The popular YouTube personality Joe Vargas, or “Angry Joe,” has taken to Twitter and YouTube to express his contempt for the company Nintendo and their policies in regards to online videos containing footage of their IPs.
A recent video uploaded by Vargas featuring himself and friends playing Mario Party 10 was flagged by Nintendo claiming to contain copyrighted content. Though the video was left online and viewable by YouTube, Vargas decided that he had had enough and removed the video himself.
Taking to his Twitter, Vargas criticized Nintendo for flagging his video saying, “I hope [Nintendo] enjoyed the free ad revenue & coverage I generated for em. It will be my last Nintendo video.” Vargas went on to Tweet out that he has personally spent around $900 on Nintendo consoles, games, etc. in order to make Nintendo related content, and criticized the company’s constant release of new Amiibos, which he referred to as “Ultra-beeniebabies.”
Speaking to Polygon, Vargas said “I feel their policies are anti-YouTuber in a world where so many other companies are embracing the YouTube community.”
He has since released a video on his YouTube channel called, ‘Final Nintendo Angry Rant! – Anti-YouTuber Policies,” and claims, “I have not seen this kind of behavior from any other modern, web 3.0 company or gamer-friendly company out there.” Check out the video below (NSFW language).
