter, he posted a picture of someone on 4Chan harassing him about 'taking interest' in an unnamed fictional character.)
EmpLemon told people that harassing Behind the Meme was unnecessary, and more trouble than it's worth. Based on his recent insensitive actions, Emp concluded that Behind the Meme was so clueless and innocent, that he very possibly might just think that he's doing nothing wrong in his Meme cultural appropriation.
"Like I said in my last video on Behind the Meme, enough is enough."
In December 2017, EmpLemon ranted about YouTube Rewind 2017 and how the video ignored all the issues that YouTubers had to go through during the year. EmpLemon started a movement called #TankTheRewind in which he convinced viewers to dislike the YouTube Rewind 2017 video and make it the most disliked video in YouTube history and surpass the music video for Baby by Justin Bieber at 8.47 million dislikes. Although it didn't become the most disliked video in history, the Rewind received a huge amount of backlash - even from the people in it.
EmpLemon's #TankTheRewind video ended up receiving far fewer views than he expected. After looking into the view metrics, he discovered that YouTube effectively blacklisted the video from recommended lists. Ironically, the 2018 YouTube Rewind would receive even worse backlash for continuing the problematic trends of the last Rewind and including unnecessary political messages. In a week, it would become the most-disliked video in YouTube history, inadvertently rendering the #TankTheRewind movement successful a year after it was meant to be achieved. However, in a rant video against YouTube for blocking Mumkey Jones' channel, he said he did not want to put the TankTheRewind movement under this, claiming that doing so would be like "taking credit for predicting a flood after a hurricane".
Shifting to the community
Emplemon started to focus more about Youtube, memes and the Youtube community and less on YTP. In fact, the last YTP so far is on december 2017. He reviews memes with his "Minute Memes" Series, as well as makes informative, high quality Youtube Geographics, although the topics are not that trendy. He even makes a series of videos called Never Ever. He also hosts a podcast called "State of the YouTube" with his friends and fellow YouTubers Mumkey Jones and Rusty Cage.
He has begun a respected commentaries about the community he cares about, one of which he rejects the new Youtube Rewind 2018, opposed demonetization and the corruption within the Youtube executives, opposed Article 13 and even supported Pewdiepie during the climax of 'The Great Subscribers War'.
Recently, he has made a video talking about the complaints from YTP fans and his own history in Youtube. According to him, he feels like he has been treated unfairly by the YTP community, although some has changed their mind and those who still continued being against, such as his ex-adored Stuart K. Reilly, losing relevancy.
He also has a 2nd channel and suggest that his channel would have ended like his 2nd channel if he gave up doing Youtube as a whole, or to the very least as a hobby.
It is known that he'll be graduating college, despite his focus on Youtube.
It is unknown what EmpLemon will be making about, although it has been implied that he's going to make more YouTube related documentary videos, shitposts, ridiculing normies, and Meme Theory.
He recently came out as a vegan and he hates how people treat his animal friends. He's also part of the Asian Vegan Squad. He also hates Reddit, but mainly Redditors.
