I didn't wanna beat the Sleepykinq thing into the ground, ever since I made the whole video series reading Re-Nightmare people think he's all I talk about or that I'm an expert on all things Sleepykinq, which I'm not. But I wanted to address something that's been brought to my attention.
Up until this point I've had no issue with Sleepykinq making light of rape or making rape jokes, I don't think that's a big deal, but someone I know has recently shown me a bunch of Tumblr posts where Sleepy constantly makes references to how Mystery rapes people, how he rapes Kao, rapes his father, and basically how he rapes everyone (but the only thing he can't rape is himself HUEHUEHUEHUEHEU). That's fine, whatever. At the end of the day, you're the one who looks like a fucking nitwit retard being edgy.
It was only mildly annoying at this point, and only because the jokes were repetitive and dull, they weren't funny (and it's inconsistent too, I remember there was a whole joke in the comic about how Mystery didn't want to rape the ram character). It only actually pissed me off until I was sent this post here.

What9 by DigbyTheGoat

Some retard asks a question for Sleepy and gets a really fucking stupid answer. And it really shows that SleepyKinq is a shitty writer and doesn't know anything, and it's just one more thing for me to laugh about when people say he's improved.

Lemme just say this right out of the gate- SleepyKinq, your characters do not feel "real" in any sense of the word. They are cardboard cut-out two-dimensional flat pieces of poorly designed shit. You are not a talented writer, you do not make good characters, stop pretending that you do.
"It's supposed to show that some villains are bad because the world made them become like this." Yes, Sleepykinq. That's Mystery's purpose. Before now that was just something that never fucking happened, no villains have ever been products outside forces, you're the first to do that, and we really owe you for it. Darth Vader? Two-Face? The Green Goblin? Bitches, we needed Mystery from Re-Nightmare to show us how it's done.

I'm also not entirely sure how this all relates to Mystery raping people. It sounds Sleepykinq is talking about Mystery being a good villain because he has a tragic backstory and bad shit's happened to him and that's why he's a good character or something, which doesn't make sense in its own right, but what does that have to do with him raping people? There's no transition- "He rapes because he's bad, he's supposed to show that some villains are bad because bad stuff happened to them." What?
You can't just shoehorn in rape to make a villain a better character, that doesn't fucking work. Usually when a villain rapes someone it's because the author wants the audience/readers to hate that character and want to see him get retribution. But that isn't the case, Mystery is Sleepykinq's most beloved character, he's become an anti-hero of sorts, like fucking Deadpool. The difference is Deadpool isn't portrayed as a serial rapist, he doesn't end every chimichanga joke he makes with "Also I rape people a lot."
Remember J. Geil from Stardust Crusaders? Remember how Polnareff wanted revenge because J. Geil raped and killed his little sister? Remember how much of a beloved character he was? Remember watching it and thinking to yourself "Wow I love this 3-dimensional villain, I hope to see a lot more of him!"
No. You don't. No one does. The only thing anyone wanted of him was to watch him get his ass kicked, because rape is just one of those things that makes a character unlikable.

Sleepykinq, I really hope you see this post. You're an arrogant douchebag and I think it's best that your ego take a few hits. Who knows, maybe you'll learn something. But I doubt it, you've made it very clear that you're content with never getting better.

smh why do people think giving their characters "treggic bakstoryz!!1" or just branding them as "evil" or "insane" are good excuses for writing shitty characters

for one thing plenty of people have had shitty childhoods and still managed to be happy and successful as adults so I don't get why people always assume that tragic past= evil

for another you can't just call your character "insane" and expect all your writing/character flaws to just magically drift away. I don't think I've ever seen anyone in real life use being "evil" or "crazy" as an excuse and if you really wanna make your characters "feel more real" you have to acknowledge that most people who do terrible things have more motives to do those things than just "being evil".

But I mean to be fair at least we... kinda.. got to know the character and.... sorta.... found out why he was such a shitty person (I mean she did a shit job of introducing him and his past was kinda dry but we still sort of got to know him) instead of doing what LupisVulpes did where she didn't tell us anything about her characters at all and just expected us to believe that the only reason her characters did what they did was because they were "the hero" or "crazy" or whatever instead of elaborating on who they were or what their motives were.

