TORONTO -- Jim Watkins, the owner of embattled forum website 8chan, took to YouTube on Thursday to issue a call-to-action for his site users to remain united and rant about modern American society, as he attempts to bring 8chan back online under a different name.

"I'm Jim," Watkins says in a high pitched sing-song voice in the video introduction. He then appears to mock popular YouTube creators by requesting that his viewers "like" and "follow" him before launching into a prepared speech he reads from several sheets of paper.

"I want you all to know something," Watkins says. "You need to hang together, because surely, you will hang separately."
