We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
Wow, I've been pretty out of the Grumps-sphere for a pretty long time now, had no idea any of these things happened. That play seems really interesting, I'd been pretty suspect of Dan's dating life ever since he revealed his relationship with that younger woman, and also heard rumours about others in his circle hooking up with younger women and ghosting them. Has he addressed any of this?
Shane has threatened to sue Greg in the past, and has pretty much avoided even mentioning him for several years. They used to be friends, or at least friendly, with each other and had a falling out back in the day. Not sure if there's any juicy tea to it, other than Onision obviously taking it extremely personally and still holding that grudge to this day.
That dating profile lmao. To be fair he probably hasn't dated anyone beside his ex and don't know how adults flirt. "I need some thick booties for a music video" is also a really cringy fucking thing to put on a dating profile.
Ariana's use of face warping filters has always concerned me. It feels like sthe work she's got done in the past 2 or so years has been to resemble her edited face more. She honestly looks like a Bratz doll in that "cute face" filter.
Well, it seems Bobby's back for real on instagram, and judging by his pictures he's moved back home but still doing the rapper shit and got a piercing and new hair. He looks like a haggard e-boy, people in the comments are real worried about him.
Not sure who the girl is, maybe a new girlfriend? And of course he's still stanning XXX. The caption is a real hoot and a half.
The fact that neither Holly or Ross has come out and clarified their relationship status at the time and whether or not she cheated on him, speaks volumes to me. It would be very easy and save both of them a headache of they just told people what happened in their marriage. But considering Ross is a very private person and not at all eager to even touch this scandal with a ten feet pole, and Holyl is...... Holly, the chances of us ever knowing for sure why they divorced, and if Holly cheating with Jared was part of it, is slim to none.
Jesus christ. This is one of the most blatant ones yet lmao. Btw I decided to check in on Emma Hallberg, the girl who basically started this thread. Maybe it's just me but in some of her recent pics her skin looks darker, her lips bigger and kind of her nose as well? The fact that she's still got a huge following while not even trying to make a change to look more like her natural self...
I'm not a furry, but from what I hear fursuits are EXPENSIVE. I highly doubt she'll be able to afford one, unless it's really shitty. Also this is just more blatant proof that she's just throwing herself at any subculture and/or fetish to get more followers. The amount of weird fetish shit she has done only once or twice in her "career" is increasing by the week, it feels like.
If I'll put on my tin foil hat for a second... it might be part of their plan! Holly acts out and attacks people, which shields Jared from the shallowest critics, making him seem mature, calm and responsible and thus making people more likely to forgive him/move on! ...Buuut it's probably more likely just Holly being more anxious and unstable. She must be somewhat paranoid/obsessed with how people percieve her because based on her twitter likes it's obvious that she stalks any mentions of herself, Jared and now DCA, liking any tweet that sides with her. Jared is a manipulative piece of shit who will wield the small amount of goodwill he has now extremely carefully. Considering what Heidi has said about him apparently being angry at Holly whenever she was acting out towards her, I'd imagine he's probably not thrilled at her still victimizing herself. He seems to be the kind of manipulator who doesn't want people messing with his shit, especially since he's leaning on this good guy image.
I won't be watching the new D&D show, but I'm happy that both Chris Perkins and the rest of the cast are dismissing "concerns" from butthurt DCA fans from the get-go. At this point, even if the accusations about Jared (and Holly) were completely untrue and they were innocent, the controversy surrounding them makes them extremely bad PR. Wizards of the coast has had trouble in the past associating/hiring people that have been idiots, and their solution has always been burying it as quickly as possible and moving on as if nothing happened. This is the last we'll hear of DCA in any sort of official WoC capacity.
Well, I wasn't really saying that makeup should be a women only thing, just that men get overwhelmingly positive praise for doing it, in the makeup community at least, even if (almost especially if) they aren't as talented as the women who came before them. I guess I got kind of aggressive in putting that opinion out there. But I'm getting kind of off topic, sorry lol My point was mainly, the double standars re: gender are very clear in Shane being praised for dipping his toes in the million dollar makeup business pool. I have a very hard time seeing a female youtuber getting the same level of praise if she tried to do the same thing.
People acting like men like James Charles and Jeffree get shit on in the beauty industry like they both did't just walk in with a decently blended cut crease and people fell over themselves to praise them. Sure, they both have some talent, but if you look at women who've been doing makeup online for literal decades, NONE of them are as successful or rich as Jeff or James, despite doing it for longer and being both better MUAs and better people. Sure, straight men hate gay men who wear makeup, but they also hate women who wear too much or too little makeup so I'm kidn of over dudes crying about how oppressed they are for wearing highlighter on their insta, and then getting paid thousand of dollars for it. The exact thing is happening now with Shane. Lele Pons released some bullshit palette and people IMMEDIATELY shit on her and trashed her for doing a makeup brand deal despite her not being known for wearing makeup at all. Shane does the exact same thing, with even less makeup experience, and people call him revolutionary and sooo brave etc. I'm not defending Lele at all to be clear lol, but I think if people are going to criticize her and whatever brand she collaborated with, Shane should also receive some of that same critique.
Yeah, I'm only laying it out there because of Youtube being very opposed to bad PR, nothing more. Him losing even just one of his channels would be a HUGE blow to his ego, and his platform. Greg is nothing without his audience, that's why he's taking this patreon thing so hard. Now just imagine how he would react if he los his main channel. Deplatforming is the only thing (aside from legal consequences) that terrifies him because his audience is his only weapon against public opinion killing his career off once and for all.
While I absolutely sympathize with Shane and his struggles with mental illness, at this point he's made it very clear that he's not working on himself beyond making his wallet fatter. He must've entered a depression pretty hard sometime around 2016-2017, when he was just stuck in a worthless content loop and only making those shitty food videos. At this point he also started gaining weight and probably relapsed in his ED. And his hygiene probably went to shit here too. Then he started making his "documentaries" and had a huge rise in popularity, relevance and importance on youtube. THIS should have been the point where he took himself to task and put in some real effort to work on his mental health. But money seems more important to him so instead he started churning out "docuseries" that would garner him lots of attention and make him a lot of fucking money. Like, mental health awareness is great and all, but it's 2019. We are all aware that people can feel like shit due to a variety of reasons. Awareness means nothing if you're not willing to get help. Shane has the resources and an incredibly supportive family and fanbase on his side. He can afford to start working on himself before raking in a couple million dollars from a palette that he himself will probably never use.
