Do we think that the parks could potentially take any action against Shawn or the channel in light of these allegations?
If this gets much bigger, I think Shawn could be forced into doing something other than hiding the messages. He may have to make an actual statement on his social media channels. There’s only so big that you can let something like this get; I’ve heard of internal dramas from within TPW before (for example, when Dean left the channel in 2016, and I’ve heard that Shawn’s departure from Alton Towers may not have been as civil as some might believe.), but I’ve never seen anything quite on this scale before and quite this serious.
I reckon from a PR point of view that they would not be so keen on being associated as much as before these allegations were brought to light.
In most circumstances, brands are quick to distance themselves from controversy whether it is sufficiently evidenced or not.
