what happened with Gus?


u/[deleted] Jan 25 '23

He was apparently a dick to his ex GF (she was in a lot of his skits) when she had a very dangerous miscarriage.

That whole deal is a mess. A bunch of he said/she said, and both of them look worse off for it. She said that he wouldn't go to couples therapy, he showed texts that proved he was fine and that she could pick out the therapist, etc etc.

It was something that should've been done in private, but they aired it out for all to see.

So he didn't really do anything unusually wrong and this is just the typical break up drama that happens in every relationship that should have ended years before it did?

No, he definitely didn't act appropriately and deserved criticism but nowhere near the amount he received considering how grey the situation was.

His ex also behaved questionably to the point where I have a hard time taking her word at face value, especially when you hear both sides of the story.

If he hadn't been a prolific youtuber at the time the situation wouldn't have been anything worse than small town gossip fodder.
