(i'm sorry that my blog is less emo these days guys)

shane morris and why everybody hates him

well, where the fuck do i begin? this probably won’t be completely chronological because shane pussies out every few months, and deletes his blog, leaving us with no dates and not many sources except the combined knowledge of bandom. 

i am going to catagorize this to help it make a bit more sense (and hell yeah i’m using full-stops!)

TW: rape, self harm, abuse, pedophilia, body-shaming, sexism, swearing, talk of drug use, suicide, nazism, classism, generally dicky things.

1 - the beginnings

(edit: i just realised how much i fuck up spelling this but i wrote it at 4am to 6am in a fit of anger, so forgive me) the ryan ross-specific side of bandom began to notice shane existed in around june, i think. he seemed okay at first, made a few dumb jokes here and there but hey, we can all live with a bit of stupidity. he told us he was ryan ross’s best friend and business partner. he began doing nice things like promising songs from ryan and saying he loves us all as a fanbase, making his “beautiful majestic dolphin” in-joke with ryan into a full business (it’s awkward to look at, i know, i’m sorry).

shane also used to be like myspace famous or something and has a myspace tattoo because he worked there. he also has an earmilk tattoo because he worked there, too, and some really shitty tattoos of winnie-the-pooh characters with guns and the sign “100 acre hood”. he does something in music but it’s pretty vague? i think he finds talent and manages people. he likes to tell everybody he is not privileged in the slightest, which is obviously wrong - he’s a white, american male. he dropped out of school and “made it on his own”.

apparently shane met ryan at a 2004 secret panic! at the disco myspace show. 2004 is, in case you didn’t know, before panic! had ever played a show in their lives, never mind had enough fans to play a secret one. strange, really, isn’t it?

as it turns out from the wayback machine - if we had gone a bit further into his history we may have seen the early signs of a full-blown asshole:

image

a text post saying “'I would be a terrible suicide hotline worker. Person: Help. I'm suicidal. Me: Are you fat or ugly? Person: Yeah. Me: Okay, go kill yourself. Put everyone around you out of their misery.”

image

notice here the early signs of somebody who mocks self-harm, depression, disorders and people’s problems!

image

image

image

and even more fat-shaming

2 - the promises/lies

this is when shane began to promise new ryan music. 

here’s one of many instances:

image

image

weird, really, because we never got that song.

image

shane also posted this in october and has since told us that ryan has not made any music.

more promises unrelated to music:

  1. the posters:
    image
    it trended worldwide. there were no posters.
  2. "sign up to the mailing list and get a free present!!" 
  3. seaworld:
    shane told the fandom that if we signed up for a competition we could go to seaworld with him and ryan for a day, all expenses covered. there has been literally no mention of that since.
  4. hang out in LA:
    image

    shane told the fandom we could “hang out” with him and ryan in LA for the day, again all expenses covered, and again with no mention since.
  5. shane also said ryan is going to have a reality tv show (i know, what the fuck??)
  6. shane also once said that ryan’s new “space punk” band was going to go on tour with jjamz in autumn 2012 (this obvously did not happen sigh.)
  7. these are not promises but other lies include: managing fall out boy and working with brendon urie, dating hayley williams, and begin friends with people from fbr.

so, shane is a liar.

3 - the bullying

this is one of the main things that people get mad about with shane. a while ago he made a video completely taking the piss out of self-harmers, people with EDs and people with depression. everybody was really really fucking pissed off at the video, and he responded to every ask he recieved about it with insults and jokes, clearly upsetting a lot of people.

one person told shane they had been abused by their father and what he said really upset them, and this was his reply:

image

(if you have any respect left for shane at this point then please never, ever make any form of contact to me about this because i fucking hate you)

on the same day he published this:

image

shane also made a few lovely tweets to/about panic fans

gardenburger (from this fandom, hates shane too) was bullied repeatedly by him and received this reply when she pointed it out:

image

shane once compared the fandom to a “bunch of battered women who keep coming back for abuse”, lovely, right? (thank you someone for submitting it:)

image

he also said this, for no reason, to a girl on twitter the other day:

image

this is what shane replied to somebody i am good friends with when they pointed out how hypocrital he was being:

image

this ask too:

image

and this is just fucking insane what the fuck shane:

image

4 - mocking music tastes

i don’t think we really paid attention to this at first, but shane has always insulted people on liking music different to the music he likes.

