You know it's gotta be an especially bitter pill to swallow when you realize that this essentially boiled down to whether or not a given content creator supported Chez Apocalypse or not in its efforts to openly politicize the site at the behest of Zoe Quinn, courtesy of the Autism Holy War. In an effort to try to put a leash on CA contributors who could have potentially helped give GG a platform, Dan and Kyle basically brought this autistic shitstorm right to Channel Awesome, who understandably wanted none of it.Jackula did 3 videos on CTC one was just him talking about the cliques there and he threw the Chez Apocalypse crowd under the bus for their douchery mostly. Then he did one on Jewario which has since been taken down and the next video explains why while he never gave the name people used clues to discover the name of Jewario's victim. Well when the KickVic stuff started Jackula had Marzgurl on one of his life streams for about 30 minutes to discuss why she was involved in it and the elephant in the room of Jewario was funny as they avoided that but they did talk about CTC and Jackula said something like "Well it wasn't the point but the one good thing I guess is I got more subscribers" her eyes widened and and she stuttered "Yeah that wasn't the point" but by her face you could see it was and she was shocked he got subscribers and she didn't out of it.
Marzgurl and Allison really thought they'd ride CTC to more subscribers and it kills them that CA is fine even got a new Studio last Christmas, Brad made a new snob movie, and even someone they still do crossovers with like AVGN is doing so well he got Gilbert Gottfried on his show. While they are stuck being drama whores to get attention.
I'm not even exaggerating when I say that. If you ever read the CTC docco and leaf through the gripes, Ellis spends fucking pages trying to white knight Olson as doing nothing wrong and being a hero who helped expose pedophiles (truth of course being that got caught being part of a GAY OP run by Laurelai in which she planted CP for him to find). What she then tries to hand-wave is the fact that Olson was a fucking embarassment of a content creator who made six videos in two years (one of which accused Gamergate of terrorism) and was such an unmitigated prick that he made working at Channel Awesome an unbearable chore for many of its content creators, leading Mike Michaud to do something unheard of, and fire his ass.
Meaning all of this - all of this - boils down to a combination of jealousy over successful content creators, attempting to use an ongoing controversy that had nothing to do with Channel Awesome in a shameless power-grab, an attempt to forcibly take down Channel Awesome to steer views their way when that power-grab failed, and maybe a handful of legitimate gripes that otherwise would not be worth getting bent out of shape over.
