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.
He truly could have used it to his own advantage but, he had to keep the popular Korean opinion like usual and said he wouldn't really go anywhere and more than likely burned that bridge before it could really even be built in the first place.
Oh he would 100000% suck up to him now if he could have the chance (and I'm praying he never does) just to try and get a tiny bit more exposure.
He's definitely jealous lol Just saw Holland's Twitter and he's doing a shoot for Allure, I'm so proud of him. Eddy wishes he could be all that Holland is but, he's stuck with his stagnant Youtube channel, a kboo fanbase, only ever really to be wanted by kcon for obligatory guest apperances, and desperate Kpop companies that don't know any better but think they'll bring their group any kind of new fans. He tries to have the Korean opinion like you said, to try and convince his fans he's really an "InSiDeR" and he knows the industry when he doesn't know jackshit.
I think it's hilarious that when Holland debuted, Eddy was lowkey kinda shading him and being like "wellllll if you don't have brand endorsements and brand deals you really can't survive as an idol and I don't see him being gay and getting them" and here Holland is a year later thriving with photoshoots like Elle and what not. Suck it Eddy you penis nosed twat.
Didn't AX kick her out last year because of the drama and now they're letting her back in? AX is becoming a joke. I heard they're treating the Artists in the vendors hall like shit this year too. Someone needs to email the organizers about her but, I doubt they'll listen.
I can understand the Kotatsu part because I want one but.....god she looks like such a damn weeaboo with that sword. Do people really still buy katanas for the hell of it? I thought we left this back in 2010
Sanrio are ruthless when it comes to any sort of reproduction of their characters but, the logo she's using is so vague I doubt they would be able to do anything about it. She's an idiot but, she's not dumb enough to get herself another lawsuit lol. I'm pretty sure she intenionally designed it monochrome to be it's own while still having the correlation to Rillakuma.
I would argue over the line that Western fans don't bring in money for idols these days. Sure maybe back in the 2000's when fans were limited to only streaming they didn't bring in money but, these days with the boom of kpop in the west; Fans can buy lightsticks, albums, concert tickets, seasons greetings, concert dvds, photo books and other merch, and bring in a decent revenue. I would say in the grand scheme of things that western fans have alot less influence than Korean fans do and while companies see us as a form of profit in the end, the Korean fanbase is what matters most to them. As for Eddie. Boy, I can tell you that every single company/employer looks through your internet postings these days just looking for something that would put a bad stain on their rep if they were to associate with you. You're telling me that a guy that is openly gay in a still very homophobic and conservative country, openly sexuallizes male idols, body shames, thinks the more money you spend on an idol the bigger a fan you are, airs other's dirty laundry online when he gets upset with them, and other dumb shit, you're telling me that he honestly thinks companies wouldn't be wary of associating with him? Please, Eddy you aren't some insider or K-pop aficionado. Your 1 million teenage subs that mainly live in the US aren't going to be able to do diddly squat for any group in the long run if they don't have a sufficient Korean fanbase.
