    A lot of people worked at Channel Awesome + a lot of drama = a lot of videos.
    Plus the possibility that NChick was banging Spoony then had an abortion and this broke Spoony.

    That is some epic drama right there. Looks like I'll need to check the Kiwi Farm for this crap again.

    The guy kinda runs out of things to say after being done with Doug Walker and Spoony and he just starts talking about the kind of porn Linkara watches and gossip about Lindsay Ellis out of nowhere, then unironically uses the expression "Beta cuck", don't know what's cringier, Linkara's shitty webcomic or this Merkotur guy's channel which seems exclusively about talking youtube drama and gossip.

    So Spoony was one of the first victims of internet SJW's?

    (10 mins into the video, still watching)

    Edit:

    Yep, when I herd about the movie it really worried me. Why did he had to put a movie goal? I never wanted a movie, I just wanted the videos we were already getting.

    Spoony was only victim of his own behavior.

    I think any notion of Spoony being victim of SJW-mobrule was squashed quickly by the common knowledge that he's quite a cunt.

    The kind of knowledge I try to stay most away from. There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.

    Common knowledge is fake news.

    Not necessarely, but I'd like to form up my own opinions and not just think something because most people do. Maybe he is just behaving defensively, probably out of insecurities. Internet can be a harsh place for the least mentally/emotionally stable, and he has been diagnosed with bipolar II disorder. But yeah, I'm sure most people dismiss him as just a cunt and think he deserves everything bad that happened to him.

    Just to make it clear, I'm not saying that anyone should still give him money for doing absolutely nothing at all. I'm still sad he doesn't.

    You would be ignoring 90% of his online behavior and persona. Even he admits he is a cunt.

    I'm sorry, is the term "cunt" clinical or something? I'm not even discussing what we should call him, you can call him a wadawalunga schulpruts for all I care.

    Still doesn't mean SJW's and fans of other internet celebrities ganging up on him on Twitter didn't drove an already unstable person over the edge, which explains why he auto-bans anyone criticizing him on his live stream chat. Have you ever been ganged up by your own fans and/or those of another internet celebrity? I haven't. But I'm guessing it probably isn't fun.

    And he making it worse by saying even worse things suggests defensive behaviour. Maybe not that of a stable person, but surely one of an insecure, emotionally unstable one.

    What did Spoony in wasn't even his rape joke but rather tha fact that he was making 5000 on patreon and then proceeded to do absolutely no content while pocketing the money and getting into arguments with his fans in livestreams, not to mention how even people like LordKat hated his guts. Stop riding his dick, Jesus.

    And this is why I find forum discussions to be so dissapointingly dull and useless.

    Yes, while his downfall was produced by his own mistakes, most notably including the movie goal in the first place, I don't find it as simple as the guy being a "cunt". If his big plan for ripping people off was promising a movie and then doing nothing, he must be the worse scammer in the history of internet. He literally went from 5 grand a month to next to nothing in record time.

    However I do think his mental instability combined with fan rage every internet celebirty faces at one time or another drove him to self sabotage himself into oblivion.

    Anyone with a cooler head would had admitted the movie goal could not be made or something and keep making the content he was already making (which is what his fans wanted anyway) and keep cashing in the 5 grand a month and even more later on.

    However the internet itself is a far more abrasive place than he or anyone else can be, and someone as insecure and usntable as him just cannot make it today. When your defense mechanism when attacked is being abrasive and arguing with every single idiot that is going to criticise you then it's a sign you are not going to make it as an internet celebrity. In the end he just gave up.

    Damn, he could still regain a profit if he decided to start making content again, plenty of old fans would come back to him. I doubt his plan was to retire with 300 scammed soon to disappear bucks a month. So, what is keeping him from it? His cuntness?

    It's everyone's fault but Spoony's.

    Yeah, I watched all the Guy's stuff on the subject as it was coming out, needless to say, I wasn't impressed.

    A friend of mine thought I was just needlessly defending Linkara because I like his content (spoiler! I think he is okay), but I made the point that being a good critic doesn't mean you're a good creator. Linkara, if you don't know, made what is wildly considered the worst web comic, but that doesn't mean he is a bad critic by any means.

    In all honesty, he could have made one video and just say the biggest problem with Channel Awesome is that they are entertainers first and critics second.
    Many other YouTubers (like Ralphthemoviemaker) took what Doug did, and improved it, made it his own thing. Ralph is a critic first and a film maker second (at least in his reviews).

    For the most part, Mister Merktour isn't really that interesting, then again, I can't take someone too seriously who used to call himself 'Internet Aristocrat'.

    I only know Linkara by name, never really watched his stuff.
    Of all the Channel Awesome stuff I only really watched Nostalgia Critic (before he started to make terrible sketches with his boring sidekicks), Nostalgia Chick (before she made content I just wasn't interested in, like covering stuff I simply didn't care about), Todd in the Shadows (still watching him), Film Brain (although I mostly watched his Bad Movie Beatdowns, but those were getting really rare, too). Got bored rather quickly by Angry Joe. Watched PushingUpRoses from time to time, and Obscurus Lupa. And... What was the name of that guy... Paw!

    I think Linkara's videos are bad and the guy is a self righteous prick and a cringelord, but he, contrary to Spoony, actually seems to producing what his viewers expect, and the kinda porn he watches is his bussiness. So, I don't like his content but whatever.

    I really went off the channel awesome stuff when the reviews and riffs started to turn in to low-grade comedy sketches. Pls no, you're not Monty Python.

    Got even worse when some of his reviews were just a giant skit. Yeah, just him and his buddies reenacting scenes from the movie with no actual footage. Then he got triggered by the criticism we was getting for these reviews to the point he made a speech at the end of some Christmas episode (i forget which movie he was reviewing) about how people "need to evolve" or something similar.

    I still really like a lot of his reviews before he killed the Nostalgia Critic character and i do like just a few after he brought it back. But yeah, he's nowhere as good as he was once.

    I enjoy Ralphthemoviemaker quite a bit. I like how he talks about the technical side of filmmaking and also criticize the movie/show/whatever he's reviewing.
