You wouldn’t think that a YouTuber would take time to slate people who were mourning the death of Christina Grimmie but Onision has managed to do just that. Yesterday we reported on the fact that Onision took time out to criticise people who were using the hashtag #PrayForChristina. According the him, the fact that people were using a religious term wasn’t cool and he went on a huge rant slating Christianity, seemingly overlooking the fact that the hashtag had little to do with religion and everything to do with sending love to Christina’s family.
After news broke that Christina had been fatally shot at the hands of a 27 year old “deranged fan”, Onision continued his tirade and has refused to shut up since. Of course, it’ll come as no surprise to those that know of Onision and his troll-like antics previously, but the fact he used the death of Christina Grimmie to front his latest rant makes us feel uncomfortable to say the least.
Onision had previously slated people for suggesting we pray for Christina and later vented about YouTubers who were tweeting about her death:” “I never knew Christina existed before this, but everyone look at me & how sad I am! Me me me me me!” – Every other YouTuber right now.” Clearly the YouTuber didn’t see tweets from the likes of Shane Dawson who is utterly heartbroken at the loss of his close friend.
And yet, despite all of this, Onision is still ranting about the fact people used the term “pray” in a hashtag which was meant to spread hope. It’s been four days since Christina passed, four days since a family had to cope without their beloved daughter and four days since fans across the globe united in mourning. But Onision hasn’t stayed quiet and is even using the homophobic terrorist attack in Orlando as a further event to slate people.
Here’s what he’s been tweeting lately:
However, in a turn of events, Onision has made a decision to be positive and officially apologised to all those he upset:
Ultimately, we’re not sure what’s going on with him but we reckon he needs to take a break from social media. Onision may have had some valid points but to use Christina Grimmie’s death as a platform to express these and to ridicule those suffering was truly wrong.
