Who is LadyBuggin777? Is She Real or Not?

We interrupt the E3 posts for some shocking news. To some at least.

For the last few years, a user by the name of "LadyBuggin777" has taken refuge in the comments of IG's videos. Claiming to be his mother, Linda.
A lot of what she said was... extremely off (understatement of the year). Constantly invoking Godwin's Law on people that disagree with Chris, using phrases and memes with no context or idea how they work ("Get back in the kitchen" "U mad?"), outright lying about what Chris does (claiming he uploads a video every 1-2 weeks, saying he writes for a mature audience) or lying about what's in his videos (she decries AVGN for being "nothing but poop jokes and mugshots" when IG is guilty of those two things, especially the latter).

She goes extremely crazy if someone mentions they like other people. Someone suggested that Chris have a better upload rate like the Nostalgia Critic, and she had a fit.
One time, a viewer suggested that Chris edit his Arkham City video to remove the Thanksgiving references (as the YouTube version was uploaded two months later), she got mad at him for suggesting "censorship". How?
Oh, and if anything goes wrong, guess who's to blame? Me! Even if I had nothing to do with it, it falls on me because I dare speak out against her precious son. I'm like the man in the pickle costume.

You can find plenty of her insanity on IG's Encyclopedia Dramatica page. Even threatening users by saying she has family in the police and FBI. Uh oh, we better not "dun goof" then.

But then, something interesting happened. A reader by the name of Perry Mason (I see what you did there) was viewing the comments of his Silver Surfer video, when he stumbled across this.

A message directed to Linda, was replied to by IG. Without changing the typing pattern.

It's still there, on his Silver Surfer video.
Linda has since attempted damage control by claiming that's his "crew clowning around". I call bullshit. What's this crew and why have we never heard of it? If there's a crew, why does the only credit go to Chris? Don't scapegoat this on a non-existent group.

This brings up one of two possibilities.
One is that Linda has access to Chris' account. That would explain how people are blocked so quickly.
The other is that Chris has gone full-on Norman Bates. Impersonating his mother for some reason. Probably an attempt to garner sympathy for him (not working when "she" curses worse than you and calls anyone that disagrees with you a Nazi).
This does make me wonder, if it's Chris impersonating her, is he a massive Alex Jones fanboy? Going by the favorites.

Whatever the case may be, Chris needs to stop pretending he doesn't see LadyBuggin all over the comments. She comments more than the "haters". My Facebook informant once told me that someone asked about her, and the wall post was deleted within a few minutes. There's something peculiar going on...

We want answers! There's no more point in hiding the truth!

That is all. Next E3 post will arrive when I have enough material.

  1. So, like Shaolin Dave said, this brings us back to LindaOhio.

    She might be his actual mother, and Bores blocked her so she wouldn't ruin his sockpuppeting.

  2. Oh this is rich. I fucking knew it.

  3. I'm really sure she's a sockpuppet account created by Bores, you guys agree?

    1. I agree with you. Why would Chris drop so low that he would create a sockpuppet account, pretending to be his mother, and continuously bash comments left by haters? Does Chris seriously think that these scathing comments make him look good or, for that matter, improve his image in any positive way?
      This is the lowest he's ever gone; it's worse than when he stole Cyberman65's Sonic Generations gameplay footage (in my opinion).

  4. Christopher Bores never existed. Rather, he was the product of a deranged mind, that of a woman who wanted a son more than anything else in the world. She disguised herself as a fat, bad-acting video game reviewer, who she thought of as her pride and joy. The story only got stranger from there.

  5. Maybe the whole thing will end up like Sleepaway Camp. I don't know why, I just watched the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Perhaps this is the reason why Chris takes so long to release videos, he's too busy trolling everyone who spews any bit of hate toward him.

    Silly me, that's giving Bores way too much credit.

    ReplyDelete
  7. The "crew was clowning around" excuse just reeks of "oh shit, I got found out, now I have to pull an explanation out of my ass ASAP".

    According to LadyBuggin, she is Bores's real mother, but there is also a fake Bores's mother who logs into Bores's account so he can pretend to be him pretending to be her?

    If she'd signed onto his account to block someone an accidentally left a comment before switching back, why wouldn't she just say that in the first place?

    1. Maybe she's really Xorn :)

    2. I imagine the reason being it's Bores. That, or neither he nor his "mother" thought of such a simple excuse.

  8. If this is true, though, that means Eric Allen was lying when he said it was Chris's mother. Then again, could you blame him? Would you admit that your friend was so insecure and impotent that he had to create an alternate account and pose as a family member in order to try (unsuccessfully) to get back at his critics? It's like jamie_marsters all over again.

  10. I guess that Ladybuggin just logged into bores' account to block someone and forgot to lock back to her account to post the reply. It happened to me a few times when managing multiple accounts.

