Still can't quite get to grips with this horrendous loss. I was not the biggest fan of Ryan in recent years, but he never got on my nerves, he was insatiably likeable. He'd always bring a joy to the room, I can't imagine how BLLSL would've been a success if not for his excellent position as host, his natural charisma that bloomed fully while he was working at Giant Bomb. The old days, "UH UH UH UH UH," "I'm Batman," listening to every podcast, there was a time that Giant Bomb was a huge part of my life and helped me a little in getting through some rough patches. Even if he was just a guy on the internet who made podcasts and videos, he had a significant impact on my life and clearly many others, only going to show how good he was at his job. It's a small consolation that he was able to get married and settle Giant Bomb into a more secure position at the CBSi offices. Giant Bomb will never be the same again.

Fuck Ryan Davis.

I really cannot believe this... this is so god awful. I just can't sum up my feelings on it so near to the moment, but Ryan provided some great laughs and great insight over the years, so on-the-ball, so consistent... to think he's gone, it has me truly rattled.

@spaceinsomniac: What's stupid about Native American is that the settled group was not the first in America by any means and likely committed mass genocide or killed off the group that preceded / co-occupied the territory, ironically considering the PC history that is widely taught. Basically, calling the group Native Americans is like calling Europeans "Native Africans."

@flacracker: Yes yes it does if those words pass through your lips at any time for any reason you are a racist or at least that's what politically correct society seems to think.

Sounds like you want to use racial slurs without being labeled a racist.

Label others whatever you want, but when you go out of your way to ruin the person's life you are a bigger piece of shit.

Ah, Facebook. 1984 the website and millions of people willingly sign onto it regardless, because it's currently trendy. This sort of thing really does depreciate your faith in humanity. Not to mention those in this thread saying "serves him right," as if an annoying kid on the internet deserves to be imprisoned. A slap on the wrist by his parents or school? I could understand, though it would still be amoral. But this is horrendous.

"Freedom of speech", "political correctness", posting YouTube videos that you clearly missed the entire point of, there's probably something about "liberals" in here too. The gang is all here!

You guys are SO right though! Political correctness is so horrible! It's truly ruining the world. Why can't we go back to the good ol' days when the LAME BRAIN liberal thought police weren't trying to control us?

No Caption Provided

Ah...memories...Nowadays, a nice old millionaire southern white lady can't even call a black person a racial slur or organize a slave wedding without losing her job! THANKS OBAMA!

Oh look, something horrible happened 50 years ago! How relevant.

Because as we all know, without that political correctness, and out-of-control freedom of speech, we'd have black people hosed own and lynched in the streets tomorrow. All hail King Soetoro.

@customotto: How is that not true when in this case there's a perfect example of the workers behind Paula Deen's brand of foods?

Yeah no one ever suffered because of a lack of freedom of speech. Read a book.

not a freedom of speech issue and never was. what paula deen said wasn't illegal and no legal action was taken against her. once again, people also have the freedom of speech to say "yo, that's offensive and I'm not going to buy your shit!" and companies are probably going to respond to that!

Not hiring black employees isn't racist! It's just what employers want to do! They're just offended by black people!!!

That's sarcasm by the way, for the Giant Bomb mods who can't tell.

i would love to hear how paula deen losing partners because she's a racist shitbag is a freedom of speech issue. unless you're saying that paula deens freedom of speech to be a racist trumps the freedom of businesses to choose who they do business with

Because she has a right to say whatever she wants, punishing her for uttering a word decades ago is fascistic. And again, your inner bigot is showing under the guise of statism. It's evil and despicable to turn away blacks or women for jobs, but anyone who has a political opinion different to yours should be burned at the stake.

@customotto: "Racism destroys lives"? Any other meaningless platitudes you want to throw out there? Diversity is our strength, perhaps? I don't feel especially sorry for Paula Deen either considering she has millions already in the bank, but I do feel for the hundreds or thousands of employees who may be affected by this who aren't so well off financially. This self-gratifying shit actually "destroyed" more black lives than Paula Deen's politically incorrect language ever did.
