I've never been a fan of Colin and not even Kinda Funny, I gave them a chance back in the days but it didn't hook me. So I knew even less about what Moriarty has said in Twitter, but because of the backlash I looked into it.
I absolutely understand why people don't like him, he comes of as a asshole to me too. Listening the Fireside Chat he also basically also admits that. He's attitude does bother me a lot. But personally I'm not ready to attach all these labels to him what people seem to do. I also understand why people do that, because he has come off like that many times and doesn't want to explain and clarify Nor even apologize. But going bit deeper than just the questionable tweets also show that it's not that simple.
And for the Brandon's appearance, I'm proud of him. I think he did good job expressing L&R in what he talked and even challenged Moriarty on it just a little bit. I think it's good for Moriarty and his fans to hear something like this and maybe considering taking it to heart. And ofcourse many of Colin's fans already show love and respect to others. I don't mean to paint his fanbase on a broad brush, many of us are fans of both.
I'm not angry at Jones for going to the chat. I'm just saddened that it has caused some divide in the community and that some people don't feel welcomed anymore. But I'm not gonna attack and blame those people either. I haven't ever been the butt of Colin's joke. He has never disrespected me or people like me. But he has done it to others, so I can't just pretend that it hasn't happened.
