You may noticed that all the blogs relating to the ongoing issues with our former blogger have been deleted, as have the Facebook posts about it. This was part of the terms that I agreed to in order to end this nonsense today. I explain it all in the breaking news live press conference this afternoon.
I’m not here to gloat because this isn’t a victory for me. It’s a victory for everyone. All of this was unhealthy. The lying, the screenshots, the hiding in Discord, the spreading of misinformation – nobody won with any of that. The ongoing existence of the Bristol Crew YouTube channel and all over online mediums wasn’t good for anyone, especially them. It wasn’t good for you as the reader because you come here for news and entertainment, not drama. I won’t express my personal opinions or feelings about parties involved in this because it doesn’t help any of us move forward. I’ve said what I’ve said.
As part of the agreement they had to take down everything – their YouTube, Facebook, Discord, Twitter, Pateron, and online stores. This was not some sort of attack on free speech either. This was a move that was in their best interest, and it was their choice to make. Yesterday things escalated like never before after a picture of my child was posted. At that point I was not going to back down. It wasn’t worth it for either party to continue, but it couldn’t end as long as these toxic platforms existed.
Anyone who I blocked because they chose to spread or believe lies misinformation, is welcomed back if they contact me and apologize. Granted, you made a grievous error, but there’s always room for forgiveness and growth. I look forward to moving on with you all, and I am thrilled that this nightmare is over. Back to blogging.
