    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!

    Wow I was always asking where was your name coming from originally because in Turkey we have that name and I was just trying to make connections with you and here in my mind just feel proud of someone like you but you never answered. I wasn't into Buzzfeed for months lately just because I wasn't seeing the faces that I was familiar with and now I came across your video and everything clicked.

    Also the fact that you don't get credited is horrible to me and hurts my film student soul.. I hope that union-like entities fix that soon. I even think it's important for regular Youtube channels to credit the people who work on them like the camera operator or the editor to be more transparent and give people credit.

  • Hannah

    That's super interesting that Buzzfeed Video does not let you guys interact with the viewers...so different from normal Youtube channels! It does feel really "professional" and not personalized in that way. More like a brand than a person...but then again most brands on social media have that personal touch nowadays so it's all around very strange.

    they didn't include you in a high conversation, didn't give you credit, didn't give you more responsibility, so If I were you, I would leave too. Good luck for your own channel

  • Kittyloverbee Enn
    Kittyloverbee Enn 10 days ago

    I always scrolled through the comments and you were a lot of people's favourite... and I always looked for you to comment back. Makes sense why now.

    I knew you guys obviously worked for buzzfeed and weren't actors but didn't know you started it (ladylike) and produced it...wow. Good job. Now focus on you and your own content!

    • Kittyloverbee Enn

    I think it is kinda sad that a company can't embrace all the talent and ambition of their employees. They could have had a goldmine on their hands with your talent and creativity. I hope the friendship you have with the ladylike crew doesn't suffer from the restrictions on colab videos. I can only respect you saf and say i'll mis you in the ladylike vids. Big hug from the Netherlands

    The only reason I watch BF content is for the Try Guys and Ladylike, and without Saf, Ladylike just isn't the same! Hopefully BF will up their game and not lose any more of the awesome staff (like Saf!) because honestly, their slipping.
