Welp ProJared's career on the internet is now forever destroyed.

 Pages 1 2 3 4 NEXT
 

Long Story short. Gaming Youtuber ProJared revealed that he cheated on his wife Heidi with another Woman, the wife of Ross from Game Grumps, Holly. But this spiraled out of a control and revealed some sick fucking things about Jared up to and including grooming teenage kids and collecting nudes. Of which he send pics of himself. Now all his 1,000,000 subscribers are unsubbing in protest.

Honestly this is Spoony and Mundanematt levels of career ruination. And I would like to show off some links, but the thing is a lot of the sources show off a lot of NSFW images of ProJared himself despite that they are censored but still. I am not making this up check it out for yourself.

As to what I think....I now dread if dirt like this is revealed about my favorite gaming youtubers like Somecallmejohnny.

Is there an article? Where did this information come out?

EDIT: Wow twitter. Holy shit.

CritialGaming:

His own Twitter post announced it. Then his cheated on wife revealed more dirt about this whole situtation

And there is already a ton of videos talking about this.

Eh, I don't see why this would have to destroy someone's career, hardly the first person to cheat on someone. Just gotta give it some time until the hyenas find someone new to play with.

Though I will say, I did not need to see Projared dressed up as Sailor Mercury posing suggestively. If I hadn't gone to an anime convention a few weeks ago it'd have seemed too bizarre lol.

As for the "grooming" thing, this was a 16 year old from what I read which is the age of consent in a lot of locations. It's not like he was into prepubescent children or something but people are behaving like he was.

Anyways, people who faced worst controversies are still up and running. I don't see his career ending anytime soon.

As others have said, when this all blows over it'll be business as usual. Nothing "destroyed" (other than perhaps a marriage or two).

Kephrii was embroiled in a similar controversy not so long ago, - also involving adultery and sending nudes to 'groupies', - and yet he's still a popular streamer on Twitch.

Fuck him. It wasn't JUST that he cheated on her, it's that he gaslit her, emotionally and psychologically abused/manipulated her, and now is trying to get out of admitting he did exactly that.

Damn, that looks like some shit.

Just because it was "legal" or the age of consent does not make it right. Not to mention, he cheated on his wife for some fucking teenagers. Fuck him. He has no one, but himself to blame. I was not exactly a big fan of him, but now I can;t even go near his videos. If anyone still wants to watch his content, feel free. You won't see looking at it now.

another asshole exploiting their position and trust to satisfy veiled desires. seems like there's a ticking clock with a lot of people these days with all the bad shit they kick under the rug, getting invested in any particular popular human as if they're your bestie feels a lot like an unwise idea, especially if male. odds are far greater then

never observed their stuff, I only know the name now because all the times their name came up, it usually was accompanied with a thumbnail or picture that made me think of an alternate Beaker from the Muppets if he were under the influence of stoned

that's the only reference I got

farewell, I hardly knew ye

At least you didn't see his dick pic. I did. I regret everything.

What is it with people exposing themselves in the internet?

At least with a Sex Tape you hide it under the bed. You are just BEGGING for the internet to hack that shit.

You know, that does qualify as revenge porn right? It's his ex wife leaking those images right? I didn't hear about legit dick-pics, just really embarrassing ones like the one I referenced. I definitely know that people were describing Zoey Quinn's nude modeling being posted by people not her ex as something to that effect.

It's definitely not his wife. As far as I can make out he sent dick pics to a variety of people who he said were allowed to forward them to other people because he's an exhibitionist. I think there was also some kind of not publicised but public porn Tumblr as well.

All I want to know is exactly how many subscribers he had before the tweet, and now many he has now.

I think he was a bit over 1 million before things started. News broke and he lost more than 80k.

So he has, at the least, 910k-ish? Not exactly the mass exodus that was suggested.

