Austin and Britt Null uploaded an impromptu vlog entitled, “WE NEED TO TALK”, on their YouTube channel–The Nive Nulls. Austin and Brit discuss the nude images and videos that have been leaked on the internet. The videos are of family vlogger, Austin Null being inappropriate with several inanimate household objects. Austin says this issue has been a big part of the both of their lives for about one year!
Austin Null’s vlog was very reminiscent of Sam and Nia Ashley Madison cheating scandal vlog in which it followed the same formula–and can be seen as very biblical in itself:
Predictable ‘YouTube Scandal’ Formula:
- The Big Confession
- The Story & Admission
- The Important Lessons Learned
- The Redemption
- The Vlogging Hiatus
- The YouTube Rebirth!
Before the big confession, Austin makes sure to announce the vlog on Twitter to everyone so they tune in!
The Nive Null’s Big Confession
Austin and Britt sit on the floor, much like Sam and Nia to have an intimate chat with viewers. Austin disabled comments and tells viewers to “so just listen to us and hear what we have to say”.
The Story, Admission, And Austin Null’s Cheating Timeline:
- Austin says he had an “online affair” for FIVE months
- The cheating occuered in the beginning of May
- Austin says it was during the time Britt found out she was pregnant with third child, Maddox Alexander Null
Okay well-Britt found out she was pregnant with Maddox February 2015…Are we missing something here?
“It was actually nearly a year ago, someone reached out to me-sent me some pictures and stuff–a girl-and I, instead of blocking her and moving on-decided to flirt with the idea of responding and basically had an online affair for like 5 months…This went on in the beginning of May and I told Brittney, I felt terrible-I knew what I was doing was wrong. I wasn’t even looking for this-something just fell into my lap (no pun intended) and instead of ignoring it-I fell into it and it just spiraled out of control. I felt terrible, I said I have an amazing family, I have an amazing wife and I ended it with this girl-and ever since then we’ve been in counseling…”
Austin Null Publicly Shames Family Vlogger, Sam Rader For Online Cheating Just Months After His Own Scandal!
Austin Null PUBLICLY SHAMED Sam Rader on August 23rd, 2015 for cheating online on the Ashley Madison website-this occurred only several months after his own cheating and son on the way! Sadly, Austin’s online cheating that was leaked and captured ON VIDEO.Austin goes on to say,
” …this happened right before we found out Britt was pregnant [with third child, Maddox Null].
Britt says she and Austin always debated about discussing the online cheating in a vlog-though Austin was ready, Britt wanted to talk about it when she was comfortable. However-since a video was leaked and people on Twitter on messaging Austin’s Family and other family vloggers-they figured now was as good of a time as any!
Important Lessons The Nive Nulls Learned On Grace And Forgiveness
It has been a long road, not fun- Britt says it’s been a process for her and Austin. Austin says what he did was “sinful and wrong”. Austin says there are people messaging his family and friends about the video and it’s frustrating because-they already knew about it…Britt says she understands there are consequences to actions and they,
“…truly believe through the love of Jesus Christ and his receptive forgiveness we are able to move forward and forgive Austin…we want to see it as an opportunity to use Christ…”
The Nive Nulls Redemption:
Britt says they want viewers to know they are not perfect and that’s why they need Christ.
“…Maybe you feel like you watch YouTubers and you watch us because you feel like we’re on this pedestal and you;re down here and now you’re just crushed beacause you’re like oh man I thought they were perfect-I just want you know-No one is perfect and that’s why we all need Christ.”
Britt says Austin is now a completely different person. Britt says she sees the work God can do in someone’s heart when they’re willing to confess their sins and want to change. Austin says he realizes how desolate his heart was and how sinful he was. Austin says his lifestyle has changed and their are many things he is trying to do including changing the way he thinks, the way he interacts with people and the way he “thinks about sin.”
These changes are a result of this situation. Austin says everyone needs to focus the conversation from negativity to the “light and positivity.” Austin says he’s annoyed because the and his wife are in a totally different place in their marriage.
The Nive Nulls Vlogging Hiatus:
Austin and Britt reveal they are going to take a break during the upcoming New Year and hit the refresh button for 2016. Britt says they were already talking about wanting to take some time off for their family and this is perfect timing.
The Nive Nulls reveal they feel like their losing ‘the purpose’ behind their vlogs. Austin says he’s had an epiphany, that he has not cared about the vlogs as much. Austin says he’s been wanting to focus on his family, being a better husband, and being a better father.
Many are interested to see what their upcoming vlog will look like. Will the Nive Nulls go to counseling?, will the couple discuss their family issues for viewers or their reaction when this news hit? So many questions, so little answers!
Stay tuned for The Nive Nulls YouTube rebirth!
