Tangerine Travels Reacting To Mean Comments

in funny •  4 months ago

One thing about being in the public eye is that it forces you to develop a thick skin very quickly. We get our fair share of mean comments and that's accentuated by the fact that we're not afraid to cover controversial topics. Of course, not a single mean comment has come from Steem. No surprise there.

In today's video, we react and respond to a few of the downright mean comments we've received. People can be vile, especially online. We've learned to take their comments with a grain of salt and a few shots of tequila. Hope you enjoy :)

hello friends, it's a pleasure for me to comment, I saw them a few days ago in a video where they made a game of words, and I'm very interested, because I speak Spanish and I'm learning English. I say the opposite of you, I hope that in Mexico they have already learned a lot that was great, because now I see this video and I congratulate you also that they make an incredible couple are in line with what they do full of humor, and with respect to today's topic, many people discriminate when we are in strange countries, but this is the life we ​​will not get to be gold coins for all, the important thing is to go ahead and smile even from the bad .. a pleasure to Jordan and mary, greetings from venezuela. @ wenydth16

Thanks for your wonderful comment. We've had a lot of people tell us that they're learning English by watching our videos. We provide subtitles for all of our videos to help you out if you're also trying to use our videos to learn the language.

We really appreciate you watching and commenting. Thank You!!!

Tt is a pleasure for me, that you answer me, have a nice day my friends, Well, I know some English , the wrinting and grammar, but not speaking very well for the lack of practice here in venezuela, you know my native languague is spanish , I think that the best way to learn some lenguague is to be to a country who speak it, in orden to practice a lot, if you go to the supermarket you must speak it because you need it,that is, you are forced to speak it..so you must practice the spanish in mexico. I am going to follow you because I enjoy and learn the way you have your live.. a lot of luck.... kisses..!

Flagged for not linking back to anything Steem related in your Youtube description.

Sorry if you did in your video, (didn't watch all of it)

·

I think we're the last ones who should be flagged for not promoting Steem.

  • We send 1,000s of unique visitors to Steemit every week. We send more non-steemians to Steemit than just about anyone else.
  • From our @tangerinetravels, @shenanigator, and @sharingeverybite accounts, we're delegating 30,000 SP free of charge to projects/people who are doing a lot to grow Steem. (@STACH to grow the Nigerian community and @kachinhenry to grow the myanmar community)
  • One of the major reasons that we're growing our YouTube channel is so we can promote Steem. We've grown it from 0 to over 4,300 subscribers in a few months and are currently growing at a rate of over 100 subscribers per day.
  • 2 weeks ago we produced a video promoting Steem that has so far been seen by 4,400 people, most non-steemians. 55% of our audience lives in Mexico, a country which has very little presence on Steem, and could benefit greatly from it.
  • We often wear Steemit gear in our videos.
  • A lot of people are curious about how a young couple can afford to travel, which makes a perfect segue into telling them about Steem.
  • We spend quite a few hours each day working on another Steem project.
  • Visit our YouTube profile, and you'll see that we have a prominent link to Steemit in our banner as well as one in the description of our profile. https://www.youtube.com/c/tangerinetravels

I think we're the last ones who should be flagged for not promoting Steem.

The flag wasn't related to your previous promotion or not of Steem.

·
·
·

I thought you were flagging because we weren't promoting Steem in our YouTube description.

But I was mistaken, as I found out in private messaging with you, you wanted that in the description because that's how you determine whether or not someone else's content is being used. That's understandable.

We do have links to our Steemit page on our YouTube profile page to prove that it's our channel.

·
·
·
·

I thought you were flagging because we weren't promoting Steem in our YouTube description.

You're not mistaken.

For about 800USD in reward it seems like could could slide this in between all of the amazon referral and stuff.

·
·
·
·
·

Putting something in the YouTube description is practically worthless for promotion. It only does any good if you’re putting it there AND talking about it in the video.

We had an Airbnb link there for a few months and not a single person had signed up. The day we mentioned it in a video, 15 people signed up.

It was pretty much the same thing with Amazon.

Almost nobody reads the description unless we tell them to. The only reasons we write all of that stuff in there is for YouTube's and Google's eyes. It ranks our videos higher, gets them shown to more people, and ultimately will give us a huge stage to promote Steem.

We’re doing so much to promote Steem. Having a link there is meaningless compared to what we’re already doing.

·
·
·
·
·
·

If it's so meaningless maybe you should consider either improve your description by removing the useless stuff or not dropping your content on the front-page if you can't respond to criticism in a constructive manner.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

If I were new to Steem and the first thing I saw after hearing about it was the trending page of Steemit, I'd be like "Nah, this isn't for me." The front page needs the variety if we want mass adoption.

