So, I’ve reblogged a lotta Channel Awesome drama recently
And honestly, it hits home to me a lot. It’s been almost a year to the date since the shit with Kearny Mesa Acura (and specific the manager Ken Tomei, although the rest of the asshole triad weren’t much use, either) began. I’ve discussed all that before and I don’t feel like getting into that again.
Suffice it to say that experience (and really, the year before that at the MINI dealership next door, from which Ken came from) is a big reason I can’t in good conscience watch any of that shit from NC again when the Walkers and their CEO Mike Michaud have treated loyal employees like complete and total garbage almost from the beginning. People finding out they were fired when they discovered their content was pulled. Creators getting harrassed on Christmas over someone she vouched for. People fainting on the movie set because no one thought about having food and water. Like, WTF.
And the grooming. Literal, actual grooming of one 18 year old content producer at the time. And the harrassment of nearly every female creator. And how their HR person had to be escorted home after the first CEO (the creep who I believe was the groomer up thread) was fired because they feared he’d attack her….only for the second CEO (Mike Michaud, who is still there) to fire her for having surgery, then forced her to sign a contract that essentially barred her from the industry so she could get her severance pay.
Every damn anti who has ever berated someone for Reylo or Shalandin or any other “problematic” anything I hope is running to unsubscribe from CA, cuttting off Patreon, sharing the Google doc to their friends, or any combination of the three at this point.
My work experience was nothing like this, but it’s still done so much damage mentally that I can’t trust people. For that alone, I won’t be supporting anything else from CA or the Walkers.
Sorry, not sorry.
