Symonds gained a cult following on the film website Birth.Movies.Death (formerly known as Badass Digest) writing under the pseudonym FilmCritHulk. He was known for his hard-hitting, long-winded style and TYPING IN ALL CAPS AS TO IMITATE HIS NAMESAKE. While that can be considered cowish in and of itself, that's only the tip of the iceberg.
You see, Symonds is also a devout follower of the Church of SocJus, as is expected of anyone who works under Devin Faraci, and it infects his work and takes up the majority of his Twitter. The election of Trump in particular broke him to the point where he ceased writing in his all caps style . This mainly started to seep on when GamerGate first occurred, with Symonds expressing "betrayal" from some of his followers for siding with the cause, and that the movement had no real points . Ever since then he's only gotten more and more unhinged .
