I’m calling it. Jeremy Hambly, also known as TheQuartering, getting punched by Matt Loter at Gen Con is now officially a five-alarm, drama-seeking dumpster fire.
Little by little, the story of him getting punched to the back of the head because of his “political beliefs” has become more and more absurd. Last night Jeremy released a video that said a whole host of things, some of which contradicted what he said earlier.
The whole thing is a mess.
Jeremy Hambly knew people hate him
Jeremy Hambly is a controversial YouTube culture warrior. He was banned for life by Wizards of the Coast, the makers of Magic: The Gathering for what they considered harassment and bullying of people in the community.
Whatever you think about Jeremy Hambly, there’s no denying a good many people dislike him. It’s a reaction he spends a lot of time and energy cultivating.
I would not have called the police
If someone like Matt Loter attacked me and I walked away with little to no physical damage, I would not have called the police. What’s the point? I generally don’t like the police. Because of this fact, I try not to interact with them.
I also wouldn’t broadcast to the world that I allowed some alt-lifestyle freakazoid to approach me from behind and punch my head several times. Consider how often Jeremy refers to men he doesn’t like as cucks, soy boys, and beta males. Now consider how he acted when someone wanted to do him harm. He ran away.
Is Jeremy Hambly an alcoholic?
I think Hambly has a drinking problem. In the military, this event would be classified as an “alcohol-related incident.” Even if Hambly didn’t consume 19 drinks before the assault – that is what he claimed – the fact the assault happened outside a bar at 2:00 AM would if he was in the military, trigger mandatory treatment. Good thing for Jeremy he’s not in the military.
Good thing for the military too. Hambly’s immediate reaction to someone visiting violence upon him is to run away.
He wants to be a victim
Jeremy seems obsessed with making this one drunken incident his defining moment. He seems to want to wallow in victimhood. That’s too bad. Who wants to be known as a human punching bag? Who wants to be a professional victim? I get the impression this was the first time someone punched him.
I wouldn’t call it a fight because that implies both parties participated. Matt threw ineffective punches, and Jeremy fled to safety inside the bar.
That is if you believe any of it even took place.
