Casual Shinji:
Well, his name is 'Jared' after all.

And why is that a point of contention?

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

It's a joke reference to Jared from Subway.

I'd think Fogle would be the first Jared one goes to when thinking "creep"

Casual Shinji:

Oh, ok. Had to look that up. I'd never heard of that Fogle dude before and Subway is pretty small time around these parts, so news about it tends to not make headlines. But yeh, pretty creepy dude.

Sonmi:

Apparently not. See above.

So just got info he is also soliciting nudes from minors. What is with youtubers and just being grimy with young fans as some sort bonus to their headassery.

As someone who was a huge fan of his more polished youtube stuff (Wasn't so much into his streams), and found them a source of joy when I was down...This suuuuuuuuucks.

Cheating on his wife is bad enough. But gaslighting her over it? Yeah, ok, no, that's gotten you into the red. That's super not ok.

Then soliciting nudes from fans? Hell no, deep in the red, it's over. It's plain gross.

And then for some of those fans to be minors? And one made it clear they were under 18 at the time? That's when this goes off the charts and makes me scream in anger. There is just no recovering from that.

I sincerely hope those old deleted blogs still exist on the Wayback Machine / Internet Archives, so that the full truth can come out, and if this did in fact happen, that the FBI or whoever investigates this come get him.

At this point, I half expect to hear that he's been found dead. Because it's really that bad.

And like I said, I was a huge fan of him. His Kid Klown in Crazy Chase video was one of my go-to favourites. His D&Dcember stuff helped me get better at running games for a friend. He seemed like tons of good old wholesome fun. So this feels like a betrayal and REALLY hurts.

So, to steal his rating scale...That's why my final rating for this debacle is a broken pedestal / 10.

Because how else do I put it?

After EC and Projared having seriously turned out to have monstrous skeletons in their closet despite being source of joy and wholesomeness, I'm kinda scared that TierZoo will turn out to be running an illegal dogfighting ring in his garage, and that Overly Sarcastic Productions is running an organ theft ring or some shit.

Probably because youtubers don't have the same level of media exposure as more traditional celebrities that would prompt them carefully consider what their actions might do to their public image. Also, they don't have like agents and shit that could cover up stuff like this.

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.

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

It's his ex wife leaking those images right?

No, it was Jared's fans. Dreiko, at least double-check before throwing accusations like that.

Dreiko:
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.

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".

Good ol' Dreiko there plays a lot of them there "animu garmez", the "sick" from those games might be rubbing off on them.

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

his youtube has about 200k now, and this twitter about the same

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.

He had lots of popular contacts with which he participated and made crossovers. Since Screwattack and Normal Boots to Angry Joe and Jim Sterling.

Just briefly scanning through Somecallmejohnny videos, he sounds bored on them (and sometimes even boring)

I was asking a question as indicated by the ? at the end of the last word there. That means I was unsure of that fact. Not sure how that counts as an accusation. Anyhow, my basis for the question was seeing a tweet about his wife referencing nudes that his mistress had sent him in which she appeared ashamed according to his ex wife. Not quite the logical leap you're making it sound like.

Dreiko:

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.

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.

Sure, that much I agree with. The tendency I'm deflecting here is one where people don't differentiate between something being creepy and something being a mental illness that's actually unnatural.

I have this metaphor I like about such cases. Imagine you're at a wedding and they bring out the wedding cake. The cake is done and is edible and delicious. It's still incredibly socially unacceptable to walk up to the dais and stick your finger in it and have a taste, despite it being ready to eat. Society deems it rude. You have to wait until the wedding is done and the cake is cut up and you are given your piece, then you're allowed to eat it.

There is literally nothing wrong with finding the uncut cake appetizing. It's not the same as eating the raw dough. Society just arbitrarily decided it's rude to not wait until it tells you it's right to eat the cake. People too often like to behave as though it's unnatural to ever find the cake appetizing in any stage before it's cut though, and that's completely irrational to me. People confuse self control and constraint for "normalcy" too much. Just because it'd be incredibly rude to ruin a wedding cake before the couple has exchanged their vows, that does not mean that the desire to do just that is in any way wrong or abnormal, it's just something you obviously do not do cause you're socialized right and if someone does do it they will justly become a pariah. Not someone who has sick urges but someone with simply too low degrees of self-control.

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

That's his second channel. His main channel still has 910K

He's the most down to earth guy and because of that I relate to him a lot. Like given his past stories this guy could have been my friend in a school once.

Also which episode where you watching?

As I said, I just skimmed through some of his videos: vs. Hey, you Pikachu!, vs. Dark Souls and his MegaMan X stream. Watched some of his reactions, his comments and his jokes.

I just watched vs. Sonic Adventure 2 fully to have a more direct comparison. He spends the first 13 minutes reciting the game's story. 5 minutes in, and I'm falling asleep (partially because of sleep deprivation, but that's besides the point). Then it gets into the gameplay and it's like I'm watching a school presentation about the game's instruction manual. 30 minutes in and we arrive to presentation (no, not school presentation; I mean graphics, animation, voice acting, music, etc) and, well, I hear his words of appreciation and criticism, but he still sounds like he is reading from a grocery list. Yes, he has jokes to make it more funny, but for the most part his tone sounds detached.

Well he's not necessarily playing a character like Nostalgia Critic, AVGN, and Jontron.

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

Then that's a photo of some other part of his body entirely.

altnameJag:

I'm led to understand that it works on men.

*EDIT* but yeah, I would be much more sympathetic towards this behaviour if woman were anything but repulsed by it.

That has little to do with it. Just the the structure and the pacing of the review alone makes it more tedious than it should.

PS: No matter how authentic he may seem, he won't be the same in person. In vs. Mega Man X he shows he has already developed a brand image (and that aside, it's a better video than his vs. Sonic Adventure 2 because of pacing and structure).

Yeah his Sonic Adventure 2 review was his far older content. And he was very ameture back then. I personally think he started getting better by his review of Super Mario 64.

In my case he's fun to listen to as background.

I thought we had a thread on it here too.

evilthecat:

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

Right, I forgot about that. People are still giving him $500 a month to do nothing, though.

Samtemdo8:

I thought it was mostly the manager? From what I remember following that, Doug was mostly guilty of just hanging back and staying out of it.

altnameJag:
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?

Only if I was asked first. It's also a good test of the others character IMO.

altnameJag:

From what I understand, it's just a numbers game. It's possible to send a pic to, say, 25 people per minute pretty easily if you're just spamming it. If the pics work on even just 0.067% of women, that's less than an hour of "work" to get someone interested.

I just looked at the guy since I never heard of him, and he kinda looks like spoony. Which is a bad thing.

Why do this stuff when theres infinite tits from 18+ consenting pornstars to see free on the internet?

Spoony looks way more manly then this dweeb.

Whats so special about this guys channel? He just seems like another youtube game reviewer.

Nothing per say, but it's sort of a community thing... Blistered Thumbs, Normal Boots, etc. They had a lot of good will when video game reviews was just getting started online and was more personal. They had a connection to their community and fans, and even after youtube changed and a lot of the personal sites went bust, the contributors still had a decent following. ProJared going under was jarring because he was to a lot of people who only knew him for his content, a fairly laid back and decent guy. It was the same gut punch that JewWario fans had recently.