As long as promo bots are a thing, we need more excellent content creators pushing their stuff to the top. What we don't need more of is crypto-related stuff, garbage technical analysis, and infighting.

I feel like I responded to your criticisms in a very reasonable matter. I gave my point of view, gave a couple examples of my experience, and did it without getting mad or calling anyone names.

I don't agree with you on this point. But feel I disagreed with you in a respectable way.

·

@transisto That's a shame.

·

Really comments

I am really happy on your success. You grew your subscribers and followers since the day I followed you. I am very excited to your success. I hope you continue to grow more and stay safe always while on adventure of travelling...😂🤣😁

·

his hard work pays off

Haha .. Funny!
I liked your style
Wonderful work .. for more creativity..

Bless God Some people are really stupid, they are not concerned about your success. It's just poor.
Keep it up. You're all right. Good job. This is a fun one. But the numbers are not false. Good work gringos

·

Thanks so much, we really appreciate that. Glad you enjoyed the video :)

haha the stinky gringo's haha. thats the best. Go and have a shower. God bless. Some people are really stupid an they do not begrudge you your success. That's just poor.
Keep it up. You did everything right. Good work

·

It's a good thing we found that out at the very beginning. Otherwise, we may have done the entire video without realizing how stinky we were ;)

·
·

Hahaha, perfect reply :-D
We could even smell it online - and are glad you fixed the issues now - lol

This one is the funniest so far. Haters gonna hate, potatos gonna potatoe. You made me relax about the current critiscism and hate I've received. But numbers don't lie. Good job gringos.

·

Hahaha, potatoes gonna potate. Love it! Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for watching :)

That's the thing with the worldwide web, you are publicly exposed to both people who will love you, and people who will hate you. I'm sorry on behalf of the Mexicans who are trying to expel you from the country. Wherever you go, you will experience this kind of rejections to different degrees. I have definitely experience it in the USA and I know it is not pretty. I am convinced that people who hate on others just for being different do so because of lack of exposure to different experiences and cultures. That being said, you are doing something about it by exposing yourselves to different scenarios, and they are not. Keep up what you are doing. These people will come and go.

·

We probably get more than 100 great, welcoming comments for every 1 negative comment, so it's really no big deal. We've learned to not let it bother us and just laugh at it. The vast majority of our audience are amazing people who remind us exactly why we're doing this. Thanks for everything!

Lmao, u read the caps lock message in CAPS LOCK.. 😂😂😂

·

We're just talking how they're typing Lol

ROTFL! "green-go-back-home"? really?! That was savage I must say! You guys really have tough skins, how could you stomach all those bile without developing diarrhea? lol

·

Hahaha, we had some trouble stomaching them in the beginning but we've been forced to learn to not take the comments too seriously. Trolls will be trolls.

·
·

yea yea. Ugly trolls with stones in their hearts. LMAO. But at the end of the day, their comments will make the show even more interesting!

I hope that only happened in the networks. Sometimes people can be really mean. For me you are very welcome to Mexico!!!

·

Thank you :) Most of our mean comments come from Facebook groups, in particular, a handful of US expats who have a superiority complex.

Don't worry about them @TangerineTravels !
Some people suck. We all know that.

Just do your best with your videos, that's all.
Good luck !

·

We've learned to not let these comments bother us. Instead, we attempted to make an entertaining video. Whether we were successful at that, well, the jury's still out.

It's good to see that they take these comments with such good humor not to feed the troll just leave them speechless

·

If we took all the negative comments seriously, we'd have a lot of crappy days. Thanks for watching :)

Ohhhh guys I know what you're talking about.
For me also as a person standing in public it's very familiar.

Often I ask myself if the people really think what they are saying?
Keep on going guys ;)

·

I highly doubt that a lot of these people would say these things to our faces, but behind the protection of a phone or a computer screen, it's so much easier. It makes you develop a thick skin and not take things to heart so easily, doesn't it?

I had quite a good laugh with this one here, great job!

Thanks for showing us how to perfectly deal with trolls!!! :-)

LOVED and RESTEEMED (shouted out loud)

·

Thank you Marly :) We could've ignored them but decided to have some fun with it instead! Thanks for the resteem!

Some people have actually stripped themselves of every shred of humanity left in them. How can people say this to other people and be cool with that? This is wickedness with total disregard for consequences. How do they get to sleep at night? I really admire you guys a lot and I am perfectly happy you showed their names to see if they are actually proud of themselves. Their comments are totally uncalled for. If they don't like it, they should just go. They don't have to use hateful words. Hateful words come from those who have troubles loving themselves. They just displayed their internal demons, the battles going on inside them.

