The Nintendo 64 System
I would understand the response of, "It's out of my hands; the merch is all through Patreon now." if she had been fulfilling rewards before that, supporters hadn't been paying for absolutely nothing during the months and months she had been away, and the new merch wasn't hilariously overpriced. (Patreon suggests the hoodies at around a $30 tier.)I don't understand, surely she can just put her shitty art on a cheap hoodie from redbubble and just post it out to the top tier patrons after the first payment? Why does it matter that Patreon says she has to wait three months? I assume the merch is done *through* patreon in which case she's still choosing to scam her fans, because she could have just... not chosen to use Patreon for merch rewards or (gasp) not done merch rewards if she can't manage the work.
Anyone who supports her financially after the drama and with the model she has right now deserves to be parted from their money. I feel like most of her income is going to have to come from ad revenue at this point, but I might be giving her fans too much credit.
