Good fucking Jesus Ryan, you stupid fuck. YOU WERE IN THE GOD DAMN CLEAR!!! Not that it bothers me that much beyond the general annoyance of people not practicing common sense. He just re-opened the target range and now everyone is baying for blood yet again. So there is a win for us.

Anybody read about the new victim under the victims of ryan haywood Twitter account? It's hard to read... like I'm sick to my stomach.

*edit: this individual, who shared their story to the Twitter account back in October (indicated in the dms), recently gave permission for the Twitter account to share their story. It was also shared to reddit in r/roosterteeth

**edit #2: TW for rape

I could understand a ban if I were to go there with my same name and say "I represent Kiwi Farms", etc. and then harass Ryan on the regular, but I wasn't aware that writing to the admins of a social site and saying "watch out for this guy, he's a verified sex predator and is apparently still at it" would constitute getting involved with the lolcows. My interest wasn't to waste my time messing with him, but to let the Twitch people know his history and be done with it.

I guess I can see how some would construe it that way but I myself wouldn't, as I have zero interest in interacting with Ryan or the site beyond that. Regardless, it didn't happen so there's nothing I can do anyway. If wanting to do it is report-worthy I didn't know, I'd accept the consequences.

Every time more news breaks on this story the more I realize I actively dislike all of the people involved. Twitter girls, the RT/AH staff, and Ryan. Oh Ryan. You idiot.

I know I'm getting into armchair diagnosis here, but I genuinely do think he may have narcissism. This behavior is baffling - his delusional sense of self-importance and entitlement are transparent, and by posting this message, it is clear that he really was just biding his time until he felt it had been long enough for him to come back and keep doing exactly what he'd been doing before.

As I've previously mentioned, he sincerely doesn't seem to understand that this entire situation is his fault and that there is no ethical or PRACTICAL way for him to return to his career. No one in this field is ever going to hire him again, and he'll be lucky if he gets hired in a decent non-public field given the fact that he keeps running his mouth. It would be depressing to watch him ruin his own life so thoroughly if he wasn't such a piece of shit.

I know we've disagreed before about what's going on in Ryan's head but I'm 100% with you on this one. It was disappointing, but not surprising, to me to read the new message and see that, if nothing else, he couldn't take responsibility at all. Now "I'm working to improve myself and not hurt anyone else ever again, and I deeply regret what I did" doesn't fix things by a long shot, but his reframing of the situation as "I'm seeing three specialists for my mental health :(" is so fucking slimy it'd be funny if it weren't so horrible. We saw about as much with his other texts about how bad his life was getting, and not having an iota of self-awareness. If I wanted to psychoanalyze further, I think he doesn't want to do it because he feels like he already hit rock bottom by being exposed and making his first statement where he generically apologized to "anyone [he's] hurt". Any more than that is excessive in his eyes.

What really got to me is that if he's telling the truth, his family's still with him. I'd have no problem with him making a fucking ass of himself on his own, but knowing how clumsily the internet exacts its justice I'm foreseeing consequences for that family, which did nothing wrong and - whether it marks them as naive or very optimistic (or both) - wants to stay together. At the very least it means their dad isn't 100% committed to getting better, so it bodes poorly for them.

Point being, my idea of justice is that Ryan stays the fuck off the internet forever. That's enough for me. If his family thinks it better for them to be together, I'd like that to work out. But if Ryan's sabotaging it... it honestly just strikes me as more tragic than anything else that he can't stay away from the very place where he fucked up.

It's very strange to me that he would return to the scene of alleged crimes.

It is also strange that he mentions his wardrobe on that twitch message sent out a day or two ago. Like... who cares?

I truly hope that his wife does what's best, but who am I to really say what is best for whatever the story truly is?

Does anyone happen to know anything about a new address? (I do NOT want it posted. Just wondering if there is validity to a claim.) Curious because it might mean he did move out, perhaps, at very least.

Well, these screenshots are absolutely a waste of time. Just turn on your older phone and send the photos if you still have them you moron.

