#FridayFeminist: Andrew Bachelor, aka King Bach
“My process is kind of simple, I just apply what happens in real life, and I figure out a way to tell that story in six seconds.” – King Bach to Time magazine
Where have we seen this face? Just about everywhere.
Born in Toronto as Andrew Bachelor, King Bach has quickly became one of the most influential people on the internet, after establishing his own production company in Los Angeles, Bach Enterprises right after graduating from Florida State University with a degree in Business Management.
King Bach has been named a “top influencer” by Forbes and Time magazine, mostly due to his popularity on the now defunct social media platform Vine, where in 2015 he received the Streamy Award for Viner of the Year for amassing over 15 million subscribers, and over 6 billion views of his 6 second looped videos, setting a Guinness World Record.

At Bach Enterprises, he produced, directed, and performed in a number of projects, including a short film in 2012 called Agent Steele.
These roles led to other projects, such as The Mindy Project, Black Jesus, Fifty Shades of Black, and many others.
An actor, a comedian, even a star athlete at FSU, King Bach is also a humanitarian who founded the RuJohn Foundation in 2003, long before his internet fame.
The RuJohn Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides resources required to educate kids in rural and inter-city schools throughout Jamaica, and in the United States.
RuJohn organizes youth-focused literary workshops, sports camps, acting workshops, as well as business courses for aspiring entrepreneurs. King Bach takes advantage of his professional contacts to inspire and talk to the youth who participate.
Still a Toronto-lover, and a Canadian at heart, King Back found himself trending on Twitter for the wrong reasons back in May, but he doesn’t seem bothered.

Twitter: Fuck King Bach
Currently, you can find him promoting a new project, Medicine, where he includes a track, Canadians Are Nice. As Canadians ourselves, we know that’s true!
Happy birthday to our #FridayFeminist, and nice Canadian, @KingBach.
