React Media, LLC, formerly known as Fine Brothers Entertainment, is an American media production company founded by producer/director duo the Fine Brothers, Benny and Rafi Fine.note  They produce sketches, sitcoms, and reality-themed shows with a considerable Production Posse for YouTube. Their productions include:

  • The React media franchise, the namesake series which began as Kids React and then expanded to include several other shows and separate channels
  • MyMusic
  • Last Moments of Relationships
  • Emo Dad
  • Spoilersnote 
  • Fine Time, which is actually regular announcements and news regarding their channel and works, as well as introducing one of their staffers per episode
  • Inappropriate Parents
  • FBE Podcast
  • Reverse Ratings and What Would My Kid Do?, both on Facebook (later made available on YouTube)
  • F the Prom

They also branched into television production, by adapting the React concept into a show called React to That on Nickelodeon, which debuted on December 15, 2014, and produced Six Degrees of Everything for TruTV, which the Fines hosted.

In June 2020, the Fine Brothers stepped down from their positions in the company after former cast and crew members, including long-time React cast member Kennedy Zimet, made allegations of casual racism from the Fines and other staff, along with the resurfacing of a 2009 Shane Dawson video in which Benny Fine appeared in blackface. Several members of the company also left in solidarity after the allegations were made.

In 2021, React Media was acquired by Electric Monster Media. Benny and Rafi Fine are no longer affiliated with the company.
