Just days after premiering his new documentary The Price Of Greatness, Carnage is already taking shots from fellow producer Ghastly. In a tweet that has since been deleted, Ghastly called out Carnage’s supposed 530,000 views in 24 hours by stating, “I wasn’t gonna say anything but buying fake views and then lying to us about it, sorry but that just isn’t cool man – a video with near a million views and only 2k likes, it’s not like it wasn’t obvious.”
Carnage responded by disputing Ghastly’s “unwarranted attacks” over the course of several tweets, eventually going as far as to say, “If you can prove I purchased fake views on my documentary I’ll donate 100K to any COVID relief non-profit you want…but if you can’t how about you donate 1K to ANF if you’re so sure that I have faked my numbers.” The Price Of Greatness now boasts over 772,000 views.
UPDATE: Ghastly followed through and uploaded an entire investigative video on YouTube titled “I proved Carnage buys views to make him donate $100K to covid.” Ghastly took Carnage’s challenge and proceeded to state his case, arguing that Carnage had to have bought views in order to amass the numbers he did without the subsequent corresponding likes ratio. Ghastly even went as far as to donate his $1,000 to the ANF as requested by Carnage.
After Ghastly posted the video on his Twitter, Carnage was quick to respond with a long-form statement and corroborating screenshot of his YouTube advertisement. Carnage claimed that his team had worked directly with YouTube and their advertising department to ensure the documentary was prominently featured across the platform. Carnage stated, “Plain and simple working with YouTube to make sure my videos get out to the world is not ‘buying views or faking anything,’ we are just out here hustling. There is so much content and noise out there and you really gotta know how to use platforms and their algorithms.” You’ll notice, as Ghastly noted in a subsequent tweet, that while about 95% of Carnage’s streams came from his YouTube ads, fans on average only watched the documentary for roughly four minutes. However, Carnage then took it to a personal level by closing his statement with, “If your management doesn’t know how to work with YouTube in the correct, authentic, legal way, you should find someone who can help you out then maybe your career would finally blossom.”
After all of this had transpired on Twitter, Carnage fans took it upon themselves to harass Ghastly by hacking his Snapchat account. They flaunted handguns with captions like “Smokin Ghastly pack.” They threatened to release photos of his “little pecker” to his fans, claiming he was “screwed” until he released apologies to every DJ he’s “talked bad about.” They even threatened to waterboard Ghastly! Even Carnage agreed that these actions by his fans were outrageous and did not condone their behavior. Ghastly has contacted authorities regarding the death threats he’s now receiving on Snapchat. This Twitter beef, in my opinion, has gone too far.
