Hey fam – if you’d like to support Turtleboy and what we do here, feel free to hit the donate button at the top. We basically have to run this site like a Bernie Sanders campaign now since we’ve been blacklisted by Google and Facebook, due to the fact that rabid SJWs keep reporting our posts. Getting blacklisted by Google is a death sentence for most websites, since it’s much harder to monetize. And we all know the damage Facebook has done. We’re never going to stop fighting for free speech, but in the meantime the best way for turtle riders to fight back is to donate to the cause. Without you people none of this is possible. We love you all.
This story from The Atlantic is everything that is wrong with Internet outrage culture today:
Over the past year, Jimmy, a 20-year-old YouTuber known as “MrBeast” who chooses not to reveal his last name in his videos, has gone repeatedly viral for giving away massive amounts of cash. Known to many in the community as “YouTube’s biggest philanthropist,” to date, he has donated more than $500,000 to people including an Uber driver, waitress, random people in parking lots, Twitchstreamers, and homeless people in his North Carolina neighborhood—all of which has been captured on his vlog.
Just to review. A twenty year old somehow finds a way to make a living giving away money on viral Youtube videos and monetizing it. His entire business model revolves around charity. But obviously this kind of story would not get hits on a far left site like The Atlantic. So this really had nothing to do with the reason a rabid SJW Taylor Lorenz was writing it.
She wanted to find a way to take this positive story and turn it into a negative. So she did what “journalists” always do now – go through someone’s Twitter history until they find something “offensive” they tweeted before they were famous….
But what many people might consider not so nice are the homophobic jokes Jimmy has made on his YouTube channel or his habit of calling people “fags” on Twitter. Jimmy regularly uses the notion of being gay as a punchline and treats the word like a slur, hurling it at people or things he’s attempting to diss. “Windows is gay,” he tweeted regarding his frustration using the operating system in December 2015. More recently, in December 2016, he responded to a tweet saying “I don’t have a printer fag.” Just this past December, in 2017, he replied to another person on Twitter, “STFU fag.”
So then naturally the REAL story here was that a couple years ago he called one of his buddies a fag and said that Windows is gay.
Stop the ride. I want off.
Newsflash – Windows is gay as shit. That’s just a scientific fact.
The priorities of these “journalists” never ceases to amaze me:
“But what many people might consider not so nice are the homophobic joke Jimmy has made on his YouTube channel.”’
I was so expecting some raunchy gay jokes when I saw that one. Instead I got “windows is gay,” and “I don’t have a printer fag.” From a 17 year old. The horror!!
Though Jimmy has stated on Twitter that he’s not gay, he jokes about the possibility often. In a video from last October titled “Giving $10,000 To Comments On This Video,” Jimmy wears a shirt emblazoned with the words, “I’m not gay, but $20 is $20.” In another, he stands in front of a pink Post-It note with the word “Gay” on it and an arrow pointing right towards him. His Twitter biocurrently reads, “just because I’m gai doesn’t mean I’m gay.”
Oh for fucks sake. Quit being so gay. I’m sorry, words are words. I call people gay all the time. Doesn’t mean I hate gay people. Just means they’re acting gay. And $20 is $20. That’s just FACKS!
While some of his comments may seem par-for-the course for an unaware teen boy, many of his statements would be offensive regardless of his personal sexuality. When reached by phone on Thursday and given the opportunity to put his comments in context, Jimmy showed no regret or remorse.
“Many of his statements would be offensive.”
That says it all. Nothing matters less than what you find offensive. It really doesn’t matter. While you’re looking through old tweets, trying to be offended by something, this 20 year old entrepreneur is handing out millions of dollars to people in need. The fact that you, a clickbaiting SJW journalist, thinks you have some sort of moral superiority over him because he called Windows gay, is laugh out loud funny.
It gets worse….
“I’m not offensive toward anyone,” he said. “I’m not offensive in the slightest bit in anything I do. I’m just going to ignore it. I don’t think anyone cares about this stuff.” He then asked if The Atlantic could simply run a positive article about him, not including his use of slurs.
When informed that this was not an option, he suggested that he respond to a list of questions in writing over email, saying, “Wouldn’t it be easier if I just filled out these answers instead of saying this?” Finally, he said “I’m just a dumb kid that makes YouTube videos and I don’t like doing interviews,” before cutting the call short and hanging up.
Minutes after the call ended, Jimmy deleted all tweets using the word “fag” from his Twitter account.
This poor kid. He basically begged them not to use their platform to paint him as a homophobe. Instead of honoring that they printed his begging and were like, “nah, we need the clicks.”
Luckily the Internet murdered this hack, but instead of just admitting how garbage her article was, she doubled down….
“I don’t think Jimmy is a homophobe.”
Then why the fuck would you write this article moron? That says it all doesn’t it? She doesn’t actually believe he’s homophobic. Because lots of people use the word gay and call their buddies fags. You know that. I know that. She knows that. But she wrote the article anyway because journalism is dead and clickbait bullshit is alive and well.
