“Hey guys I apologize for Episode 26 of Talk To B that was uploaded this evening. I was actually on set when it was uploaded, and when I finished I got into the car and was trying to crosscheck what was uploaded and I just started seeing different comments about it skipping, being bad and all, someone even said I should remove the rubbish I uploaded on YouTube. This is painful, this got to me so bad because I put in so much in it. I put so much into creating content even when there is no money in it. I am so bothered, I am so troubled, this pain me so much because I have put in so much effort, resources, time, and energy into doing this”.
“I’m so sorry, there’s a serious technical issue with Episode 26. We have to pull it down immediately, please bear with me, while we rectify the issue. I apologize for the disappointment. I’m so down right now”.
Some of her colleagues took to the comment section to console her.
