Here’s Why People Hate Scotty Kilmer, According to Himself

His career may not have started with his YouTube channel, but that is where a lot of people know the popular automotive enthusiast Scotty Kilmer from. Many people admire Scotty for his expansive knowledge and genuine passion, but just like everywhere else on the internet, he does receive his fair share of hate. In fact, he even responded to his ‘haters’ in a rather reflective YouTube video, and you have to at least respect him for it. Whether you like Scotty Kilmer or not, these are the valid reasons not to like him, according to himself.

Who is Scotty Kilmer

Let’s dive into the background of Scotty Kilmer before we start. Scotty is a mechanic, writer, and he’s well known from his YouTube channel. He has a net worth of around $10 million dollars, and you can bet he spends a bit of that on his personal collection of vehicles. Some people could argue that he’s overly opinionated, and his blunt personality isn’t one for sugarcoating what he wants to say.

Why do people hate him?

Hate might not be the right word, but it isn’t really clear why so many people want to put Scotty down. His fans describe him as genuine and having a great sense of humor, but that doesn’t stop the negative comments he receives. In true Scotty Kilmer fashion he decided to make a video responding to some of these comments and addressing the hate, and it turned out exactly how you’d expect it too.

“It doesn’t bother me anymore. I’m just out to help out as many people as possible, and I’m having a good time doing it.”
