Braso is a Latvian YouTube channel that posts commentary videos largely regarding MrBeast, the Minecraft YouTube community (including YouTubers like Dream, Technoblade, BadBoyHalo and other Dream SMP members), and specific Minecraft fans. His Minecraft challenge videos, many of which are influenced by Dream's Minecraft Manhunt series, may be seen on his second channel, BrasoXD. On February 26, 2020, Braso launched his primary channel, and on July 11, 2021, he launched his secondary channel.
In a video titled "The WORST Commentary Channel..." that was released on November 17, 2021, another commentary YouTuber by the name of Jadyn accused Braso of posting clickbait videos in which he exploited Technoblade's cancer diagnosis. She claims in the video that Braso profited off the discussion of Technoblade's diagnosis by giving all of the money he made from it to charity, even earning three times as much as another YouTube commentator named Tired Cast (who has looked into analytics on his earnings). However, the impact of this criticism was limited due to Braso's channel being relatively small at the time, and the numerous controversies of Jadyn - such as allegedly mocking religion and also milking the diagnosis for views.
However, many YouTubers called out Braso yet again in July 2022 for posting numerous videos regarding Technoblade's passing, some of which received between 200,000 and 1 million views. He was also criticised for failing to include fundraisers in his videos after promising to do so. In his response, Braso stated that he gave $3,000 of ad revenue to charity. Many drew attention to the fact that he didn't provide any genuine evidence. He promised to cease uploading videos alluding to Technoblade's passing in his reaction video, and he also promised to record a future video in which he genuinely gives money to charity.
Braso later donated to the Sarcoma Foundation of America, but commentary YouTuber SixStriker found out that his donation was completely faked by using inspect element, which led to further criticism by YouTube channels such as Optimus and penguinz0/moistcr1tikal. On July 7, 2022, he removed all videos relating to Technoblade, and has since created 2 controversial responses to those criticising him - the latest being created after production of this episode.
