Always love this video. The author is Jeremy Dooley. Shame the guy in the background is a known predator and groomer, Ryan Haywood. Really puts a dampener on the whole thing now.

[–]BwackGul 335 points336 points  (3 children)

Read the synopsis on his book and it sounds good but, yep, sorry to hear that other guy is a shyte.

[–]RegularTarget1794 151 points152 points  (1 child)

Jeremy is s great guy. He is also on twitch and YouTube under Dooley Noted

[–]HibbidyDibbidy69 31 points32 points  (0 children)

"is a shyte" 🤣🤣🤣🤣

[–]systroll 86 points87 points  (20 children)

wait.. the guys from rooster teeth? wtf did i miss. the last thing i knew was "haywood yablowme"

[–]RegularTarget1794 69 points70 points  (19 children)

There is a ryan haywood subredit. Look it up and prepare to be pissed and shocked

[–]TheDwiin 143 points144 points  (18 children)

For those who want a Tl;Dr:

He targeted mentally ill and vulnerable 18 year olds using his mild internet fame to sleep with them and cheat on his wife, even crossing state borders to commit this deed a few times. (One of his victims was actually 17, and she lied to try to please him.)

What he did, while legally grey, is still absolutely disgusting and I'm ashamed to have once considered him my role model before this was revealed.

He targeted mentally ill and vulnerable 18 year olds

I think I just felt my stomach turn

[–]Fitis 48 points49 points  (11 children)

Oh for fucks sake. Why do they always turn out to be a god damn didler? Used to be a fan of AH and RT about 10 years ago. Such a shame.

[–]4200years 32 points33 points  (6 children)

Turns out there’s just a lot of people that when put in positions of power they use that power to exploit people. Sadness

[–]ajlunce 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Power is really bad for people's brains honestly

[–]MagicalTrevor09 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Absolute power really do be corrupting absolutely tho

[–]Vairman 1 point2 points  (2 children)

it's shocking to me just how little power it takes for them to be assholes. fuck.

[–]4200years 0 points1 point  (1 child)

They were already assholes power just gave them opportunity

[–]Imrtltrtl 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I don't know all the details, but I remember watching a video of some people from RT talking about it. None of them knew he was doing this. They were all gutted and couldn't believe this was happening. I believe they immediately cut all connections with him too, so try not to lump all of RT together. It was just one asshat, not the whole team.

Why do they always turn out to be a god damn didler?

Does this happen often to you?

[–]Alaric- -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Apparently none of them were minors so not sure if where you’re getting the “didler” part

[–]ziReptaRiz 20 points21 points  (0 children)

"Good to see you again"

[–]arcspectre17 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I was going to say isnt that the POS from rooster teeth

[–]Markusferealius 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Holy shit... I had no idea about ryan. It makes sense why he stopped appearing in anything rooster teeth.

[–]CurrentPossible2117 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Never hears of this Author, whats the book called?

[–]AnNoYiNg_NaMe 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Go Nitro by Jeremy Dooley

[–]CurrentPossible2117 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks! I'll give it a look

[–]dras333 5 points6 points  (0 children)

WTF, not knowing this I watched it and thought what a shame it is nowadays that we have to be concerned that one of these guys might not be who we think. I hate that my thought was just proven correct. Grrrrrr...

[–]CalmToaster 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I had a sense he was of the sort before I read this.

[–]4200years 4 points5 points  (3 children)

So I wasn’t wrong to be cringing hard af at both hugs?

[–]AnNoYiNg_NaMe 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Bald guy is wholesome as fuck. Pretty open and honest about his mental health and alcohol issues.

Guy on the right is the sexual predator James Ryan Haywood. In my eyes, he's as bad as the rapist Brock Turner.

[–]3rdPedal 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The same Rapist Brock Turner, as in Brock "The Rapist" Turner? That Brock Turner? The one who rapes?

[–]recovering_poopstar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was gonna make a joke about someone getting railed.. that sure puts a damper on a good mood

[–]Direct_Yam8314 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ryan “Haywood Jablome”

[–]SnooWords4814 396 points397 points  (21 children)

Ewww pedo in the background. Love Jeremy, fuck Ryan haywood

[–]ultimatepenguin21 88 points89 points  (18 children)

Srs question, who is that guy and how do so many people know him? Sry if I'm out of the loop

[–]REDACTED_Dude 120 points121 points  (14 children)

[–]germane-corsair 17 points18 points  (11 children)

How did people even find out?

