Avril Cheats and YouTube Supports It?

| Filed under: Avril LavigneCanadialandIcky Icky PooTech TalkYouTube

We mentioned last month that Avril Lavigne's "hard core fans" were on a mission to make her video for the song Girlfriend the most played ever on YouTube.

Well, as of Friday morning, Team Avril toppled the now former #1 spot holder, the Evolution of Dance video, with 92,696,978 views.

BUT, Douchette Supremo's video didn't get there by legit means!

As we've previously reported - and corroborated by Wired - a website was created to automatically play the Girlfriend video every 15 seconds. Avril's fans inflated her play counts, propelling her vid to "most viewed" ever.

Avril's "Band Aids" plan to use this shady tactic til her vid gets to the 100 million views mark, the first-ever to do so on YouTube.

YouTube's policy is to remove videos from the most-played section if they discover that their view count system has been gamed.

Why haven't they done that??????

YouTube still has April's video listed in the site's "most viewed of all time" category.

Wired went on to reveal that YouTube has probably turned a blind eye to Avril's shadiness because the site's making advertising money off of the fake views.

Shady Lavigne's manager revealed the following at a business conference in London on Thursday:
"there's about a $2 million check waiting for her for all her YouTube plays."

Douchette and her managers are getting a cut of YouTube advertising sales money! Money they didn't even get by legit means!

We hope the shadily earned money is going to a charity.

    33

    Mario , you really are a fucking idiot. Why to you keep saying Avril is cheating. She has nothing to do with anything on youtube. I really don't know why you think you are better than everyone else in this world. Avril has done more this morning that you will ever do with your pathetic excuse for a life. Get a fucking Job.

  34. jake says – reply to this

    Just tell the advertisers that are paying for those youtube views that only machines saw the vid — do you think they'll want to pay her anything??

    Wasn't she sued over this song? And if she was sued and lost, wouldn't this not be her song and the video for "her" said song, not really be "hers"? Therefore, disqualifying her for any record attempt?

    Perez, just admit it, you hate canada.

    You have dogged Avril since day 1. You suggest the barenakedladies get a new singer because theirs got arrested on an amusing drug charge. You are rude about everything canadian.

    You also hate disney, near as I can figure. Did they pee in your cornflakes? Did disney ban you from their themeparks where you were a kid or something? Perhaps trauma with some guy in a mickey mouse suit?

    Whatever it is, your blatant attacks are getting funnier by the day, obvious as it comes.

    PS: we know samantha Ronson is a lesbian… you don't have to capitalize man each time, we get it already. MOVE ON.

    I watched it , she has talent and its sad that people are trying to get rid of that.. Even the claims of her not writing her songs she obviously had to put some input into them in order to have her name as a writer of it or im sure she would have been "Outed" earlyer in her career. Either way she has managed to sell 18,000,000 world wide. And her first single Complicated knocked out Madonna's single for Music off #1 of the charts, ok im kinda sounding lame pouring all this info out so I hope you atleast have the balls to give some credit where credit is due.

    I don't really know much about this girl, but don't understand why she is getting flack for what some obsessive fans did. Just like I don't understand why Miley gets flack for having a thief steal from her and flash her personal property all over the place.

    Eventually,actual talent is going to become weary of being vilified for actions not their own, and all that will be left to entertain us will be "reality" shows during a time when people are more an more hungry for entertainment. Bad times always drive people to escapism entertainment and it probably won't be there in any meaningful way.

    Perez - Thanks for letting me know about Evolution of Dance - I've been living under a rock for the past two years, apparently. It was fantastic! And, at 1:00pm CST, it had 92,692,117 hits. I checked Avril's video - it's at 92,681,114. It overtook Avril, I guess! Fight the cheating power and watch Evolution of Dance! Pure comedy from a good place in someone's heart, not motivated by money and greed!

    omg she's so retarted. like does anyone care about her anymore? she just needs to go live in a cave for the rest of her life. gosh she's so annoying.

    Dude, what's with your seathing hatred for rich, young, famous, white women? You must have been rejected by them back when you were a fat zit-faced teenager and now you exacting some twisted half-assed revenge?

  61. SD says – reply to this


    61

    More importantly, Perez, why are you so pissed off over a fucking youtube video???? It's not like she went to her fans and ASKED them to do it. I don't get your hate of her.

  62. Bob says – reply to this


    62

    She deserve it to be number one. She is great. Her career is not over. And people who say bad things have no idea about her, her music or her fans.

    of all the great music vids and random stuff on you tube its a joke that, that crap has the no1 spot

    obviously her fans would have to cheat to get it to the top spot, theres no way it would have got as nearly as much views otherwise

    just shows even her fans are desprate to make her look popular
    charity? Hmm….

  69. Jay says – reply to this


    69

    Re: Muse – yep she still has fans like me bitch! "fake, poseur, hore" proves how lazily unintelligent you are, "whore" apparently being married for 3 years makes someone a "whore" which makes your mom a whore. I'm sick of these lazy terms to describe all women just because someone doesn't like how someone a) dresses b) looks c) talks, apparently other people just ain't as perfect as the people who make comments on this brainwashing site, hilton forgot to mention that the whole "bandaids" fansite viewer was a hoax, your only allowed a certain amount of hits dedicated to a ip address, the whole idea was to generate media attention for the video (which was already at 88 million before the prank) and it worked it went from number #2 to number #1 thanks to websites like this one.
    Avril's "manager" is the much respected terry mcbride of nettwerk management who fought against record labels sueing fans over downloading.

