    Sad news for the black community but I’m sure alot of people in the yt community is rejoicing. There isn’t enough Paul Moonies in the industry. Too many boot lickers now a days

      Not only yt. He went in on many Black celebrities also. I still remember when he called Beyonce a galloping wild horse, lol

    Ok his death is very heartbreaking for me. He’s one of the few in Hollyweird who spoke freely throughout his entire career without any concerns of being canceled. I’ve always admired him for giving zero f*cks. And Paul could read honey. He was doing this way before the Wendy’s & Cardi B’s.

    R.I.P Paul Mooney.
