Forums - Gaming Discussion - Youtuber Banned For Viral RDR2 Video

Saw something about this yesterday. I'm glad they fixed the situation after a bunch of people, including fellow youtubers Boogie and Keemstar, complained.

This is stupid, for sure, especially cheering for that kind of thing. I'm not defending that in any way, don't worry.

The thing disturbing me is the way Cocktoe reacted, with basically "he should be tortured, castrated, killed", because "he did that to a feminist". The guy doing the videos should surely be put in a mental asylum because he clearly has psychological issues, but in my opinion it would be the same if he did the videos about any other kinds of people. Yes, the videos got more views because "feminist", but it doesn't change the fact that it would be wrong even with another kind of victim. "That guy should be banned because his videos showed a fucked up violence", yes. "That guy should be banned because his videos showed a fucked up violence on a feminist", no.

Coktoe was clearly joking. Look at his avatar. Coktoe is a nice person. He does not deserve to be banned, especially for three days, for sarcasm that while not funny was so inherently obvious.

Rip Coktoe, you will be resurrected in three days like our lord and savior Jesus Christ. 

I don't know about the ban, but I don't think he was clearly joking. It's not obvious he was joking at all.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?


Let the video out. It's just crazy video game silliness.

I get the feeling that YouTube's actual problem (assuming this wasn't just the action of an over-zealous moderator who's since been overruled by their bosses) was more to do with the people in the video's comments who were advocating actual acts of violence against real-life feminists. Though banning the account of the guy who posted the video instead of just, for instance, forcibly disabling comments on the video was about the dumbest possible thing they could have done.

Hs avatar is literally Liam Neeson punching a Suffragette 

 

Ironically he had it way before this controversy

I actually had two customers come into my shop talking about this earlier today, saying how disgusting the videos are... thought I'd join in their conversation and joke about equality, if men can be beaten up in games, why not women too? One of them said "But nobody puts videos of beating men online"... yeah, I wasn't sure if they were serious so I just YouTubed a whole bunch of "funny" videos from GTA and Red Dead Redemption showing men also being killed in silly ways, then said once the online comes out they'll be able to create female avatars and go round beating men up if the videos upset them so much they really want revenge. One of them seemed okay with that, the other just seemed confused as to why people would do anything like that in games, it's as if this was the first ever video of its kind she'd seen...

It's nice to see Shirrako has his account back now, although he should never have been banned in the first place.

You're fighting the good fight. Actually talking to people about this, and offering some persective, is lovely.

Why? Why does the political views of the victim impact the situation in any way? You're fine with games in which you kill hundreds of people, but punching a feminist is a monstrosity? That's ridiculous. 

It's just wrong. Wrong and sick. Start out at a lower power. Let his screams wash over those attending his disciplining. Especially the children. Then ramp it up until his until his testicles  E-X-P-L-O-D-E. If he passes out, inject him with cocaine to keep him awake. You've got to be pretty fucked in the head to think what that idiot youtuber did was acceptable, let alone funny.

This thinking of yours is far worse than that video on youtube, you yourself are fucked in the head for thinking in such a sadistic powertripping  way.

Really disgusting.



If feminism has really sunken so low as to fret about a Youtuber engaging in one digital 3D model punching another digital 3D model in a video game meant for entertainment, you really have to wonder just how fragile, puritanical, and out of touch modern Western 3rd wave Feminism has become, but perhaps more importantly - just what exactly happened to the priorities of Feminists, focusing on a video game in the same world where other countries require woman to cover up and walk around with a male escort with seemingly no focus on these issues (like, in REAL life, NOT in a video game)?

This is when my conspiracy theory brain starts to fire off..

You really have to wonder who's really pulling the strings here, and their possible malicious, harmful intent for women, because this is getting pretty clear that they are deceiving women to be distracted by frivolous, trivial manufactured "issues" while ignoring REAL issues that affect women in many countries around the world. I would just like to know, what is the source of this lunacy and deception?
