Re: *Prompter Thread* (NO Personal Attacks, Trolling, breaking 52 USC 30121 OR 2 USC

People who shouldn't have been famous in the first place don't want to deal with the hardships of being famous.

It's also slightly ironic since the extremely little I know about this woman is that she constantly put out videos shitting on other people.

A little karma comes her way and she cries and bounces. Good.

    Only looked this up because I found it hard to believe this loser popularized anything, and seems I was right. "Thanks, Obama" was around before her.

    She moved up quick. Went from a go go dancer in Boston clubs to barstool to one of the first and biggest YouTube stars.

    I hit on her at the Avalon ballroom in Boston forever ago lol. She ignored me, I guess hitting on the professional dancer at a club wasn’t a very original move

    Another record day in Florida. 9,636 new cases.

    Is the whole state just making out with each other at this point?

    Another record number of tests in Florida too. Record positives were expected.

    But that positive rate isn’t going to budge without a mask mandate.

    There is a “restore sanity” rally in Boston today organized by the “straight pride” parade organizers.


    What a bunch of fucking clowns, they keep trying to have these things and almost nobody shows up.

    So the straight pride parade people are organizing a thing, and it's raining.

    It is literally going to rain on the straight pride parade.

    All of those entitled "Re-Open" cunts sure do love proving how braindead they truly are. It's downright embarrassing, but not the least bit surprising.

    Gotta just test high risk people. All these young people finding out they have it is NO BIG DEAL! Or I should say...it may be a big deal but the bigger deal is that it is destroying our economy because people are confused that it's young and healthy people getting this! It isn't like Italy or new York. Nobody is dying! More are dying because the economy is shutting down!

    I think I did it right. Trying to get the talking points down. It's getting harder and harder to channel the republican voice.

    Liberals - marching the streets chanting "I can't breathe" in support of their fellow man and in protest of oppression and police brutality

    Conservatives - throwing hissy fits and banshee screaming "I can't breathe" when told they need to wear a mask when in public inside because they can't be bothered to care about their fellow man and/or be told what to do

    Yup, perfectly sums up the current political landscape.

    I mentioned yesterday but her mom was a professor (or still is, I think) at UofR where I did b-school.

    She would talk about her daughter if people asked, but seemed to want to keep that part of her life separate from her teaching. She was pretty good in lectures. For an extremely international finance program, she kept the attention pretty well. Guess that's where her daughter got it from.

    “Better dead than red!” they say as the reds are literally contract killing their countrymen and their president turns a blind eye.

    Blue, no matter who, on every single line. November, and then January, cannot come quick enough.

    Re: *Prompter Thread* (NO Personal Attacks, Trolling, breaking 52 USC 30121 OR 2 USC

    Okay, I am going to toss in my opinions on Jenna Marbles. I have followed her channel since the beginning. I went to Suffolk University the same time as her in Boston Mass and met her before she did the youtube channel. I didn't know her that well, but I had friends that were friends with her.

    Her channel was started on comedy for day-to-day life as a early 20 something year-old. It was a lot of shock value comedy that was popular at the time. Furthermore, it was also the wild west of youtube when she started. Her content was honestly tame compared to a lot of youtube at the time.

    This does not excuse some of the content she put out there. It obviously didn't age well. I found her early stuff really funny when it came out, but I don't find a lot of it funny now in my 30's. That is called growing up and maturing. The interesting thing is this; Jenna's content also grew and matured. It is really easy to sit here, read the story of her cancelling her channel call her names and judge her. However, she grew a lot as a content provider and a person over the past 10 + years.

    Her channel is nothing like it used to be and that is something she can be proud of. She decided to get ahead of this and privatize a lot of those older offensive videos because 1) she realized that the times we are in are about owning it and taking down old material that is unacceptable in today's world, 2) listened, learned and grew a lot as a person to understand why that content should no longer be up and was wrong to make in the first place and 3) she is not that person any more.

    Anyone who has actual knowledge of her and her channel knows all of those key factors. It has been sad to see someone take ownership of her mistakes in her life and get so harshly judged and torn apart all over the internet and media. That is the exact wrong approach to progress. If people can't be given some ability to learn and become better people, there is absolutely zero point to everything we are all working for with this movement. That fact it totally lost on some people.

    So tired of the nameless, faceless attacks of "Cancel Culture". Every single one of these people that think they are doing some service should live in glass houses, but oh wait, they are just a stupid avatar with no accountability whatsoever. And I can guaranfuckingtee most of them if they had things they said on tape 10-20 years ago, they would regret it wholeheartedly.

