TGWTG has decided to aprrt ways with spoony. Its a shame. I think his behaviour on twiitter and other things have made it unteiable for him to continue. I hope one day he will be back.

Well, it didn't take long for Spoony to get the boot.

I'm going to assume it wasn't just his joke rape comment on twitter that led to this?

I would love for brad to have his two cents on this. However no TGWTG have made it clear it has nothing to do with that. Its just whats hes been saying and doing on twitter.

I just have a feeling there's more to this then what's being said. From what I understand of the situation, he went from being suspended for 4 weeks to being fired in the span of 24-48 hours.

I'm more worried about the guy himself. He obviously needs help, either from his friends or a mental health professional. It's like he's intentionally trying to burn every bridge he can, both professionally and personally.

People are turning on Lupa and Phelous on twitter now.

It's so sad to see some of the vile things Noah's fans are saying to Lupa.

Hey i am a fan (well maybe not for long) of spoony and i can tell you right now his forums are shut down for "movement to a diffent server" which is bullshitneesse for i don't want people trolling me.

i got fired for asking a girl if she was pregnet who was nice to me but was having a bad aday at the time, what in the hell did spoony think when talking about raping JO, she is also dating nash and i am sure radio dead air will be nuts this monday with this shit.

loadkat had a talk about this and it really was brutal. it apart of loadkat live if you want to hear, but in it loadkat said that spoony's XCOM rant at E3 is why he left TGWTG since it cost him a interview with the creater of minecraft. i think lupa also had some words there and mattew of bothameina tear him a new one.

as for lupa and others getting trolled by spoony's fans, spoonys fans have always been deranged, i was there on his forum back in 2009 and people there hated and talked vile about every single produeser at TGWTG exacpt linkara and snob. joe got shit thrown on him, and so did film brain. becuase no one stand up to mighty spoony.

really i know i will get my ass kicked for saying this and may not be a good thing to say on the first post, but at this moment i am more proud to be a fan of multicolor magical ponies then spoony, and i think the boneys should really tune it down meny notches. but spoony lost my respect.

spoony, get help, stop the internet superstar and get help.

i don't hate the guy, but i do agree he does need help. this is fucked up. it just sounds like he wants the attention. i wonder what brad thinks of this? honestly he should just fucking quit twitter. maybe he can than think about how dumb he's being. i was just on his site watching shit the other day. he's not that bad.


i had really never watched his material before. other than what's on here. but my favorite since i found him 1st i'm guessing is Brad here.

Well his actions have lived up to his name, but yea....it has to be a stream of events that caused the meltdown and the eventual termination of Spoony, and its really sad. It seems like that he never developed a "shut up, you jackass" filter in his youth and he doesn't know when he takes things too far.

I like his reviews and I never really cared to find out about his life outside of this.

PostSubject: Lord Kat   Mon Jun 25, 2012 5:28 am

Lord Kat has decided to nthrow in his two pence in and talk about Spoony in general Again I cant speak to all of it as I am sure LK has reasons to hate spoony but on of the reasons was bullshit. He said when at PaxEast when Spoony shouted "betrayal" that effected him, badly. He said people in the gaming industry saw that and it cost him haveing interviews becaue he was associated with tgwtg and peolke thought that was him. To which this is my reponse Fuck you Lord Kat even if that was the reason that shows that the gmain industry are morons. Spoony is a chracter using he yellign betrayal to punbish you shows they living in a fnatasy world. Wha thrthey going to ge tupset about next david prowse as darth vadcer sestroying the pllanet alderan or maclomlm mcdowell as caligula having sex with his sister. If thats true Kat then you should not want to talk these poepklke and demand mental healht tests for these people as they cant seem to distinguish between a real poperosn and a character, do they believe that darth vader really chokked people with his mind too.

If it weren't for Noah, I wouldn't have my career now. I love the guy like a brother, he's my friend, and I don't turn my back on friends.

i also can respect Brad a LOT for staying with him as well. i wonder if he's the only one though? i'm also not trying to start shit either. & i'm sure if Brad thought you were trying to he would have posted here MUCH sooner than he did.

Spooney does seem like a good guy to me, he just for some reason decided to stay stupid shit. i don't use twitter so i am just going by what's said here mind you. to be fair. which is why i posted very little about it.

I was surprised to hear about all this. I wanted to see what it was all about, and spoony's comment was pretty dark. If I were Nash, I'd have been pretty pissed.