    Hiton should've mentioned the hundreds of people waiting around the block at a kohl's department store at the grand opening of ABBEY DAWN, where Avril signed autographs as opposed to hilton's grand opening in las vegas which only drew 30 people ouch!

    Avril, a website gaming system isn't fans, isn't love, isn't creativity, isn't purpose

    Come on ya'll.. The only reason YouTube is free, is because of the advertising money.. So whatever if it ain't legit..
    No one cares about Avril anyway ….

  74. DALE says – reply to this


    74

    Your only allowed 200 views per ip address, it's impossible for a small website to generate those kinda numbers. It was a catchy as hell pop song that went #1 everywhere in the world and a great music video to go along with it, if a bland dance/pop like "don't stop the music" by rihanna can generate 62 million views, why is it such a surprise that "girlfriend" garnered 100 million? Take "when you gone" "hot" "girlfriend" you have over 138 million views which totals around 13 million dollars in advertising revenue.

    Her butt crack cock quantity quadrupled that amount. A few thousand more if you include her barnyard buddies.

    The evolution of dance video isn't counting new views anymore. It's been the same for like a whole day now. No matter how many times you refresh its the same. I'm mad now, I love that video.

    I think you need to get over this obsession you have with Avril. It's getting old.
    Find someone else to pick on. Hey what don't you just look in the mirror. That should get a few laughs.

  80. Mmmmm says – reply to this

    Why don't you post the "Evolution of Dance" video on the side of your site and encourage your readers to look at it every time they log in to your site? Kick the cheater out.

    Re: betch – It's called the youtube partnership program. Read a fucking internet article you twat! You avril fans are really insane! Supporting an artist that dosen't care about you. Go waste your time somewhere else, like at one of her concerts!

  84. Karen says – reply to this


    84

    Well first off your title is quite misleading, by saying Avril Cheats, Avril did not do any cheating at all, secondly, YouTube has stated that the false views have been removed and they are not being counted, and that they will not counted towards advertising views. Thirdly, the views that supposedly pushed Avril's video to number the number one spot buy the auto refresh page happened only in the last month or so; and those supporting the Evolution of Dance video have resorted to trying to do the same thing with browser plugins, so should the Evolution of dance video be removed too?
    Furthermore, the Evolution of Dance video has been out for a much longer period of time than Avril's Girlfriend video and her video has ascended at a much faster rate than the Evolution of Dance video in a shorter period of time anyway, and Avril's video has been about to overtake the top spot for months without the need of any supposed auto refresh methods needed anyway, it really was only a matter of time before Avril’s Girlfriend video took the top spot anyway, which is pretty amazing when you think about it because Avril’s video is not allowed to be embedded all over the internet as the Evolution of Dance video currently allowed to be. It is an inevitable fact that the Evolution of Dance video’s top spot would be over taken by Avril’s Girlfriend video in short period of time anyway. So why are you so upset over the mathematics of probability playing out here?

    But how is that any different from you manipulate your hits on this site??? I can't stand Avril Lavigne but you are guilty of the same kind of lame cheating when you do your "if you want to know which celeb did this, CLICK HERE". Please. You are just puke green with envy, as always.

    That is *SUCH* bullshit!!!!! Fuck YouTube if they don't delete the stupid video when they blatantly broke the site's own rules to get a false high viewership. And fuck them extra for paying her 2 million dollars. WTF for?? She didn't even *DO* anything? I am so fucking Goddamn pissed when rich people get handouts for *nothing whatsoever*. Fuck YouTube so fucking much!!!!

  93. Percy says – reply to this


    93

    Re: Karen
    Well said, Karen. Avril herself has no control over how many views her videos on YouTube get. Do all of Percy's Avril-hating fucktards on this page really believe all of Evolution of Dance's views have been legitimately obtained?
    "YouTube's policy is to remove videos from the most-played section if they discover that their view count system has been gamed."
    The video is still up because it hasn't been cheated in any way. The Human Without A Brain who runs this website has actually helped her get to the top spot, mentioning these stories about the situation, directing people to go and put in a view or two to the video's total.

    Avril Lavigne rocks … big deal about the video. Like really, who cares ???
    I love you Perez but Avrils cool and everyone should just leave her alone … shes either a 'sellout' or a 'cheat' , its not fair. And if its true, its not her fault, her fans did it.

    I wish her fuckin' face would just stop. She tries to act like SUCH a badass. Some one should drop her off in New Orleans 9th ward and see just how "bad" she really is. Shady bitch.

    99

    You know what is so fucking hilarious? People that go into LONG complicated explanations about why the "facts" on a GOSSIP website are not perfect. This is not hard news people. And Avril is in fact a skinny, spoiled, posing, spitting, annyoing, untalented beeaatch. So there.
