It's prolly none of of business, and I'm sorry to intrude if that's true, but what happened to get you so upset at him? I mean, him in particular to get you to react to his praise that way. I mean I see him do a lot of things (swear and curse, disrespect Christ) but a ton of youtubers do, so what's so special about him right now? Please answer this privately.
You are missing something! His praise tweet was directly in reply to me calling him out after he RTed and lol’d at a tweet comparing a historical photo of a lynchmob victim to present day social justice (those tweets are deleted now). He’s also been talking a lot about how it’s okay to casually use slurs and it’s NOT okay to tell anyone not to use those slurs because free speech. I’m not a fan of his, was not ever a friend of his, and he’s just one dude, but I am tired of this creator mentality that every little word that comes out of your lips must be defended and never apologized for and that anyone who’s upset by it must be faking!!! Boo to that. If I am ever being bigoted in some way, please know that I am extremely interested in hearing why and correcting my behavior, because the paranoia about the world getting “too PC” is some decades old bullshit for cranky uncles nobody likes.
Neil’s alright by me.
