I really like all of you for supporting me & serving to promote my initiatives. As a result of with out you guys, karate man wouldn’t have been something haha. I’m gonna simply concentrate on the nice that got here of him for my social media & my private channels. He’s gone now & Could he dwell on in GOOD movies edited by the one that created him. Not stolen by a grasping firm attempting to capitalize on another person’s onerous work & creativity. Sorry if this comes off so destructive.
