what exactly happened? htmlflowers called johnny ryan a racist or something
The whole thing is kind of dumb. Basically, on tumblr and facebook, HTML Flowers and Simon Hanselmann have been prodding and heckling Johnny Ryan for making gross comics and Nick Gazin for supporting him for a while now. Ryan and Gazin didn't know who they were for a while, which resulted in some funny facebook comments back and forth, where friends of Simon and Flowers got involved. Even though I like their work, I feel a little embarrassed for Simon's and Flower's responses.
at some point Simon Hanselmann made thishttp://girlmountain.tumblr.com/post/55186526675/comicsworkbook-simon-hanselmann-truth-zone
and then Johnny Ryan made thishttp://outlawscumfudge.tumblr.com/post/59428706832
Hanselmann reblogged that comic and was all cheesed off about it, but then deleted what he said. HTML flowers made some stupid tumblr meme pap.
They've basically just been goofing on each other, but HTML Flowers and Hanselmann are taking it way too much to heart and are now pretending like they've been bullied and are on some crusade to end the tyranny of Ryan and Gazin. Gazin made some good points on facebook about the whole thing and Ryan is saying that he's just busting their balls and actually really likes Hanselmann's comics. Who knows what'll happen next?!
I guess I can screen shot the facebook back and forth if you want.
