Already said it in Hope's thread that she's got a body-count now and she doesn't care, but:
I like how Hope has completely taken ownership of him on Twitter. She's posting a lot about him despite them being exes.
(could you post those tweets, please? I can't access Twitter atm to look at them for myself)

If she's been tweeting about this more than other people, she's just virtue-signaling to give the appearance she cares by trying to make up for her lack of human empathy. She's one of the ones who was closest to him than anyone else, so she knew exactly how miserable he was, and leaving him was something you just know she knew would've destroyed him. She's trying to deflect from being looked at with a critical eye because Zac really and truly was tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down when she left him a year ago. The dude was a mess who should've gotten help, but he probably couldn't even before the lockdown. And yet knowing he was a mess, she chose to stay with him anyway and manipulated him by playing with his insecurities. It was just a toxic relationship all around and now someone's dead from it.

ANN I don't think is going to suffer from this much even though they're going to mourn a prolific contributor, but they're going to move on as quietly as they did with Hazukari's disassociation. They're only going to hurt if something bigger comes along to kick them while they're down.

Of course, it wouldn't be an ANN article if they weren't gay and like huffing each other's farts every chance they get by citing their own sources.

Seems to be notorious on the ANN write up.

Liars gotta stick together.

Seems like we aren't the only ones who have been jerking off him.
ANN staff continues to be the amalgamation of human sewage.



I just realized something is wrong in this picture.

Something is missing from Zac's DXMN profile.

It's his Facebook archive right here.


Here's a post he made publicly that he was trying to make sound wholesome if only he wasn't an asshole.
 
His family has my sympathy.

Something to the thing of "TB hurt a lot of people by supporting GamerGate, he wont be able to hurt anyone ever again now" or some similar shit.
Are you thinking of this? It's the only thing I could find that he said on the subject.

In any case, as for Zac himself, my sympathy is sadly limited knowing his treatment of others. So I'll just say it's a shame he either never got the help he needed, or it wasn't enough.

ZAC BERTSCHY IS DEAD?!
Did YOU make him dead?

Had to. In the list of questions we are supposed to ask if there is a bomb threat that is the first question.

I really want to feel bad for him and say something nice. But the more I read about him and what he has posted. I'm just not feeling it. I get the distinct impression Zach was a bad person. It's kinda weird he joined the 50% (the percent went up) and not Hope.

But....I genuinely can't believe the mourners were friends with such a miserable person.
Hope is just as bitter and vindictive as Zac was. Never said a thing about him after they broke up, but only now she comes out of the woodwork and mentions him.

When dealing with specimens who cynically latch on to performative fanaticism in order to get clout, coochie, or coin, and use this as an excuse to be utterly and directly despicable to everyone they think they can get away with stamping down on, then I see zero issue with pissing on their proverbial or literal grave.

I had the same reaction when Jack Chick was dragged off black metal hell after a lifetime of spewing the most hateful and contradictory edgelord fundie shit he could think of in comics aimed at children and vulnerable tards to scare them into converting, and I will no doubt have some obscene crude MSpaint job of homoerotic interracial fornication the moment David Duke goes to the great fed klan rally in the sky.

If he had just regurgitated dumb woke shit without actively chosing to engage in "ANYONE WHO I DONT LIKE IS A SUBHUMAN NAZI AND MUST BE PUNISHED RIGHT NOWNOWNOW!" and "HAHAHA ICKY OUTGROUPER NAZI IS SUFFERING/DYING" style bullshit, then nobody would be particularly interested in kicking his corpse. He could have been as ultra autistic in having internet fights with his various enemies, he could take an entire train of fugly cletus looking troons up his ass. He could have been cucked by adolf hitler himself. And so long as he was not such a pointlessly hateful and demagogic dick about it to people, I would feel zero desire to engage in any tomfoolery regarding his an-hero.

She was just going through two twitter pity parties, too. Talking about the wrath she incurred while reviewing 'The Legend of Korra' and manages to bring up Gatchaman Crowds, TGWTG and Gamergate. She then followed that up with a post about how isolation/quarantine is difficult, depression and something about a traumatic summer. The sad part is that she handled it better than the late Zac Bertschy.

I dunno. Doesn't sound like she's handling it any better. The horror of former youtube stars realizing that their prospects of ever being able to support themselves with a real world job is pretty terrifying. I can see why Gatchaman Crowds' message that distancing yourself from internet drama is a good way to avoid it destroying your life would be so infuriating to someone for whom the internet is their entire existence. She understands she's worthless in the real world.

As for Zac's suicide... I am surprised, but not that surprised. I've talked with Justin in person a few times at convention, but I've never met Zac at any of those ANN panels. Someone desperate enough to marry Hope even after seeing how obviously insane she is definitely had some major emotional problems. I guess it wasn't just him play-acting the persona of the perpetually jaded, depressed writer (leaning over a typewriter with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, etc.). He didn't seem to have a lot of friends or family outside of the ANN crowd and some twitter contacts. Maybe the quarantine tipped things over the edge, but honestly who did he even have in person contact with even before all that? Almost all the people I see giving condolences say they never met him in person. Twitter acquaintances are no substitue for real human contact. Almost everybody said "I didn't always agree with him." Even his best friend Justin started his eulogy with "he wasn't the easiest person to get along wih." Though it is pretty moving to hear Justin talk about how he basically could've ended up the same way. It'll be hard for him to get over survivor's guilt.

With the way the podcast had gotten especially terrible lately (since Hope left him and Lynzee became cohost), I suspected he was losing his sanity behind the scenes. I felt sorry for him as soon as I heard he and Hope had gotten married, since I knew some horrible tragedy like this was guaranteed to be the eventual result. That was what first brought me to kiwifarms. I couldn't look away, I had to know how those decisions would ruin both their lives. And now I can say (at least for Zac) I've finally seen it through to the bitter end. A lot of people putting the blame solely on Hope, but honestly Zac was responsible for his own choices that let to this.



But after reading that ANN article... What a sad an pathetic obituary. Honestly, Zac deserves better. He did his job well and was entertaining with occasionally interesting opinions (though less and less in recent years probably starting around when he got engaged to Hope). But man, that article. What awful trash. They're basically making it sound like a human's only value or legacy that they will be remembered for is how much they advanced SJW causes. Like that's something (or even the only thing) that actually matters in life. Even if I was an SJW advocate, if somebody wrote that kind of obituary for me, I'd be furious. I'm mean how could anybody really believe that nonsense is what gives meaning to A PERSON'S LIFE?

Since he is basically the man who made ANN what it currently is, it makes me wonder what differences we'll see now that he's gone. Too bad he'll never get to see that "last" Evangelion movie (who am I kidding, probably no one else will ever get to.

Only video online that even mentions his death and he's reading an article of theirs on anime news network. You know no one in the animeverse likes the guy when one Asian dude is reading the article without remorse.
This proves how full of shit ANN are when they claimed he was loved by “millions”. If he’s so loved by “millions” everywhere, why is the only video documenting his death is the one that doesn’t even have 50 views? You know someone who died and was actually loved by “millions” everywhere. Prince, and he was everywhere on social media. Compared to His Royal Badness, Zac was an atom of an atom.

I know this is hard for his family and they deserve my sympathies and condolences, but to try to portray Zac like he was the Roger Ebert of anime critics, a beloved figure in anime and a humanitarian who stood up for the LGBT community is stupid and delusional. You know who stood up for the LGBT and is loved by millions of anime fans? Vic, the same guy whose life Zac tried to ruin. So I don’t buy into this garbage that he was beloved in the anime community, and neither do a lot of people apparently.
