I'm not asking for sympathy but the thread should be renamed to what it is: Boogie2988 Hate Thread
Honestly this. 31 pages. I would get it if he was presenting or involved with the show in any way, but he was just invited to attend. Like, I get that he's a piece of shit, but this seems like overkill, people.

A real humble human being doesn’t brag about his six figure salary income, and then literally a few hours later manipulate an Arcade Cabinet company into sending him free Cabinets, by threatening to post a negative video and sic his fan base on them.
What is this about? I saw the video where he said he got a faulty cabinet (something with the track ball if i remeber correctly), but whats the source/info regarding him manipulating them? Is this another unrelated case?

And just wondering, how do we know how much he makes a year?

James Rolfe? The same guy who is friends with AlphaOmegaSin, who is a gamergater? And Mike draws racist as fuck comics.
Being friends/peers with them doesn't mean James bad, otherwise literally everyone is a bad person because they have or have had bad friends at some point. I can't stand AOS at all but most of the YTers who are friends with him seem to only be so due to him being in their niche and him being big enough that he's pretty much a mandatory peer, unfortunately. The YTers I watch don't talk or act as awful as he does so it's very ignorant to think being peers with someone that big means you're just like them. By that logic I'd be hyper racist since my grandmother is a super irritating and unbearable Trump Supporter who doesn't believe he's done anything bad in his entire life (and has said plenty of stupid awful shit that makes me mad) while I'm someone who just wants nothing to do with him and cannot take him seriously at all. Yet my grandmother also saved my life from my abusive mom's boyfriend and I've seen her before she went into the Fox News pit as one of the best nicest people ever, so I can't just throw her away over that stupidity either. I just fight and hope that Fox News crumbles and she gets out of this awful phase.

Same with most big YTers and Boogie since I know people like TheCompletionist and so many other YTers are still peers/friends with him due to his channel size, yet Boogie going off the rails like this is a thing. Quite honestly, I'm unsure what to think since Boogie seemed to start out as someone very relatable to me (extremely nasty childhood with bad living conditions which required being rescued and relocated to a safer life) but as of late he just comes off as worse and worse and utterly out of his mind. Even after nearly dying to an abusive side of the family, I'd never do half the shit he's done in just the past year alone. Combine that with how he's nearly 40 and he doesn't act like it at all.

Gotta say this thread is a bit off the rails though... Seems like the point's been driven already and it should probably be locked.

I'm posting the videos again

https://clips.twitch.tv/TalentedFaintSwordJKanStyle

https://clips-media-assets2.twitch.tv/224416861.mp4

First one is of him mocking a suicide. The second is him mocking his dead gf and giggling while talking about how treatment of one cancer gave another cancer.
Holy shit most of the people in that chat are even taken back by what he is saying. Never liked the guy but this is some horrible stuff I can't believe followers think this is ok.

Read through and see what people have been willing to defend, then you may get an idear of the purpose here.

Dude isn’t even a real fence sitter.

He’s just a manipulative asshole who understands that pretending to see both sides and be a neutral party makes him grow and makes people see him with good Will and a good light. He does all of this to make money. He’s such a pathetic sorry excuse for a human being.

A real humble human being doesn’t brag about his six figure salary income, and then literally a few hours later manipulate an Arcade Cabinet company into sending him free Cabinets, by threatening to post a negative video and sic his fan base on them.

A man making six figure salary doesn’t have to beg yesterday on Twitter to DICE to send him a free copy of Battlefield V so he can make a “honest unbiased review.” How is it possible to be honest and unbiased when you begged for a free game and got it.

A self proclaimed champion of trans right doesn’t continuously pat himself on the back for his “help” towards the community, and use it to try and sweep away his shit comments. He always mentions and brahs about how “I MARCHED FOR TRANS! I TOOK A PUNCH DEFENDING A TRANS FRIEND IN HIGHSCHOOL! I DONATED TO MY TRANS MAGIC COMMINITY. I’M AN ALLY!”

A supporter of the Gay community doesn’t make comments saying “You know, the gay community should have just been kinder and more understanding. They went too fast making gay marriage legal and wanting equal rights. They should have waited 20 years to avoid making homophobic bigots uncomfortable.”

A supporter of Jews doesn’t go around and says “You know, some good came out of the holocaust!”

A supporter of Women doesn’t go around and run an old porn blog and objectify the shit of of sex workers and try to sound like a pimp. He doesn’t go around and praise Rapist and undermine the pain they caused to his own fucking sister.

Oh, by the way, did you know that in those old Porn Blogs, Boogie made racist comments saying Africans all die of AIDS?

Oh, by the way, did you know recently (a month ago) Boogie hired a woman to be a companion for Videos, and She bluntly told Boogie she is not attracted to him, but Boogie housed her for 2 weeks and showed her off on social media, in his own words “To make those small dick losers mad because I’m hanging out with hot girls. Yeah I used her for views and clicks.”


Oh, and he lies about how he met that woman. He said he met her through traditional means, and later admits he met her via websites made for paid arrangements?

Oh, and hours after bragging about hanging out with said attractive woman and posting about it on social media, he messaged his EX-WIFE passive comments? Wonder what his intentions was there.

Boogie is a complete piece of shit and I’m sorry if I sound so extreme. I just really fucking hate him. I’m 2013 he suckered me into feeling sorry for him and supporting him and giving him clicks and a platform for 5 fucking years, and then he reveals his true face. He’s a disgusting human being and I want him to be broke, alone, and miserable.

I bet you right now Boogie is crying on Twitter and trying to sweep away all the awful shit he says and does with his classic excuses of “I HAD A BAD CHILDHOOD I WAS VICTIMS OF ABUSE. I DISASSCOIATE WHEN I SAY THESE THINGS. I’M SO SORRY.”

