So how do you really feel about the whole thing? Like where do you stand?
Alright, this is my take on it, this is how I feel, and frankly, I don’t care what the rest of fandom thinks so there ya go.
Personally, I feel like they both fucked up. Something was lost in translation, and they’re both guilty of their own demons in this. Before Ohm even said anything, he was filtered out of Bryce’s comments, so that means something was going on before hand. Whether that be with what I said about fans previously, or something else, who knows?
Ohm has since clarified that he wasn’t throwing shade at Bryce. I don’t know if you lot have fucking forgot, but Ohm has an eating disorder. He forgets to eat because his body has adjusted from the time he was homeless, to not being able to afford food every day. That being said, with everything going on with Toonz and now Bryce, Ohm probably felt the need to throw in his point that it’s okay if you’re not ripped, that there is more to being healthy than just eating right and the physical aspect. That getting a six pack won’t automatically make you healthy, you can be ripped and still be sick as hell. Too much of a good thing is a bad thing. Ohm wasn’t trying to pick fights, but he was speaking out for the people who may be struggling, people who look at Toonz and Bryce and see the amount of progress they’ve made in such a short amount of time and feel like they aren’t doing enough or that they aren’t good enough.
Bryce started the shit show with assuming that Ohm was being rude to him. Instead of DMing him and asking what he meant by all that, Bryce took it upon himself to make it public that he felt like Ohm was throwing shade. But Bryce is the angel, the goody two shoes of the group that can do no wrong evidently. Ohm isn’t necessarily innocent either when Bryce initially responded Ohm should have said what he just posted immediately. Then the thing with Toonz happened. At this point you have fans, hundreds of people coming at Ohm, demanding he apologize, you have fans fight fans trying to keep the peace and just wanting people to let things be and let them figure it out.
Toonz has been “picking” on Bryce the last few days, he made a comment about Bryce’s new twitter icon saying he “looks like a cancer survivor” and then on the video itself, made a comment “you look like a Holocaust survivor”. Bryce joked back on both of those, at least liked the comment on his video. Well this was tweeted at Toonz, and he retweeted it making fun of the pause game, and Ohm responded about how Bryce got pissed at him but is okay with being called a Holocaust survivor. To which I agree with Ohm, that’s some backwards fucking logic, and I would be pissed about it too. As for Ohm blocking Bryce, Bryce had him filtered out first, so technically Bryce did block Ohm first, and is playing the victim.
So where do I stand? In the fucking middle. I sympathize more with Ohm because he is getting the short end of the stick here. I don’t know why, and I don’t know how, but everyone is making him out to be the villain. It’s the same shit I saw with the whole Toonz vs Terroriser drama months back. Neither are in the clear, they aren’t, but fans are making it 100x worse than it needs to be. How the fuck would you feel if someone misrepresented you and your notifications blew up with hundreds of people calling you a monster? Saying they have no respect for you? That they’re unsubbing? That you are rude and need to apologize? His heart was in the right place, he misspoke, but guys, twitter isn’t like Tumblr, I can make these long ass posts, twitter you have 140 characters to get a point across and nobody likes a chain thread! Ohm tried to keep it sweet and to the point and he’s being attacked for speaking up for people who have eating disorders, people who can’t gain or lose weight, people who are suffering from depression, anxiety, people who are skin starved.
He didn’t get it across correctly but he didn’t mean any harm in it. I’m disgusted how fast fandom will jump ship and start full on war with itself, over a guy who has done nothing but been nice and supportive. Use your fucking brains, stop being sheep, and stop sticking your fucking nose where it doesn’t belong. I don’t care if Ohm apologizes or not, I don’t care if Bryce does or not, I don’t care if they start playing together or never again. I don’t care because it’s their life, their personal lives. So while I do stand in the middle, I will defend Ohm because fuck you all for being so damn quick to stab him in the back.
