I wasn’t planning on commenting, and I also didn’t know this video was posted until today when I saw it on Twitter. But I just wanted to share a bit. Throughout high school and college I had watched JKNews and loved y’all videos. But after the Amber Liu situation, I had heard so many other things that you guys had done such as when Bart did blackface and I was extremely hurt. And so many fans gaslit people who openly showed how offended they were so they just seems like an environment that went from funny videos to toxic. So after much conflicting thoughts, I had unsubscribed. It’s good to see that you guys were genuine and apologized about these things. It was real and felt more real than many other apology videos on this platform. Means a lot, much respect, and hope everyone in the world can grow from these events. :)

Part of what you made great was that you were not part of the overly PC crowd that dominates USshow. I fear that since you chose to bow down to the cancel scums the JK entity will be just be one of many. Sad to see you go this way

To these people who are offended by JK's content: Can you read? Did you pass the third grade? The name of their company literally has "just kidding" in it haha. If you can't handle jokes or comedy, you shouldn't be here anyway. Gtfo haha.

This is honestly the best thing and in my definition the necessary steps to being an ally. In the past there were opinions and statements that I felt like placed me in a corner as a fan. Being able to apologize is the first step and it makes it even better than it wasn’t ordered or demanded.

Cancel culture is fine. It’s how easily people get canceled for no reason that’s the problem. Canceling somone who should be canceled is fine. But we can’t misuse it cuz It takes away meaning.

Guys don’t sweat the small stuff. People who take offence to what you guys say probably do DO it ... which is why they get personally offended. Your true fans know that it doesn’t come from a bad place.

You perpetuated racism, but that is no longer your goal. To be clear, you knew you were profiting off of racism, but now that it is no longer profitable you will have to find another way. Your goal should be to continue to call out people you personally know living their everyday lives based on racist ideas. Can you profit off of telling others not to perpetuate racism?

I appreciate Joe and Bart speaking out on areas where they messed up, I just hope they’re doing it for the right reason. They say they’re learning from their mistakes and are gonna be different/better moving forward, but only time will tell if that’s true or not. Tbh, the views expressed in more recent episodes are much more jarring than them using the n-word years ago. Apology videos aside, I hope Bart and Joe are reaching out to their Black friends and the Black people they’ve had on their show to get some feedback and have some tough conversations.

Ya, in the off-chance you guys actually read this, just know that I've been a loyal fan of JK News and crew for years now. As some have said in other comments, I think at times you all would say some things that would just make me scratch my head -- not even stuff like "the n word" -- just stuff that would make me question your experiences with people and that made you sound super...well, just stupid. I'm not one to get offended very easily, so I never cared that much and if anything I simply watched fewer videos; but I never unsubscribed. That said, I do hope this commitment is sincere and is not just out of fear of being cancelled, because while I've never been bothered much by the off-color comments, one thing I realize, even here in this thread, is that your fans (particularly the non-black ones) eat up everything you do and will make excuses for any type of behavior you carry out merely because they're fans and the ill-humor does not relate to them. This is how racism is perpetuated, I think. I know that Asians, though some pretend to have "no skin in the game," can still be rather upset at anti-Asian racism, and yet for some reason, will stop at no end to defend anti-black racism out of "custom" or "humor", and suggest black people are simply thin-skinned fascists for wanting to put an end to anti-black racism (and of course white people tag along to this ill-conceived notion, as if comedy dies if we can't all be racist as fuck). Basically, people (in general) are always willing to perpetuate racism that doesn't affect them. So yes, thank you for recognizing that changing your tone as someone whose voice is heard far and wide is an important step in eliminating the racist bullshit nationwide.

I know it's called just kidding news for a reason. But some jokes can't be made without considering the hundreds of years of oppression. Broke my heart too because in my opinion, the jknews episodes with DoBoy, KevOnStage and Tahir Moore are some of my favorite of all time. The friendship and chemistry with the cast was so good that the jokes are funnier. But Steve, Nikki and Bart did something wrong. Tahir and KevOnStage had to say something to these guys about that. Silence implies complacency. That's how racism continues unchecked. It hurts but I doubt any black comedians /guest will be doing jknews any time soon or ever.

I watched JK for about 6 years. They helped through some tough times and I've always appreciated that. That being said, as a black man from SC, they've said a lot of things that were disrespectful and ignorant. I've always been pretty sure that it was unintentional but I stopped watching more than a year ago. I didn't want to continue giving my attention to people who didn't want to even consider educating themselves on issues that affect so many of their potential viewers. I'm glad they're beginning to understand and learn and I look forward to seeing what comes next.

