why are people saying watch rooster teeth instead of jontron like rooster teeth members made a game out of stalking women they thought were hot with the intention of scaring the women because they get bored on their way to work
if i remember correctly, they’d mentioned this “Game” a couple times on twitter at least a year prior to when they actually explained what it was. so it wasn’t a one time thing, it was something they’d done multiple times for AT LEAST a year. people who worked in their office told them several times it was fucked up and disgusting, and they continued to do it.
they first explained it in one of their videos, which was deleted, but here’s a transcript of the conversation. (it’s two guys talking about how fun they think it is to stalk women so be careful if you read it)
a couple days later geoff offered a really bare bones apology which was basically "Uhh Sorry We Told You About This Game, Sorry You Found Out About it. We’re Sorry If It Offended You, So… Haha Yeah" and gavin never actually apologized. he did try to justify it though which was really gross and embarrassing. gavin’s done shit like this in the past though like when he said he would break up with women by ignoring them for days or weeks at a time, even as they got upset.
michael isn’t good about apologizing either, and ray promoted a blog that satirized feministroosterteeth, a blog dedicated to voicing concerns over rt’s behavior which led to that blog getting hate. there’s other stuff too but i don’t have links for everything. i know that both of their behavior has led to people being harassed for speaking out.
i’ve been told they’ve misgendered a trans woman and have recently done this shit, warning for a transmisogynist slur.
they use gendered slurs and ableist slurs pretty frequently in their videos along with #rape jokes. and i’m surprised they haven’t gotten a callout like jontron’s considering the amount of shit they’ve done and i’m even more surprised people will actually try to defend them or justify their actions
I’ve seen these guys on my dash for years, and I’m just now learning about this? Why isn’t this more talked about? Because they scream at video games and it’s funny??
