Just had a read. Obviously I'm going to remain neutral (we all should), but yikes.
I watched through the whole stream. People mentioned the allegations in the chat frequently, one person left a superchat (donation) with a message about the allegations that was deleted very quickly. Shaun did not mention the allegations in the livestream and continued as usual.Surely they would've known before the stream went live that people would ask about the allegations? Plus people probably asked in the chat why they were deleting them, which woudn't have helped.
as there have been multiple allegations of the sexual harassment of underage girls by members of Theme Park Workdwide YouTube channel. Can you guarantee that visitors like my daughter will be safe when we next visit?
Those accusations have nothing to do with the pending investigation so far as I’m concerned the longer he lets them keep being shared and not speaking out about them the worst it will get.The thing that could make it especially bad for them is that there are even seemingly allegations (not of sexual harassment, of different things) against Shawn himself. For example, the first allegation of racism and the allegation to do with autistic people are both squarely against Shawn himself and not anyone else on the channel.
The parks may decide that TPWW doesn’t fit with their friendly family safe environment and refuse entry / photography while allegations are being investigated.Do we think that the parks could potentially take any action against Shawn or the channel in light of these allegations?
They are still serious allegations, however, whether they are to do with the investigation or not. The key issue here seems to be abuse, harassment and hurtful actions within the TPW community in general, and I do think that allegations of various forms of abuse against Shawn himself are unfortunately related to that.Those accusations have nothing to do with the pending investigation so far as I’m concerned the longer he lets them keep being shared and not speaking out about them the worst it will get.
Ooh, that’s interesting. Did they previously follow TPW? If so, then that could be a definite sign of them trying to distance themselves. I don’t know whether I’m looking into it too much, however...I think I saw someone mention that Towers has unfollowed TPWW on twitter which if true shows they are distancing themselves.
I'm not sure how they can respond. I think it's somewhat unfair to drag the parks into this. You're asking them to take sides in a dispute that they're not party to and which is subject to potential legal action.I’ll be very, very intrigued to see how Towers and the other parks respond...

It’s going to get worse and worse over the next few weeks unless they do the right thing and put out a statement or just go offline for a few weeks to let it cool down.The allegations keep pouring in, I’m afraid... a new one was put on there not long ago.
Buckle up, because I think the next few days could be nasty...
