Joey Salads is a YouTube star known for his socials experiments and pranks. He worked as a pizza boy before becoming heavily involved in social media. The phrase "It's bashin' time" is what he became known for originally. The phrase was initially "It's smashing time." The first thing he ever bashed was his sister's iPhone4s. He was born in Staten Island, New York. His younger cousin Vinny often appears on his Instagram. He has collaborated multiple times on videos with Boris Laursen and Jack Vale.
Controversy arose when uninformed leftists criticized Salads when they confused his social experiment video from March of 2017 and believed he filmed it at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.
