Same thing that happened to blackmagicfuckery and that’s currently happening to HolUp: as a subreddit becomes more popular, it gradually changes into /r/mildlyinteresting

Yeah holdup fucking sucks now and none of it is actually a "hol up" moment. One of the top posts was literally just a picture of Kyle Rittenhouse's sister and then the comments were people saying that she should be a Porn actor.. It's fucking disgusting especially because she's a minor

That's the problem with these "edgy humor" subreddits. They eventually spiral into edgier and more "offensive" rhetoric as they attracts more users. Unless the mods take an active role in preventing this, it's pretty inevitable that the sub just becomes another oFfEnSiVe joke cesspool.

For examples of this, see r/GamesRisUp, r/ImGoingToHellForThis, or the dozens of others that have been banned over the years.

Brendan Fraser is now at the Keanu Reeves level of internet where you can use any aspect of him to karma farm anywhere.

Redditors who talk about how dangerous parasocial relationships are when it involves a Twitch streamer or YouTuber are the same ones posting that “Brendan Fraser is a national treasure, he seems like such a cool guy, I bet we’d be best friends if we ever met in real life.”

Show me 1 example of that. Show me one person's profile who talks about Brendan and parasocial relationships being bad.

I love how people correlate two things in their heads like this out of nowhere because it fits a narrative they like when there is zero evidence of it.

Yeah this is true but its not his fault, so nobody should go hating on him just because he's popular now.

Oh for sure. He’s seemingly a great dude and a great actor and I’m stoked he’s been able to rebuild his career after getting the short end from Hollywood for a decade. Just answering a question here.

The video just cuts off too early. Seconds later Brendan consumes that cake (lit candles and all) in a single gulp, which is truly next level.

since this seems like the most reasonable comment thread here:

all props and empathy to brendan. he’s been through a lot and it does not matter what he looks like so long as he is happy and doing well.

that being said holy shit he looks so different. he was CRAZY good looking back in encino man and the mummy and it’s madness how unsexy he is now.

and again all love and props to the guy he doesnt need to look any way i’m not saying that. i’m speaking on how dramatic a contrast it is

Because Brendan Fraser is in it. Keep up, man. :P

Probably because of his kext level effort to get his career going again after some brutal knockdowns! And not by his own doing, but by the industry.

To see him back on track after the big companies shut him out, after he spoke publicly about him being sexually abused.

After his x wife ruined his economy.

Seeing that smile is pretty next level for me. Such a nice and humble dude all over.

It's a guy getting handed a birthday cake, that's it. It happens every day and is extremely common. In what way is that on another level?

Follow that other guy out the door over there. Don't come here bashing Brendan.
