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.
Another youtube idiot tried to justify Ian's bullshit by saying "Kim Kardashian made a sex tape and look at her now!!!" Once again, there is way too much to unpack there in why that is wrong. Anisa Jomha does not have the connections, clout, or support system to launch herself like Kim did. She's already had to lower her prices. Kim Kardashian had Kris Jenner, Ryan Seacrest, and Comcast behind her. Anisa has... Maureen Jomha, iDubbbz, and a few youtube cronies whose relevance is dying, like Fat Cunt and Ethan Klein. She couldn't even get Leafy.
I do kind of agree that Anisa is sad, regardless of how much I dislike her. To me, there is always something sad about someone making one shitty decision after another.
Anyways, what's annoying the fuck out of me in this whole discussion is how incel rhetoric has hijacked the Anisa discussion. Along with the idea of supporting sex work.
Anisa is not a real sex worker, nor does she support sex workers. This is a subscription based Instagram, because Anisa totally does, in fact, believe sex work is beneath her. Ian doesn't really support sex work, either. They made that clear during the Zoie Burgher incident. They're fucking grifters who are taking normally intelligent people for a ride.
Granted, I do wish that people would focus a bit more ire on Ian at this point. He's all in with Anisa and people treating him like a poor little lamb make me want to tear my hair out. Motherfucker made a career out of going on tirades against people, now made the unbelievably stupid decision to make that out of touch video, and has shown his entire ass.
That bit about "lacking real world experience" just drove me up the fucking wall, especially that he had the nerve to say that during a time where people are losing their fucking jobs, all to protect his ickle girlfriend's feelings as she makes tons of money on her OnlyFans. That is peak Youtube Millionaire Ivory Tower bullshit there. You can say it's "unfair" all you want, Ian, LIFE is unfair. That you think spending your entire goddamn adult life making money off of youtube means you have "real world experience" is laughable and insulting. Now, granted, Anisa destroyed way more employment opportunities with her Holocaust comments than she could with her Onlyfans, but neither are great for her future resume.
This shit is why I think Joji turned out the best out of the Cancer Crew. He was making no fucking money off Frank and actually had to have a real job. And live in the real world. In fifteen years, I promise you, George will be living a successful, conventional life with his music and shit, while Ian and Max and co are going to be desperate grifters with no real job opportunities because they spent their most formative years being idiots online and shouting slurs while picking up no concrete employment experience.
Unfortunately, there ARE now a lot of power misogynists in the Anisa discussion (not here, but generally). And while in a way I am glad to hear more people tearing into incels as a result of this, that it's being done in service of Anisa and Ian annoys the shit out of me. Especially with how eagerly people want to brush off the legitimate criticisms. Unfortunately, a lot of shitbags are using the points people have made to excuse their misogynist bullshit.
It is shedding light upon peoples' hypocrisy though, among that youtube clique. Misogyny and slut shaming is all fun and games until it affects them. Then it goes too far, of course. Everyone ignore Anisa's history of shitting on Feminists and Sex Workers, justifying the goddamn Holocaust, emotionally (and probably otherwise) cheating on her boyfriend, the hideous way she treated Laci Green, and using people outside her little youtube clique. Now we must take up the fight! RESPEKT WAHMEN!!!!
Except for the part where the Nazis are right wing. The far right, which she specifically referred to. But whatevs. Anisa and Maureen are apparently trying to discredit Creepshow Art. Even though she's not the only person who featured the Holocaust comments. Def Noodles did too. But they are not going after him. Interesting.
I thought he was good on Fallon, though he got drowned out a bit by the backup singers during the chorus. I am glad that he is not using a backing track like he did before. He was cute though I am not loving the new haircut. It's very Moe Howard.
He's got a billboard in Times Square and is #16 on the Billboard Hot 100. Sanctuary was in several Top Hits Spotify Playlists. He made almost no money off of Filthy Frank and it was fucking up his health. He's fine, success wise. Streaming means he can make a good living without being Lil Nas X or Billie Eilish. He doesn't seem the type to overspend like a lot of mildly successful morons in music. We have no way of knowing about his personal life beyond what he shares, but he is dramatically improving, music wise. He's on a good track right now, career wise. Also, he's almost 28. Of course he is acting differently than he did in college. That's how these things work.
Ian and Anisa's relationship reminds me of that quote from Ferris Bueller's Day Off:
"Cameron has never been in love - at least, nobody's ever been in love with him. If things don't change for him, he's gonna marry the first girl he lays, and she's gonna treat him like shit, because she will have given him what he has built up in his mind as the end-all, be-all of human existence. She won't respect him, 'cause you can't respect somebody who kisses your ass. It just doesn't work."
