Thoughts on the Hololive Coco/Haato Taiwan and China incident? おたく 09/27/2020 (Sun) 22:47:49 No. 3485
Not much of a vtuber fan, I only occasionally watch clips, but I'm saddened to hear that even something as innocent as the vtuber sphere has been infected with politics and will breed new reactionaries out of lonely people with nothing better to do. Is no form of escapism safe from politics anymore?
>>3485 What happened, exactly? The hololive thread on /jp/ is just too fast to get any good info. No, really, it's even faster that the damn trump general on /pol/ >I'm saddened to hear that even something as innocent as the vtuber sphere That shit is corporate as fuck, dude. It actually surprised me how quick it got porkied up.
I find it hilarious. The /jp/sies are positively pissing themselves with rage.
>>3487 Haato was looking at audience statistics and mentioned Taiwan. Sometime after Coco showed an analytics page with Taiwan on it, her bilibili stream immediately went down. Chinese fans demanded an apology day one, radio silence for three days which made Chinese fans furious. Then Coco and Haato got suspended for three weeks by their management which made Japanese and English language fans furious. Now the CCP is somehow being blamed even though I'm not sure what the CCP had to do with it directly speaking.
The /jp/ thread is actually kinda entertaining. >Some vtuber defends the chinese >Half of the thread loses their shit (including some paypigs) The rest of the thread is just glowie propaganda.
>>3490 Actual CIA niggers think that chapos are the most threatening thing about the left, they don't know shit about this. This is just homegrown reddit/pol/ autism.
/anime/ - Shit-eating Youtube Celebrities
This is just another example of COVER being shit with protecting their employees, and I'm really not looking forward to all the free HK style spam that will probably be shit out, so I'll try to shift to watching indies.
Does anyone have that story about burgers that flipped out over a Che mural put up in Ireland?
In the event of Coco and Haato graduating by the end of three weeks, I hope K Son can kind of come back to the indie scene and give Haato a hand.
>>3492 /anime/ was approved as a general weeb board newfriend
>>3494 What are the indies anyways?
>>3498 Kagura Mea is one
>>3485 e-celebs wearing an anime girl face are still e-celebs. >>3488 /jp/ has reclined.
>>3504 >/jp/ has reclined. Some things never change however. The pedophile group that believes lolikon pornography is exclusively made by and for pedophiles is still claiming this in 2020 even though it's been debunked by historical research of the lolikon phenomenon and its fanbase in Japan.
>>3507 What does this have to do with the thread and why is it the third time someone brings it up on an unrelated thread? Are you that desperate for attention?
>>3508 >What's wrong with vtuber ecelebs? Social media might be more up your alley.
I don't know much about v-tubers. i only watch the funny english clips.
I don't get how can anyone stomach watching these, their face-tracking software is pure garbage. I tried watching some clips of them singing but they might as well just put up a static image instead of some half-assed animation that does not match the movements involved in singing at all.
>>3509 We were talking about the state of /jp/ friend take it easy, also this is my first time bringing it up on bunkerchan, where else is this being mentioned?

My friend group is already shitting out reactionary anti-China memes that reminds me of the Hog Kog glowie retardation. I'm hoping the issue will just pass, people will shift focus to YouTube removing community contributions or something, and nobody tries to escalate the issue by doubling down. >>3487 tl;dr: They recognized Taiwan as a separate entity from China which violates the One-China policy.
>>3489 >>3518 so to get this straight, a bunch of Chinese fans got upset over the mention of Taiwan, and their company overreacted and might fire them because of it?

>>3539 >a bunch of Chinese fans got upset over the mention of Taiwan, It's a bit more complex than that. From what I can tell, everyone's oversimplifying the situation and leaving out the fact that there's a whole chain of unfortunate coincidences that caused the Chinese to think that Coco hated them, which is why they forgive Haato but some are calling for Coco's head. >and their company overreacted and might fire them because of it? Cover Corp isn't good at protecting their employees and this incident is coming right after the Mano Aloe's forced retirement, so people are freaking out thinking "the goddamn commies killed coco!!!!1!!" when they really just gave them a 3 week break. The company has issued out a couple of statements on the matter, but people don't accept apologies easily these days, so y'know...
>>3541 >From what I can tell, everyone's oversimplifying the situation and leaving out the fact that there's a whole chain of unfortunate coincidences that caused the Chinese to think that Coco hated them, which is why they forgive Haato but some are calling for Coco's head. Yes, I remember reading that Chinese fans think Coco hates them. Mind elaborating how this happened?
CANCEL CULTURE GONE WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>3542 From what I've read, they think that Coco did it deliberately because her analytics showed she had a lower Chinese viewer/dono base than the other vtubers. >>3547 Do people on Bili even care?
>>3562 It's just REEEEEEEEing at some minority of chinese posters

Japanese otaku are shit. Western otaku are shit. Chinese otaku are, you guessed it, shit too. You can thank social media for intensifying their (our) shittiness.

>>3542 I can't be arsed to look into it more since all the discussions zones are flooded with useless anti-communist reactionary trash, but it looks like Coco's incident happens right after Haato's incident which made some people think she was doubling down and personally giving China the middle finger. The people going "wtf commies killed coco" are just reactionaries that watch garbage like Hero Hei and won't do anything but continue to be fed garbage by YouTube's autoplay algorithm. I don't understand why idiots think Cover Corp would just fire their two best employees like that's a terrible business approach. The circumstances are completely different from the Mano Aloe incident since Mano Aloe barely lasted a month under Cover Corp so there was really no risk.
