Youtuber Projared was married to Heidi (cosplayer). Ross (of gamegrumps and other stuff) and Holly (cosplayer) were also married.
Last night ProJared posted
and Heidi responded with a (see Grath post)
That was the fun part, but now it looks like PJ has been sending dickpicks to potentially underaged fans for years, as it always winds up being about.
...oof, yeah, there it is: http://dnd.wizards.com/dndlive2019. Jared and Holly are in the first game on the first day. All of the yikes.
Ironically enough, Jared seems to have cultivated the sort of community that doesn't take this sort of thing well, so it's not like he has a core of shitheads to fall back on. Man, what a sequence of bad life decisions.
(Full disclosure, I rather enjoyed J & H's stuff individually before all of this, and it's the last thing I would have expected of either of them, so the whole thing is surreal as heck to me.)
Definitely having an "I am old and completely out of touch" moment here.
There's big money in the notion, though. The most popular series, Critical Role, just kickstarted 11 million for an animated adaptation. They're not directly connected with WotC other than in how they're playing D&D, though. And the players are voice actors (most of them? I don't follow that one), so everyone still has a day job.

Man, I can tell I'm getting old and cantankerous when this is my first reaction.
Is this what Thad feels like all the time? I don't like it.

Bonus: People have been re-sharing the nudes Jared sent them, so you're safe from accidentally seeing a random weirdo's dick pics.
