Honestly, I think Shane doesn't fully understand that his actions might have consequences. I don't know if it's because he's gotten coddled by his fanbase for so many years or if he's just childish, but he doesn't really seem to understand what he actually did wrong whenever he gets called out or criticized for something stupid he's done.
I still don't know what to think about the cat situation, I think I'm more interested reading people's reasoning around the whole situation than whether he did it or not at this moment. I also think it's a ridiculously awful delivery, but like I said in a previous post he's not very good at telling non-scripted jokes and isn't very good at reading the air so he can sort of finish it off with a punchline or something to save the situation.
If this hadn't been on their anniversary (so obviously planned way ahead) I would have suspected this to be a distraction campaign lol But good on them, congrats! Both on the engagement and on that Shane managed to get out of his disgusting bath robe for five entire minutes
I honestly don't really know what to make of it. But my impression whenever he tries to deliver unscripted jokes he kinda comes off as a try-hard pre-teen trying to impress the older kids, so I think it was simply him trying to deliver his shock value humor but just...delivering it extremely, extremely poorly.
I don't have a lot of respect for this manchild anymore, and I am not going to defend his poor taste in jokes. He's been under so much fire for so long now that things will only keep on escalating, I don't think he's "cancelled" but he DEFINITELY needs to take an actual break from the internet. Go on a vacation in some other country without wifi for a while before he fucks his career up even more
Moomoo briefly came up as a subject between my friend and I a couple of days ago and my friend literally had to remind me that she ISN'T over 30. I am aware but my brain just won't register that fact whenever I see her pictures
While Youtube itself perhaps isn't a big deal for many, it's still his job. He is the one that set up the schedule himself, he should have put it up on a date he'd know he would handle or maybe not set one at all if he wasn't actually ready to follow up on it. Of course people are going to be frustrated when he keeps taking them for granted, right now it looks like he can fart out whatever video of varying quality he feels like and still get views anyway, and the delayed videos just makes it look like he doesn't even care, and then he has the guts to throw a tantrum on his hugbox twitter when people aren't praising the ground he walks on. It would have been an entirely different matter imo if he had another job on the side.
Maybe my choice of words are a bit harsh, but I simply think he is being childish and taking everything for granted. Haven't he been a popular and well-liked YTer this many people wouldn't give him the "uwu hes just a poor pure cinnamon bun baby" treatment for doing this.He is obviously struggling with mental health and should go on a longer hiatus, and if making videos helps him cope maybe he should do simple vlogs about how he's trying to recover instead of bigger project he barely can handle editing on time. He can make a video about how his mental illness has affected his every day life and relationships and how he's getting help, it would be something a lot of people would find relatable and probably watch, and possibly inspire his followers that are also struggling to get help.
Yes, ask someone that is still struggling with eating disorders to help someone that is an extreme case, especially one that does the face every time a leaf blows by him. Definitely the right person for this job. Logic.
