ProJared Allegedly Creeped On, Fished for & Sent Nudes to Fans, including Underaged Fans [UP: ProJared responds, see threadmarks]

I question the legality of Holly's actions if she had been trying to silence Jared's victims.

I am not a lawyer or a man of the law so I don't know what she'd be charged with? Attempt to cover up a crime?

Another thing I don't get is why on earth did Holly not run to the hills when fans especially underage ones had come forward about the abuse? Did she just assume "fake news"/"Bitches want Jared's clout?"

I think if it came to a investigation the prosecutor would flip her and let her walk to get Jared. All she has to do is play dumb and tell a story of how she was manipulated.

How come we're now in an age of supposedly gender equality and whateverthefuckelse and we still get peeps having a stick up their bum over what other people are wearing, in this case for fun no less.

Hate the guy for sexually exploiting minors and cheating on his wife. Perfectly OK.
I double dog dare you fuckers to hate on him for wearing a freaking skirt.

(Unless his dangly bits actually poked out underneath and it was a cropped-for-sanitys-sake that kind of image he sent to minors. Then hate away.)

Long story short: Overcooked on Switch came out all fucked up, Nick Robinson got weirdly aggressive towards the devs on it, someone tweeted something like “Maybe he could help the devs if he wasn’t sliding into DMs all the time” and it snowballed from there.
I need to buy Overcooked 2 sometime that's goddamn amazing.

I think, here on resetera at least, the reason you are seeing so many people "focused on the cheating" instead of the worse stuff with minors is because people keep popping up to defend the cheating. No one is defending the pedophilia, so there's less conversation about that. A shocking amount of people do want to come in and downplay the months of emotional abuse and gaslighting involved in the cheating because "cheating is just personal life", and so you see a lot of conversation where people are having to remind "no, that was a really fucked up thing to do."

If the accusations of her trying to silence victims is true, and any of those people were the underage victims he was preying on, she belongs under the jail right next to him.
Ok see I’m not even caught up on THAT. You’re right if that’s what she did she’s complicit

Pfft, Sailor Mercury is still the best, as a young boy that was nerdy and a bit shy, she was my favorite and still is, though, let's be fair, she is not the best anime/manga character with the name of a planet/star, no character in Sailor Moon is, everyone knows that honor goes to Tentai Senshi Sunred.
Dude that's the whole reason anyone likes her. She was the shy nerdy one that all the shy nerds wanted as their wife. You're going into a fight do you want some fuckin bubbles or a lightning strike or a flame blast?

Deffos where I’m at. By all means dunk the man into the center of the earth but if you’re using this as opportunity to poo poo cross-dressing you can step off

It definitely seems like this whole thing has deeply affected those in Jared’s social sphere. PBG hasn’t uploaded in days, Ian seems under the weather, and now Satchel Drakes is leaving Normal Boots.

Just came to my mind that I basically learned Magic by watching his series on that one classic Magic game for old Windows, and he was all "bullies are bad, I hate it, I even served one of them, I'm such an ally" and now I have this disgusting taste in my mouth. I wasn't a huge fan or anything, but I did watch a couple randomizer and the main channel videos. Ugh. Fucking predator.

I thought it was EXACTLY that kind of image? One of the victims (tweet no longer exists) mentioned getting the image with a visible penis.
I didn't check it (no thanks, I'm good) but you're free to check it here:
Suddenly, this makes a whole lot more sense

I'll eat crow if you don't see a dick here, I didn't want to check it myself. But that's the impression i got from all the replys to it.

She also had a computer which i could relate to, but yeah, as a young boy, that was one of the two magical girls show i watched, this and Cardcaptor Sakura, and well, i can see why Jared didn't cosplay that series...because unlike the Sailor Scouts, Sakura didn't get a costume when she transformed and she had a friend giving her a different costume each episode and there would just be too many costumes for Jared to pick...okay, that and Cardcaptor Sakura not being as popular as Sailor Moon but tell that to hipster young me!

With regards to Satchell, it’s honestly a respectable decision, considering what has transpired this past week. You sometimes have to go with your gut feeling & stick to your morals.

NormalBoots will be worse off without him, though.

Is NormalBoots done for? At first I was kinda sad for all the people who are working on that company and getting shit by proxy... but then I remembered that NormalBoots was founded by JonTron and he's still "active" as a founding member. They have done zero effort to distance themselves from him and his views. Oh welp.

I would say it's less about a man wearing a skirt, and more about said man dressing up as an underaged character provocatively

doesn't help that he also targeted minors

Jon hasn't been a part of NB since the Destiny fiasco. They basically kicked him out - even though PBG was the only one publicly giving him shit and subsequently got dogpiled on by a bunch of other popular content creators, while Jirard and DYKG's Shane basically were like "nope not touching this" - and Jirard's brother manages the company nowadays. Not that it really mattered since Jon barely gave a shit about the site anyway and seemed more interested running off to make sponsored overproduced adverts.