They are seeking for relevance, looking for ways to channel their anger and I am delighted you didn't take it too much to heart. You know people like this comes with the territory.

We've learned to take their comments with a grain of salt and a few shots of tequila.

That is the way. Their sarcasm doesn't help one iota. I love this, laugh it off. I can't even hear their complaints over the applause.

You are doing absolutely great and I am happy you have met kinder people in Mexico, so that is not a reflection of who Mexicans are. I am super proud of you guys and I am always rooting for you.

I love the way you are dealing with this and feeling undeterred about it.

This funny video is a perfect response. This makes it lighter and better. Reading in capslock hahahaha

·

Some people have actually stripped themselves of every shred of humanity left in them. How can people say this to other people and be cool with that? This is wickedness with total disregard for consequences. How do they get to sleep at night?

Is it ever. The comments got even worse today.

You are doing absolutely great and I am happy you have met kinder people in Mexico, so that is not a reflection of who Mexicans are. I am super proud of you guys and I am always rooting for you.

Thankfully, we have you and a lot of other wonderful people by our side, cheering us on the whole time. It makes the process a whole lot easier. It's all just a part of the process, I suppose ;)

·
·

Absolutely, it is all part of the process and the applause is so loud that their mean words will always be at the background. Well done guys.

I love your approach to this, just laugh it off. Yaaaaay!.

Seriously? I find your videos entertaining and fun most of the time like 9 out of 10. I can't imagine why people would leave mean comments to your post unless they don't have any sense of humor.

·

Yeah, who knows what their motivations are? It's a lot easier to type out a mean comment on a computer than to say the same thing to someone's face. Thankfully, these comments are only a tiny fraction of the ones we receive. Thanks for watching :)

I don't understand why these people don't just remain silent which saves their time and the person's being persecuted. Why ca't they just live their own lives?

·

We completely agree. If only they could just live their own lives? Thankfully, we've learned to not take them to seriously and continue to enjoy what we're doing. Thanks for watching!!

Don't worry about them
Some people suck. We all know that. we are always with you

Just do your best with your videos, that's all.
Good luck !

·

Thank you! We tried to have some fun with this one :)

This is humans.. We are looking for something to critisize, we want to compete, we envy each other and we are not kind to each other. Don't listen to such people but enjoy the nice words from people who can appreciate the work of others 😉 Keep up the good work and stay positive!

·

Thankfully, our comment sections are usually filled with great, informative, and funny comments and those like the ones in this video are rare. Thanks for watching :)

haha the stinky gringo's haha. thats the best. Go and have a shower. God bless Some people are really stupid and they do not begrudge you your success. That's just poor.
Keep it up. You did everything right. Good work. A fifth of people are against everything at all times. Intelligent people have a right over the ignorant: the right to instruct them.

·

Thankfully, the mean comments are well in the minority. But sheesh, some people are just downright mean!! The day after posting this, we got what was basically a death threat. C'mon people!

Thanks for commenting, we're glad you found it entertaining!

I loved this! This puts Mean Tweets to shame! Keep it up!

·

This puts Mean Tweets to shame!

What a compliment!! Thanks so much!

·
·

The way you YELLED out the comments had me cracking up! This should really be sent in to mean tweets to show them how it is should be properly done! Forget celebrities! It happens to real people, too! I just loved it!

lol!!!
at $647.66 now!

Just ignore Transisto and his flagging, he is part of the Berniesanders group who are the Steemit Mafia. They like to police Steemit and control it. Anyone not bowing to them are punished (flagged!)

I think @1:41 he meant that Trump is trying to tax Mexico for the WALL.......
so Americans need to leave Mexico, lol!

One of your funniest videos for sure;0) Love the thought of taking the negative criticism with "a grain of salt and a few shots of tequila". Although it's obvious, I will still note that jealousy can be pretty comical if properly interpreted. I personally think you are both fantastic beings for simply doing what you find interesting and important despite how unorthodox it may seem to some. As far as I am concerned, you are both living your dream and are awesome enough to share your adventures with us all. As for the haters....my question is why would they continue to watch and comment on your videos if they are not enjoying your contribution? Who has that kind of time?!?!?!?!?!

·

Really!! Who has that time?!? If you don't like it, move on :)

Me gusta realmente lo que haces, hace semanas vi un vídeo tuyo y me impresiono mucho en la forma que te destacas, excelente amigo. Saludos desde VENEZUELA

·

Muchas gracias por el cumplido!

