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.
didn't think of that, I'll ask the artist about it! the worst part is that the youtuber in question was informed about this and asked the artist to not mention their name anywhere because they're scared that alex will start targeting their videos, even people who play his game know he's a piece of shit
oh definitely, he's got many connections and his shows were a massive success but luckily the summer guy (the protector) is probably going to die soon considering his age (95 i think?) and then he'll have it more difficult to stay protected. however all those other creeps will protect each other and he's got so much money that it wouldn't be difficult for him to shut any allegations down. I really hope some of his past victims speak up, though I'm aware it's unlikely. the least we can do is keep talking about this and let it be known that he's a disgusting pedo
I honestly think it's that she was appealing to young weebs, I remember getting her videos recommended to me constantly when I was like 12 and watching anime on youtube, she didn't look like a doll but had this very specific weeaboo aesthetic, fair skin, big yes through makeup and contact lenses, lolita-esque clothes, I think that's it
Okay, so as much as I agree that Manaki abusing Venus is unlikely and seems like it's actually the other way around, it really bothers me what reasons people use to defend him. Having been in an abusive relationship myself I'd like to say: 1. Abusers don't act abusive all the time, usually when in public they can actually seem like the sweetest people you'd ever come across. 2. Just because someone helps you financially doesn't mean you owe them anything, this one I don't like in particular, because a lot of abusers use gifts/money to blackmail the victim into staying with them. 3. Many victims don't speak out about the abuse for years and might speak fondly of their abuser before revealing what they've been through. Now, this doesn't necessarily apply to Venus, as a lot of things she said can be debunked and since she almost 100% has bpd and is very unstable now, it's more likely than not that what she said in the video wasn't the truth, but PLEASE, don't use these particular things to defend Manaki, focus on the things like how it's not the first time Venus slandered him, how the claims of her supporting him because he quit his job can be debunked etc. (I always don't want to say that Manaki is 100% innocent either, I feel like they both could be abusive, however that's just speculation and I'd rather simply doubt everything instead of believing one version of the story, perhaps because I've been abused in the past and I'm biased lol)
I don't normally post here but I'm watching the stream and... that David guy randomly asked her to drink a bottle of tabasco? Venus said she'd do it for "something with two zeroes", not sure if joking or not but really? Why would you randomly ask her to do that? I'm starting to think this has to be some sort of kink
so, i'm a lurker here but something about this video just seems so... off to me? i'm not going to say that what she is saying is or isn't true, it's not for me to say, however I am 100% sure that she will now alter her behavior to seem more autistic, which we've already seen in that video. her speech patterns are different, more 'absent', she's suddenly avoiding eye contact which she's never done before, I can't recall at least and I'm convinced that she, regardless if she's actually on the spectrum or not, she's going to contribute to the neurodivergency/mental illness romantisation and engage in more quirky behaviors that are associated with that which is honestly extremely damaging, whether you're neurotypical or simply exaggerating your symptoms. If she is on the spectrum, and sadly most of us remainskeptical because of her previous lies, I am glad she spoke out about it however, I'm extremely disappointed, perhaps not surprised, that she's trying to create a new persona around it to possibly gain a bigger audience.
