From the sound of things people like Jared and toxic gamers in general are why PUR is moving away from covering games on her channel. Can't say I blame her, but it really sucks that these idiots are causing the community to become increasingly narrow-minded and creepy. Wish YT would finally clamp down on it but they gotta get their $$$.
Frankly it's awful YT hasn't nuked his channel yet. Guy has pedophilia accusations WITH RECEIPTS. There's no ambiguity here.
 
I was really sad to read the PUR thread. She is such an amazing content creator and it is truly awful she experienced what she did, especially with everything going on in her life according to her Twitter.

Satchell is also amazing and his statement and disassociation was one hell of a condemnation. Guy continues to be a stand-up dude.

I honestly don't think he'll do that, there isn't any excuse

You can't apologise by saying "Sorry, I'm a horny bastard, this is who I am"

I guess he'll lay low and try and release another video like nothing happened in 6 months time

That is assuming he's not in jail
Yeah, thats the plan im counting on too. Didnt JonTron pretty much do the exact same thing? disappear from youtube for a few months and then reappear like nothing ever happened?

Lesson Here is YouTubers are people often self employed with no or little support staff.

The personal becomes.mixed with the professional when they realize there are fans willing to do a lot to get access.

The.fascade of a clean-cut YouTubers is a lie the public wants to believe. It was never true.

Jared is a 1 mil sub YouTuber. There's lots of those these days and tbh it's sad to see the reality of it all

Was*

I agree with you though, and it's easy to portray yourself one way on camera/on your channel, as it's a very controlled environment, but when you fuck up, you fuck everything in your life up

I feel like because of that this will keep on happening to YouTubers

This is generalizing and pretty unfair to actually clean Youtubers out there. Two or three bad eggs doesn't ruin a dozen.

I think he’s getting clicks from people just trolling him in comments now. But if they click off right afterwards, he’s not gaining as much traction without people actually watching the videos for more than a minute.
I'd be willing to bet its also a fair amount of people going to his page to unsubscribe as well as the folks refreshing the page constantly to see his sub count drop. Since his main page has an auto playing channel trailer that'd definitely bump up his views.

Disappointing to hear how an awful person Jared turn out to be, and it makes me rethink my teenage years when screwattack used to be a big part of my life. I'm now wondering if a similar thing happened there, as him and Craig had a huge fight in his last year, and it was the reason why he left so suddenly. Hopefully, his actions get back to him and he gets what he deserves

That would really suck I love her game stuff. Blah people suck.

This is so crushing as someone that liked a lot of his content for years and he seemed like a nice guy.

I hope there will be charges against him and he serves time. And even beyond that he's so fucked, he'll never be able to do youtube/twitch stuff anymore. The internet will just evicerate him forever.

Yeah, he came out with Flex Tape (others too) which gathered 40m+ views and successfully pivoted his channel away from video games as he had wanted to do for a long time. Then he took another hiatus but is now back to posting regular videos that get a handful of millions of views each.

Now as stupid and incorrect as Jon's comments were, they're not illegal to have. Political/racial comments are unfortunately ignored by the silent majority and supported by a loud minority, so he really didn't lose out on much. Preying on underage girls is a worse offense that has legal implications and is something everyone hates.

I really don't think PJ can get away with what he did.

Stupid and incorrect is putting it mildly, considering he was just straight up parroting white nationalist talking points.

I think ProJared was in several Completionist videos. Is he gonna take them down?
I am pretty sure some, if not most, of those were in the surplus of videos that happened to contain Greg which were already removed at Greg's request for reasons unknown. If so, oof, that entire fiasco from back when is probably a godsend now.

That's what you get when the gaming community en masse keeps going "lol there is no issue with sexism and harassment of women in gaming, people just need to grow a thicker skin!"

I've said it plenty of times; many women who used to post on this forum in particular have long since left because of that sort of shit. This stuff happens all the time and men generally have zero clue then go "huh how come there are so few women in this medium?"

Agreed. What JonTron did was bad, but didnt leave a large amount of victims behind. The only reason i think ProJared could still come back is because of how slowly his youtube numbers are dropping. Its gotten pretty slow now and is only going to get slower in the future. If he is able to come back(IE: not locked up in prison), he will still have several hundred thousand subscribers. Not sure if word of what all has happened hasnt gotten around or if most people just dont care. Will be interesting to see in the future for sure.

I don't think his subscriber count really matters. Stuff like sexting minors, cheating on his wife, and sexually luring fans isn't exactly as easy to forgive or forget

Well, aside from the Sailor Moon video, there's also one where he explicitly said that he was going to delete pics of him playing naked "unless you want them".

It was a rather old video. We all took it as a joke years ago. Oh, how naive we were.
It's amazing and disgusting that he was able to make these sorts of comments that everyone thought of as jokes and he was dead fucking serious the whole time.

It really is. Thinking back on Twitch streams i watched...every so often he would make a lewd joke. I just shrugged it off as he was trying to be funny. Little did we all know that was his true personality peeking through.

"Many a true word is spoken in jest"
Definitely seems that way.

It flaberghasts me that people are still surprised by this. The e-celeb business is just as seedy as Hollywood. Attend any convention after-party and you will see plenty of bad behavior. Most of these people are incredibly young, and are thrust into a world of extreme vice and wealth. The cosplay world is arguably worse, with a ridiculous amount of creepers.

Yikes. PUR is still getting all of my respect here. That's horrible she went through this but I'm glad she's supporting those who've been hurt.

I don't usually scour content creators' social media pages, so I could be wrong here, but I thought her shift to 80s-90s TV shows was just a personal preference. I remember there were a couple videos where she mentioned video games were a minor hobby compared to her other interests, so she wanted to take this turn to reviewing random episodes of Murder She Wrote intentionally.

And to be honest, I now have an interest in Murder She Heckin' Wrote, so she's doing something right there.

She just posted a twitter thread about how she started the murder she wrote videos entirely to avoid some real life trauma she was dealing with because her other videos weren't making her happy for 'a variety of reasons'. I assume, with her statement, that these things are related as the two threads happened close to each other.

She did a video where her TV show videos got way more hits than her video game ones, too.
