    I don’t even know how many videos they have on YouTube without Looking, but I’m guessing if he got told 200 videos has to vanish over night just for starters I doubt that will go down too well.

    Does YouTube keep copies of what’s been uploaded and then deleted?

    I'm pretty certain they will do, in the event that anything needs to be used as evidence. Like with all data though, there's probably an expiration period.

    I hope I'm misinterpreting you, but just because somebody "looks creepy" or is single doesn't make them an abuser.

    We're going down a dangerous path if we suddenly start judging people based on nothing but our own prejudices.

    Exactly. Remember there was a murder case where an ex teacher was accused and everyone came out and said how creepy he was and not surprised - totally innocent. Was a drama about it on ITV.

    Ahh yes, Christopher Jefferies.

    Going back to my schooldays here, but as a teacher of mine always said "never assume, it makes an ASS out of U and ME"

    Fully agree however there are at least 3 people with theme park worldwide accused of abusive behaviour so it isn't just that there are random creepy people who are around tpw - they have accusations ranging from abusive behaviour to sexual assaults to rape from over 30 different individuals

    But what the accused have done is not related to how they look, how they come across or whether they're single or otherwise. People should be judged by their actions not our own preconceptions.

    In his Thorpe vlog he said where he'd be today.

    Strange, as people have been asking him on Twitter and he's been avoiding the question. Not sure whether this is to prevent people from following him to a park though? I believe the vlog only went up at some point this morning.

    I'm amazed people are still watching his vlogs with everything that's going on though.

    Well if I wasn't for this thread I wouldn't know anything was going on, so it seems reasonable to assume a good chunk of the audience don't either. It's not necessary a sign that everyone has decided it's a non-issue.

    I mean, it's plastered all over Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as well as here, so I think the vast majority of his followers will be aware that something is amiss - especially given as a certain regular "guest star" hasn't been appearing on his vlogs.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not telling people not to watch his vlogs, I'm simply saying I'm surprised so many have.

    There are people who aren't glued to social media who will have easily missed it.
    There are people who blindly follow the channel and brown nose Shawn to the end of the earth; downplaying the allegations and pledge their support no matter what.
    There are people who watch the vlogs who won't realise that in the small number of videos made since the allegations began that something is afoot.

    It's not unreasonable to realise that there are fewer people who have heard of the allegations and what is occurring than the quantity that has heard.

    Oh I get what you're saying, believe me.

    TPW has a unique fanbase, unlike no other I've ever seen or witnessed with any hobby or interest. The vast majority are absolutely obsessed.

    People are constantly poking and prodding questions at him on social media "where's x", "where's y", "when are you next visiting x". Personally, I couldn't cope with all that.

    From what I've seen on Twitter alone, hundreds are choosing to either ignore or blatantly deny any of the allegations. That, for me, is the concerning part.

    I'm an acquaintance with a female TPW mega fan who often super chats when he does the live streams- I was horrified at how she dismissed all allegations against Shawn and his group, insisting on their angelic purity and that the accusers where liars and sexualy promiscuous "haters" who wanted to damage the brand

    Ahh yes, "haters". That's a word I've seen a lot of the last few days.

    Theme Park Worldwide has:
    • 227K subscribers on YouTube
    • 19K followers on Twitter
    • 31K followers on Facebook
    I think it's entirely reasonable that people who watch his content on YouTube are unaware of the allegations. I am subscribed to loads of channels on YouTube but if there was a scandal involving one of them, it's unlikely I would ever know about it unless I heard about it from another source. I don't follow the gossip of my YouTube channels on other social media channels.

    However what might be interesting is when the others that appear in the content, including some who are regulars, suddenly stop appearing. That might cause viewers to ask or search out the answers.

    As my comment earlier I think if they got told they had to remove over 200 videos I’m pretty sure quite quickly people would question why.

    Yeah I doubt all the "haters" "you're just jealous" idiots have read through the whole thread of 30+ accusations. If they have done their research and still bang that drum then I find that deeply concerning.
