Danielle Cohn, who misses Dani, is 15 years old. Her influential boyfriend and colleague, Mikey Tua, is 16 years old. After dropping enigmatic allusions throughout the weekend, Mikey posted a hidden camera. video the couple telling their families that Dani was pregnant.
They raised their eyebrows when both posted a video of their "wedding" in Las Vegas – that Dani's mother stated in a statement to BuzzFeed as both make a "promise" since Dani is too young to be legally married, even with the consent of his parents. In the third installment, they went to the doctor interviewed for an "ultrasound" to determine the hypothetical baby's sex and to listen to Mikey's father about their responsibilities.
But as revealed in their last and last part of the series, it was a predictable farce and inconsiderate.
The two teenagers recorded themselves gathering their friends and family for a party revealing the genre. After releasing pink streamers and blowing up a balloon filled with pink confetti, Dani and Mikey interrupted the celebration to read a note that had fallen from the balloon.
"You have been jokes!" they read from the note.
"I'm not pregnant, okay?" Dani told the participants at the party.
It's bad, but it's getting worse. In another part of the video, Dani and Mikey tell their viewers that they "did not want to offend anyone".
"If you have offended yourself or misinterpreted the situation," begins Dani, preparing for a classic YouTuber excuse. "It's certainly not what we were trying to do … We just wanted to make a funny video … We always saw pranks on YouTube, we thought it would be fun to make you pranks. "
She explained that they did not think it would go that far, "which seems to be naive, considering that she has 3.5 million Instagram followers and that Mikey has 608,000.
Mikey tried to advertise a public service announcement, taking direct control of Logan Paul's playbook after YouTuber was confronted backfire to film a suicide victim for the content. Just like the way Logan dropped at the last minute of PSA in an effort to "raise awareness about suicide and suicide prevention," Mikey said that "teenage pregnancy is extremely serious" and told followers: "It's something that should not be taken lightly".
If you're pregnant for fear of a teen pregnancy, he and Dani have suggested talking to parents – Planned Parenthood recommended "an adult you trust" – and then explored various methods of birth control without using the words "birth control".
"You can avoid doing this kind of thing without protection," says Dani, vaguely referring to sexually transmitted infections. She also refers to fertility monitoring and "rhythmic" applications, whose OB-GYNs are extremely cautious, because there is so much room for mistakes.
Although it is admirable that Dani and Mikey remind their young followers that they protect themselves when they engage in sexual activity, even if their audience is that they do not need to be an adult to buy condoms in convenience stores, the two teenagers declare themselves uneducated. They are not able to educate others about sexual health.
"It's not a joke," says Dani in what appears to be a third-last-minute segment. "I'm sorry if that offended you … I hope you still love us as much as before."
She also dropped that part of the profits from the video would be donated to Planned Parenthood.
Dani's followers have not been used by the "joke" and have expressed their disgust in his comments.
"You were PrAnkEd guys"
Girl, the reality of how you messed up is really going to hit hard, God forbid, you are fighting infertility someday. 😔

I would do anything to be pregnant because there would be many women with serious problems. That's all about infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth – so many awful situations and you're kidding! You should be ashamed, as are the adults around you. Grow 😤

I do not know why would you joke like this: it is not yet a funny girl, some people can not have children fucking I had 2 miscarriages and I have a pcos. plan but it was really fucked up

It's so rude and disrespectful to those who can not have children. The pranks are fun and good, but not with serious situations like this one. Pregnancy is not a joke.

Like many disappointed observers, simulating a pregnancy or miscarriage is deeply reckless struggling with fertility. And joking about teenage pregnancy, especially when your audience is younger, is totally wrong.
But this criticism seems to have eluded Dani and Mikey's head, because she concluded that the false sexual revelation revealed a classic content sponsored by an energy drink company.
