I mean...he's technically telling the truth lol.
If he got an advance, then he won't start making anything on books sales until the book publisher recoups that advance money.

So he's telling people to buy the book to help me start making dimes off selling books

saying "I'm not making a dime off of them." with a period at the end when actually it's more nuanced than that is some weirdo shit!

Dude has made some questionable decisions in the past. And as a result he has made strategic efforts in the past few years to be overly transparent with his efforts and financial dealings.

Why does every move or comment he makes have to equate to some form of self-dealing!??

Is it that hard to believe he simply wanted to acknowledge the passing of a black icon while also making an announcement about his book? Why everything gotta be some sinister plot to cake up?? Groupthink has completely taken over people’s ability to think for themselves.

white people going after him as proof he’s trash is weird.

The names are hilarious tho.

and it wasn’t like he asked for money because Chadwick died. Not sure how you are on his newsletter list and then try to put him on blast.

And only weirdos get off on it.

You can really just ignore that dude if you don't like him. He ain't an elected official, don't make policy, shit he don't even have a song on the radio.

Niggas stay on his email list just to be repulsed by him. Some kind of new sadomasochism.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Hey My Friend,

I wanted to check back in with you.

On Friday, just a few hours before we learned of the death of Chadwick Boseman, I sent an email out just asking people to check in with me. Thousands and thousands of you replied with the most heartfelt, and sometimes gut-wrenching messages.

On Saturday morning, I had a pre-scheduled email going out about my new book - and because I had not mentioned Chadwick's death in my previous email, I wanted to be sure to mention him at the top of Saturday's email.

My whole family was hurt by his death. I lost my own dear brother to cancer and know how painful such a loss can be. When I mentioned Chadwick's death in my email on Saturday, it was not as a cheap ploy to sell books. That's gross.

As I have said over and over again, I don't even make a penny when the book gets purchased. I didn't send the email for clout or personal gain either.

I poured my heart and soul into the book, and walk readers through step by step of how they can use their lives to really change the world. And I sincerely just wanted people to have some answers and clarity during such a hard time.

Anyway, because some people have subscribed to this email whose only goal is to find errors and fault, people then started posting that I was trying to profit off of Chadwick's death. Of course I wasn't. He was literally just on my mind - and I knew his death was on your mind - and simply wanted to acknowledge this. In fact, I thought it would be in bad taste to send the email and not mention him.

Nonetheless, it trended on Twitter, in the worst ways, and it pretty much sucks.

Yeah. So there's that.

I just wanted to reach out to let you know that I appreciate your support and hope that you know I was not using this man's death to sell books. Goodness gracious.

Love you all,

Shaun

people (formerly) from here still think Im scum of the earth when I havent been shitty out of nowhere to folks in maybe a decade

it's hard to wash that type of stain off you, his reputation surrounds suspicious money dealings and opportunistic grifting, to a point where it's difficult to believe he's sincere

All reports of shady financials and grifting are not only unsubstantiated but thoroughly disputed, and with all the enemies dude has in high places, if it was true he'd have been in jail years ago.

seem to have similar goals of wanting the funding he is able to receive from influential people..

Also.. it’s twitter and it almost becomes a game to people because they know shitting on him will get them a lot of traffic.

He mentioned Chadwick. So what. That's not a "ploy" to sell books.

That being said, he did intentionally misrepresent the publishing industry.

Which is an understandable issue that people have with him, but it's really his whole brand. The organized focus of attention.

I think he's in a position of trying to sell a book but he's way too conscious of the criticism that he's a movement profiteer.

So dude is in a catch 22. Sale my book and make profit or let my book flop and maintain some semblance of sincerity. So he tried to kind of weasel his way through that dilemma. It's in bad taste. (Of course, we could all be wrong about his book deal and he could be telling the truth).

weirdos on his mailing list just to “expose” him for selling his book is some sad shit.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*
