    And let's remember to keep Trump and politics out of this. If there is a correlation to be made, then we're all pretty aware of it. If there is not, there's no reason to bring it up. It's a slippery slope when you start throwing things like that in to a conversation.

    If you really want to talk about nitty-gritty politics and how it is effecting the GFFA, take it to a private conversation.

    I'm not american so I don't care about politics, it's just what rude people do.

    BTW, I can keep this out of the topic. My bad.

    Here's the thing though, some people don't think it's rude, or even if it is rude, it is necessary to shame or silence the opposing side.
    Dragging politics into a discussion is like throwing fuel on to a fire. We have already have an issue on hand, let's not make it worse!

    I do personnally think that using your fame to publicly attack someone who barely can defend himself isn't the most heroic move I've seen around.

    Yeah, I agree. So, let's look at how and why that is wrong. When discussing this topic about Johnson bashing Zeroh, there's no reason to bring Trump into the picture, even if it is the same thing. The problem is that you're welcoming politics into the situation. Perhaps if he wasn't President it would be different, but the fact of the matter is that it is a slippery slope once you do that.

    We have plenty of other celebrities to use as examples. If you can't think of any, no problem. Articulate things differently.

    Mike Zeroh has 130k subscribers on YouTube. He's not a random person. Zeroh has made a name for himself. Pointing out the fact he's always wrong isn't an attack. If Zeroh doesn't want to be called out for lying and stealing he could always stop lying and stealing. Rian Johnson didn't "@" Zeroh. He simply laughed when he found out Zeroh was the source of the story and he told a behind the scenes story.

    This isn't bullying.

    Yeah I know, he totally deserved it and he's gonna meet KMT's fate for being that toxic.

    Justice has been done.

    Yeepee.

    He deactivated his Twitter account shortly after after Johnson's tweet. Besides, if you really want to search through the (air quotes) "abuse" he suffered just type in either "Mike Zeroh" or "@mikezeroh" into Twitter searchbar and the only thing you'll find are tweets about him being a liar with most of them posted way before this whole thing happened. Or maybe I've blocked all the people that could've gone after him and I simply didn't see these messages with harassment. It is possible however unlikely, as most of my blocks come from the "Ruin Johnson" crowd and they are especially keen on dunking on Johnson at every opportunity possible.

    PS. Also this:

    I'm sure most things are more fun with a higher margarita intake!
    Heck, even work would be more fun after several margaritas...

    Friendly reminder that people still think that he's somehow "unprofessional" in spite of regularly giving one of the most level-headed responses I've seen for being involved with a controversial movie ever. The dude has handled criticism better than George Lucas did in the Prequel Trilogy days.

    Imagine being so mad about a movie you didn't like that you have to craft multiple hogwash narratives suggesting that the people who made it are bullies or horrible, abusive people... For ten months. How empty must your life be?

    Not to defend Mike Zeroh, I sometimes watch the guy’s videos because I like some of the ideas he throws out. None of his predictions have come true, and most of his theories are repeated from other websites/forums. However, I find some of his connections from Fact A to fact B interesting.
    That is the one and only reason I click on his stuff.

    Some people think that it is an act of self defense while ( even if I think the story is false ) he was already calling the dude like an idiot wayyyyyyyyyyyyy before the supposed fake news about his career because it was during the filming with his team and the actors.

    So this director was making a movie while mocking fans and I'm not really surprised to see the outcome.

    Weird that the crew here classifies bullying as humor.

    Perhaps you could provide some links to prove your statements? Because we've been hearing for month about RJ "attacking the fans" without any actual evidence (at least until this Mike Zeroh thing).
