Lou, I'm 21 now, but I still take selfies and watch Disney films.

I write songs and make YouTube videos. I tend to fall in love with a different Hollywood starlet on a very regular basis.

I do gigs and that: questionsforlou@gmail.com

AN OPEN LETTER TO ALEX DAY RE: HIS LATEST VIDEO "ANGER TREES".

Alex, you should be so ashamed of yourself for continuing to make videos. You’re doing absolutely nothing but causing harm to the people you hurt and to the people who (for some reason) continue to support you (despite you admitting several of the allegations in a Tumblr post that has since been…

Seeing as he had made videos after all those events happened. Why is it now all of a sudden different? Why should he not be able to make videos now? Who are you to tell him that he shouldn’t be making videos. Why is everyone acting like patron saints. Like they’ve never completely trashed or manipulated someone ever?

It’s like talking to a fucking brick wall with you lot.

The point is, no I’m not a saint that can dictate when he should be allowed to come back and make videos again.

But he certainly isn’t. You don’t just get to award yourself a second chance. Yes, that doea make it quite uncertain as to whether you ever will get a second chance (ooh poor Alex), but that’s the kind of uncertainty Alex will just have to deal with.

You’re supporting someone who admitted to manipulating women and has been accused of assaulting them in their sleep (and coincidentally chose not to address those allegations) and for what?

You’re not defending the vulnerable here and I suggest you sort that out.

Its his life and he can make his videos if he damn well pleases. Why should he censor himself for anyone?

Don’t act purposefully oblivious, you know exactly why he should censor himself. Because there are people he has hurt, that frankly are of more importance right now than you or I or him. If you’re too stupid to understand that then you’re part of the problem.

Look at the way with which you left #whiney in the tags, I wanted this to be thoughtful conversation but you went and shat all over that.

For what purpose do choose to blindly support someone who has been accused of such behavior a number of times ABOVE the victims?

Don’t reblog my post and add pathetic little tags that DONT help the situation one bit. You’re just proving how pathetic people can be by relentlessly choosing to support someone regardless of who they’ve hurt and what they’ve done.

AN OPEN LETTER TO ALEX DAY RE: HIS LATEST VIDEO “ANGER TREES”.

Alex, you should be so ashamed of yourself for continuing to make videos. You’re doing absolutely nothing but causing harm to the people you hurt and to the people who (for some reason) continue to support you (despite you admitting several of the allegations in a Tumblr post that has since been removed). How can you actually sit there and type out that description? How can you so confidently say that there’s anything positive to gain from this ridiculous metaphor, presumably relating to the anger you so brilliantly (sarcasm) predicted would be projected onto you as a result of this video? How can you (referring to your previous video) sit there and constantly reaffirm how little “internet fame” or “what people think of you” means to you, when it so obviously means enough to you that you can’t bare to leave this platform behind (despite so many people wanting you to)?

You are NOT in a position where it’s okay to bring that “nerimon” swagger back to your channel. You have a LONG way to go before it’s acceptable for you to sit in front of a camera and rant, swear or belittle your audience in the hilarious way you used to (I am aware that this video wasn’t exactly a full on nerimon-esque “take the piss out of everything” video, but you constantly drop subtle hints towards that persona, as if to try and subtly reintroduce it). 

It’s about something much more personal than entertainment, it’s about you blatantly disregarding the wishes of those you’ve affected, continuing to make videos regardless, and trying to back up your decisions with complex metaphors and the ridiculous idea that you’re doing more good than harm by continuing to make videos. When all you’re actually doing is convincing yourself (and others) that your place here is of some kind of importance by attaching yourself to a positive idea, but you are not needed. This community has other people to listen to about positivity, about anger, about ridiculous metaphors. You are not providing a much needed public service. You are providing a desperately needed self-service (yes, it could be argued that we as YouTubers are all self-serving, but we’re not hurting people as a result, you are).

You like to come across as though you’re above all this by acknowledging the (easily predictable) fact that people will respond negatively to this video, as if predicting that that would happen before it’s happened makes you better in some way, here’s some advice from someone who once looked up to you, stop putting your own need to revamp your YouTube career above the needs of those who you’ve affected and actually think for one second, that maybe this just isn’t the place for you any more, or at the VERY least, not yet.

Here’s a much more simple metaphor for you, continuing to run on a broken leg will only make it worse, but if you give it enough time, and you give it the proper care and attention, you MIGHT be lucky enough to be able to run on it again, although the leg will still be fragile, so you have to take extra care not to break it again. Everyone does deserve a second chance, but you don’t just get to decide when you get one, you have to earn one, and I just don’t think you have.

One day we’ll be in a Marvel movie, sitting there as something doesn’t feel right. and as the credits start to roll we’ll know what it is. It will flash up on screen and our hearts will break. “In loving memory of Stan Lee”. There was no cameo in that movie. And there never will be again.

Calm down there Satan.

I don’t know, CGI is getting pretty good these days. I’ll be surprised if Stan stops popping up in Marvel movies even long after he’s gone.
