This week I spoke with Steven Ho (@steveioe), a first generation Vietnamese-American who started sharing comedic yet brutally honest ER skits online, eventually becoming known as “that ER guy” and launching his own brand tied to that sentiment – MuFKR. Now, with over 13 million followers across TikTok, YouTube and Instagram, Steven creates funny, real, and informative (with a hint of profanity) content related to the ER, providing transparency and comedic relief around a place people often dread. Everything he shares with his audience is through the lens of honest ER experiences, letting them in on the joke no matter how ridiculous, traumatic, or silly.