Here's the thing though: All of it was water under the bridge. JessOtaku (Who Spoony's crude joke was direct at) had forgiven him and just wanted the situation forgotten. For whatever reason, Obscurus Lupa brought it back up nearly a month later. I'm not sure the reasoning behind it. Did she dislike Spoony? Was OL getting chummy with Spoony's ex (Which seems somewhat apparently by OL linking the ex's tumblr.) Some sort of way to scare up interest in her own revenue stream?

Dunno. I know this much though: If I worked with OL, I would tread fucking carefully. She seems untrustworthy and a shit stirrer. Digging up old history to get someone fired is plain out vindictive and I'd want nothing to do with a person like that.

I actually enjoyed quite a few of her videos (Well.. Until things became a bit self-indulgent with the crossovers with Phealous.) The Cynthia Rothrock schtick seems a bit of a jumping on the bandwagon of Reb Brown/Pierre Kirby "obsession" (But I like Rothrock -- she's actually a C-list celeb for Delaware, where I grew up haha.) Some of her reviews are pretty entertaining, like that God awful film "Gooby" I had never even heard of before.

But no, I severely dislike multiple things involving her in this whole debacle: Digging up something a month old? Making a public thing of it? Egging it on? Bringing his ex in to it?

Yeah, not a fan of those actions. It makes me wonder the motive too, because it was old hat when OL decided to bring it back up (The offensive tweets of Spoony's were in early May, OL dug it up publicly mid-June.)

Honestly, the only person to come out of this looking good is JessOtaku. She's been mature enough not to engage in this little pissing match in public, and has let it drop. Pretty much everyone else involved has come out looking like an utter shithead.

Edit: Truthfully, part of what makes me so angry with OL is her on LordKat's stream not even jokingly talking about how Spoony should just go commit suicide. LK has since pulled down that stream, I suppose wisely. Also the jokes about Spoony needing to get a sex change. Class fucking acts, those two.

LordKat's comment was not a "Dude, just kill yourself" one off either. It was a creepily specific "I hope Noah goes into Miles' room, unlocks the gun, puts the barrel in his mouth, pulls the trigger and blows his brains across the fucking wall and the next day the local paper reads 'Failed actor kills himself" statement. Shit is so far beyond just fucked up, telling someone who is clearly battling bipolar/depression that.

So yeah, between OL's shitty little public pissing match and picking an unnecessary fight with some really shitty tweets ("did Oreo find you a new Mommeh") and hanging out with a real class act like LordKat? Not a fan, Frank. Not a fan.

I'm not the only one who feels like OL was stirring the pot either: DiamandaHagan posted to her YouTube page a pretty funny clip from the Simpson's which sums this up.

In the comments
Quote :
Its a little more complicated than that. That comment wasn't the only one she complained about. That was the best example of the sort of thing she had an issue with. She didnt come out of it smelling of roses though (thats JesuOtakus job).

I did't want to add my 2 cents on the issue, but did want to add something as a resonable resonse so here it goes First, glad Joe and Brad (seems Sage as well) are sticking with Spoony, as the guy does need friends and friends are good as a moral support good (also enjoyed the videos on both that guy wtih the glasses and cinema snob as well) now as for this situation, while a bit over-blow to a degree, I think all sides involved in spoony depature from CA (not trying to name names but Spoony, Lupa, Lord Kat, Phealous, Oan, the fans chooseing sides...Scarlett to a degree althought thats just thought) All handle it poorly for dumb Twitter comments (hate them or not) as well as allowing personal problems being made to the for public and fans to see...(and once your on Twitter, even John Q. Public who know nothing can see it unless you have your security set up)......I know Lord Kat apolgized to the community and took any of the streams bashing SPoony fans down. Now the most important thing I wanted to say, You really have to be careful with you say on social networks like Myspace, Facebook and/or Twitter, wheather or not a personal problem, a bad joke or what. People can and will interpret what you say differntly and may not know your jokeing/drunk/bad day/trolling etc. So you have to be careful (in this case it was reviewers and fans getting involved) but you have to be careful because the internet differnt from real life. so either don't make the joke/don't have people don't be very will or get offended very easily be your friend/follower...or don't have account plain and simple. not trying to stir things up but just wanted to say something with wisdom and not chooseing sides. While I don't think it's going to happen, it be neat if Doug once he comesback with something to say on the subject about not chooseing sides since SadPanda seems to be going nuts doing it lol

I fear you slightly overstated the strength of my feelings about Lupa. Im not on Team Spoony (or Team Lupa. Im on Team EVERYONE STOP BEING DICKS)

I'v been mostly quiet because while I'v strong views about what was right and wrong about this I don't think its worth risking friendships over. So Im mostly talking in private. I'm hoping Spoony gets the help he needs for Bi-Polar, people stop harassing Lupa and everyones friends again in time for year5.

