Context: TotalBiscuit was going through a whole ton of bureaucratic crap about moving to America to be with his wife and kid. He was separated from them for around a year, maybe more, and there didn't seem to be an end in sight.

He was seriously depressed, had been for a while. And the Internet being what it is, a lot of idiots spewed bile and hatred at him. So he broke and lashed out at them. He has since apologized for those comments, after explaining the situation.

Everyone makes mistakes. Has Donald Sterling apologized? No.

If saying something like that was worth hating then every single regular on this board is the worst sort of human.

I think TB's videos are hit or miss, but I hope he gets well.

Why? Because people cease being human when they get famous?

It's called public relations, look into it sometime.

And the TB Defense Force maintains its response time. I personally don't care for his videos since he sticks his foot in his mouth at every opportunity, even if it means getting cancer apparently.


Sorry. I hate the obsession some people have with "Gotcha!" moments. It's very, very easy (and extremely lazy) to criticize someone based on a couple out-of-context lines, or on some ancient (by Internet standards) quotation that has been disavowed, apologized for, and forgotten by most reasonable people.

Rather than propagate hatred based on some of those lines, I just offered context and insight into where the line was coming from. I demonstrated that this was not a standard type of comment that he makes; that this particular line actually had a story behind it.

I guess that makes me a member of TB's defense force?

How about the sympathy force? The humanist force? The acting like a normal human force? Should we all hope he dies or something? Even that pewdiepie doesn't deserve death, even though most of you think he's worse than Hitler.
