Boogie / Boogie2988 / "Francis" / Steven Jason Williams - Fat, Rapidly Declining Divorced "Nice Guy" Middle-Aged Youtuber, Former Edgy Porn Blogger

Several hours ago, someone on the Sam and Tolki subreddit posted a screenshot of a private message from someone claiming to be a "freelance reporter" who wanted to know the personal contact info of S&T's main moderator, HaberdasherA; the writer said their name is "Gary Trammel" and they wanted to interview HaberdasherA.
The S&T poster made a thread showing a screenshot of this message. Other people in the thread mention that they've gotten similar messages asking for Christopher Tom's personal info, too. HaberdasherA commented to say that that he hadn't received a message from this person despite their claims that they wanted to interview him.
People in the thread think that the "freelance reporter" is either actually Boogie or a private investigator hired by Boogie. Presumably because he wants to sue these people for defamation or whatever.

Note that there's no solid evidence that Boogie had anything to do with any of this, though it seems likely.

Boogie again goes off on the haters on livestream, calling Christopher Tom and his haters cruel for providing running commentary on him, saying that they should 'leave him alone' if they 'love him':

Don't forget that this is the same guy who dm'd a fake iDubbbz account congratulating him on shitting on Keemstar:

So Boogie says "it's cruel to hold somebody to task and broadcast their mistakes" but when iDubbbz holds Keem to task and broadcasts his mistakes, it's cool and Boogie loves it.

Also, let me make a prediction: Boogie is talking about his suicidal ideation and his haters a lot because he's gearing up for another suicidal phase. Every year Boogie talks about killing himself on his birthday, and now we're entering Summer with his birthday in July he's going to pull a similar stunt. In June of 2018, Boogie had his breakdown stream after a welfare check, in June/July of 2019 Boogie had another suicidal phase at Vidcon. What will 2020 bring?
Hopefully him actually killing himself, either through his gluttony or suicide.

Speaking of the relationship between Boogie and his critics: Boogie has recently been accused of sockpuppeting an account on r/SamAndTolki and asking for Haberdasher/Christopher Tom's dox under the guise of being a journalist. I don't know if this is Boogie transparently sockpuppeting or a troll trying to stoke tensions between Boogie and the subreddit, but considering his focus on the subreddit lately and his previous failed attempts at using lies and the media against the subreddit, it's not like this is off the cards for Boogie. Especially since Christopher Tom and Haber were people he's been mentioning a lot recently.
Whoever it is, asking for their address as a part of "contact details" is incredibly unsubtle.

Why is he going NOW after Christopher Tom?! His documentary about Boogie is several months old and he made in the meantime other videos. His most recent one about the Nicocado/Stephanie Soo Drama.

And Boogie should be careful what he is doing. I checked Christopher Tom's channel, and learned that he is s cancer survivor. Which would look pretty shitty on Boogie, if he tries to dox a one year cancer survivor. But on the other hand, yeah, do go on, Boogie. I just get some snacks and wait how You will fuck this up.

Totalbiscuit didn't make it through cancer and boogie had no problem turning on him, shitting on a survivor would be nothing to him.

Boogie's channel has been doing progressively worse over the past year and he likely attributes a lot of that to Christopher Tom's video, especially given that it has 3.3 million views and is referenced still in the video comments. Given that YouTube is his online home, it probably stings a bit more as well.

The Boogie PI Situation

On the 13th May 2020, a user on r/SamAndTolki would post a screenshot of a person calling themselves 'Gary Trammel' using the account 'LeverageAR' requesting the 'contact information' of HaberdasherA:
pi.png
Other users would chime in that they had received similar requests from the same person, but also asking for information relating to Christopher Tom. Both of these people Boogie had recently talked about on both stream and in a recent video:

In light of this video, Christopher Tom has said he intends to make a response to Boogie. Both Christopher Tom and Haber are aware of this person, who has since deleted their reddit account:
leveragear.pngct1.pngct2.png
LeverageAR is a not-so-subtle reference to Leverage Private Investigations, situated in Arkansas. Where Gary Tramel works. Which has a lovely website:
lpi.png
Leverage Private Investigations has been registered as a business for 32 years with the website being up since 2012, so it's not a bullshit website thrown up for the sake of putting up a front of legitimacy. The question is: is this a troll, using Leverage and misspelling the name Gary Tramel/Trammel to stir up drama between r/SamAndTolki and Boogie, or is this the work of an incompetent boomer private investigator, who doesn't know anything about the internet?

