You don't like him? I tried the fault in our stars (the book) and it didn't interest me

I mean he seems smart and generally nice, but it's really creepy to me that he intentionally builds a cult of insecure teenage girls. It doesn't really become apparent until you've followed him on social media and then you realize how much time he spends trying to be relatable to underage girls, which is kind of weird for 40 something-year-old man? People on tumblr either love him or hate him, and it's become a real flame war between him and the latter. Mostly people make fun of him for trying so hard to be cool and appealing to teens, but there was a big controversy lately when someone called him out on basically pandering to the vulnerability of teenage girls and having a creepy social media presence and he freaked out and somehow twisted that into an accusation of pedophilia and then all his fans and a few famous authors jumped on this poor girl for allegedly accusing him of pedophilia, which she never actually did. It was so ridiculous

What a mess, but it's not a surprise he tries to appease teenage girls, they usually make the most passionate fans

Omg, I didn't know all that. I read The fault in our stars and I loved it, but yeah it's bit creepy how many authors try to look like they're still teenagers these days.
It reminds me of JB

I used to regularly watch the Vlogbrothers on YT, (still sometimes do) and I never really got the vibe back then that he was pandering but then I never followed him on any other site so maybe he comes across as different on his blogs.
I never knew about that girl though :S bit weird, though there was a point where lots of famous youtubers were called out for manipulation (and in some cases rape) of vulnerable fans so maybe he thought he would be dragged into that? (Not trying to justify everyone calling out the poor girl though).


OMG Freya

I'm conflicted because I actually really like a lot of his YouTube videos and he's really intelligent, but on tumblr he just acts weird and desperate I can't describe it is just really weird?

Hmm, I'll make sure I stay away from his tumblr then :L

Maybe he does just have Tumblr fever like everyone else seems to get it seems to bring the desperation out in people