This is too funny! Reminds me of the "Mean Tweets" segment on Jimmy Kimmel... You guys are hilarious - so glad you're letting any negativity roll off of your backs. Keep doing you, it's definitely working for you! :D looking forward to following more of your journey you cute couple, you!

·

Thank you, you're awesome! Following you now too :)

·
·

Yey!! :) Thank you!

LMFAO!!! real comedy. You made my day thanks a lot @tangerinetravels

·

Hahaha, glad you enjoyed it. Did you have a favorite part?

wow, amazing couples doing amazing things. Keep doing it no matter what, people have their own opinion depending on their perceptions.

·

We're loving what we're doing, so you can bet that we'll keep at it :)

entertained me hahaha

Hello friend, I have followed you on Steemit, please be kind enough to follow me as well. Lets make steemit a great community together. Thanks & Regards

·

Hi, I am new here. I am wondering if anyone responds and follow you after you send a message like that.

·
·

There are many people who agree to make friends, and some people do not like it, but I do not want to have many friends, to share about coffee, thanks

·
·
·

How about us? Are we friends yet?

·
·
·
·

you remember me, i'm @azzan

please follow and upvote

·

You drive a hard bargain!

·
·

Lol, @tmonkell, you're the only one getting an upvote from us in this thread.

·
·
·

It's normal to be discriminated, untill some neo-nazi retarded smash someone or kill him because he's different to that bag of trash -i'm reffering the agressor as that way-, and then things turn ugly. I apreciate your work @tangerinetravels. Respect being insulted because people see gringos as smelly is because some of gringos -and europeans- are not used -sadly- to some place's 'frantic' hygiene. Nobody like to be in a good and freshy place and then forgot to smell good and the people around reminds your hygiene manors in a akward sense...

Good video. Very interesting.

There will always be haters and trolls.

Hahahaha wow that's a great funny post

Haha this is funny, thanks for sharing!👍😎

·

We have to laugh about it otherwise we'll be crying ourselves to sleep 😂

Super post !!! very nice !!!

Congratulations @tangerinetravels!
Your post was mentioned in the Steemit Hit Parade in the following category:

  • Pending payout - Ranked 1 with $ 652,85

And they say Mexicans in Mexico are so nice ?

·

They are! The vast majority of comments are super nice, it's only the rare one that's mean.

Semoga sukses selalu kawan...

Hahaha.
I can feel the smell lol.

Good post bro, saludos desde venezuela :)

the whole world in fact has become stinky

·

LOL!! Humans, stinky humans!

water on a ducks back

·

Just let that water slide right off...and then make a YouTube video about it 👍

·
·

exactly! gonna find y'all on YouTube sub back if ya like!

·
·
·

Awesome, thanks!

Well the thing is steemit was suppose to be a fair and wonderful platform, instead its becoming scammy because of bots and really stupid posts on trending page. There are some who keep making similar posts and just keep manipulating the writeup and post everyday paying the bots to make some cash on trending page. Some have been making great videos and posting great articles and donot pay the bots, which leads to earning a few cents to a few dollars. I have seen really fantastic travel vlogs and posts, that did not do well here. Paying bots when your post is not good enough, takes away the chances of good content creators. Bots are good if used wisely and with limits. I feel if this greed and stupidity continues, steemit will have a miserable end, as there are better sites/platform coming soon for sure..

Valid position for sure @veerall. I am relatively knew here and working on my fresh content but have definitely seen a surge of bots from the time I was on the sidelines up to when I decided to join in on the engagements directly.

Some famous people have said that racism will not stop until Black word will be stopped from Blackout day/Until the roads will be stopped making black in color but still its ok until the tissue paper is white to wipe the _____.Actually people should protest against anything which is human created or made by some one.What can a person do for the natural things which happens???We should understand.We must understand.

Yes, thick skin is key in life for sure and I'm Oatmeal hehe.

·

Start a YouTube channel and you'll grow a thick skin quickly LOL. What's the story behind "Oatmeal"?

·
·

YouTube terminated my Ojawall channel in 2017 over a video response, fair use, video made in 2009. YouTube deleted thousands of my videos that I've been making since 1996.

Enjoyed the video. And learned a lot, your post has been great. Thank you for posting so beautiful. There are more such posts that are available. I want to be one of your best friends. Make me friends I come to you, you will be my best friend.

@tangerine... You guys are great... I love your work okay 👌

mucha diversion me a gustado tu estilo,buen trabajo de tu parte felicidades @tangerinetravels.

Best funny picture

i always love your funny videos sis
why that f***** people downvote your post?, hmmm

·

Awe, thank you!!! Oh well, it has about 400 upvotes and only 1 downvote. Not the worst ratio ever haha.

Hahaha, this is funny, so i like this.