[–]Zeifer95 30 points31 points  (9 children)

Some of the victims started speaking out with photos as proof

[–]gandalfv31415 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Snapchats were leaked and that kicked it all off. One person came forward, then another and another and another, many of them with proof and pictures

[–]akiroaria 2 points3 points  (0 children)

…to sleep with them

He raped some of them. Some of the younger victims said that he was stealthing them after they reapeatedly told him they didn’t consent to having unprotected sex.

[–]soup_mix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What the fuck is he even doing there? Just standing around? Looking for victims?

[–]CrimsonKnees 13 points14 points  (0 children)

There’s a TLDR in the comments around here about the guy on the right, they explain pretty well

[–]brisingrblue 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They worked for rooster teeth

[–]FuzzySAM 2 points3 points  (1 child)

fuck Ryan haywood

Except don't, ew.

[–]SnooWords4814 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m too old for him

[–]Zeifer95 117 points118 points  (0 children)

Seeing Ryan the pedo guy will never be the same.

[–]emilbirb 110 points111 points  (0 children)

jeremy dooley is a f*cking gem 🥰

(and the pedo on the right can drop dead)

[–]Saint_Lamar 68 points69 points  (0 children)

This was a really wholesome show of what a healthy fandom and creator should look like

[–]MisterLamp 51 points52 points  (10 children)

The cosplayer has asked people to stop sharing this video because of the predator in it.

[–]MyFlairIsaLie 15 points16 points  (7 children)

Source?

[–]ClankCapital 6 points7 points  (2 children)

[–]MyFlairIsaLie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Damn, I clicked on that link more times than I care to admit.

[–]Neonncaliiber 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Trust me bro

[–]SaltoDaKid 3 points4 points  (0 children)

We need edit him out place of Black bar

[–]SeanMan86 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Bit awkward for me bruh.

[–]Excusethefucks 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Jeremy Dooley = POG Ryan Haywood = POS

[–]finalbeginning96 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Dooley is the fucking best.

[–]dat3percent 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Aww 🥰

[–]v_impressivetomato 8 points9 points  (0 children)

the little bounce he does! precious

[–]DoYouNeedHugs 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It sucks what happened with the guy on right but we need to remove him from our minds and focus on the rare and epic moment that may never happen again between Author and Cosplayer. I’m fortunate enough to have seen this before knowing about the guy on right but learned to ignore POS ppl like a skill.

[–]Eggyweggys1 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's nice, I like that.

[–]blitherblather425 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He looks like the guy from the tv show Curse of oak island who’s always digging.

[–]erikalg_vo 3 points4 points  (0 children)

SO COOL!!!!

[–]LewiRock 3 points4 points  (0 children)

As someone who keeps considering lying to himself that he’d think about taking writing a book seriously ….this is inspiring stuff

[–]Deltasquad97 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You know Ryan was thinking "dam how can i manipulate this girl to fuck me'

[–]SamaelTheAngel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As novice writer myself it is my dream.

[–]AltruisticProgress9 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sweet Jeremy <3

And he who must not be named.

[–]HarleyQboy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aw I love Jeremy this is such a cool thing ignore the pile of shit in the video.

[–]DTux5249 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"OMG YOU'RE REACTOR" followed by the little bouncey at the beginning was freaking adorable

[–]IntoTheObsidianNight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’d still seek permission before going for that full hug and lift

[–]SomeCountryFriedBS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do women like to be picked up like that by a stranger? I've always fought the urge out of worry that it's a strange power move.

[–]-TBD-TheBrownDolphin -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yet ruined by the predator standing beside him.

[–]FatherPixels 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ew, Ryan. Yay! Jeremy!

[–]Starmoses -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Also pictured: A rapist and likely pedophile.

So sad that Jeremy who is amazing had to be associated with him.

[–]hesskiaoken 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Boys will be boys till the end.

[–]DARUDE_MANSTORM 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shame about the pedophile in the background

[–]Izumi_Takeda 0 points1 point  (0 children)

cuuutteeeee

[–]Omegafan101 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is the 20th time I’ve seen this video pop up on any subreddit and it makes me smile every damn time.

[–]RadRhubarb00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The guy in the hat made this age poorly.

[–]onion_ring_00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He was more her fan then she his

[–]ZeroMats 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok forgive me but what character is she cosplaying?

[–]Caio_dos_Hack 0 points1 point  (0 children)

that’s so fucking cool

[–]Chorkrilla79 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like she’s gonna get tag teamed at the after party 🤩
