Desmond Amofah, more commonly known as Etika, is a YouTuber known for creating live streams, reaction videos, let's plays, and other video game-related content. His reaction videos have since become a minor meme on the SiIvaGunner channel. His YouTube channel, followed by his social media accounts, were removed on October 26th, 2018 and then owns a new channel, now named EtikaFRFX.

Background Edit

On July 16th, 2012, Etika created a YouTube channel under the username "EWNetwork", short for "Etika World Network". He originally posted videos of him discussing video game-related news stories.

Etika gained notoriety in 2014 and 2015 after he posted several videos to his YouTube channel where he would react to announcement videos by Nintendo regarding the games Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

The most viewed video on Etika's channel was a video that was uploaded on October 23rd, 2014 titled "MEWTWO DLC REVEAL!!! Etika's First Time Reaction to it!!! "MY D**K" TURN DOWN VOLUME", which shows Etika's reaction to Nintendo announcing that Mewtwo will be a downloadable DLC character in the next installment of Super Smash Bros. Surprisingly, this video was shared on Twitter by Masahiro Sakurai, the creator of the Super Smash Bros. series.

Since October 24th, 2018, Etika has removed all of his YouTube videos, leaving his channel with only this video (reupload). This event could be the cause of an ongoing ARG, as seen from Reddit. With this event, his Twitter account was blocked for a few hours before uploading this video and, later on, removed his Facebook account.

On October 26th, 2018, Etika had his YouTube channel taken down[1] by uploading videos that violated YouTube's community guidelines regarding sexual content. According to close friends, he was apparently trying to commit suicide before his family stepped in.[2]. Later, on the same day, his ex-girlfriend, Christine, reported on Twitter[3] that he was placed in a Mental Hospital for recovering his issue, which later uploaded a video on YouTube confirming her answer after having an argument with Fiona on Twitter[4].[citation needed]

After this event, Etika has his Twitter account back, after being blocked, and decided to announce his new channel a few days later. Now his new channel name is called EtikaFRFX, with the last letters being an acronym of "For Real Facts (FaXs)".

Some of Etika's reaction videos have been used in rips on the SiIvaGunner channel. The first rip to do this was "Battle! (Mewtwo) - Pokémon X & Y" by PinkieOats, which used footage from Etika's Mewtwo reaction video. Etika was also one of the fighter characters in the King for a Day Tournament, where he had three promo rips: "We Dem Boyz", "Go Hard (Brooklyn)", and "ətˈæk 0N tάɪtn".
