Buzzfeed Fired One Of Their Most Talented Personalities

Buzzfeed Fired One Of Their Most Talented Personalities

Watch the ten most popular videos by Brittany Ashley.

I'm a huge fan of Buzzfeed, particularly their quizzes and videos. You may be thinking, "Yeah, I saw a Buzzfeed video that I liked a few times." But you may not understand the severity of what I'm saying here. If I could wear a Buzzfeed hoodie, I would. At all times. If Buzzfeed called and offered me a job, I would drop out of college and move to L.A. One of my coworkers changed my job description to "Buzzfeed Quiz Taker" on my work website for a few days as a joke.

It's a serious love.

So essentially nothing was more dismaying to me to learn that Buzzfeed had fired one of my favorite personalities, Brittany Ashley, for violating the non-compete clause in her contract. Politico reports that Ashley and fellow Buzzfeed Motion Pictures worker Jenny Lorenzo were fired for appearing in a web series produced by America Ferrera.

Ashley has not openly criticized Buzzfeed, and tweeted that fans should continue to support her friends on the BFMP staff, but did also send this not-so-cryptic tweet:

As a fan of the self-proclaimed lesbian sweetheart for America, I've compiled a list of the Top 10 Buzzfeed video projects starring Brittany, based on views. Just so you know, I looked at over 60 videos featuring Brittany, and every video in the top ten has over 4.5 million views.

Adding up the views of all of these videos, there are over 72 million views. Is Buzzfeed losing something more than just a face?

A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2007

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.