    He who is without sin may cast the first stone. Pathetic the internet is.

    It is definitely important to note the above in that she is not getting "cancelled." She is taking ownership herself and acknowledging that she made mistakes with her older content. This is exactly what we should all want from people. Showing growth and taking responsibility for past actions while also showing that you can grow as a person.

    I don't believe she will be gone forever, but I think she is making the right move by taking a step away to allow people who need the platform more than her right now the ability to use it. By taking this step, she added even more light to the situation.

    This is a bad take but I am not surprised by it. It is the easier conclusion to take. It is important that you hold yourself to the same standards you are quick to hold others to. You judged this person harshly while simultaneously admitting you know little about her. Do you even see what is wrong with that, or how that is a double standard?

    I am not trying to single you out, but your posts are way overly harsh to someone you clearly don't no much about. Try to remember that this is someone who is only human and unlike so many other youtubers or social media stars, she has shown tremendous growth in her maturity over the years and is willing to take responsibility for her past actions. That is a huge win that is abnormal in today's world.

    This is pretty funny. I heard she was definitely a part girl. The friends I had that knew her definitely knew her because they were more into the part/club scene than I was. I was more of a house party or dive bar kind of guy in College.

    Look, yeah Donald hasn’t done anything about Russia but he was busy defending himself from an unprecedented liberal witch hunt impeachment. If you dems didn’t impeach him he would’ve been able to deal with it.

    re: blackface, I think 99% of people who have done it meant no offense and were uneducated on the racist history of it. As long as they educate themselves and change, I don't see the issue.

    Okay, I am going to toss in my opinions on Jenna Marbles. I have followed her channel since the beginning. I went to Suffolk University the same time as her in Boston Mass and met her before she did the youtube channel. I didn't know her that well, but I had friends that were friends with her.

    Her channel was started on comedy for day-to-day life as a early 20 something year-old. It was a lot of shock value comedy that was popular at the time. Furthermore, it was also the wild west of youtube when she started. Her content was honestly tame compared to a lot of youtube at the time.

    This does not excuse some of the content she put out there. It obviously didn't age well. I found her early stuff really funny when it came out, but I don't find a lot of it funny now in my 30's. That is called growing up and maturing. The interesting thing is this; Jenna's content also grew and matured. It is really easy to sit here, read the story of her cancelling her channel call her names and judge her. However, she grew a lot as a content provider and a person over the past 10 + years.

    Her channel is nothing like it used to be and that is something she can be proud of. She decided to get ahead of this and privatize a lot of those older offensive videos because 1) she realized that the times we are in are about owning it and taking down old material that is unacceptable in today's world, 2) listened, learned and grew a lot as a person to understand why that content should no longer be up and was wrong to make in the first place and 3) she is not that person any more.

    Anyone who has actual knowledge of her and her channel knows all of those key factors. It has been sad to see someone take ownership of her mistakes in her life and get so harshly judged and torn apart all over the internet and media. That is the exact wrong approach to progress. If people can't be given some ability to learn and become better people, there is absolutely zero point to everything we are all working for with this movement. That fact it totally lost on some people.







    It is definitely important to note the above in that she is not getting "cancelled." She is taking ownership herself and acknowledging that she made mistakes with her older content. This is exactly what we should all want from people. Showing growth and taking responsibility for past actions while also showing that you can grow as a person.

    I don't believe she will be gone forever, but I think she is making the right move by taking a step away to allow people who need the platform more than her right now the ability to use it. By taking this step, she added even more light to the situation.



    This is a bad take but I am not surprised by it. It is the easier conclusion to take. It is important that you hold yourself to the same standards you are quick to hold others to. You judged this person harshly while simultaneously admitting you know little about her. Do you even see what is wrong with that, or how that is a double standard?



    I am not trying to single you out, but your posts are way overly harsh to someone you clearly don't no much about. Try to remember that this is someone who is only human and unlike so many other youtubers or social media stars, she has shown tremendous growth in her maturity over the years and is willing to take responsibility for her past actions. That is a huge win that is abnormal in today's world.

    In 4th grade I did a report on Bill Cosby and asked if I could paint myself black and was very emphatically told no. I don’t think it was explained to me why

    Done. I never have and never will make youtube videos making fun of overweight people or asians or in blackface or etc etc etc. Pretty easy.

    If she evolved, good for her. She didn't have to cancel herself, she could have made better videos that redeemed her at her core.