I can dream, cant I?

I agree Diamonda, that's why I wrote my post the why I did. I just took a neutral stance on it and takeing no sides. I just wish everyone would realize that when your makeing a post on whatever FB/Twitter your useing, you should not say it all or think of something else. although my orginal post was longer but the part about social networking was my main point

Well, I guess I’ll weigh in too with my Just-a-fan-don’t-know-anyone-involved-personally two cents.
I’m still not sure what the crux of all this was, if it was the rape joke or Spoony tearing into his fans on Twitter, or just a little bit of everything. I saw how things went down that night when Spoony was depressed and people were trying to cheer him up, and he was acting like a dick toward them.

I can sympathize with that from both sides, really:

A close friend of mine went through a messy breakup about two years ago, and it destroyed him in very much the same way Spoony’s breakup did. As a friend, it hurts to sit there and watch someone you care about go through that. You want to help, but you have no clue how, all you can really do is offer some advice and be there for them, listening to their pain again and again day after day.

I’ve also suffered from pretty bad depression. I’ve stopped telling people about it when I’m going through a bout because, really, they can’t do anything. I’ve been where Spoony was, where people are giving you generic, feel good lines like “Oh, Things will get better.” “Maybe you should get some help.” Or “Oh, I know how it is.” No, you fucking don’t. Real depression locks you into your own little prison that others are powerless to help you with, and them saying stuff like that, even with the best of intentions, just grates on you because you know that they don’t understand. Honestly, I think that Doctor Who episode with Van Gogh was pretty spot on comparing it to fighting monsters that no one else could see.

I’m glad that Spoony seems to be getting help with the Bi-polar now, but it’s still not gonna be an easy road.
The whole LordKat thing: I listened to the part of the rant he left up, and while I think he might have had some solid points about how Noah needs to push himself, he delivered it in the absolutely most dickish way possible. Then hearing about the “Go get your brother’s gun and blow your brains out” stuff… Jesus Christ, man… However, I do have to give him some credit: I just read his apology and I gotta say, that’s some quality falling on his sword, there. Debates of how much he actually meant it aside, I wish more public apologies were like that instead of the “I’m sorry if you were offended” bullshit.

I think the problem with the E3 business is, if LordKat really wanted to be a serious games journalist, Blistered Thumbs was not the site for him. Now I love BT and read it regularly, but it’s as much about serious video game news as TGWTG is about serious movie biz news. They’re entertainment sites, if they get interviews at E3: Cool, but that’s not the main thrust of the site.

The rape joke: Ehh, I don’t find it offensive at all as long as Spoony and JO had that kind of relationship where they were open to making such jokes. Friends and I make tasteless jokes to each other all the time. I’ve made racist jokes toward some friends and they make homophobic-sounding ones back at me. It’s all in good fun because we know that the other person really doesn’t mean it. Now the problem is when you do that in public. We’d never make such jokes or use certain words while at a restaurant because you never know what people who overhear it will think. The same logic should apply to posting on Twitter, I think. It’s dumb, but I don’t think people should hold it against Spoony if JO wasn’t offended by it.

Honestly, I think the fans are only making things a lot worse. Spoony’s fans have always been some of the worst, always trashing other reviewers and whatnot. A lot of them even turned on him and started trashing him in the comments for every video to the point that I honestly wondered why he still made videos for those ingrates. All the tolling and posting of personal info is just dumping fuel on the fire.

To Brad: Good on you for sticking up for Noah. I hear that things have been a bit bumpy for Team Snob recently, and I’m sure none of this helps. It sucks when friends are fighting and all you want to do is keep the peace with both sides. But if anyone has shown that they can handle drama with both class and the right amount of humor, it’s you.

Diamanda: Same. I really would love to see all of this blow over and everyone make up. Why does making funny internet videos have to breed so much epic drama?

I wish everyone involved the best.
