So, i think we can all agree, the past few days have been pretty sad.
The main story being the death of another legendary actor, Robin Williams, the guy who gave us the Genie in Disney's Aladdin, and Teddy Roosevelt in the Night at the Museum trilogy. And, as always, people have opened their hearts and given tribute to Williams, in memory of his performance and roles they remember him in. Even the Nostalgia Critic gave out a memorial to him. thatguywiththeglasses.com/vide…
But, like every other event, some idiots will troll at anything. and this in particular was just awful. To those who hadn't heard, or don't use the social media, Zelda Williams (daughter of Robin) was being trolled on Twitter, with graphic, photoshopped imagery of Robin sent to her. That just sounds really wrong. The fact that someone on the internet had the nerve to think "A celebrity died? let's troll a relative of his!" Well, i'm only glad that those creeps got suspended from twitter. if they somehow come back and do it again, they need to get a life.
Another annoying set of trolls i came across were on Ashen's recent YouTube video. A half-hour crossover story, which just so happens to be sponsored by Dr Pepper, in which Stuart Ashens goes on a quest to retrieve his stolen sofa, got bombarded with random rubbish and hate comments, just because it has a product placement and such. This video had some great jokes, a neat cast of other YouTube guests (despite that i hardly know them) and a clever plot, and these people wasted they time typing it such annoying comments, almost like they didn't even watch the entire film. And besides, there was little mention of Dr Pepper throughout it. Were people like this when Weebl and Bob did those shorts with Creme Eggs??
I think Ashens should consider reuploading this and/or disable the comments. Especially since the annotated interactivity to this film is missing. Either YouTube is slow, or the content itself is yet to be posted.
Is the rest of this summer gonna be like this?
