Tom Holland is a huge fan of the internet.
The actor, writer and producer is a big proponent of it, and he’s been toying with the idea of taking it offline for some time now.
He was the first person in the world to use the word “dumbing down” to describe YouTube, and his first attempt to do so was with a video of a black man beating a white man with a baseball bat.
He went back to the original video and rewatched it, but was met with a very different reaction.
In that video, the man in the mask is wearing a hoodie and a pair of pants that look like they’re from the 1990s.
The video is about two years old now, but Holland was convinced that the mask was not black and white, but that it was actually a black and purple color scheme.
Holland then realized he was going to have to go back to YouTube to do the same thing again.
The original video was taken down from YouTube in November, but it didn’t take long for the internet to figure out what was going on and take a shot at him.
“We knew it was going down, but we didn’t know we’d actually seen the last version of the video,” Holland told The Verge.
That was around the time that Twitter was launched, and the internet took a very active role in pushing for it to become more open.
“There was a huge outcry and a lot of people said, ‘OK, it’s going to be easier for the US to get on YouTube,'” he said.
He added: “I think the internet as a whole really did take a lot out of what the internet had to offer in terms of its diversity. “
But I think when it was put out in a very public way, and it was kind of a very visible and visible act of defiance, there was a backlash.”

I don’t think we would have had YouTube at that point if the internet hadn’t taken it so seriously.”
