    Why I Left BuzzFeed! You guys really, really wanted to know, and I hope this answers your questions. Once again, these are the reasons I decided to leave and I'm not trying to speak for anyone else. I will see you guys on Tuesday for another video!
    Much love, Saf.

hope that this answers ur questions guys! love u, and i will see u guys a-next time :) EDIT: for any questions on us not being able to respond to YT comments - it was protocol, not a "contracted" rule or a "fire-able" offense, but we were definitely told that we were not supposed to do it. anyone who has done it either has a different contract than i did or is just flaunting the rules (which some do and I did a few times). and, yes, none of the ladylike girls are allowed to be in my videos anymore!

Now that’s it’s been over a year sense she left, in her newer videos she seems so much more like herself and is making amazing content! And possibly some content that buzzfeed wouldn’t had even allowed on their channel.

I know this video is SUPER old, but I recently just discovered your channel and have been binge watching your videos. I had no idea you used to work for Buzzfeed and to be completely honest if I had known, I may never have given your videos a chance. Which is sad, and I feel I've learnt an important lesson from that alone. I really do not like Buzzfeed, but I won't go into that here. I love your videos so much and your content is great. You are very articulate and well spoken, and you make me laugh. I love that you're funny, but you do not ham it up for the camera ("They told me to go ham, so I'm going to give them a roast" - still my favorite line from you haha!) Your videos are NOT the type I'd normally watch on Youtube, so I was very pleasantly surprised. After watching this video and knowing why you left Buzzfeed, I have so much more respect for what you do. Keep doing what you're doing. You seem like a lovely, creative and intuitive person

Not giving credit to producers and directors is such bullshit. In a newspaper, even if you don't own what is being published, you sign whatever you write. That is how you get satisfaction from your work, and how you are held accountable for what you do (but not for random shit that has nothing to do with you). And it should be the same for any medium. That's just an indication of how exploitative Buzzfeed is tbh.

I’m just watching this video and I don’t love how you’re bashing Buzzfeed. Buzzfeed is an amazing, informative site/YouTube channel. I get that it didn’t work for you, but it’s kinda annoying because I feel like I hate Buzzfeed now and I wanna work there someday lol

Totally love how you don’t bash the company . It speaks highly of your character. As simply put your goals don’t align with the company. Sometimes a job is a stepping stone to get us where we want to be. Where by many or as few stones it takes depends on you. With an end game insight. I don’t comment a lot , but I was very impressed with your level of professionalism.

Brava! Finally subscribed after lurking for a couple months. I have relished your adventures with hair, makeup, Amazon dreck, and bizarre clothing. Sometimes I laugh so hard I start to cry. SN on YT is my guilty pleasure, keeping me up at night with the lights off after my family have gone to bed. This makes my daytime disguise as a late 50s mom much more difficult to maintain, what with yawning, and little tells like neon blue eyeliner and a clear plastic bustier under my frayed UMASS AMHERST sweatshirt. I didn't even go there, but when you're a mom and something comfy, warm, and alien appears in your son's gym bag, you got to roll with it, you know? Now I will need to check out your work at your earlier place of employment, too. Don't stop the magic. PEECE.
