As a person who is multifandom I know (and accept) that no one group can always stay in the top…but everything points to EXO being the rightful winners of their nominations…just because their humble does not give the right for people to step on them like this…
You can’t defend Logan Paul. What he did was absolutely disgusting and the pinnacle of him making a jackass out of himself in Japan. Throughout his visit he has been obnoxious to the Japanese. Tourists like him are why people from other countries dread when Americans visit.
There is a process to making videos. You have to go back and edit them. If he was truly that troubled by seeing that hanging, he would have most likely edited it out. He would have cut the footage there.
But, Logan wanted to see a suicide. That’s the reason why he came into that forest with his crew, that’s the reason why he purposely went off the designated trail (they have that in place so tourists don’t see anything). And the worst part of it is, he exposed his very, very young audience to an actual hanging. He blocked out his face, but he still zoomed in, he still showed the purple, swollen hands to children. If he was truly that shaken, he would not have put the man’s corpse in his thumbnail. He put that there to get people’s attentions and views, to prove he wasn’t click baiting.
What about the children who watch his videos who did lose someone they loved to suicide? That could be extremely triggering for them.
If he had really cared, he would have stopped recording and he would have alerted the park. But, no, he and his friends laughed and joked and focused on the corpse. Remember, his audience is mostly consisted of kids and young teens. If any of them were struggling with their mental health, what kind of message does that give them?
And for that poor man, we don’t know why he did it. Maybe he had mental health issues or maybe he struggled with a chronic, physical illness and didn’t want to hurt anymore, but not long ago, he was a breathing, living human being with family and friends. Those that knew him would be able to recognize him immediately from the video, and to have this dumbass American and his merry band of idiots put his hanging corpse all over the internet and make a complete joke out of it must be the worst feeling in the world. No matter what they do, that video will never go away. They saw their friend, their brother, their husband, father, son, boyfriend’s corpse in a thumbnail of a viral Youtube video, used to get views and coverage.
He chose a secluded spot to end it all, hoping not to get any attention, and look what happens. His struggle and lost battle was turned into a joke for millions of people to see. I hope he found peace because even in death, he couldn’t get it.
Logan is twenty-two. He’s not a kid, stop babying him. He’s a grown ass man who knows right from wrong, and he should face consequences for his actions. He purposely exploited a suicide victim. Even a teenager can tell you that’s fucked up. He knew what he was doing.
Most importantly, though, parents seriously need to start monitoring what their children see on YouTube and be aware. Between this and Elsagate, their children are being exposed to horrific images. YouTube needs to get their shit together.
Magnus Bane, ray of sometimes salty sunshine, man who helps everyone that comes barging through his door, protects his downworlders, has finally found love again…
is dealing with…
… being trapped in Valentine’s body. Arrested and tortured and questioned. Possibly being hit or shoved or otherwise treated violently by his lover, who clearly does not immediately realize it’s him in Valentine’s body. Is in the body of a genocidal shadowhunter who just killed hundreds of his people. Is about to get executed in said body for said crimes. Has his home, his life, his relationships, his body being violated by this genocidal shadowhunter. There are so many violations of Magnus’ person right now that I just can’t breathe with it.
And I still see posts about how Alec will feel. I love Alec. But this story line is Magnus’. This is Magnus’ pain. His violation. All of it. It’s his. I need to see him dealing with it, good or bad. I need to see him being taken care of and reassured and given what he needs to process what’s happened to him.
I hate to be THAT person but I’m gonna talk about Scoups for a second.
Scoups is such a good friend, leader, and person. He alone went to the last episode to cheer on not only Kim Samuel, who he was suppose to debut with but Nuest who he also was suppose to debut with. Scoups was suppose to debut with Nuest and guys if things were different it could have very well been him up there also with those 4 boys. He’s probably just as close with all the Nuest members as he is with his own members, due to how long they trained together and that they’re all the same age. He went to support his friends.
I just keep seeing people mention Scoups and Samuel, which is valid. He practically watched this boy grow up and then watched him debut before Seventeen and then watched him join this shit show. But with Nuest I feel like it runs just a bit more deep cause that could have been him too.
