I was tricked into believing that the preview image was VFX's dad.
That would have been cool.
Ugh. Can I get the Coles Notes version of this?
VenomFangX's family thinks he's a douche, much like the rest of the world. And for some reason THIS is the man who they've chosen as their spokesman to tell the world! Instead of, you know, getting Venom some fucking psychological help.
VFX's family are good, decent non-Christians who are as baffled and mortified by their son's conversion into gibbering insanity as you or I would be.
There is also the fact that Shaun might not be right in the head -- not just "not right" in the sense that he's an obsessed fundie idiot, but that he's either *actually retarded* (as opposed to just acting tardtastic) or has some kind of severe mental disorder. His parents have tried in the past to get him professional help, but he took frantic offense at their satanically-trained psychologists and devil-derived chemicals, and nothing good ever came of it.
The most the Karon household has been able to do was kick Shaun out when they found out he was scamming money and using their own resources to help scam more money. They've said that they aren't going to pull their idiot manchild's balls out of the the fire this time, so his rampant filing of fraudulent DMCA's is going to basically ruin him.

What kind of father discusses the mental retardation of his son with a complete stranger?
If you aren't familiar with this bit of youtube drama, it's going to be boring.
Instead of the usual shrieking and footstomping associated with youtube drama, VFX has decided to go legal. Against a lawyer. As I understand he has filed about 200 DMCA notices against various 'evil' people. Filing false DMCAs carries a fine of $25k, apparently. In any case, it's a legal mess, and our intrepid internet evangelist was probably expecting help from daddy, which apparently is no longer forthcoming.
One who has honestly tried, again and again, every possible approach to getting said son straightened out, to the point where he no longer has it in him to really give a shit beyond attempting to keep the family name from being associated with his insane son's shenanigans. He has a law firm and a bunch of other family members to take care of too, you know.

You can tell by the tone of his voice that this is a serious issue.
He touched my peppy.
He is a helper. A helper of families. He works behind the scenes.
I may become a Fundamentalist Christian after watching him. Or maybe a Scientologist. If Venomfangx is the polar opposite of this pompous douche nozzle, I should at least look into it.
Armed with the "resources on religious cults and psychology" that Dr. Owen has provided, can healing and reconciliation be far behind for Hilton's family? I'm sure that beneath Jordan's self-important blathering, his classic hairstyle and wardrobe, and his warming layer of Manatee blubber, there beats the heart of a Licensed Family Therapist with a wealth of credentials and experience. Once he moves his practice from YouTube to a suite of actual offices, he'll be able to quit his day job at Circle K.
Hilton removed his son from the household because he believes differently from his parents. Superb, tolerant parenting, Pops. A similar scene was recently observed in the Phelps household, when Pastor Fred caught his son watching a "Will and Grace" rerun.
But you can rest easy now, Hilton. The internet atheists have landed and the situation is well in hand.
Shawn is a textbook psychopath, pure and simple. If he were to receive "treatment" for his issues, he will only become better at what he does over time. He cannot be humiliated or shamed into being a better human being, because his brain cannot process and react to that sort of information.
I'm glad his parents have decided to let him burn for this.