Even then using some shitty, copy-paste backstory and saying their actions are only committed because of a negative trait they have to excuse something as horrible as being a serial rapist is a really shitty thing to do.

This is absolutely true to the legit top to the bottom
No ones "bullying" sleepy here but pointing out the biggest flaws that he could easily amend but chooses not to and keeps the poorly written traits
If the character can't be created well the whole trait and idea of Idk being a rapist becomes a "joke" and how many times he says it dries up fast and becomes a serious concern as a hole fetish of his or something? It's like saying I love you to someone you hate but then saying joke after it when they actually say it too often to then make you think they actually do love the person they hate

Sorry for my shit examples and grammar dude but yeah you get the gist

Honestly if Sleepy wanted to make a character be a rapist, then he should look at works who take this issue seriously, use it to drive the story and characterzation, and make it real so that it causes an emotional impact on the veiwer. Berserks seems like the best candidate if he were to treat it like an issue.

Here's spoiler territory but i doubt you'd even watch it because it's dark:
during the golden age arc it built up the relationship of guts and casca, which more or less leads to them at one point getting it on and casca gets pregnant. by the end of it, All of the band of the hawk was sacrificed to the GodHand, except guts and casca, so that griffith would transform into the newest member of GodHand. Once he transforms into femento, he rapes casca because he sensed that she had a child, right in front of guts. it was mentally truamatizing to guts because he saw what was being taken from him, his future. This drives guts to hunt down griffith and kill him. it's like his only reason to live if for vengence, because he became an emotional wreck. also there's other times of attempted rape but it's to further prove the point that everyone's religious, but they don't understand what they believe.  Also it doesn't sow it bc it's sensitve material. it's impressive how the dodge around showing it full on but still keep the emotional effect it's trying to cause.

 these are edgy characters written well and treat rape seriously. Sleepy's is the opposite.

as a character/story writer
sleepy is not the best writer tbh :/ i have plenty of villains who are the way they are bc of the world
without a competitive rape joke.
im no angel i take pride in my villains and even some of them are fucking brutal. but sleepys villain is not well written and just seems like a joke to the subject of rape. perhaps if it wasn't written so stupid it wouldn't seem so much like a joke.
im not saying im better or anything, in no way do i even think my stories are the best. but i think i know how to write a character well

but not going to ripp on mysteries design as i like it alot, but its probably bc i like purple furrys without shirts on -silly me....

(My apologies for my English grammar)

Tell me about it! I am so sick of all these "Sleepykinq rant" on YouTube! It will just bring more people to harass the kid even though before these kind of videos were posted, people didn't know anything about this stupid drama! And they didn't need to!
Also I'm sorry but the person who submitted this post is pretty arrogant! "you don't know how to to write a good story you little piece of shit and blablabla you're the worse!" they may not be good right now and YES it was clumsy to throw the rape thing out of nowhere but instead of yelling and insulting right away you could have give them some advice since you're(the author of this post) shooting that you're sooooo much better at writing!

The Sleepykinq made a mistake and mistakes make us improve and becoming a better artist and person.

Peace.

And. Stop. This. Stupid. Drama. Already!

that's where you're wrong kiddo.
1) dig's here didn't say "kys" 
2) if he can't take criticism, shitty criticism at that, why is he on the internet to begin with
3) he has caused a large amount of a generation to romanticise rape.
4) literally he hasn't learnt his lesson stop lying to yourself

i think we should move on too because we can't fix the damage he's caused, but at the same time i don't want to wake up in the future and have a gay rapist tryna get in my pants who's  almost a whole decade younger than me
plus the kid's 14 who hurt him enough to think rape is okay

I didn't expect so many people to fall for him playing the victim card, but I guess when you're popular people will believe you no matter what.
The problem is SleepyKinq did not learn his lesson the first time or the second time, and only recently seems to be getting the message. I'm not going to go easy on him because he's playing the whole teen drama "feel sorry for me" thing.
And did I tell him to end his life? I don't believe so.

