TO THE GIRLS SPREADING RUMORS ABOUT TOM BURNS
To all the girls who are calling my boyfriend Tom Burns a pedo, and particularly to the girls who sent me messages about how I should totally cut and murder him, and stated that he probably had AIDS / raped little girls at SitC. I am so disappointed/upset/angry. This kind of stuff is not funny. Do not spread FAKE rumors. Tom honestly does not deserve this form of hate.
I love Tom very much and to read those things this weekend made me so sad.
He is the most loving, caring, and moral person I know, and has put so many YEARS into SitC. Summer in the City couldn’t happen without him. And for people to tarnish his name is just terrible.
Tom has always been unbelievably kind to me, and the most perfect boyfriend any girl could hope for.
Also, over the past few months I’ve watched him put so much effort, time, and hard work into the event. Not sleeping and losing weight due to stress.
So please stop sending him horrible messages to his personal accounts. I’m sorry some if you weren’t able to meet the youtubers you wanted to, and that there were some mess ups, but destroying a person’s name is not a good thing. He is not to blame. The youtubers physically can not meet everyone.
I got several messages from Tom tonight about how he was so upset with the things people sent him on twitter. People telling him to fuck off, go kill himself. He was red eyed and threw up because of how sick to his stomach it all made him. This is obviously affecting him a lot.
He has stated that if anyone has had any issues with the event or ideas for improvements to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
It is a community event. So seeing all the blame fall on him for any bad experiences individuals may have had makes me very sad.
However, overall it appears that Summer in the City was a huge huge success this year. I couldn’t be more proud of everyone involved and I look forward to being able to attend next year.
And again, SitC could not happen without his hard work. None of you would have been able to see, meet, or be in the same room as your favourite youtubers this weekend. And the community would lose something special.
- Lots of Love