Fuck Boogie. Fuck him.
Sorry I slept on this post but some of the information in here is new to me. Presumably all of this can be sourced and if all of these are factually accurate then boogie is an even more reprehensible asinine filth than I had earlier credited him to be.

Fucking gaming culture and its disgusting and abhorrent gatekeepers being glorified globally thanks to events like Game awards and E3.

Which reminds me, given some of the tweets predate E3 2018 substantially and despite that he was invited, it is clear that the bigger names forming larger gaming bodies have no qualms with associating with boogie as long as it brings in enough eye balls. It is the reason why YT clearly feature more hate mongering clickbait gaming videos for gaming in general. They know the culture is vast and toxic and the leverage it for all its worth.

Its one thing to for them to just be there on their own whim and the host of the show publically inviting them to be there
It's a bit different when he's being publically invited and welcomed by the organizer....
oh I didn't know if Keighley directly personally gave him the invitation & tickets, or if the Boogie guy just got tickets on his own

if it's the former, then that's a bit different

I said the same shit when it was at 18 pages... but look at some of the shit people are posting first. It's a rabbit hole of fuckery.

I'm going to propose a theory:

this thread would be a lot shorter if the bigot didn't have people caping for him.

Of course. But I think people need to really side eye and be a little suspicious of people who know what there friends are like and still choose to associate with them. Like, are you going to sit out all of James' videos he does with Mike for example? Or are you going to sit there and be entertained by a racist and his friend that you like? James is and always has been the lifeblood of Cinemassacre, and mike is along for the ride and I know he does a lot of the tech and social media shit, which makes it even worse. James is either racist as well at worse, or complacent with being friends with GamerGaters and racists at best, which is why I dropped him, and why people like Geoff and James should be held accountable for the company that they keep.

And I'm genuinely sorry about what you went through, even though I don't know the extent of it, if you can relate to Boogie's I can only imagine.

Geoff keeps him around and continues to showcase him even during his e3 specials. Why continue to help and put the spotlight on someone that is not at all deserving of it? Especially in an industry that isn't exactly lacking in great people who are trying to carve their way through games journalism/media in general. But no, let's keep flying Boogie out and having him rub shoulders with people that can help further his career, give him more money and even more attention.

It's trash no matter his role.

Doesn't Mike own the bigger portion of the Nostalgia Critic?

Oh please. People are literally just regurgitating what the man himself has said and linking to his own videos and tweets. That's not a hate thread that's a compilation of citations.

It's up to people to form their own opinions based on what the dude has said. It sounds like you've made up your mind.

Oh really?

I had a traumatic childhood too, I didn't realize supporting Nazis and misogyny was a side effect. I guess we should just give him a pass huh, after all he isn't privileged in the least and ha no way to learn how to be a good person
No those are valid complaints. My point was at least half of this thread isn't about those issues.

This thread went from highlighting real issues to just shitting on all aspects of someone that clearly has mental issues from a traumatic childhood that I don't think anyone can imagine going through. Pretty disgusting imo.
People who are mentally ill still have to be held to task when they do shitty things. It's insulting to mentally ill people to treat them like infants.

This man speaks about oppression in terms of disability politics. He understands enough to have no excuses for this. The mental illness brigade needs to give it up. He knows exactly what he is doing.
Exactly. It's like the white people persecution complex conjecture. "The only actual oppression in the world is oppression against me".

And I say that as someone who is WASP af

ok got it thx

if that's the case then I don't know what the big deal is

To those of you who don't know what I mean, think of it this way -- are you going to boycott a public event just because some other visitors are conservative?

Like if you go to a big sports game, obviously you should know that not every fan in the stands is a progressive liberal. Or a Broadway show, or a park event, or a concert, etc
The big deal is Keighley and Cory Balrog calling Boogie a friend. Not that he is just tolerated, but also highlighted by the industry people like that.

That's Mike Michaud (Channel Awesome); I think they're talking about Mike Mattei (Cinemassacre).
I actually meant Mike Mattei, I just got the two angry old media dudes confused. My understanding was that Rowlfe didn't know much about video games to start with while Mike Mattei does; Mattei is half of the empire and is involved with everything.

Although in this case I'll note that I'm genuinely not too familiar with this particularly territory, I've only been reading up on them a bit recently.

I'm fucking tired of this neutral "well.....wait a-minute fellas let's calm down and just talk about it" BULLSHIT.

At this point of history, if you're still undecided, if you're still politically unmotivated or unaffiliated. Listen to me:

FUCK YOU.

There is straight up evil shit happening around you and you don't have the backbone to stand up and say: "No. This isn't alright."

At best you're a coward. At worst you're an enabler.

FUCK

What kind of asshole suggests that Boogie having mental illnesses makes it disgusting to criticize him?? Either they're implying that those with mental illnesses should be treated as children, or that mentally ill people cannot help but be bad people

And turns out that either one of those sentiments is a shitty thing to think, so pick your poison I guess?

I don't like the guy either but people ITT act like big personalities like Geoff are aware of every single thing that happens with every single person invited. Come the fuck on, stop judging people thinking that they are "actively supporting nazis" or shit like that. Is it that hard to realize they might not even know? It's not like all they do is use Twitter and browse Reddit / Resetera.

It's kind of their job to know this stuff, and also this shit about boogie isn't exactly buried information.

It's amazing how every time I've refreshed this thread today there's been another uniquely heinous thing he's said or done posted that I hadn't seen posted in another thread about him.
That's what kills me about the fucking video game industry: the receipts are all right there staring at everyone in the face, yet we continue to allow these sacks of shit to flourish and peddle their bigoted views.

If they don't know, this thread is now a good starting point for knowing going forward. Some serious receipts in here.
