Alex Phister started this petition to Zac & Jay (The Zac & Jay Show)

We've supported Zac & Jay for years, begged friends and family to subscribe, handed over personal information in good faith. Been lied to about the extent of a serious security breach (a 'security limitation') and that our information had been 'destroyed immediately' when they continue to text us. We should complain to the Information Commissioner's Office, but we won't.

The suspense and anticipation of this video has been years in the making, and they leant in to that hype. But we were prepared to back them. Instead we have a poor man's Led By Donkeys chasing subs. They wax lyrical about black curriculum when it gives them good PR, but then partner with Kyra TV, a company well known for exploiting young black creatives.

We get that brand deals are a necessary evil in the YouTube space, but we expect better due diligence with the companies that you associate with, especially when handling personal data. Gensight.app clearly designed the site with complete gay abandon for user data, loading the entire database for every user, on every page. The top 10 refers was calculated client-side; this wasn't accidental, it was an intentional design decision by the developers. No wonder it was slow to load on launch. Names, phone numbers or emails were never necessary to operate a refer scheme, nor was consent for promotional and marketing texts which just further confirms that this 'drop' was a thinly veiled attempt to harvest data (they could have requested you consent to receiving a text with a refer link).

This has been terrible expectation management - it feels like punishment, and we thought better from them, with such a unique relationship with their fans. This was never about a rejection of the docuseries, but the way they went about it. Too often, they feel like unoriginal capitalist grifters. But we remember the jibbing hotbed of leftfield culture-jamming creativity they once were, and we still have hope.

The fans make this channel; without us, there would be no brand deals or content. We are not a number, subscribers are not an indication of value. Focus on organic growth.

All we ask is to finally see the Royal Wedding video, as we were originally promised and let's get back to upping the effin' show. It's the least we deserve. Why wait?
