reviewer: makes an apology video for making a comment that insinuated something about a product that wasn't true
reviewer: says they'll be taking down the video and donating any money made from it to a charity of the company's choosing
commenters: OMG SO HONORABLE, SO MUCH INTEGRITY, SUCH A GREAT PERSON FOR MAKING THIS VIDEO AND DOING THIS
uh???? does literally nobody else think "yep, definitely a settlement that was made to avoid this guy getting his ass sued to death"
like it couldn't be made any more obvious and i don't see how it's anything else
"transparency" and "intellectual honesty" more like "i dont want to lose assloads of money by getting sued by this company after they cease and desisted my fucking ass"
