i am so in the dark with the whole jontron thing? I don't even know who jontron is. What going on?
basically he’s a lets player/gamer/whatever who got really popular on this youtube show called game grumps. and he was pretty cool for a long time and he made some mistakes but it was never a Huge Ordeal and he wasn’t a huge ass about it, so he’s got a lot of loyal fans.
but now that he’s famous he’s gotten a real big head and he thinks he’s some righteous Hero Of The Common Gamer or something and he’s “”“against censorship of speech”“” aka “against being called out when he’s being a huge asshole”
anyway a couple weeks ago he was using an ableist slur on twitter and refusing to accept criticism on it. a fan VERY POLITELY responded to him with “please don’t say ret*rded, jon. it’s rude.” to which he replied “oh sorry i forgot you were ret*rded.” to which the same person replied again VERY POLITELY “nah that word is just offensive to a lot of people. it’s just about being nice! that’s all” and it just spiraled out of control from there. basically he made it pretty clear that he wasn’t open to being kinder to his fans and that he basically doesn’t give a shit about huge portions of them, and that he is not open to any sort of criticism whatsoever. it was all really really obnoxious but could SORT OF be explained by his tendency to not back down from things once he’s in deep. it was still really wrong and hurtful.
it was bad but it eventually fizzled down and everyone figured that was the end of it and he PROBABLY learned better to some extent. well the other day he posted an EXTREMELY cruel and mean spirited comic about the matter from a notoriously obnoxious tumblr artist who was a Big Deal a year or so ago. it viciously demonized the fans who VERY POLITELY corrected him for the sake of BEING A DECENT PERSON, and presented their complaints as entirely trivial and absurd. you can read it here, but i’ll warn you it’s NSFW [not where it applies to jon].
at this point it’s just blatantly obvious that it wasn’t just him being stubborn; he actually does not care about anyone but himself and thinks his fans’ feelings are a joke. he hasn’t learned, and he completely 100% does not care about being ableist. at all. and now some of his fans are pretty much fed up with him. hence the Iconic Game Grumps Quote: “you gotta draw a fucking line in the sand, dude”
it’s kind of over tbh
But will we ever talk about that time Egoraptor said Nigger constantly or will we just continue to complain over retarded shit like this.
If it's not too much trouble, can you list all the new (important) facts we now have confirmed? It'd be nice to have them listed in one place instead of floating around the fandom
I’ll do my best!
I think that’s the big stuff
EDIT: oh yea and she supports every pairing
when you’re at the beach and fully clothed and you try to grab some sand but it slips through your fingers..