EDIT: Just saw this get uploaded. Looks like RT and their subsidiaries are really just dying a slow painful death.


TL;DW: Everyone at Inside Gaming is being moved to other RT departments, with Brian Gaar being the only one left to how the weekend round-up, a shitty one-off weekend video selectively choosing boring gaming news. Apparently the rest are going to work for FunHaus and other RoosterTeeth departments.

Would you like to sign my petition?
I just want him to come back for one last stream and drop a bunch of shit about RT then disappear.

"Fiona isn't black, Burnie Burns is the devil, and Rooster Teeth is lying about Monty Oum's death"

I'll still tune in for the next few weeks, just in case something comes out, same as I did for Ray, Bruce and Lawrence.
Frankly I don't care if he gets deplatformed because I'm not a moralfag and I'm only in this for the sake of drama and something to laugh at and if gets dropped by Twitch then there's less milk to be had.

So ... at the risk of earning many life-threatening "negative" stickers, I have to ask. Did he actually do something on Twitch that violates site rules that warrants a ban from Twitch, or is this just bog-standard "cancel culture" at work demanding his total destruction and removal from modern society with no possibility of redemption or parole? Because the latter is something SJW's love to do and we typically mock such behavior, no?

Seems to me losing his job, probably losing his wife/family and being publicly humiliated is punishment enough, but I guess he's not done giving up pounds of flesh to the mob.

It’s a cancel.

Two things irk me about this:
a) It lasted 1.5 hours? Not even porn stars last that long. How would a 37-40 year old out of shape guy?
b) And more importantly: HER FATHER KNEW and didn't go to the police? Like he knew after the fact, when DNA might've still been inside of her, and didn't call the cops on internet-funny-man? Just took screenshots of his daughter's tweets and pictures of her bruises and then... nothing?

Also there is 0 proof for this, so this might be another one for the make-believe pile. This annoys me because this dude is trash as it is, but this makes him go from a groomer that goes too hard and disrespects his victims' wishes to straight up brutal rapist. Accusations like that make it harder for other grooming victims to be taken seriously, which is the worst thing about shit like that.

I am not saying it didn't happen either, just... man, it is so really hard to believe. Not because I think Ryan isn't capable, but because her story doesn't sound plausible.

Also why would you be okay with coming out to the internet, but not the police? At that point the "I am so ashamed" thing doesn't even work anymore. Just... I know this shit is complicated as all hell, and I know victims go through a lot of trauma and their actions might not make sense, but she involved her father. I just dunno, man.

As far as I know, he was using money from his channel to pay for hotel rooms/travel expenses for some of the people he banged. If he used the platform as a financial means to get nasty with underaged girls, that could be used as grounds for a ban, but that also requires, y’know. Hard proof. I vaguely remember seeing paypal receipts posted here about it, but 1) this fucking thread is almost 300 pages long 2) there’s been too many people to keep track of and it’s impossible for me to recall who was underaged vs who was just easily manipulated and 3) it’s been a few months, so I might be misremembering everything entirely.

But even if there was a direct link of twitch blood money fueling his sexual conquests of teenagers, it’s a toss up if the platform will do anything about it, because at the end of the day it’s still an Amazon company and we all know Jeff Bezos didn’t get rich by doing what’s morally correct or just. If Ryan’s account is profitable—allegedly, people are still giving him subs and shit even tho he hasn’t been streaming—then it’s a very high possibility that the issue will be put on the back burner or just swept under the rug entirely.

He definitely misappropriated his Twitch money to fund these trysts - we have multiple screenshots and corroboration from his former mods which state that the money he had been saying all along went to his family/livelihood was actually going to coercing e-girls. He also definitely had a financial hold over at least one of them (Katie B), meaning they were struggling to make ends meet and cutting ties with him would've meant losing a reliable source of extra cash. Not necessarily illegal, but it is one way that he misused his income from Twitch and might be borderline enough to be ban-worthy.

