From Peachy Fennec:

"Thread warning: This is a serious twitter thread about pedophilia and abuse
Okay, so what can I say about @ToonKriticY2K, well lets see, maybe that he made my teen years a living hell? That he manipulated the people he claimed he loved? Lets start at the beginning. 
I met him through a few friends and to be honest i met some great friends that i still talk and love to this day from being in his group, but it wasn't long before he'd hit on me constantly and ask my partner at the time for nudes of me which, at the time contained a 17 y/o me. 
He'd hurt the people he loved, he claimed he loved me as a brother yet hurt me as if I was an enemy, aside from numerous hurtful jokes he also asked a later partner of mine for nude pics while I was in a closed relationship with her and later asked another partner if they rp'd. 
As the years went on i became more and more sick of his antics which he would blame on his autism a LOT, which was odd because most the people in that group were also autistic. I lost my father around my first year of highschool and thats about when I had enough of him. 
While dealing with grief i had to deal with him hitting on my girlfriend at the time while he neglected his, she'd always come to me because he'd manipulate her feelings and god i just got so pissed at him at that point, I broke contact with him not long after. 
Despite his actions almost driving me to suicide several times, i never wished anything wrong to happen to him, i kept my mouth shut about his abuse while his "career" grew on youtube, afraid of coming off as petty or even seen as the bad guy. 
I feel deeply for others who have been affected by him and id love to lend an ear to others who had the misfortune of dealing with him. I know im far from the worst case but I wanted people to know that ANYONE can be manipulated and almost driven to death. 
I doubt you're reading this, but Zack, you made my life hell despite you seeing me as a "brother". I held this all in because i KNEW FOR A FACT you would try to paint yourself as a victim, you make me sick. You don't deserve the fame or friends you had, the opportunities you had. 
please, if you're a victim and need someone to talk to im always open to talk to anyone. Please take care and im sorry for this serious post on this mostly light hearted twitter page but this needed to be said. 
If anyone has any questions regarding my statements about @ToonKriticY2k then please either contact me via telegram (https://t.me/PeachyFennec ) or by twitter DMs"

The community continues to deal with the implications of these allegations, as it becomes more and more apparent that the incidents in question are not isolated in nature. Additionally, it is becoming clear that those close to predators in the community are willing to overlook their transgressions and shield offenders from repercussions. We will continue to collect, analyse, and expose any and all details that we find as these stories develop.

  1. It's amazing how many in the brony analysis community were shielding Toon from facing justice such as Ilovekimpossible, DrWolf and Joshscorcher. These people are just as guilty as Toon in my opinion and have probably only helped in him sexually abusing more girls in the meantime while they sat on their hands and did nothing about this.

    The brony analysis community is now rotten to its core and needs to be completely purged.

    1. They can't even get their story straight, in their so called "statement" video on each of their respective channels. They all claim different information about what they knew and did.

      At least their priorities are straight:
      - Notify everyone in the analysis community (those who knew toon were naturally told first, before the others)
      - Notify con staff of toon's actions
      - Contact toon about his actions
      - Notify the authorities
      If not public:
      - Make a cover-up story for toon's absence
      If public:
      - Make conflicting statements and still have every follower support and agree with you (oh also gotta make that YouTube money, monetise said video)
      - Block those who call you out on your lies or straight up don't believe you.

      Does that sound about right?

    2. Yeah fuck that community I burned my bliss plushie and any art I bought from those creeps oh I can't wait till their not famous anymore then no one will give a shit about them. U people are right they are a toxic community.it is just sad they were covering all this up to protect their horse fame. From what I hear toon is still out their being cuddled by his parents and therapist. Which is why he closed all his accounts down. I think he is moving on to the furry cons so he can do the same thing

      Delete
    3. Which is why we need to continue to make mouse about this so the victims can get justice and to warn other in other communities of him so no more suffer the same fate.

      Also fuck DrWolf for monotizing his video on this subject. That is some scummy shit.

    4. @4:25: Is there a compilation of their thoughts regarding the issue? Kind of curious how bad the conflicting statements are.

      @6:19: Really? That's pretty fucking low if he did.

    5. Yup, DrWolf's video is monetized.

    7. I've not seen ads on the recent view but I am still seeing the yellow ad marker at the beginning.

    8. I heard Josh (I'm not being a fanboy of him or anything) actually called the cops immediately after it was revealed that Toon was the monster he was: http://joshscorcher.tumblr.com/post/170130755532/as-someone-who-hates-this-sort-of-thing-with-a

    9. I call bullshit on that. Josh himself said that he and the rest of the community "tried to deal with it in-house". Yeah you don't deal with something illegal like that. He only begrudgingly called the cops to cover his own ass. That and he was probably sweating after soliciting a minor himself.

  3. Look, I'm all for incinerating the analyst community to the ground. They're all scum.
    But.
    >nudes of me which, at the time contained a 17 y/o me
    Don't take nudes of yourself when you're underage. No reason to.
    Actually, don't take nudes of yourself, at all. You're just asking for things like the Fappening.

  4. Yeah okay
    Not that I'm defending that Toon asshole (he should be put in jail AS WELL as the one who knew about him and protected him, aka his "friends"), but to have it called an experience, we will need évidences. At this point, anyone can come up with anything. Don't you have screen proving that this story is true?

