Statement From Adam Blampied On Twitter – @AdamTheBlampied
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.)