On top of that, quite a few of the girls he roped into his e-harem were gained through Twitch - specifically, the more direct "streamer to fan" interface there made it significantly easier for him to have his pick of the litter, which he did, and would not have been able to do had he not been using Twitch. His Discord server, the "Madhouse," also consisted primarily of Twitch-based fans who were much more dedicated to him specifically instead of RT or AH as a whole. And we know that at least two girls (Kayla and Katie) were met and hooked through this server, in part due to Ryan not monitoring the community properly and allowing them to be very severely harassed by other users; he was able to isolate them and convince them to talk only to him in this way, which enabled him to start the manipulation process he'd been doing (convincing mentally ill people that they're best friends or in love or whatever while telling all the other mods and users that the girls were "crazy" so they'd never believe any word against him).

Essentially, he set the community up in such a way that he could keep running through all of the girls there like a buffet, and was really only able to do so because of the direct relationship he had with quite a few of them due to how personal his Twitch streams were. Although many of the girls were met and hooked in other ways, I think a sizable chunk of them were frequent fans of his Twitch streams and he was able to use that to his advantage in keeping the girls separate from one another and keeping them quiet about what was happening.

So, to get back to your question: Did he violate any site rule? Probably not; I doubt Twitch has any protections in place for a situation like this. But does that really matter in this context? Not really. As a point of comparison, the streamer Vinesauce just got a suspension not long ago for a split second shot of boobs in a game he was playing, which weren't even fully visible due to how quickly he looked away, and in spite of the fact that Twitch has allowed MUCH more graphic content on their site. So Twitch themselves is playing fast and loose with the rules. By comparison, this situation of a grown man using his Twitch account for his e-harem manipulation is obviously worse, and in my opinion, definitely warrants a ban to avoid him being able to do the same thing again in the future.
 
It’s obvious he (Ryan) misses the “spotlight” of his old job.
That’s why he posted the new note to Twitch.
Checking in w/ his remaining “fans” & it’s obvious he has a few. Probably a small group of rapey dudes who have no probs w/ his grossness. who’ve sent him “solidarity” emails, most likely. Seems like he is addressing them, in his Twitch message.
I’m curious about real world ramifications. We know, he is in school, therapy, & has some kind of support system. Whether it’s his wife or not, we don’t know yet.
No one has found any divorce records, any proceedings for one, or a new address for him yet, it seems?
Suffice to say, he is planning a come back. Seems like this dumpster fire hasn’t completely burned out.
Three types of therapy...likely talk therapy, 1 on 1, group therapy, w/ a group of loser sex pests, & couples therapy, if still w/ wife.
He definitely seems to have a Cluster B personality disorder.
How can he think it’s a good idea to “check in” with his little group of shit lords? & whatever random followers forgot to unsubscribe or stayed for the trash fire. Does Twitch show how many subs/ followers, someone has? I’m not very familiar w/ that site.
A part of him seems to think that he will be able to continue interacting w/ “the public” as a crappy, D list, video game, e-celeb.
He doesn’t know it’s over to the point that there will be no clean slate. He’ll never not be known as a gross, daddy fetish, rough sex, groomer w/ a fetish for young, overweight girls. A creeper. No clean slate, ever. Delusional of him to think a status update is a good idea. Maybe he wants the drama?

So basically ban him from Twitch, Discord, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, his email accounts, etc., basically anywhere he could possibly communicate with a fan to prevent him from doing it again? Don't we generally rely on the courts to ban people from the internet when they've been convicted of a related crime?

Should we also ban him from Steam since he was a gaming celebrity? Maybe ban him from flying since he used air travel to meet up with some of his slags? Essentially "banish" him from modern civilization for perving while married?

I hate being in the position of appearing to actually support Ryan (because I don't), but my basic question of "how much punishment is 'enough'?" still hasn't been satisfactorily answered.

I'm asking that uncomfortable and irritating question because this extrajudicial "punishment" for scummy behavior is really getting out of hand, growing increasingly vicious and spiteful while forever broadening the definition of "scummy" to ensnare more and more people. We have an actual justice system for a reason, and preventing "cancel culture" (another word for "vigilante justice") is exactly why we have it.