Sorry but can I just say that if SleepyKinq supports rape because his fictional character sexually assaults people, then by default,

Authors who write about murder support it.

Artists who draw gore wants to do that stuff to people.

I apparently support abuse (not the case at all, if you purposefully hurt an innocent person you're an asshole)

Writing about someone doing drugs means you support it

Having a character getting hurt by others means you want to do that to someone

Drawing or Writing about anything instantly means you're okay with it.



The amount of hatred he's currently getting is making him feel suicidal. Could you maybe tone it down and take a second to realize the toll it has on people?

Just because rape/murder/etc. was put into a book, that does not mean the artist or writer support it.
It's meant to put some sort of horror into the scene but it's very unlikely they support it.

Hey retard maybe it would benefit you to read the journal before forming your strawman because if you did then you'd at least know what my point was, and it definitely wasn't that.

If he wants to play the victim card and act all depressed because of some fuckin' journal criticizing him then so be it, but I'm not buying it.

True, but I do believe that Harley has dose the same to joker in recent comics. 


I believe that DC is trying to convey that the relationship of Joker and Harley is both physically
and mentally damaging on both parties, I'm not a DC fan so I can't be sure. 

I was just using Joker as an example though, he is a well known villain as well as well wrighten.

What's really starting to get me about Sleepykinq is his absolute fucking blatant ignorance about the critisism he recieves. I never liked the annoying little shit, all he is is a stuck up high-horse fucknut. At least other animators don't use their 12 year old fans to fulfill their sexual fantasies, and don't draw pornography of them and their partner who are might I add underage. This isn't fucking normal.

I don't like his style, or his animations, or anything he fucking does, and the fact that his channel is about to break 100k is the saddest fucking thing ever. 

You can tell that his ego is through the fucking wall, and just like you said, it's best if it takes a few hits. It's honestly so stupid.

"Oh but this is too harsh, you're bullying him!"

Welcome to the internet, here no one's gonna be a fucking sweetheart and sit you down with them, pat you on the back and spoil you like a bitch. Bullying my ass.

Throughout his borderline offensive content, there isn't a single one of his videos I'd remotely like. Animation memes aren't good content. Why do I watch them then? Because they're an easy source of entertainment, for me at least. I can sit down and watch a lot of them and just watch furries dancing on the screen. It's sort of a relaxation method for me (or watching any sort of videos for that matter). Except AMs are short and quick and that's why I prefer them over 10-15 minute videos when I just want to sit down and watch something on my phone. 

But what's so odd about Sleepykinq? Well, it's really easy - he isn't original at fucking all. At least other meme animators join/host MAPs and such. But Sleepykinq almost never does that, and when he does it's not fucking animated, it's just well edited slideshow. As for him hosting a MAP... well, we all know how it ended last time. And when he DOES his original meme, it's fucking garbage, usually barely animated and again just a slideshow. 

The little sack of shit somehow manages to glorify Mystery through all of the shit he does, and it's really damn sad. Mystery should be viewed as a scumfuck, not a "senpai uwo". He's the stereotypical edgy furry character, pretty much the dream of every 13 year old girl. And the fact that people who are about 7 watch his shit is honestly sickening, you know that your fanbase is full of little fucking children, and yet you still do this shit. Yeagar and Scotch oversexualize their characters, but this is next fucking level. His fanbase is full of little kids he could easily influence, and you can see that through the questions they ask him.

His characters are bland as fuck, and nothing about them seems real at all. His art is pretty decent, and his shading is goals, but despite that, his style really does look tumblr-ish, which to be honest I hardly see with animators nowadays, but this is an exception. 

All he fucking does when he gets called out is play the victim, and it makes my blood absolutely boil that his fans still defend him, and that he needs his friends and fans to defend him instead of doing it himself. Playing the victim doesn't help the situation at all. These are all young impressionable children, so Sleepykinq, seriously think about what you are influencing these developing brains with and think about what this could cause. At least for once in your life, grow the fuck up and act like an adult. I know you're 15 and you're still an immature cunt, but for god's sake, learn already.
