Nope.

Cared about is a big word, but yes, I was starting to watch Jared's content with more regularity when all that happened. (Which I guess means "Miss Editor" was lost over that) I did resubscribe today because of the FFV video.

Otherwise, it seems the Yogscast lost a few members during the few Civ games I had not watched, which I only learned towards the end of the "Lewis's Balanced Map" series, Caff and Sjin to cancel culture. Which kinda turned it even more into the Lewis and "friends" show.

The only thing that comes to mind is The Ranch. I was BARELY into that show and when the brother, cant remember the character's or actor's name, was "killed off" I lost all interest in the show and haven't watched an episode since.

That's about as obscure as being extremely important in the Speed Croquet community. If you're not a part of it, that means basically fuck all.

"Free as in freedom, not as in 'Free beer'."

What this has translated to, at least to me however, is basically the digital equivalent of a hippie commune.

Yeah. He was brought back because all the stars wanted him back. Probably Disney, too. I heard they might have fired him with the intention of bringing him back once the outraged fans calmed down or whatever...

Thats such a load of bullshit. Fans jerk off way too hard to their fantasies.

Disney knee jerked and it wasnt until they saw the possibility of it affecting their bottom line they brought him back.

I think they tried with Ricky Gervais when he hosted the Emmy's or whatever it was, but that didn't really fly and he hilariously mocked those idiots in his latest stand up special.

I don't know of it counts as cancel culture, but a metal vocalist I like was accused of rape, which caused his band to split up and form a new one without him, then later the girl took back her accusation and apologized... #MeToo motherfucker