    1. Not every crime has recorded evidence, that doesn't make the criminal less guilty. What if the solicitation and harassment was done verbally without a paper trail? Does that make it invalid?

      The fact he said that Zak asked the partner for the photos lends to the credibility. Fennec has already produced a witness who could be called upon to verify the claims

    2. This "pics or it didn't happen bro" is an absolutely fucking terrible approach to this subject matter. It is attitudes like this that allowed a predator and god knows how many others to operate with impunity for so long. I am not advocating for "listen and believe" that is also bullshit, but when you have many voices crying about the same thing, for years, it is at least worth looking into and finding out if there fire along with the smoke.

      Simply brushing these issues aside and silencing people because they are starting "drama" is deplorable and never should of happened. Sadly it seems the community has not learned its lesson and people are already trying to sweep this all under the rug. Particularly the bronalysis who had no plans to make Toon's misconduct public and are doing everything in there power to come off as the victims in all this to garner sympathy and obfuscate their roles in things getting as bad as they did.

    3. There is actual evidence in the chat logs of him soliciting the minor, which could put him in jail.

  5. WHOA-WHOA-the brony analysis community had nothing to do with this. Toon dug his own grave, enough with the death threats, christ.

    1. There's the guilty by association aspect of law that makes things difficult to assess. If these brony analysts, a group that Toon is a major part of and possibly a front for, knew or associated with him there's no telling who all would be affected with this.

      Our fandom doesn't self moderate, sadly.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, probably because the internet is nothing but mindless rage right now. Welcome to the second month of the new year, enjoy your stay.

      Delete
    3. Death threats? What death threats? And are you seriously that naive. Again and again we here how his little clique was fully aware of Toon's misconduct and again and again did nothing about it, turning a blind or playing dumb. Sure, him targeting minors for his manipulation and sexual deviancy was the step too far they knew they couldn't ignore, but that is purely a legal technicality. The others Toon targeted that are not minors are still all victims of this unacceptable behavior.

  6. I've been listening to the audio of the playlist. Too many describe narcissistic traits like 'always being positive', 'living in one's world' and implicitly treating others like tools.

  7. This is all I see in the comment section:

    "Hi A-Log,"

    "Oh hi, A-Log"

    on constant repeat.

    1. What's A-log?

    2. It's a term referring to people who believe that they're morally superior to someone else. It's also used to describe people who threaten others with death.

  8. I've been trying to listen to that playlist and I just can't. These people can't string a sentence together, or read naturally from a script. They're supposed to be entertainers?

    1. The fandom has always had low standards, not to mention I've stopped being able to listen about nearly halfway through the playlist. It's terrible and too repetitive.

    2. It's funny y'know? This "fandom" or "community" as the analysts try to claim it as such. They just cant't seem to let go of the fact that it's long past it's glory days. These people are so full of themselves that they think that telling a slimeball like this toon guy, "Hey you need to turn yourself in or we'll do it for you" was going to have some kind of resolve.

      It's also funny that they think that anouncing on they're channels that they had then disowned him soon after finding out that he was a pedophie. Heres the thing, when they all simotaneuosly post a a video as to why they want nothing to do with him doesn't help them in any way, if anything it makes them all look like spineless cowards who only have their own self interest in mind.

      I've read some of the comments left by other youtubers on some of those channels and I was disgusted with what I saw. These very same people such as Dr. Wolf,Thespio, and a few others whom I can't recall at this time. Are pulling the very same shit tha this Toon guy was pulling.

      "Oh I feel betrayed, I've known him for so many years"

      "I felt so lost for so many days after I found out"

      These people in my honest opinion are no better than Toon, minus the pedophillia. They don't give two shits about the people he's victimized just so as long that it doesnt affect them. So now they're trying to reach out to anyone and everyone who will listen to their pleas of forgiveness. If these people actually cared as much as they say they do they should'nt be posting videos of themselves talking like their hands aren't dirty. Because they had every oportuniy to stop this creep when they had the chance, but didn't because they didn't want to run the risk of tarnishing their squeekie clean reputaions. "To Hell with human decency! My horse fame is on the line!"

      Well we've all pretty much seen how this is all going to unfold. They had an oppertunity at redeeming themselves but chose to turn a blind eye to the suffering of others and now have to deal with the consequences of their own actions.

      If these people, these analysists, had any shred of human decency left in them they should each apologize to the victims themselves for not stopping Toon sooner.

    3. What you've described is a narcissistic personality. They're not good people and for whatever reason this fandom attracts such personality (maybe it's because it's MY Little Pony, who knows). People who only care about themselves, their own interests and are damn happy to throw people under the bus if it taints their perfect image.

      Honestly I've the exact same situation pan out 5 years ago just in another community. Only difference was being the scapegoat I was exiled from the fandom for a year. So none of this surprises me say the least.

      This fandom died once it became 'mainstream' back in 2012. Not a quick one but just a long prolonged decline to where looking back at old YTPs my sibling and I were watching yesterday you can definitely tell things were a lot better before the fandom organized and destroyed itself quickly.
