    Thanks bowblax your videos have been great. A full recap of this drama is now archived thanks to your work. As an old fan of the new grounds community I've been watching their content since 2010 and lately (the last 5 years) it's been sad watching airn change and reject his former peers, this drama was the boiling point to something that has been heating up under the surface for awhile now. Airn definitely deserves criticism off this as he attempts to hide from it as of late, people are saying this drama is trivial and pathetic and too an outsider looking in I can see why they'd think this, all I can say is that airn has burnt bridges and has rejected the ones close to him because they don't fit his new agenda, the criticism from fans and other creators isn't about the pelo video it's about everything he's done these last few years that he's avoided criticism for through his echo chamber.

      Arin is a very unattractive man. And as an unattractive man he has to virtue signal in order to win the favor and validation of women - including his spiteful, off-putting, obnoxious girlfriend. It's the only way. Hence why he is doing it. He desperately wants to be liked by the opposite gender. And no one could ever like him because of his visual appearance. So he has to compensate for it with political correctness and faux feminism.

      The video is alright but it's just Twitter screenshots. Kiwifarms shows a lot more info. Tom Fulp also made several posts in a thread about the whole situation asking people not to attack Egoraptor because it will set a bad example on Newgrounds. Both of them had a talk and they're still in good terms. But I can totally understand everyone's frustrations because Egoraptor was treating Newgrounds like it's /b/. Also gotta love the Game Grumps stans defending Arin's past but would gladly ruin Max G's or Pewdiepie's career for their past.

                    No offense bro but at a certain point in your video you were just reading out Tweets. I'd like to hear more about your take on this when you make videos like these.

                      shitty drama over and over, it's not about Arin, he can be whoever he wants, if a bunch of people are just shitting on him for trivial reasons like this, i can easily see why it's taken its toll on him over time, its not about him having thck or thin skin, its about all these whiny little pricks making a huge deal out of everything and ANYTHING he does, just because they cant grow a pair and admit they're all butthurt because Arin's changed and he's not the same he used to be TEN FUCKING YEARS AGO, get over it people for fucks sakes, leave him be, he got the apology from sr pelo, and he was fine after that, he just felt he had to say something and he did, that SHOULD be the end of it, but because of these childish man babies who can't get over that that Arin's Changed just won't grow a pair, theyll keep trolling him. get over it guys, since when are shitty little troll kids' voices supposed to be taken for anything over Arins?? fuck you all if you're part of this problem, this is how you kill a legit persons will to put themselves out there. trollers gonna troll, if Arin can't handle that anymore then he's clearly done with dealing with the internet. still doesn't mean you should give it applause, if that's what he wants, thats his life, you guys are like shitty underpaid paparazzi about to lose their jobs trying to brew a story.

                        Look at all these dislikes. And this isn’t even Bowblax’s opinion, he’s literally just recounting what happened. GG stans can’t even take actual facts if they’re critical of their lord

                            Arin's primary issue is that he genuinely believes that neither he, nor anyone else, should take chances with jokes. But considering the primary element of jokes is that they're surprising (unless you actually think jokes are funnier the second time around), there's always the risk when trying something new.

                            But instead of developing a community where everyone accepts that not all jokes are going to land - which is still a positive community - he doesn't want anyone to take those risks. And that could be fine, but he somehow managed to make even that toxic, where somebody was trying to get Arin to pass on an apology for them annoying Ross by meming at him, and Instead of being understanding - which you'd think would be the ultimate point - he basically said it's not good enough. To someone apologizing. I don't know how arin feels about that, but that's not a community I'd want to be part of, where you get excommunicated for attempts at humor. But hey, this is coming from someone who likes making jokes, so that would probably be alien to Arin.

                              "They're let's plays, but ok let's call them shows." ... Yeah let's play's like the live shows, the ten minute power hour, his animations, and good game.

                              He can't call them "Shows". That would encompass all of them. That would be illegal. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and just assume you're attempting satire. Because you can't be wrong if it's satire.

                                                  This would have never been said if Dan wasn't such a SJW competitionist and he wasn't such an influence to ego.
                                                  Old Ego would genuinely of not cared in my most honest opinion even if Dan did have such an impact on him.

                                                        Never was a part of the whole NewGrounds thing... but from what I understand from the video, it's basically this.
                                                        >So, Pelo goes ahead and makes a video criticizing other animators on their animations using somewhat crude humor... not bad by any means, but enough to prove a point that they were making fun of the other animators. So, Arin being a previous animator on NewGrounds comes up and says that being made fun of doesn't help anybody and it sucks. Then, suddenly the entire community comes in and says how Pelo did nothing wrong and that Arin shouldn't have said anything because he owes his popularity to NewGrounds... so after being called out that Arin also used to have a very crude and unruly sense of humor he goes ahead and writes out an explanation on where he currently is and how he looks back on those times. Saying how he's not the same anymore and how he wants to be better than what he used to be...... people apparently didn't like that for some reason and just continued on. Now pointing their anger at how Arin apparently doesn't like the way he used to be when he was a part of NewGrounds.

                                                        Okay, so... perhaps I didn't quite get the whole picture, but from what I can tell I don't exactly see what Arin did wrong? He identified humor that to him appeared just be mean and overall insensitive to others, said how he didn't like that, is ranted at by others for thinking it's bad, proceeds to write how he wants to be better and be beyond this type of humor, and is for some reason still receiving flack for trying to improve beyond his past self and trying to separate from NewGrounds... In all of this, Pelo seems like a pretty cool person though.

                                                          ...He does more than just Lets Plays. He's in a band with Danny (Starbomb), and their channel also has little segments on it that could be considered shows.

                                                          I don't get why so many people are pissed over this, or why you're acting like this is a drama gold mine. It's literally a guy who sucks at communicating and grew out of his old sense of humor. It happens, people change.

                                                          I used to watch things that now, who I am today, I find annoying and just not funny. Life is subjective.

                                                          Arin thinks the video was mean. Okay. Why didn't people just, I dunno...ignore him?

                                                          It's almost like people are using what spotlight Starbomb and Game Grumps gave him to ride his coat tails into public awareness.

                                                          That's likely not the case. But as a fellow person who has terrible people skills, I get what Arin meant with the initial reaction.

                                                          You blowing it out of proportion like it's PDP being a racist asshat is just sad.

It’s a drama commentary channel. It’s like making a documentary, you wanna remain unbiased so people focus on the actual story instead of your take on it

Honestly seems like kinda of a bipolar thing to me, but it’s best not to assume. But especially on Twitter of all places? What a fkn cesspool