image

image

after trashing panic! endlessly, which yeah, we put up with - shane decided to step up his attention-seeking. he essentially created a shitstorm on purpose because he’s a sad fuck.

the day fob came off hiatus, shane made a post and if you want an idea of how it went, this is the photo for it:

image

he basically listed reasons why he did not like the new song or video and wished death on fob various times. this got so much backlash he deleted his tumblr (shanemorris.tumblr.com). but, as he has more “fans” there, he carried his fall out boy hate onto twitter with these little gems:

image

which lead to more than 100 people reporting him on twitter.

shane also said this about pete’s son, bronx, who is about five years old:

i don’t even know what to say about that like wow what a huge bellend!!!

when ribbonsflyingoutthewindow rightly pointed out that shane should not be wishing death on a band that basically saved ryan, this is his well thought-out and smart reply:

image

5 - hypocrisy

i think this part is really important, honestly, because shane can dish it out like a fucking soup kitchen but if you say one thing to him he’s the queen of legal action!!!

after shane bullied people via private messages (screencaps available if you scroll down the “tw: shane morris” tag but there are far too many for me to put here, sorry, look at some above for inspiration if u like) and bashed us as a fanbase, we obviously bit back and got upset. this is where shane fucking morris becomes the “victim” of “cyberbulling” (may i direct you to the “bullying” and “mocking music tastes” sections above?)

image

shane talks about these “death threats” he apparently receives almost every single time he gets a backlash for something, but this is a fanbase where we don’t do death threats or tolerate them generally, so it’s weird when you think about it. where are these death threats? where are the screen caps? where is the tumblr user he apparently was going to “lock up”? (note how he actually indirectly sends about 5 death threats just within this masterpost, too, fucking hypocrite.)

he also made a post comparing us to nazis and saying we were using the bullying tactics they used against the jewish in death camps. i don’t have a screen cap but wow how fucking low and stupid i??

6 - weird overreactions

shane is a bit fucking weird when it comes to ryan, basically.

one time this happened:
image

this was basically a creepy 12-year-old fan who took it too far. people notified shane, which fair enough, okay, he can tell ryan and i get that. but shane rang the police. he actually rang the police to press charges against a twelve year old girl who thought she would look at ryan’s house. he also said he was installing heavy security and carrying a gun with him. if that isn’t a tad too fucking far, then what is???

one time, ryan’s car was keyed. shane made a very, very weird and paranoid post about it: 

image

he presumes throughout that this was not a random keying, which is very common everywhere and will be highly likely because ryan is like completely irrelevant, but actually a member of the fanbase. yes, ryan’s fans want to cause damage to the things he owns, that makes complete sense shane u got us there!!! and notice the overuse of the word “enemies” and the mentioning of carrying a gun around again.

this is just plain fucking weird.

this all led to the next category:

7 - tw: shane morris

this was a tag started by me and sophia (wispagold) as a joke when we posted some creeper-stalker-shane fanfiction in it, and eventually bandom all joined in and it was completely hilarious with all of this fanfiction created. shane took it as a joke, and made a few posts about it.

then he started being mean to fans and insulting their intelligence again, especially quinn (twshanemorris/gardenburger). i distanced myself from the drama at this point because i was so damn mad at shane. (this was the time when shane made his three posts about legal action and guns and nazis).

UPDATE: WENTZ TO THE RESCUE

if this isn’t the bEST THING YUO’VE EvER SEEN THEN YOU’RE WRONG DEAR LORd

UPDATE: SMACKDOWN OF THE MILLENIUM feat. P STUMP

conclusion

basically if shane morris was an onion, all his layers would suck ass.

have these photos to calm urself down:

p.s i am probably missing a hell of a lot out so just send me what i’m missing and i’ll add it in (screencaps are ALL welcome even for things i have already mentioned)!!