Sit back, watch, and enjoy this months Boogie2988 drama.

"get started again."

Ah yes, getting started again for the thousandth time. Not like all those other times like when he got the surgery or when he was told he had to lose weight to even have the surgery.

Nice summary. It has a lot of potential but I don't see this drama going anywhere. Seems more likely to be a troll or one of Boogie's over-eager defenders.

Would be happily proven wrong, though.
Boogie is an unhinged manchild I think there is at least even chances he hired this guy. It could also be Boogie himself posing as that PI, either is exceptional, and ultra scummy. Why hasn't this insane obese degenerate caught Covid yet? Surely there is an enabler that can catch it an infect him with it?

I'm unsure about it also. However, Boogie was happy to lie about being swatted and hacked for sympathy, then lie about his local police force and mobcrush respectively to damage control.

He also said that he was willing to go to jail to make the subreddit look bad. So although this could easily be a troll, it's not out of character for Boogie. Either way, I think regardless of whether or not it's true - if Sam and Tolki keep talking about it, Boogie will likely have a twitter spergout in response.

Very true, I'm not dismissing the chance that he actually did reach out to someone, much like he bugged his friend into writing a Newsweek article about him (which backfired). It would be entertaining for sure if the sleuths in S&T got to the bottom of it.

That twitter spergout came sooner than I thought, it also comes with a bonus video "Why I Block My WORST Critics - Boogie2988 Exposed - Setting It Straight":
1.jpg2.jpg3.jpg
Archive of Boogie's Video:

Summary from Reddit:

  1. Says he put on 19 pounds while in quarantine
  2. Says he has a long ways to go be at Disneyland levels of exercising again.
  3. Wants to travel again but might put the travel content on his main channel.
  4. Says he isn’t really interested in gaming news because of how depressing it is despite the majority of his fans voting on a poll wanted more gaming videos.
  5. Talks about his views on recent videos.
  6. Says his 25 minute king video wasn’t done to be a pity party.
  7. Finally talks about blocking people but says he is open to “fair criticism.” Thus happens about 7 minutes into an 11 minute long video.
  8. Talks about false narratives and false context.
  9. Says blocking people is a form of self-love and his therapist agrees.
  10. Says the Boogie from two years ago would be appalled at the 2020 Boogie for blocking people because it’s against free speech.
  11. Says he wants to get better and ends the video by asking people to become a member because views are down and videos are getting demonetised. Then immediately says not to become a member if you’re low on money.
 

I can't imagine

Ah yes, I always introduce myself to potential clients and collaborators by stating my first and last name.
It wouldn't be that weird for a reporter to do it if they were trying to convince a source they're legit. Makes it easier for the source to trust them, since they can see their byline by searching for them on Google or something.

Of course, "Gary Trammel", "Gary Trammel writer" and "Gary Trammel reporter" don't bring up hits for any reporter at all that I can find, so yeah, kinda bizarre to bring it up.

I'm 99% positive this is gay ops. No private investigator worth their salt (although the S&T subreddit did post that whoever runs the Facebook page is a fucking manchild with their epic meme) would take to just sending private messages on Reddit or any social media, for that matter - maybe in a last ditch effort after you've gotten paid and don't fucking care anymore. Reddit and Twitter are Boogie's only familiar mediums so for him to lazily attempt to get someone else to provide doxx for him is completely up this hefer's alley. It's either that or someone trying to gay ops and put blame on Boogie. His twitter reaction will tell all in time, though.
