'MTV News' Deletes YouTube Video Telling "White Guys" What They Could Do Better In 2017 After Backlash

|

Update: MTV took down the video after less than 48 hours following an intense backlash from online commentators. A mirror is posted above because nothing can be deleted from the internet.

'MTV News' produced this video of proposed New Year's Resolutions for "white guys," because that group could "do a little better in 2017."

"Try to recognize that America was never 'great' for anyone who wasn't a white guy," the video urges America's white men, referring to Donald Trump's campaign slogan. "And learn what mansplaining is, then stop doing it."

It also advises them to: "Stop bragging about being 'woke.'"

"Just because you have black friends doesn’t mean you’re not racist. You can be racist with black friends," it clarifies. "And feel free to take Kanye West, though. You guys can have him." West met with Donald Trump last week.

As of this writing, the video had 89 'thumbs up' votes on Youtube and 11,922 'thumbs down' votes.

"I'm not even white, and this rustled my jimmies," one YouTuber said.

BLACK MALE #1: And there’s a few things we think you could do a little bit better in 2017.

[ON-SCREEN HEADLINE: 2017 Resolutions for White Guys]

NON-WHITE FEMALE #1: First off, try to recognize that America was never great for anyone who wasn’t a white guy.

NON-WHITE FEMALE #2: Can we all just agree that Black Lives Matter isn’t the opposite of all lives matter? Black lives just matter. There’s no need to overcomplicate it.

WHITE MALE #1: Also, Blue Lives Matter isn’t a thing.

BLACK MALE #1: Cops weren’t born with blue skin — right? I mean — yeah! They weren’t born blue.

WHITE MALE #2: Stop bragging about being woke.

NON-WHITE MALE #1: Stop saying woke.

WHITE FEMALE #1: Learn what mansplaining is and then stop doing it.

WHITE MALE #1: Oh, and if you’re a judge, then don’t prioritize the well-being of an Ivy League athlete over the woman he assaulted.

BLACK MALE #1: We all love Beyonce and yeah, she’s black, so of course she cares about black issues. I’m talking to you, Fox News.

NON-WHITE FEMALE #2: Feel free to take Kanye West, though. You guys can have him.

BLACK MALE #1: You know what you did, Kanye.

WHITE MALE #2: Nobody who has black friends says that they have black friends.

BLACK MALE #1: And just because you have black friends doesn’t mean you’re not racist. You can be racist with black friends.

NON-WHITE MALE #1: Look, guys, we know nobody’s perfect.

NON-WHITE FEMALE #1: But — honestly, you can do a little better in 2017.

WHITE FEMALE #1: Some of you guys do a great job. Some of you don’t.

BLACK MALE #1: Please cause 2016 was bad. 2017 can’t be worse than this, alright? Cause this is bad.