    1. I don't know. If that were the case, you'd think that would be her defense rather than the "crew messing around" bit. She's already stated that she helps manage her son's account on the side, so by simply admitting this, her son wouldn't lose any more face than he already has.

      Delete
  11. Also, I just noticed this from Ladybuggin's channel:

    "Yeah him and his girl have been a couple for near 2 years now. Shes' a pretty awesome women. Very glad they are together. Before Utube I was taking care of my sick Mother. She was dying of cancer and was 87 years old. God rest her soul. She was very proud of Christopher and actually loved his Haunted Investigator's work as he had one episode that actually aired on our local tv channel. I'm divorced, so I no longer have the last name Bores, but we are still very dear friends. There are 4 member's Butttttttt I am from a large family, and Christopher's dad is from a large family, so there are lot's and lot's of Aunt's, Uncle's, cousin's, great aunts & uncle's ect. LOL .... Ok, now no more personal question's. From here on in it's only to do with Christopher's IrateGamer persona. We ALL like our privacy so please respect that in the future :D "

    No more Jennifer jokes then =(

    1. Wow, LB said something SENSIBLE? That's rare. Again, I do feel sorry for the guy if this whole "Norman Bates" thing is going on, but if it really is his mom and it's just a misunderstanding... well, I still hate his work, but I do have some amount of sympathy for the guy. Let's see how long it lasts.

      Delete
    2. That post is from Bores. The random capitalization and misspellings are consistent with the writings on his site and what-not.

      Delete
    3. I agree with Keith, that post is from Bores. A rear ago Bores posted that he was going on multiple 1st dates on his 200th video. Why would he be going on 1st dates if he's had a girlfriend for two years. After Bores Bores reviewed his own DVD on Amazon, I don't trust him in the slightest.

  12. Y'know, I'm not one of those "500,000 people can't be wrong" types, because they can. But if that many people are saying the same thing...maybe there is something to it. Maybe your precious darling really is a lying fraud drunk on fame.

    But I don't think LB really is Chris's mom. I think it's just the only persona he could think of for a defender that people might find somewhat believable, while he himself stayed out of all the squabbling because he's above all that.

    Let's keep in mind this is the same guy who's so snide he laughs off critics by claiming they're the minions of a character he made up. My mother sure as hell wouldn't go on youtube and cuss out people telling me my work sucks if I said stuff like that.

    1. I remember this, and my sympathy for the guy goes right out the window. Going... going... gone. Still hoping he gets help, though. He obviously needs it.

    2. I think that IG would be that stupid. If he wanted some sockpuppet to defend him, it should've been a 'fan', not his mom. For someone over 30, that's just pathetic.

      Delete
  13. I wouldn't be surprised at all if LadyBuggin is a sockpuppet account made by IG because this isn't the first time he did such a thing.

    Personally, I strongly believe LadyBuggin IS Bores because remember when he sent a PM reply saying about BatDanNight talking about him to 'point of lunacy'? It indicates that he does read this blog. And after reading this, I now strongly beleive that PM is real.

    And why would a 50-year old mother post immature comments like 'U Mad?' and 'Ballsack' on the Internet? Unless she's a retard, she is truly the most pathetic excuse for a parent ever. And if LadyBuggin continously made comments about BatDanNight, it might actually be Bores himself.

    And if the person's question was deleted from his Facebook account, it's official. He's not hiding anymore. LadyBuggin IS him. And I highly doubt Irate Entertainment has a crew. Why are all the characters in the show all played by Bores then? (Except Wise Sage) Why are all the credit goes to him in every video? Why does all his videos take so long so upload? If he does have a crew, he would be able to finish making and upload videos every week.

    1. It really is the only logical conclusion. Everybody knows it's him now. Even if he denies it, we now see through his little charade. What I'm most curious about is... what will he do now?

      He can't really comment as LB anymore. He might as well leave such comments on his irategamer account for all the good his now transparent guise will do him. Maybe he'll create another sock puppet account?

      Hell, maybe he'll just keep going on with the whole LB thing, ignoring the rather glaring fact we know the truth. Knowing him, this is likely what will happen.

      Delete
    2. If LB is really his mom, then she must have quickly picked up the internet lingo after getting more active in the comments area.

      If it isn't, then wow, this is a far cry from Bores' private message to someone in 2008 about trying to stay away from the e-drama as much as possible. When you're the source of the e-drama it becomes hard not to start moderating and interacting with it at your own discretion.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Answer me this Smart Boy, if the package was for Chris (and for Chris only) then why *she* was the one who recived it in the first place? Something's not exactly right.

      Delete
    2. Kid, you most likely just sent the package to Bores and he just pretended to send it to himself.

      C'mon Johnny, put logic first! Who is his crew? Why did they just suddenly pull this joke now, of all times? If Irate Gamer has a crew, why does it take him months to release content? Also, like everyone else has stated, would a 50-something-year-old really swear and talk in internet memes?