Why did you guys have to wait till BLM popped off to confront your ignorance? Commenters having been going off for years about how the comments you guys make are racist and extremely insensitive and you guys finally changed when you monetary stack was at risk? SUS! I used to love JK but after CONSTANTLY feeling uncomfortable with jokes and a lack of action, I realized this channel wasn't for me and didn't support me as black american. There is a fine line between comedy and straight up ignorance and racism. Though deep in my heart I want to think that the owners of this company are good people, the timing of all this seems disingeniuse. JK, I honestly wish the best of luck to all of you but I hope to see some real change so all the fans can know you came from the right place

Please be aware the only reason these people are “apologizing” is because it is being brought to light. Especially Bart remember him using a hard n word with an r on an episode of JKN without thought and just dismissed it as oh it’s in the article so I’m gonna use it. Hard r or not shouldn’t come out of anyone’s mouth because everyone knows the history. To me this was just a way to cover yourselves but hopefully you have grown!and will continue to do so.

I, a black viewer, have decided to unsubscribe from JK. I appreciate the apology and the growth I’ve seen from you guys during the years I’ve watched you. However, I feel like your content is no longer for me. Tahir and Kev brought something to JK I haven’t seen and it got me to love it again. Since they will no longer be here I too will not. You have grown a lot and I hope that continues. But I have realized you have not made this space comfortable/safe for people who look like me.

I actually appreciate this apology and the points being made. As a black woman I unsubscribed after being a subscriber for 13 years bc I was really fed up with the micro-aggressions and anti blackness and the egos that refused to admit that there is something inherently wrong by minimizing a group of people (who are also supporters of you) to what you perceived as their worst traits. And not acknowledging the role you play in spite of the fact that you are people of color. I hope this really does marks change and I hope you give your black staffers more of a voice and hire more black people to work for you.

I love Jk but it time for a change I advise that jk new doesn’t cover black topics and issues with out multiple black people present we understand that it is jokes but without understanding what we are living the jokes will always come off insensitive and disrespectful to what’s happening. I’ve been a fan for Years! And I do see the growth but this is the time as non black POC where your place is as an ally in the revolution is decided. I’m not saying don’t make jokes but I am saying that adding more melanated diversity to the cast is a great step. Because supporting BLM isn’t just donated and speaking those great steps but there is more to that it’s giving black people the space platform and opportunity to speak and be heard. Given rolls that we deserve.

I am going to use my freedom of speech so don't take this personal..Bart has always been apologizing for comments about children sexual actives, racism on Mexicans and African Americans. I mean Bart has a Mexican Woman but he still continues to use his I lift weight can't be touch ego on every show like he is untouchable. Bart as educated as he claims to be with his UCLA education still acts like a child. Jk Films is never going to go anywhere if he keeps apologize for there speak before they think attitude. Every human being needs to know there are not gods because they get a little you tube fame. They do have a weakness and with Bart that is the weakness on jk films. Bart has really upset alot of people that comment but never get heard. His own wife gets upset with the crap that sometimes comes out of his mouth. I mean she is his bestfriend and him not know that what he does affects her too..Bart you got the most best and wonderful things for you that alot of people pray for or have hope for and you take it as if you will never lose it..Geo has a lot of patience to be by your side..All I can say is for every comment you have said on film you haven't been reported or judged for but if it was one of us simply working 9 to 5 individuals we would be judged or lose our freedom at the court system..I mean come on the way you talked about children and you have one is a mystery to me..But what do I know right I am just a jealous troll that's funny.. The good thing about film is it last forever so Bart you will go down in history as what you made yourself to be as comedian that tried to hard and still won't get that spotlight he needs..You all keep apologizing and never learn. Now that the world is ending you are worried about face and your channel. But karma is coming and everyone will pay there dos at the end..Good Luck..You should be grateful Bart you got Joe as a mentor to always be there to clean up your mistakes cause you have alot and it's all on film thanks to James Rodolfo...

I started watching you this year. Im from Colombia (South America) every night i wait for your videos to upload so i can get ride off the stress of living in a third world country in the middle of a pandemic I have not left my house for 109 days. Our life changed from going to work every day and having an active life to being locked up with my daughter, dog and husband hoping that the pandemic does not knock on our door. You have been the only ones, well, and Stephanie Soo, who have made me laugh and have helped me with stress. In today's videos (July 2, I went back to this one specifically to write to you) I feel that you are afraid to comment or even talk. Please do not stop making videos as always, believe me that many of your comedy help us. Thanks I hope this message reaches you.

I love JKNews but something about this doesn't sit well. Everyone is now coming forward apologizing for things they did and it seems like they're doing it to save their asses from someone outting them in the future. It's better to speak up first than to have someone dig it up for them. Idk about these apology videos that are now popping up everywhere.
