We need to talk about the FNAF franchise. This is a franchise that has meant so much, not just to me and the channel but to the entire community that formed around it. There is a lot to cover and I hope you'll take the time to watch to get my point of view on everything that has happened recently.

      @TheAdvertisement because he’s so close to exposing the root of the issues he’s talking about. So close to figuring out why these problems like legislation and political donations happen. He just, doesn’t go all the way. But then again this is a HRless channel with millions of subs, he has to maintain an image so maybe he does know all that stuff he just can’t talk abt it in a video.

    • TheAdvertisement

      Lmao no he would not. And what does that have to do with this video?

    FNaF theory: What if Elenor from To Be Beautiful put a sound disk in the necklace that she gave to Sara. Sara was never with skin after meeting Elenor, but just a bunch of spare parts. So when she dropped it the sound disk broke and she revealed what she truly was. (My friend Maddy made this theory)

    So the 2% of the population that’s LBGTQDKRJFFH, and even less of that 2% actually know FNAF while the rest are probably too busy correcting people on which 1000 pronoun to use / partying like rockstars. Yup LGBT characters in movies can only be played by people from their tribe, I mean people who went through the victimization….. who needs acting, presidents will be played by actual presidents, video game makers who dare to use colours so it looks like a rainbow in a scene should be replaced by an LGBT, their tribe logo was clearly stolen.

      Can't do that, but I can respectfully hate you.

  • TalonsAndTails

    I hate that political stances had to become to prevalent. I think that a creators political views and their creations should stay separate. The internet had no right to go digging through Scott’s finances. And I don’t care what you think about it. I’m sure Scott wanted to keep his political and financial choices private, and you, a stranger on the internet, had no right to go digging that up. It is not your right to know everything about a creators private life. And I hate how Scott felt he had to step away from his work because some internet strangers decided they had a right to his financial decisions. Because they immediately jumped to the worst conclusions instead of sitting down and actually doing research instead of immediately freaking out. And it’s absolutely unacceptable to threaten a creators loved ones. That makes you no better then the person your threatening.

    • TheAdvertisement

      Well said.

    At first I thought without Scott Cawthon Five Nights at Freddy's is doomed, but I forgot that Five Nights at Freddy's is more than just Scott. I wish the developers of the official games good luck with the future of the series. To everyone how hates Scott for his political view, you can hate the guy and I kindly disagree, but how dare you threaten his family. Despite Scott's political donations, I still think he's a great guy who made this every expanding video game series. He's game developer who supports fan games and gives donations to his fans. I haven't seen Nintendo, Sony, or Microsoft do anything like that to the scale that Scott Cawthon has. I may not be a giant Five Nights at Freddy's fan, but I still wish the best for this series.

    I have to say, even though Matpat says that its entirely a valid option to cancel Scott without looking at what his reasoning was, I have to disagree. If you're ignorant enough to not even look at Scotts reasoning and still go against him, then you are not better than an actual ignorant homophobic man who refuses to listen to any reasoning.

    "I hate American Politics" This right here. Peoples is peoples. I absolutely hate that nowadays we are pushed to hate people that don't agree with us on every little thing. I'm a right leaning Christian like Scott. I generally vote for Republicans. Does this mean I hate Democrats or people in the LGBTQ community? Absolutely not. I think we need to stop drawing conclusions about people because of who they may or may not support and just get to know people for who they are instead of who they like or dislike in politics

    Honestly idc who he supports idc who he donates I don't and I don't bc its his business what you said about the internet is true 100 percent true but also you have to see that the internet let's itself in to people personal lives so it's his business I still love the game and love him I think that his creative mind is amazing I am really sad to see him step down I am I loved his work yeah he is passing the torch but it won't be the exact same it won't bc who ever takes the torch isn't Scott this doesn't mean I agree with who he donates to or who he supports not at all but it really isn't my business honestly how wod you feel that every donation you made or every thing you say behind closed doors goes out to everyone it's none of our business that is all I love your channel I love film theory too as always great work mat❤❤

    I get it dude. You don't wanna give up the francise because you profit off of it. You're only human. Maybe you could donate all the money you make from your FNAF content to LGBTQIA+ charities moving forward? You probabily won't, but you certainly could.

  • Rae the Scarecrowlover

    Damn, glad I never got into FNAF. Imagine having money and then donating it to individuals who actively regress the advancements of society. It's like building a bunch of buildings in Age of Empires only to destroy them all with the delete button. Literally burning resources. Pity.

    I'll be honest, at first I thought this was just going to be how these political people whom Scott Cawthon had supported was going to be demoted greatly and that you were just going to talk trash about him for his choices in your talk about him, but that wasn't what you did at all. I greatly respect you Mattew for your ability to take a situation and think about the broad point of view instead of looking something at the value that you orginially see and judge it based on that. My personal point of view about Scott Cawthon has also change but most likely in the polar opposite as most people who support the fnaf franchise, and I respect your opinion just the same as I belive my own opinion. I respect that you took everything that he said and took a look at what you ususally do when voting for a political candidate, as well as reaserching what these political candidate had been looking to fight for and judging based on these things. The bottom line is, I respect you. What you did as far as recessing the situation is something a lot of people today don't do or forget to do which makes my opinion of you greatly increase recognizing your smarts and wisdom. Thank you for your ability to look at something abroad, and for always being able to putting in the extra effort.

    Once you have made yourself public, you give away your life choices, you will have MANY different types of people following you, you dont support trash, thats all, I knew Scott liked to create clowns, not support them to become president of his country…

  • Alex Franco
    Alex Franco

    I regret ever supporting a person who supports tragedy, aka mr orange face and his gang of trash, Scott supported many different causes, yeah, he still gave money to the kind of trash that destroys and divides the country, he left because he couldnt take the heat of what he had done, to anyone who has empty hate just because someone is “different” or just because someone likes something out of the order they think “god wrote things”, is trash. 😤

    As a Bi (leaning towards lesbian) trans girl from Australia: Scott had the right to make those donations and has shown clear support for LGBT communities for years. Nothing he has done here has been with the intent to harm LGBT communities, in fact quite the opposite, I love the man, and I hope the best for him.

  • LightUnlimited

    In short my opinion or not, peoples reaction to his donations got blown out of proportion, and like alot of things that have had to be changed because we cant handle disagreements or controversy. They jumped on scott for a personal choice THAT HE HAS A RIGHT TO MAKE. Just like everyone. And he got stupid amounts of hate for something that should have been his choice and his alone in the first place. This should never have happened to him, and scott i am sorry for that.

    I decided to stay out of this as a whole. Considering how American Politics won't affect me, I just left it alone and ignored it. Then people went on this hate train against scott and I have been called a bigot and a homophobe for 'supporting' scott (at the time i was just trying to figure out what was happening). As of now, I went to ignoring it again. I still was in the fandom, but sepparated myself from the community and avoided anything to do with the topic. Until now.

    • TalonsAndTails

      I’m sorry you were attacked like that. People shouldn’t be so impulsive. Wanting to remain neutral doesn’t mean “hates your side.” It’s just “leave me the frick out of this.” You didn’t deserve that and you are absolutely valid In not wanting to take place in the debate.

    Just because Scott supports right-leaning politicians shouldn't condemn them from being an all inclusive game designer. He is allowed to have his opinions just as we all are. Just because you dont agree with his actions or the people he wants to run the country doesn't mean he should be put down for exercise his rights
