On the eve of the new Cultaholic Ventures launch of the Cultaholic's YouTube Channel, founding member Adam Blampied has taken to twitter to deliver a press release announcing his wish to take some time away for "personal issues."
Adam Blampied former host and established star of YouTube Channel WhatCulture and WhatCulture Wrestling had recently announced that he would be teaming up with fellow What Culture exiles Adam Pacitti, King Ross, Jack The Jobber and Sam Driver in launching a new YouTube Brand called Cultholic.
The Cultaholic Channel was due to launch November 1st but this evening (25th October) Adam Blampied released the following statement on his Twitter account.
This announcement has been met with a mixed reaction from fans. Some offering support for being open and honest about his mistakes, however some have condemned his actions in light of the recent climate of stars taking advantage of their positions of power. Is this purely a damage limitation exercise from the previously very media savvy internet darling and his colleagues at Cultaholics or a serious, open and honest heartfelt apology… only time will tell. How much damage this will cause to the new Cultaholic brand?
The Cultaholic YouTube Channel launch has been postponed for an undisclosed period of time, confirmed by @Cultholic on Twitter.
(Personally as a fan of the former "WhatCulture 5" and Adam Blampied I truly hope that this is the start of a period of deep reflection, atonement and a serious change in lifestyle that in time will help him understand his mistakes and make up for them.)
