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.
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.