      Also, I saw Chris' update video where he mentions you, no offence, but he sounded totally uninterested when he mentioned you. Yeah, some "friend" you've got there. Oh, and the video was released MONTHS after your video. It's nice to know your "friend" has his priority's straight for his fan...

      Delete
    3. So wait, lemme get this straight:

      >you send a package to Chris
      >Chris' "mother" gets it instead

      Now, this means one of two things:
      1)He lives with his mother, who apparently checks his mail and responds to you as if it were her's. Which actually makes him sound more pathetic (and you're trying to white knight this guy? Don't quit your day job).

      2)The guy lives by himself and is masquerading as his own mother to make himself feel better on the Internet.

      The first option is rather implausible. The second option is the only one that seems to work, especially since we are aware he lives on his own.

      Y'know kid, it's funny how you ignored almost all of my comment except for that one point.

      Besides, why wait? Why until Wrestlemania 28? It's obvious you were just waiting on IG to announce it so people would actually write "PICK ME!!!1!!11!!!" instead of insulting you or arguing with LadyBuggin. Once again, what a nice "friend" you've got their, he really does care...

      Delete
  16. Man, this is getting confusing...

    ... one one hand, Bores did a rather good job at giving LadyBuggin777 her own "style" (even if it makes her sound anything like an actual mother), so I'm not 100% sure if it really is him acting as LB

    ... one the OTHER hand, this would explain why Bores seems to completely ignore LB's existance, even though she seems to be his right hand, choosing winners and blocking "haters".

    2. I don't know what you're talking about, Cody, it seems clear as day to me. That completely vague statement that explains nothing clearly proves we're all wrong about this whole thing.

      ...Sarcasm aside, we have no clue what you're talking about, Hunter. You'll have to explain.

      Delete
    3. I think it was when he sent something to IG I don't know what though. He was talking to LadyBuggin about it on his channel.

      Delete
    4. By that, do you mean Hunter was talking to LB? Or that Bores was communicating to his sock-puppet account with his irategamer account to make his "mother's" account more real-looking? I'm assuming you meant the former, but I don't quite understand.

      Delete
    5. Hunter was talking to her on his account. Or was it her account? Heh, can't seem to remember.

      Fun fact: Hunter won one of Irate Gamer's contests... gee, I wonder why?

      Well, it wouldn't be any off his business if you didn't bring it up.

      Delete
  17. Whether its his mom or just a sockpuppet either way this kind of damage control is very insecure and unprofessional.

    If I were to comment on even an IGN article saying "Hey it's Dance Central, not Dance Party", they might respond with "Thanks, we'll correct it" and update the article. This was brought up in the comments of the E3 video and LB responded with "why does the spelling matter?" Tsk tsk. If it's Chris Bores he should have not made the problem worse. If it's his mom he should tell his mom "You're ruining my image!"

    This guy needs a PR manager real bad. Why not get Steve Masters to moderate the YouTube stuff, or one of his staff? Irate Gamer's business is a one-man army, he's apparently fighting all his battles himself, and it's really getting to him when he cannot contain all the pressure of getting a better image for himself.

    1. By the way do you think he also has the account shared with that troll that copies BatDan's name? I doubt there's a personal connection between him and IG.

      But I gotta wonder why he's uploading videos with random movie and TV clips and naming them after Nostalgia Critic's reviews.

  19. I'm willing to bet that LadyBuggin777 is a Norman Bates type deal, an extra account that Bores set up to block any and all criticism of him. Even if she is the real deal; I'm glad that I never had to deal with her when I got blocked. All I really said was that IG was dating himself when he kept referring to Dr. Eggman as "Robotnik" in the Sonic Unleashed video.

    1. I still call him "Robotnik." Grew up doing that.

  20. Is there any other evidence that LB might be Chris Bores himself?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Norman Bores is looking creepier than ever.

    ReplyDelete
  22. So apparently pointing out the obvious fact that Bores has never once given credit to any alleged crew counts as "grasping at straws". At least if batdamn is to be believed. Also, calling us retards counts as logic.

    8. @pohger Imagine if Bores did review "Action 52" and "accidentally" used Silent Rob's jokes (Elton John heads on "Non Human", dick jokes on "Micro Mike", etc). I bet Silent Rob would make an hour long rant with over 9000 f-bombs about it.

      Delete
    9. I imagine Bores would try to take the same route as the Video Game Roundup and cram the review as short as possible by giving very little detail to each game on Action 52.

  35. On one of his recent Punchout videos, can't remember which of the 3 it was, someone asked Bores something, and and Ladybuggin' replied something along the lines of "what I meant when I said blah", i replied to this with "hey chris, looks like you are replying under your fake mom account" Ladybuggin replied "this "fake mom" business is so 5 years ago everyone knows i am really his mom". Wish i could cut and paste the actual exchange, but I just looked for it and it is gone.
