Information points to a YouTuber deliberately misleading his viewers in order to cast himself as a survivor of Chinese oppression. Potentially making it easier for him to sell his fake story and land book & movie deals in the future.
VOA repeated Matt’s old tale about “narrowly escaping” China in 2018, legally, through exit customs, even though the PSB, Military & Traffic Police were hunting him, (apparently not knowing where he lived). In 2019 he casually returned to sell his house, destroying his own story. pic.twitter.com/a6EWZeHIaU— Daniel Dumbrill (@DanielDumbrill) July 30, 2021
It’s not the first time a YouTuber is exposed for playing up a story in order to build up a narrative for his viewers.
