Angola / Zaire border region.
Why does he gets the benefit of people thinking he has a mental health issue instead of him just being, you know, a racist and a bigot?
I think because of his past actions. He had a Youtube account with more than 700k followers that he got deleted after growing increasingly erratic and then posting hentai porn videos on it. He said he was struggling with certain mental issues at that time, which is easy to believe considering he was one of the biggest Smash youtubers and got his account deleted right before Ultimate came out. Essentially setting an enormous pile of money on fire.

Also he is black, so his use of the n-word is obviously not the same as if a white youtuber said it. Although that doesn't excuse the anti-latino and anti-gay slurs.

Again? Does this not count?
How does this not count?

Unless if rampant racism and homophobia on a series of tweets isn't stupid?

Do we blame Ambien this time? Mental health isn't an excuse for this sort of behaviour. Lots of people (myself very much included) have suffered from mental health issues yet don't do this.
What do you mean by "Does this not count ?" ?

I didn't say that what he did is excusable but rather his mental health makes things worse. I just wanted to suggest a solution for this guy since he is not in a stable state and also needs to understand the consequences of his actions.

He's an absolute cunt, and that's the bottom line. Imagine going around spewing hatred like that with a viewership size he has.

I've reported him on Twitter anyway, hopefully he's banned on that.

People saying he got hacked need to remember that he torpedoed his own Youtube account, which had more than 700,000 subscribers. This is basically nothing compared to that.
Just read up on this and what the fuck? This guy really is a moron. The kind of moron who could legitimately say this kind of shit in the OP.

Scratch what I said earlier. His history lead me to believe he could either be legitimately saying this garbage or faking getting hacked.

They don't seem like statements or beliefs. I haven't watched him since the last event, but he's tweeting all kinds of nonsense bull shit right now. Those tweets seems more akin to a "tee hee" kind of tweet. Obviously those words are not OK to use, but the context here is just...too vague. It's like he thought of "top 10 words you're not supposed to say" and splurted them out. He did add "you" before some of them, but these don't seem targeted or like he's been holding back these beliefs for a long time. I don't know...Look I just think you shouldn't cherry pick those three tweets when there's a greater context of some WILD shit from the past 24 hours.

Especially when he's saying shit like this

He's either on drugs, has mental issues, and/or is doing this for attention.

I'm so over it tbh.

He learned all the wrong lessons from the last time. Dude needs to start acting like a fucking adult.

I'm in the same boat as Beef, here. He doesn't get the benefit of a doubt after his last stunt.

Well he just deleted it, but he said something like, "Well, sorry for clogging up your twitter for the past 48 hours. I'm going to sleep. See ya tomorrow!"

So yeah, a stunt most likely.

Given the content he does which is family friendly Nintendo, he is really pushing the button with this.

Would not be surprised if Nintendo of America decides to never let him touch their stuff and takes down anything Nintendo related. It's bad publicity for Nintendo to gave Erika cover their stuff even if he isn't affiliated with them.

And if that at all happens that's a huge blow.

Considering his last "mental breakdown" was just a publicity stunt gone bad, I hesitate to think that's the case.
let’s consider the possibility that his last mental breakdown wasn’t just a publicity stunt and that what is going on behind the scenes is more embarrassing for him than lying and saying it was a publicity stunt. Just because we watch these people on Youtube or twitch, doesn’t mean we know what’s going on in their personal lives. Streamers lie when they’re on stream, they have an image to maintain.

Spoony never did anything as bad as this (to the best of my recollection) but the blowups and the way his “fans” egg him on reminds me a lot of the post-halcyon days of TSE. I stand by my original post, that one of his friends or a family member needs to get him to log off because what he’s doing is toxic.

They could blacklist him like they did to Josh Tomas, but I don't think they send him stuff and invite him to events in the first place.

except that he fully admitted that it *was*, and that the main (but not sole) motivator behind it was money that he was *not* getting because of the network he was a part of

fuck him