No, they kicked JonTron out, and now they've kicked out ProJared with equal force.

Feel like this thread might need to close, at least untl new information is brought up, it feels like we've moved from any meaningful conversation and we're now going into shitposting, honestly some borderline pro-Transphobia and anti-crossdressing territory and petty name calling.
LOL what?

Please show some examples of this, I have not seen ANYTHING of the sort.

PBG had already ended his friendship with Jontron behind the scenes by the time the Destiny thing happened. I remember JonTron only got in like, 2 seasons of Minecraft Hardcore, and never had him in any group events like those ever again.

They posted this when JonTron left:


Jon hasn't been kicked out of NormalBoots. It says that right there. I don't see any statement like this one for ProJared. Not that he (or JonTron) deserves anything, mind you. But don't try to sell me that NormalBoots completely shunned JonTron like they have done with ProJared.

PBG doesnt post content very regularly from what I recall. That's not to say something this big wouldnt mean he keeps away for a bit because it's going to dominate all discussion for the near future. NormalBoots crew is probably just crushed that 2 of the big name members ended up being such human garbage.

At this point those remaining should be considering dumping the name and forming a new group. You can't really salvage the name anymore.

PBG posts to his main channel irregularly, but he has a second channel for Let's Plays, his Hardcore series, and other random content on a mostly daily basis. He hasn't posted to his gameplay channel since all of this went down, though.

They posted this when JonTron left:

OK.

Also, chill a little. Even if they didn't specifically say they dropped him, it's very clear that Jon has not been a part of NormalBoots since then. He could have been given an ultimatum such as "Leave, or we'll throw your ass out." If he chose to leave under such an ultimatum, then he wasn't fired or thrown out in the legal sense.

The issue is that JonTron is a founder. He and PBG founded NormalBoots, and that requires more legal hoops to jump through to kick a founder. He did as much as he could do and JonTron's name and content are nowhere to be found on the website. When the Destiny debate happened PBG was dragging JonTron on Twitter.

It’s not creepy because he’s crossdressing, it’s creepy because of, uh, literally everything else.

But correct me if I’m wrong, the crossdressing is why people are posting and laughing at it, right? Because people equate crossdressing and non-gender-normative behavior with sexual deviancy, and this picture links those with pedophilia as well? Jared’s a piece of shit. Making fun of him for crossdressing isn’t putting him down, it’s putting down crossdressing.

If a gross piece of shit dressed up as a character you liked, would you refrain from dunking on said piece of shit just because he happened to be crossdressing for that costume?

It's not even that good of a crossplay, for Christ's sake. He's just slouched and sprawled in a lazy, provocative way in a dimestore Mercury costume and isn't even wearing a wig or anything.

ProJared is shit. His attempt at crossdressing is shit. His dragging Mercury through the mud is shit.

You hear comedians talk about this exact issue, because it comes up a lot for them. They have a joke that they feel is punching up at people with racist/transphobic/misogynistic/ableist beliefs, but they try out the joke and realize people are actually laughing at the marginalized group, so the joke ends up punching down when they intend for it to punch up. So they stop performing the joke, or change it so it doesn’t punch down anymore. Anthony Jeselnik’s NY Times interview last month talked about exactly this.

When I make a joke, I don’t just think “what if this joke lands perfectly?” I think “could this joke backfire and do more damage than I intend?” So to answer your question, yeah, I’d refrain. There’s plenty to shit on this asshole over. I don’t need to provide transphobic people with easy shit to post and laugh at, that supports their view that non-gender-conforming behavior is associated with sexual deviancy or pedophilia.

Boy I sure do remember when the Jontron stuff was happening and that barely anybody gave a shit. And still don't.
At least people now are giving a bit of a shit with regards to Projared.

A feel bad for NormalBoots.

I know that I'm going to regret this but, did that Sailor Mercury pic surface before or after this whole mess?
I don't know when that particular photo came about, but he dressed up as Sailor Mercury by the end of his video about Sailor Moon video games, so it doesn't surprise me after all this crap that he'd pose like that in the costume.

That's because gamers are largely trash people. Speaking as a gamer myself. It's been an illuminating time, since GamerGate.
I sincerely hope that’s isn’t a consensus. Like any other virtual environment that affords some level of anonymity, you are likely going to have a disproportionate number of jerks who feel enabled by said anonymity. You’re likely also going to have a larger number of folks with some form of mental illness as opposed to f2f. But that said, it’s just people...there are good, bad, and anything along the spectrum between.

Tbh when the s**t hit the fan with Jontron they should've just disbanded the group and started something new. The stuff he said was bats**t. It leaves a dark cloud over everyone. I readily admit that I am not well versed on all the details re normalboots but seeing that for the first time it really doesn't sit well with me.

I don't disagree. I do wonder with all the events that have happened, if NormalBoots may disband. I dunno how much strain they can withstand.
