Well dang, I must have known you had lost a family member to COVID, and for me to make light of that would and is very cruel. Looking back now I don't think I did know, or simply ignored it because I have lost so many loved ones (not due to the pandemic) that I don't like to make jokes about death. I can't take back what was done, but I am truly and heartfelt sorry for hurting you in that way. That alone would be enough for me to block, and ignore a person as well, and I completely understand, and accept your decision. I just hope that you forgive me for hurting you in that way.Frankly I have no respect for the guy anymore after straight up being disrespectful to my black (African, Hatain, etc) friends when I was giving them a special shout out during the George Floyd incident and explained why saying “black lives matter” does not LITERALLY mean “ONLY black lives matter ” when he brought up the stupid “all lives matter” bs just to get the spotlight and politely asked him not to, accusing me of disagreeing and then going completely silent instead of owning up after explaining why it’s not a good idea to say it at a time like this.
Not only that, but some of the stuff he shared on his Facebook page was straight up disrespectful and attacking the LGBT community. Again, I’m speaking as a bi man and those who have had these attacks used against them. It really made me angry and uncomfortable. I would also like to mention I shared some of this stuff to another good friend of mine who was also once a member here that is gay/homosexual. He was not happy at all.
But what finally did it for me was him treating the virus like it’s not an issue whatsoever just because he personally doesn’t see a problem with it. I’m speaking as someone who lost a family member to covid in January and three other family members got it afterwards (all have survived thankfully), and also to those who have lost their lives due to this horrible disease that’s caused a lot of damage to this world to begin with. The fact that he even said “coming in without a mask” (whether it was a joke or not) has only shown he purposely sees this virus as nothing more than the flu when it’s more than that.
Sorry Dwayne, while I understand what you’re saying with disagreeing on stuff, there are other things you believe and share you can’t even disagree on politely with someone as they attack communities poorly. I’m putting you on ignore now and would like to move on.
