Just in case you missed it, less than a month ago Caspar Lee and KSI released their feature length debut movie, Laid In America. Whilst the movie was immediately made available as a digital download, it looks like some fans didn’t want to pay the £3.49 to support their favourite YouTubers as KSI just went on the most foul-mouthed rant ever about pirating and movie theft.
In a seven minute video, KSI single handedly managed to yell every single curse word in existence at those fans of his that have been downloading his latest movie on torrenting websites instead of downloading it properly. One of the many valid points that he makes throughout the video is that there is simply no need for it: “Trust me, there isn’t a shortage of places where you can go to get this f*cking thing. So why the f*ck are you watching it without paying for it? You stealing mother-f*cking piece of sh*t”. You can see his seething rant below:
Whilst it’s not clear what the extent of this pirating has been, KSI makes a very shocking statement that “Laid In America is going to be the most illegally downloaded movie of last month and this month as well… what the f*ck?!”. Thankfully KSI does begin to calm down a touch as the video progresses, and we’re able to get to the root of the problem;
“I’m not the only one that made this movie, there were hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that make this movie. It’s not just me you’re f*cking over, you’re f*cking over so many people”
He later admits that he wants to ensure that Laid In America secures enough downloads so they can fund a Laid In America 2 (!!!), but still can’t grasp the fact that his YouTube channel gives nearly 15 million subscribers free videos, and yet they refuse to pay for the one thing he actually asks them too – which is fair enough really.
In the comments section, however, fans are pointing out what a “hypocrite” KSI is being about the topic of pirating, after it was revealed he had pirated a copy of Sony Vegas to create his YouTube content. You can see the reaction to his criticism below as he went public on Twitter:
