Steven Williams, the man who plays Boogie2988 on YouTube released a video the other day that irritated me. Not the video, but something he said in the video. He described his recent and very quick divorce with wife Desiree Williams, married in 2013, as a “messy” divorce (2 minutes, 40 seconds).
Messy divorce? Compared to… what?
From where I sit, taking in everything Steven Williams has shared with the general public about the divorce, which is a lot, his divorce has been anything but messy. In fact, his recent statement directly contradicts things he has said before.
I just don’t get why people believe anything Steven Williams or any of the various fake Internet characters (Francis, Boogie2988, or Jessy) he plays on YouTube says. He’s constantly trolling for sympathy whether he deserves it or not. Too many of his fans seem to be more than willing to heap that sympathy upon him whether he deserves it or not.
It’s gross. Speaking of gross, I made the mistake of pointing this obvious falsehood out in the comment section of the video. Two of Boogie2988’s fans accused me of being a pedophile.
How was Boogie2988’s divorce messy? He’s living in the same home as he was before the divorce. He still has that creepy little dog he shared with his wife.
He doesn’t seem to be hurting financially. It doesn’t look like he had to sell everything he owns to pay his bills. The plethora of geek junk taking up space in his studio looks to all still be there. I’m guessing his ex-wife didn’t drain his bank accounts.
Since he’s already divorced, it’s not like it dragged on for months or years in court forcing him to pay lawyers money he didn’t have. She left him and wanted a divorce last month and now they’re divorced. How can that be messy?
Steven and Desiree Williams have no children. It’s not like he has to deal with having his ex-wife remarry and replace him in his child’s life with the new husband. Steven Williams doesn’t have to ever deal with the heartache of having his own child call some other man his or her dad simply because his ex-wife didn’t want to be married to him anymore and decided she wanted to marry someone else.
When Boogie2988 says he had a messy divorce, he’s lying. The reason he’s lying is that he wants everyone to feel sorry for him. It’s the constant mode in which he operates. Feed him sympathy.
Thanks, but no thanks. When someone tells me something that I know is not true because they want to garner my sympathies, I do the complete opposite.
