Hey, I don’t typically make posts like this, but I feel like I should put my stance on the current situation with Scott Cawthon out here.
I read through Scott’s post on reddit and, while I thought it was just his voting stuff that got leaked, when I read more of the post, I felt, for the first time in a while, true DISAPPOINTMENT. For those who haven’t read it, here’s a link .
The person who made the initial leak said it was just a “joke”, but the thing is: Jokes are supposed to be funny.
Scott got doxxed and I don’t care what someone said or who they voted for, DOXXING IS WRONG, AND IF YOU’VE EVER DONE IT MALICIOUSLY, YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED.
Basically: I read through Scott’s post and I don’t really see him any differently aside from seeing that he’s human and makes mistakes sometimes. I see his viewpoint for some of the stuff that was leaked, but I think doxxing someone over his political viewpoints is sick, twisted, and all around shameful.
Scott’s reddit post covers it fairly well, but basically, my final thoughts?
I still support Scott. He’s been nothing but nice to the community and I look up to him as someone who’s a writer and content creator. If you have a problem with that, go ahead, leave, I really don’t mind. But this whole situation blew up beyond anything that is appropriate and anyone who helped with the doxxing(unless they’ve properly apologized, in which case, this isnt directed towards you) should be ashamed. Basically?
I SUPPORT SCOTT CAWTHON.
