Yeah there were quite a few tweets voicing disappointment that he had been given a panel. No idea if it went beyond that. I'm sure his choice of co-host didn't help matters.
Agreed. This was extremely unprofessional.I haven’t cared at all about Colin since 2017 but it does seem pretty unprofessional of PAX to book someone, ask them to promote the panel/the show in general and then cancel on them out of the blue. Like I’m not defending Colin at all because I don’t care for him but maybe just don’t book him in the first place?
Sucks if people did actually buy tickets just for him, although I imagine there’s a lot of crossover fans who would find a lot else to enjoy out of PAX with or without him.
Extremely well thought-out and written. Based on that we can guarantee Colin will take his ball and go home with no response of substance to be seen. That's been his go-to reaction every time somebody actually pushes back against his vile bullshit.
His replies are somehow even worse than I expected
I don't.Her response was extremely articulate and spot-on. That was a really good opportunity for him to do some self reflection, so it's sad yet predictable that he brushed it off.
I'm glad she emphasised the point that the joke was irrelevant to why the industry has shunned him. I have a hard time believing he doesn't understand that.
Wanna agree with this too; I’m not a big fan of either Andrea or Jared but at least they’re not actively awful people.
It's cute that you think he even remotely has any legal ground to stand on here.In this case it's interesting to see that even Kinda funny best friends or people who openly are against Colin agree that Pax did something strange.
Sure there are people celebrating this and not all of them look good. Someone from a games website wrote people should just trow milkshakes at Collin and another one wrote something that only could meant something like "Colin should just kill himself".
Pax should never have invited him, especially now lawyers have come forward things could get messy
Is his show really that popular? I don't ever see it mentioned anywhere or talked about outside his own sphere. Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places.There's no legal grounds to question the cancellation, but I will stand by my opinion that their ethics were disgusting in this case. They booked him due to Sacred Symbols' huge popularity, encouraged him to promote the show to his listeners, and then pulled the plug at the last minute after he helped them sell tickets. That's gross, and while I don't believe it was a cynical decision to use and abuse him, they deserve A LOT of scrutiny for booking him at all, let alone everything that happened after.
It is always a little difficult to get precise numbers. On YouTube he has some reviews that have huge viewerships. The podcast only has around 10.000 to 18.000 viewers. Since that's only a still image most people probably listen to the podcast on other devices and it's hard to find those numbers.
Colin will never hear criticisms. He participated on the forum a couple years ago and every time someone made a sincere criticism, he completely ignored it and replied only to the few kneejerk posts that were easy to make look bad.Extremely well thought-out and written. Based on that we can guarantee Colin will take his ball and go home with no response of substance to be seen. That's been his go-to reaction every time somebody actually pushes back against his vile bullshit.
EDIT: Just saw his response to it. Typical fucking man-baby.
