Jeremy Lin, Be My Date? – Plagiarism [VIDEO]
I wrote a story about New York Knicks’ point guard Jeremy Lin. My content was blatantly ripped off by a YouTuber named “cakalusa.” You’ve got to see this to believe it.
I have been ripped off! I posted a story about a sorority girl making a video about Jeremy Lin on February 16th. I finished editing the story at 9:22am ET on February 17th. Later that day, a YouTuber named “cakalusa” made a video which blatantly ripped off my story. His story was actually picked up by Taiwanese news. You can see his video on the Taiwanese news (which is really my original work) here.
My plagiarized story has ended up in Taiwan! Crazy! I’m really not mad about it, but at the same time, you’ve just got to be original. You can’t be lazy and simply steal somebody’s work word-for-word. This “cakalusa” guy is a prime candidate for 15 Seconds of Shame on “The Noe Show.” I wonder if that will end up on the Taiwanese news too.
