He said: "You guys obviously know, we never care about the money, so we don't give a f**k about monetization and stuff like that, but now they're just age-restricting our last four videos. So you have to be signed in, have an account, and they don't recommend it. But a lot of people don't watch with an account. It destroys the views, so I don't even know if we're going to keep uploading on YouTube."
