What Makes Danny Edge So Special
No matter how incredible Danny is, there will always be the haters, like the antagonists in movies, to break and crush good vibes. But instead to crumbling under the hate, Danny chose to speak out with positivity and took it all like a champ. In the video ‘Coming Out’, Danny basically responds to comments that called him names and labeled him as ‘gay’. Danny, however, brings to light the seriousness of the topic, and tells his viewers that being different from the rest is something worth embracing. And that no one should find names and labels like that as an offense. Pretty inspiring, Mr. Edge!
Danny was once in the midst of a controversy where his video ‘A subscriber ripped out my piercing’ caused havoc among his audience. He later posted an ‘Instagram’ photo admitting that in fact no one is responsible for the ripped out eyebrow piercing, but it was rather his fault. Here he also addressed the issue of going MIA from social media, which actually caused quite a stir among the fans. Danny confessed that he was going through some down-lows in life and that he promises to never leave social media again.
