Thomas "Tomska" Ridgewell used to be one of the most well known comedy channels in the UK. Internationally his work on the "ASDF" movies is what he's best known for, he's also the voice of the character Tom in the late great Edd Gould's Eddworld series and later took over the show at his best friend's after they passed on.

Thomas is a sad sight to behold, be it his friend's death or him grasping with his fame he's quite literally ballooned as a man and become a washed up fatso. At most times he's pathetic and on the rare occasion will reveal his true colours as surprisingly bitter and two-faced to people.

An example of this would be his relationship with Christopher Bingham, or "Bing." Tom had been perving on Bing's sister, ThatJennyBee, since she was around 14, as detailed in the vlog below from 2013. The reason why they broke up is rumoured to have been because Tom cheated on her with another woman, this made Bing rather (understandably) mad and in some sort of reaction after the break up Tom purged videos featuring Bing and his sister from his vlog channel in addition to changing descriptions of collabs with Bing to mocking nicknames.

Thomas touts himself as a male feminist and all around good guy role model, but in reality he's a creep and a chauvinist. Another incident I can recall is his controversy over a series of "Sex Talk" videos, this along with many tumblr posts actually gave rather ignorant and potientially harmful advice to his underage fans.

Members of Sleepycabin like Spazkid (a potential cow in his own right) have attacked him for this and other incidents. One case is where OneyNG called him out for being abusive to animators and refusing to pay them, in response Tom deflected by attacking Oney for "homophobia" and insinuating he was as dangerous to youths as Sam Pepper.

Caps of OneyNG were sourced from the Mattimation tumblr, which includes what is basically the full story including a later apology from Tom for getting caught.

Throughout 2015 and 2016 TomSka had made efforts to catalogue his diet and attempt to lose weight. Recently he's decided to just fuck it and go full body-poz instead of trying to better himself in any way. You can find seeds of this wallowing in old posts like these:

Speaking of Eddsworld drama, on the contrary to what he claims, Tom and his co-star Tord never really liked each other. Tord left early on into the show's popularity to get away from the fans. A lot of people wanted him back, so Tom wrote him into the finale with a different voice without the original Tord's consent, making him into a villain and Tom being cast as the hero who saves the day. He tried to justify this by saying it was symbolic of Tom dealing with the resurgence of Edd's cancer, but in the end it's an inappropriate way to end your dead friend's series that he personally wanted you to take care of.

There's also problems with him taking too long to get out episodes, taking about three years to complete a one-year project, and backer rewards for the Eddsworld Indiegogo not being delivered on time. Years old drama, but typical cow behaviour.

At one point he was so fat that he couldn't actually diet; a professional trainer gave up on him and got kicked out of weight loss programs because his alcoholism would've been fatal. He's also had e-fights with Shadman over him drawing porn of Tom's dead friend getting fucked by the Grim Reaper. Pretty fucked on Shad's part, and justified on Tom's, but a cow crossover nonetheless.

Here's his respective weights before he became a sadcow.

Here's him more recently.

There's a bit of Tumblr pandering sprinkled on this shit sundae:

Allegedly, the undertale characters (yes, seriously) and :islamic: woman were meant to be backers who donated to Eddsworld legacy, and they got fucked over at the last minute because the artist is a hardcore SJW. There are no muslim sounding names in the credits either:

He also did a short-lived podcast, one of the episodes was on GamerGate if that's your thing.
Due to Tom's and Spaz's tendency to backpedal, the two have managed to delete fucking everything whenever their beef together backfires. If anyone else has more info that'd be fantastic. Most of the heavy lifting for this thread was done by @chadmuska, @penelope shitstop and @TheScooper, so thanks to them for giving me a template to base this on.

Jesus /Christ/, that's extremely disrespectful to both Tord and Edd - especially Edd. Imagine giving your magnum opus/passion project to your best friend, thinking he'd take good care of it and end it the way you'd want it to, only for him to write himself as the ultimate hero in the finale and disrespect someone's wishes to not be involved with it.

Aren't there still comics being released regularly on DeviantART? Do the fans know about that situation, or do they just not care?

I also think that the fact that his audience is made up almost entirely of children or young teenagers leaves him in a pitiable position. Many of them like cartoonish, non-sequitur humor, so they flock to Tomska's content due to its randomness as well as the prestige and fame it has throughout the internet in terms of its easily recognizable and quotable phrases (or simply because of Eddsworld or other famous internet animators).

What results is a bunch of kind and well-meaning, yet ultimately naive fans who respect Tomska for his content, but don't have the knowledge or the initiative to recognize his less respectable behavior and actions. As a result, most of the tweets and youtube comments he receives are the ones who will blindly follow what he says, while also treating his comments on his depression and mental illness with greater trust and direness. Thus, they try to say that his weight doesn't matter, that his poor circumstances aren't his fault, and most importantly, that they trust him to do well in order to cheer up the man who made them laugh (or in many cases, to simply receive his attention).

Tomska receives his body of support and comfirmation from this naive fanbase (and also other friends within his hugbox), giving him the ego to think that he is doing things right and that he deserves his voice when in reality, he is only listening to a crowd that does not know any better, one that he exploits as yesmen in order to avoid the truth of his inferiority that creeps around his every action.

Yes, the comics are still ongoing with various guest artists, but Matt Hargreaves took the show out of Tom's hands after the final "Legacy" episode. Now Edd's family are in charge, but Matt still writes for the strips.

Any YouTuber with a little kid audience should be nuked off the website.

Damn, so this is what Tom has been up to other than Eddsworld and ASDF movie? Tbh, I really didn’t know the guy other than a few of his animations and such. Such a shame that a guy you hardly knew other than their hard work could end up being so ugly if you didn’t know any better. Guess the truth always hurts huh?

Like I mentioned so long ago, there was a video Tord made on his personal youtube on the regards of why he left and he never went to Edd's funeral... and unsurprisingly it was because of Tom and apperently being stalked and harrased by fans, I can't remember much about the video seems it was forever ago but it appears that Tords channel and his video has been blasted off the internet.
