So in the responce letter that CA put out, they included a chatlog in order to show the world they took action after allegations arose from a Jane Doe about a former producer "grooming" the young lady and sexually assaulting her.  The former producer, who wasn't named in the Not So Awesome google doc, turned out to be JewWario.

https://www.reddit.com/r/ChannelAwesome/comments/8bqrhw/whats_all_this_about_jewwario_now/

And it was further confirmed by both the Jane Doe in question and Holly, the former HR department for CA.

Ironbite-thanks Mike....next time run your shit by a lawyer first.

I didn't believe it when I saw it last night since I had stumbled on a tweet by Metokur (aka Internet Aristocrat, a known shit stirrer and white nationalist whose audience came from GamerGate and is known to have made false allegations about Channel Awesome producers in the past), but Holly has coroborated the allegations. And now i want to drown myself in whiskey.

Also, I know he's not reading this, but apologies to LordKaT for assuming he was the one the account was referring to.

Apparently there ere actually 2 Jane Does, the one on reddit clarified she tried to talk to Lupa (the one producing the document) and she didn't see her story so it didn't make it into the document. The one in the document was the one Justin had influenced to have sex with him using his popularity, and the 2nd one on reddit is the one he just straight up raped.

That...puts certain things into perspective.  The fact its been verified by a third party is pretty fuckin' damning.  Makes ya wonder who else knew about this shit.

For the record: Channel Awesome is down to two non-Doug producers: Brad Jones and Guru Larry. Gaming Wildlife announced their departure on Twitter and apparently the Blockbuster Buster has also submitted his resignation (not sure where. I assume Patreon because he doesn't appear to be on Twitter). Guru Larry is just taking the piss at this point. He clearly doesn't care about Channel Awesome and he's literally only sticking around to see if Brad leaves first.

...What the hell is going on in there?
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

According to Guru Larry...HE'S THE FINAL PRODUCER AS BRAD HAS LEFT!

Ironbite-drop down still shows him but it's pretty clear he's gone.

Once Doug Walker is the only producer left, do you think they'll change the name back to That Guy with the Glasses?

Oh, and Fredrik "Down the Rabbit Hole" Knudsen is doing another livestream on the matter tomorrow, this time covering their official response as well as airing some allegedly brand new dirty laundry.

I have to say, I'm enjoying watching this train wreck far more than I've ever enjoyed any of their actual shows since 2010.

So, both bafflingly and unsurprisingly, the GamerGaters and other alt-right types are conspiricizing that Dan Olsen knew about JewWario's actions and that he and Jacob Chapman (who did know and was, in fact, briefly targeted) didn't tell the authorities to try to somehow score a victory against GamerGate.

Leaving the fantasy land these assholes live in, we know that Olsen didn't know at the time of JewWario's suicide and, even when he pieced things together, he didn't know the extent of it until a couple weeks before the Not So Awesome document dropped. It's also likely that Chapman didn't know the extent of things, but even if he did, they were both asked to stay quiet by the victims. The only, I repeat, ONLY evidence that Olsen knew was a Reddit post that, while tragically confirmed to be truthful by Holly, said that the person in question tried to get her story onto the document, but was "ignored." Marzgurl and Holly both claim that they were not approached, while it's probable that Lupa simply missed it in all of the chaos of the last month. The Reddit post does not accuse anyone of knowing while JewWario was still a threat.

I saw Olson's post on SA and have no idea why he would bring up GamerGate in it, it feels very off-topic. I get his argument about not wanting the victims to be hurt by too much online scrutiny, but a counterpoint to that is that hiding things that have already blown up to this point just makes people pay more attention + drags more people into it, as well as the way he said Justin "functionally settled it himself" sounding incredibly callous.

Even though Justin turned out to have been absolutely terrible, it's also very clear he had deep issues and quite possibly felt guilt and remorse (speculation i know, but it's based on the fact he killed himself so I feel like its likely).

It feels like he's trying to dredge up and win some ancient internet argument without actually caring about how Justin's family, friends, and especially his widow feel right now. This Dan guy just rubs me the wrong way.

As I said, he mentioned GamerGate in his statement because GamerGate and their ilk that started the rumor that he covered it up in the first place. They still hold a grudge against him for exposing 8chan's child pornography. Incidentally, it was GamerGaters that got him fired from Channel Awesome.

...What, what in the what now?

a) How the heck do the GG manage to get into every single scandal on the net?

b) How many different aspects are there in this CA thingy? I'm pretty sure that the only thing missing by now is that they had something to do with the new Star wars films...
