what did jontron do?

he used the word “retarded” (which is no longer an acceptable term to describe anyone with intellectual disabilities) as a negative word to describe a game console and a fan asked him politely over twitter not to do that, which, you know, is a reasonable request, seeing as it’s incredibly fucking offensive:

but jontron, being the empathetically stunted and ethically bankrupt gamer beardo we all knew in our heart of hearts that he was, blew up the entire thing, tried cracking jokes that were shitty even if you didn’t care about the slur, and generally acted like a huge asshat about it. Neil Cicierga called Jon out on twitter, telling him he was being a huge douchecanoe, and in response Jon just gushed at Neil, telling him he loved his work etc. completely ignoring the point at hand.

and then, just when you thought that you could pick up the shambles that remain of your loving devotion to Jontron’s quirky chubby gamer antics and reassemble some form of acceptance and tolerance for him as a person, he went on to call out Tim Schafer, who linked a video about violence against female gamers, and started attacking Tim about how men are depicted just as poorly as women are, exposing his final form to his fans: a whiny, self-important holier-than-thou MRA fucktruck whose only purpose in life is to prove everyone wrong about everything that isn’t about white male neckbeards.


and lo, built on nothing but piggybacking on Egoraptor’s success and cheetos dust, Jontron’s sprawling empire begins to crumble and collapse beneath him. former fans look on, horrified. i sit back and sip on a big mug of “i told you so.”

if that “officer and mr. truffles” animation gets funded I’m going to pee in someone’s hair. the “creator” of the idea has used homophobic slurs in the past and the bear cub itself was killed by the police force shortly after the original photograph was taken, so the cartoon is like some sort of sugar-coated bastardization of a real-life event that wants to pretend an innocent animal didn’t get killed

not to mention the animation is incredibly sub-par like for 80k you’d think they could have hired decent animators OH WAIT that’s right because more of their budget is being spent on merchandising than it is actually paying their animators :)))

don’t even get me started on the actual content of the short like it totally falls flat and is bland and uninteresting even for a kid’s show, like if I wanted to watch the same rehashed Abbott and Costello bit I’d just turn on some old Bob Clampett or Yogi Bear cartoons jesus christ

here are the newest addition to my family, two guinea pigs!! They were rehomed from a family who couldn’t keep them anymore, and were in a very tiny cage for 2 years, but I built them a new modest home and am trying to get them to eat fresh veggies!!

Their names are SLAG and SWAMP LORD!!

Update: bad days

The day before yesterday, I lost my job because of “budgetary constraints.” Yesterday, I lost my wallet on the street, and someone started making purchases with my credit card. I’m now out of a credit card for a while, and with no driver’s license, I can no longer go to Anthrocon.

I had been planning to go to Anthrocon for a very long time and was looking forward to meeting a lot of people I knew there. I have wanted to go for 2 years but was never able to and I thought this year I could go, but fate wouldn’t have it that way.

I paid upwards of 80 dollars for a Greyhound bus ticket to Pittsburgh from NY that I’m unable to refund because the Greyhound customer service line is conveniently out of service. In order to get a refund otherwise I have to mail my ticket to some sketchy place in Texas.

I lost my wallet on my way to my college’s career center, which was supposed to help me get a new job, but I had to bail on my appointment since my ID was then gone.

I had to borrow money from my girlfriend’s last 20 dollars she had - after she lost her wallet 5 days ago - in order to pay for my prescription medication I needed that day before I ran out.

As I’m out of a job, I’m currently taking all kinds of commissions, either animated or illustrated! Prices totally negotiable. My paypal is fortycakes@gmail.com. Thanks so much for being supportive as always, you guys.
