A. Reading this thread was sufficient warning for me to not even open the video (so no, he didn't get my click).

B. Having watched many of his past videos I'm honestly not surprised in the slightest. As others mentioned upthread, he has a long track record. It continues to baffle and upset me that he's promoted, invited, and utilized by frum entities.
That's what it boils down to IMHO.

If he wants to do his thing, well it's a free country. But I'd expect people under the frum umbrella to completely tune him out already. I hope this was the last straw.

Hoping he finds his path (& mate) in life ASAP.
A. Same here
B. Couldn't have said it better

The @Shkop I had in mind, was having a filter blocking You Tube  :)

(M key's videos made their way out of YT too, hopefully it will no longer)

By the way, as far as the question raised up-thread whether or not the video actually violates halacha, it should be noted that he bought the homeless homosexual "couple" a hotel room for the night "so you guys could spend some time together".
That's the part that I don't get. Getting a dinner nu nu it can still be considered an aveirah lishma. But a hotel room? That's crossing a red line in my opinion.

Not sure why everyone going so crazy about his video?
First time he did something  of this sort?
And if you dont consider his other videos inappropriate than not sure if this one is neither 😜
Keep calm and move on

I unfollowed him a few months ago. Glad I did. Since then YT has been completely blocked anyways by filter, but I saw where his channel was heading.
I'm not who you think I am.

You don't understand human nature?  I watched 30 seconds to see what I missed and closed it.

I most definitely understand human nature, and sometimes succumb to it too. However, unless someone knows absolutely nothing about Meir K and his videos, which clearly indicate my second unfortunate point, I would think that most wouldn't be tempted to watch even one second of the video. For crying out loud, to @aygart's point, the mere fact that it's somehow connected to "Valentine's day" is enough to say that neither this nor any of his other videos should be given any airtime.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

My YT video consumption consists of the DDF video thread.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Not Meir Key (thanks for clarifying I suppose) -
Can you explain what your exact point is with that video?
A democracy is a form of government, not an intrinsic truth

This makes no sense. This is exactly the problem, and this is today's yetzer hara. The yetzer hara finally figured out how to get people to sin openly and blatantly because it's all "in the name of love". It's black on white assur min hatorah, there is no machlokes about it and the Torah is forever. It didn't change and it wont change.

Why is there even a debate. It's wrong, he knows it and he should stop trying to defend himself. He should take a good deep look inside and ask himself whose side he wants to be on at the end of the day?