This saddens me I was big fan of ProJared and this situation is all kinds of fucked up. Though as for a career ender probably but I will perturbed cause many have done worse. I mean ChannelAwesome is till running,JonTron is still making videos and Pewdiepie can suck a childs innards live and Logan Paul is still making money. So I will give the side eye if cheating on your marriage which is bad no doubt is something that going to kill a career.

Spoony didn't even do anything that bad. Mainly just tasteless jokes and a meltdown before he gave up on life.

I'll also give Spoony some credit for being semi-public about the fact he was bipolar.

Looking back, I think it says a lot about the whole style of online geek media at the time that we were watching someone clearly in manic phase and couldn't distinguish it from the dozens of other shouty, over-the-top personas people adopted online.

He did effectively con people out of money though, which sucks.

I have peered into the vast, gaping void from which there is no escape.

Apparently the woman he was cheating with is an ex of one of the guys from gamegrumps who turned on Jontron. It's kinda hilarious when you think about it.

If it were just the cheating, I wouldn't care. Personal business, etc, etc.

The gaslighting, backhanded handling, and dick pics/solicitation is garbage.

Seriously, has a dick pics ever worked? In the entire history of humanity, has a dick pic ever worked?

Not really cause with the info and time table it sounds like this affair may of been going a while. Also I don't fault anyone for "turning" on a guy who when put to task went on about "if browns integrate they still mix with the gene pool".

Also I remember GameGrumps being pretty silent about it unless there was extra stuff I did not pay that much attention to Gamegrumps part of that whole affair.

The answer is yes. It probably has a 1 out of 100 of chance of working so its just better not to do it.

Is this about ethics in gaming journalism too?

I couldn't care less about him putting his dick on the internet. There's a lot of dicks on the internet. I've seen a LOT of dick on the internet. You'd practically have to put one on my forehead before I was phased by a dick.

Cheating is a bit more controversial. It's certainly wrong, scummy, and pretty bad. I wouldn't say that would have ruined his career alone.

Apparently there are allegations of him soliciting nude photos from someone that was underage or a tumblr blog all about trading nudes with ProJared himself. A Tumblr blog for nudes between consenting adults is fine, regardless of personal opinions on it. But the allegation is that Jared abused his authority in some way to get the photos from an teenaged boy. I don't know...did he? Something about "putting pressure" by just BEING a popular youtuber meant he was pressuring someone who was underaged. I couldn't find anything about messages between the 16 year old and Jared other than that Jared did send explicit photos, but it doesn't really say for sure if he knew the receiver was underage. Apparently the boy send nudes in return, but says he felt "sexually manipulated".

So I don't know. I don't see him recovering anytime soon, if he does at all.

Well, his name is 'Jared' after all.

Creepy. As. Hell.

There's nothing nice that can be said about adults (well, 20+, and worse the older they are) chasing after the barely legal. In fact, just about the kindest thing that can be said is "at least it's legal".

How did this man earn 1,000,000 Youtube subs in the first place I have no idea. Right place at the right time?

Somecallmejohnny as a far more nicer guy and has way more quality videos, and he only has 300,000. And he started back in 2008.

And why is that a point of contention?

Age of consent in most countries where it is lower then the age you are considered an adult (mostly 18) is usually only applied to other people who are not adult. Which basically means that a 16 year old and a 17 year old can bone it out all they want, but if a 20 year old was to have sex with the 16 year old, they are performing statutory rape. This is to protect children, albeit old children, from the predatory nature of sleazy adult assholes.

Even if sending sexual content to a 16 year old isn't explicitly illegal in Jared's jurisdiction (in some countries it'd be a grooming or a statutory sexual offense, as there are many ways an adult can coerce a child into 'accepting' sexually explicit material), it is still in extremely poor judgement and sleazy as hell. It is damning with faint praise if the best that can be said is that it isn't really illegal, just a sign of really poor character and judgement.

Is this a reference to Jared Leto being a massive creepy asshole while working on Suicide Squad?
