Joe Glass declares war on YouTube channel Diversity & Comics

Joe Glass, a comic book writer and journalist at Bleeding Cool, is trying to shut down the YouTube channel Diversity & Comics. He is also trying to shut down the Diversity & Comics Patreon account.

Remember when the comic book community valued free speech?

Joe Glass knows about harassment

Here’s a tweet he posted on Sunday, the same day he tried to report Diversity & Comics to YouTube:

He was commenting on a photo of guys wearing Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” hats. In Joe Glass’ world, this makes them serial rapists and guys who cannot get dates. That sounds like harassment to me.

Leave Diversity & Comics alone

I wish Joe Glass and everyone else would just leave Diversity & Comics alone. You don’t like his content? Fine, then don’t watch his videos. It’s a big world. There’s room enough for everyone. You don’t have to try to de-platform him. I probably wouldn’t enjoy the comics Joe Glass creates, The Pride, but I would never try to get his books removed from the public marketplace. It wouldn’t even occur to me.

I just wouldn’t read them.

I enjoy the Diversity & Comics videos and I want them to continue, and I voted for Hillary Clinton twice. I may not agree with Diversity & Comics on everything, but I don’t think that’s a requirement.
