Last year I backed a project by a youtuber that I used to respect named Mr.CreepyPasta, aka Spike Edmond. The project was a Creepypasta themed comic book to be written by himself and another horror author, Vincent V. Cava. They raised over $25k for the project, campaign completed June 2016. Since then, most, if not all backers have recieved nothing they were promised. MCP posts no updates on Kickstarter to update on why the rewards are not their, then snaps at people on his Twitter when asked when they are coming. Every single time he has been asked on Twitter, he responds that "the hardcovers are printing". It takes a year to print hardcovers? I find that hard to believe. And in the mean time, he's managed to release not one..but TWO of his "own" paperback books through Amazon and Barnes and Nobles. I say his "own", because he didn't even write any of the stories in his two books. He's taken stories from other authors, slapped his name and image on the front of the book, and is selling them for profit. Another scam. All while his comic book supporters sit here waiting on their $25k investment to be rewarded. If the printing is taking so long, you would think that maybe he'd use some of that $25k to hire another printer that could get the job done, since so many people are waiting, right? Nah. Instead he's taken numerous friviously trips (that he flaunts on Twitter and instagram) to Vegas and Disneyworld with his new wife. Who, coincidentally, he asked his viewers for money for to buy a ring to propose with. Even though he makes thousands of dollars a month on youtube. (If you want proof, he admits to it in his Draw my Wife video). I was bothered by that when it happened, but I loved his content. Now, looking back. I don't know why I supported him at that point.
So here we are. A youtuber who scams his viewers out of thousands of dollars to pay for his personal vacations, his engagement rings, and funding for his other scam projects. ("His" books.) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/209610683/creepypasta?ref=project_tweet
This is the project. You can see by the comments on it that people are getting angrier by the day.
