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??

I only like girls who look like they can summon crows whenever they want with magic
my anaconda don’t want none unless you got
still not tired of this
the stuff of legends
Even tho that “update: I banged him” post is obviously really dumb and I think most people rolled their eyes at it tbh I’m kind of worried since it became so popular that a lot of the young & impressionable people on this site took that to mean “if a man says he’s a feminist you should reward him with sex” which is the most counterproductive thing literally ever
this joke was flawless
JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit
for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please
Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.
