Tonight, Twitter bronies got to play audience to an absolute meltdown by an up-and-coming brony musician by the name of "Aoshi". The musician, who played a set at Trotcon this month, became infuriated at Ponyville Live for posting an unedited video of his performance at the convention (as was their duty). He began to accuse the group of "slander" and demanded the video to be taken down. It spiraled downward from there.
The exchange continued with Aoshi claiming that PVL was out to "sabotage" his "reputation".
Then he compared them to 4chan.
|Dammit! Why won't it read!?|
He admitted he didn't read what he signed, but went on to claim that the "humiliation" he felt was the fault of PVL.
Then he went the full monty and threatened legal action against the organization.
This did not go well for Aoshi as outsiders began to point out that the only person at fault here, was him.
Whether these events are directly linked, we do not know. But we do know that he ACTUALLY APOLOGIZED for his ridiculous behavior and even offered to donate to PVL to compensate them for their lost time.
And he also didn't think we had these saved.
Did he properly atone for his actions? Do you think he finally learned the definition of "slander"? For the sake of our readers we will provide the dictionary definition of "slander" to you here.
Other musicians found the whole thing rather amusing.
UPDATE: A /mlp/ Auto-archiving bot had downloaded the video of Aoshi's set from the PVL youtube account before it was deleted. A user edited the footage and uploaded it. You can see it below.
