    Thanks bowblax your videos have been great. A full recap of this drama is now archived thanks to your work. As an old fan of the new grounds community I've been watching their content since 2010 and lately (the last 5 years) it's been sad watching airn change and reject his former peers, this drama was the boiling point to something that has been heating up under the surface for awhile now. Airn definitely deserves criticism off this as he attempts to hide from it as of late, people are saying this drama is trivial and pathetic and too an outsider looking in I can see why they'd think this, all I can say is that airn has burnt bridges and has rejected the ones close to him because they don't fit his new agenda, the criticism from fans and other creators isn't about the pelo video it's about everything he's done these last few years that he's avoided criticism for through his echo chamber.

      Arin is a very unattractive man. And as an unattractive man he has to virtue signal in order to win the favor and validation of women - including his spiteful, off-putting, obnoxious girlfriend. It's the only way. Hence why he is doing it. He desperately wants to be liked by the opposite gender. And no one could ever like him because of his visual appearance. So he has to compensate for it with political correctness and faux feminism.

      The video is alright but it's just Twitter screenshots. Kiwifarms shows a lot more info. Tom Fulp also made several posts in a thread about the whole situation asking people not to attack Egoraptor because it will set a bad example on Newgrounds. Both of them had a talk and they're still in good terms. But I can totally understand everyone's frustrations because Egoraptor was treating Newgrounds like it's /b/. Also gotta love the Game Grumps stans defending Arin's past but would gladly ruin Max G's or Pewdiepie's career for their past.

    Game grumps fans still won’t accept the videos just like how videos critiquing Matpatt.

      I'm not sure on what moral high ground these idiots are talking about. Just because you are popular because of something, doesn't mean you owe anything to that community. This is especially true for fame, you can circlejerk about other shit however much you want, but saying "newgrounds made you!!! Dummy!!!!!" Is a wholly stupid idea. If newgrounds became a website about literal nazism and Erin disavowed the site, this shitty argument says that he's not allowed to make judgements because he was once successful because of the site??? Do you know how stupid that sounds?

        I think the most perplexing thing, is the sentiment Arin has that "everyone deserves respect" as a reference to telling dark jokes in the past. Does that mean when he was telling those jokes, he didn't respect the target of the joke? But NOW he does? Idunno man. All humor is going to be at someone's expense. That's the nature of humor; it's ironic. Whether you're laughing at your self or at someone else, as long as everyone is comfortable, nobody should worry about the greater implications of what was said. And maybe in some cases, if someone has hurt feelings, maybe they're overreacting. As late as Jon-grumps, I feel like he understood that still. Like, oops, it turned out Jontron was an alt right sympathizer, but nobody thought that shit then when he was telling racist jokes. It was just two friends sitting in the same room talking shit, trying to make eachother laugh.

        The growth of Arin into this toothless Rhett and Link wannabe is in direct corelation to his feelings expressed in those tweets. He's ashamed of a person he used to be, back before he was a businessman before an artist, and he honestly wonders why his contemporaries turned on him like that. I can only imagine what it must feel like for all your internet buddies to turn on you and tell you you're acting out if turn, but I feel like Arin used to be a lot wiser than his years, and he had a lot of intelegent, thoughful opinions. Normally this would have been a point of self reflection, but now he's just trying to explain himself.

        I feel like if you got the full picture back then, he was this anarchic animator messing with the set dressing, but behind the scenes he was actually quite sensitive and insightful, and he thought a lot about his relationship with his peers and his fans. Now I see some YouTube Influencer™ desperately out of touch with his audience, trying to explain to everyone that he wasnt actually overreacting. Because he's CHANGED MANNNN.

        It's not even like he's trying to be fake woke or something, I feel like he's just built this castle of glass on a steep mountain slope that could fall over at any minute, and he understands this, and he's afraid of losing it if he says the wrong thing.

        I respected him when he was sincere.

            So Arin used to be edgy, now as his viewer base has hugely expanded he got woke. Well imagine my shock.

                I agree with almost anything in this vid you said, but not per se with some of the comments you used as examples. Besides that we shouldn't forget that we can have thick skin when it comes to one subject or situation and be like glass when it comes to specific things(for example family or passions etc). Yes Arin should wake up, but all of us should also give each other more advice with a friendly vibe then critique with hate.

                        ALSO, *THEORY:* When Arin agreed to the YouTube Red series, he dun goofed & didn't read the contract YouTube gave him (everyone knows Arin always skips text/dialog) he was surprised when the YouTube ModBots kicked in his door, did a mandatory brain-scan, filtered out all of his personality, humor & installed a PC content software chip in his brain to self-moderate his content.

                          Ppl should stop pretending criticism is a "mean" thing. The inability to deal with criticism is a weakness that should be overcome...and _sometimes_ criticism can lead to healthy growth, humility, etc...criticism regulates the ego, keeping it in check.
                          Blind praise is actually horribly unhealthy.

                                                      The things I miss by not caring about Twitter. Arin seems to be headed down the same beaten path as many internet hasbeens who "regret" the edgy jokes that started their careers, unknowingly or unwilling to understand that the people he's trying to appeal to now will never forgive him for those jokes, and he probably won't realize this until he turns around to find the fans he turned his back on in the first place have all left for other creators that respect them. Oh well, watching him blame "having to talk and play at the same time" for sucking at video games was fun for awhile there.

It unnecessarily adds fuel to the drama. It's not your "duty" to not take a side, but it surely doesn't help much when you do.

                                                                                        Overall just a dumb situation

                                                                                          For another point I dont think that he ment that he was personally attacked it's just him voicing his opinion as well as giving a reason for that opinion.

They think being out of touch with emotion is the best place to be and anyone whos offended in nothing more than a beta soyboy cuck. Its pathetic, really. People dont think that theres a place for sensitivity, personal growth, or kindness. They'll mock and hurl stones at him expressing his opinion, telling him he's out of touch, sold, out, and lost his roots. But thts because its a cesspool of people caught up in their arrested adolescence who dont know any better.

Well, theres some wisdom in that. You cant engage them because they lack the self awareness to change their ideas and realize that people besides themselves fucking matter. Words carry weight, but everyone seems fine to fling them around like flour.

Comedy is about letting things go and just laughing at how serious things have to be all the time. You used to know this...your younger self wasn't hateful or mean or offensive, he just hadn't been beaten down by all the political correctness and outrage and backlash from the world yet. Shake it off. All that stress and worrying makes you a dull boy.

And Pretending the 2009 edgey Trolling comedy doesn’t hurt people is wrong. Arin was just most definitely wrong in this specific case but he had points
