In a further show of disinterest to his audience since #DickGate and his ensuing insults to the chat room (“Never of value… Weirdos… with no lives”), #Soup has now canceled the crowning achievement of the streaming network, the New Years Eve 24-hour celebration.
Viewers may remember #Soup rang in each time zone’s New Year with a countdown and champagne with a cast of characters from all across the TWiT Network. However, this year, CeHO needs a vacation, according to #Soup, and is forcing him to take off as well.
I guess UNICEF doesn’t need any more money after last year. Children are no longer dying from preventable causes! Congrats everybody!
