Leo Laporte Turns Off Chat Because He’s Shamed by a Chatter While Discussing His Tesla

Leo was doing his This Week in Tesla show when a chatter complained about his ostentatious show of wealth — even though he leases everything and isn’t actually wealthy like Jason Calacanis.

Leo didn’t appreciate this and shut off the chat, causing the sheep to descend on <Eddy> like rabid wolves when Uncle Leo could no longer see their input. How many more were shouting into the void is unknown.

  1. This has long been my complaint about him. Now many other things on top of it, but this was my original. He claims to be a ‘liberal’ but like most liberals, he is only a liberal when it comes to others and not himself. He is what is wrong with this world. I don’t care that he bought a Tesla, more power to him. Where people get pissed is that he spews his “liberal” viewpoints and then goes and does a 1%er thing. Fuck you leo

  2. Old clip but I was hoping it would come up here for discussion. Far worse than his Tesla talk is the start with the “Isn’t she gorgeous?”

    No, she’s a tranny with crazy eyes!

    Also funny was the alky telling Calacanis to quit bragging and he gets visibly shaken. Leo is a vile person who surrounds himself with other vile people.

  3. I enjoy “nice” things like the next guy, especially if you accomplish some level of success in life which affords you such things. I certainly wouldn’t talk about it in public though. Show of wealth like that reminds me of those “rich quick” seminars in real estate about an ostentatious display of wealth. It’s a tacky. 🙂

    1. It’s not just tacky, it’s trashy…white trashy, in this case.

      Leo can have his wine cellar and opine about broadway musicals, but with his constant boasting about his “wealth” Leo is so nouveau riche it’s sickening.

  4. How is Eddy a moron because of his comment? He merely pointed out that Leo is being a pompous jerk showing off about his expensive car and (allegedly) attractive wife. Meanwhile there are ‘working’ folks who can’t even get a clean glass of water in the supposedly greatest country in the world. Leo’s clearly the jerk here.

    Talking figuratively here, but Leo better be careful because history shows that those who flaunt their wealth while surrounded by people who can barely get by have a tendency to have their heads cut off and instigate revolution against the upper class.

    1. No kidding. I didn’t originally catch the chat comment but the guy didn’t even say something like “how about donating some of that wealth to the needy like to in Michigan without clean water?”

      He merely pointed out that Leo’s bragging has no relevance to the viewers, there are far more pressing issues to talk about.

  5. I can no longer watch this lying, shite of a hypocrite.

    The laugh, the pork, the sleaze, and the insecure bragging are just too much. The fact that the wife is an ugly, evil, gold digging bitch is just icing on the turd.

    Fuck you LaPorque, fuck you!

    1. I think he is getting so much strap-on action from Lisa. So he is getting the purse thing going and the wanting to be a woman thing. I’m sure that comes from Lisa making him say things like “I’m a little girl” through the ball gag as she’s giving him the works.

  6. His bragging has grown to epic proportions. The chat room comment was the perfect response because it really shook Leo up. When confronted (dick pics, Tesla, etc), his first reaction is always to turn off the source (kill the messenger). It never occurs to him to attempt a change in his abominable behavior.

  7. The poor obese heart attack waiting to happen is so torn. He hates the growing disdain for him that evident on his IRC but he relies on that same IRC to do the Google search’s for him for his show because he is too lazy to do it himself and his subpar knowledge of modern technology would be more evident to the listeners of his awful radio show.

    How long before he only has the IRC on during the radio show only or creates a new one that is for his ass licking sycophants only and available only for him to see on that day and then lock out everyone else?

    Either way he is heading towards obscurity and it is all his fault. If he ever vanished from the world many would sigh and say “No Loss”

  8. “Lisa is gorgeous”
    After hearing that, how can you listen to him about anything? If someone is delusional about their kid, fine, but Lisa, his girlfriend? I don’t understand this condition. Maybe it is a form of denial, as in when he kept saying how great Mike Elgan was, instead of dealing with the truth?

    1. >If someone is delusional about their kid, fine, but Lisa, his girlfriend? I don’t understand this condition. Maybe it is a form of denial

      It’s easy to understand. It’s a common occurrence: The mid-life crisis of late middle-aged men. This is when men typically (if they can afford it) dismiss their wives of many years and get a younger one and buy a sports car (or a Tesla).

      It’s critically important that the world takes notice of their acquisitions (cars, women). Their purpose is to be displayed for others to see. Otherwise they are like the sound of that tree falling in a forest with no one around to hear it. That’s why these women are called trophy wives. Their purpose is to show to the world that the aging man who is losing it still has it.

      So it’s essential that Leo believes that his fugly Petaluma “trophy” (lol) is beautiful and that everyone knows that he has a Tesla.

        But CeHO isnt a younger wife, she is an old skank who has worn the same clothing and hairstyle for years. She looks like trash, she sounds like trash, she behaves like trash.

        I could understand him hooking up iJustine or someone like that but not CeHO.

      LMFAO!!!

      LeoLaFuck calling his ManTranny with crazy eyes “Gorgeous ” does prove he is a liar!!!

      I suspect ManTranny may have bigger “manly dangling bit” than LaPork.

      Fuck both L&L’s

  9. This vile of a human needs to be stopped. Can you imagine having call to a company meeting with staff and guest speakers and the boss starts showing pictures of his wife on a slide show and commenting on she looks and add on about his new Tesla. While there is a up and coming layoff.

    Will he shed a fake tear too as he fires (layoff) the staff?

    Perfect Douch

  10. I don’t care that he says his wife is gorgeous
    I don’t care that he is lease/buying a tesla
    I don’t care that he has a new phone every week
    I don’t care that he has been successful and makes a pretty significant amount of money.

    All I care about is how he treats his viewers and his hosts/employees and that he is running something that I really loved (TWIT) into the ground.

    Do you guys remember when there was only going to be 2 ads per show? Me too, those were pretty good times.

    1. To get on one of the “were are they now” shows, you had to be someone that people had heard of. Outside of TD and TWiT, nobody knows or cares who Leo is or was.

      Now he’s in bed with Calacanis..maybe it will be sooner than we may think..

  11. It is disrespecting the entire advertising industry when you label what he does as ads. Fifteen minute speeches made of pure lies is not an ad.

    I am confident Leo has had massive hemorrhages from the hardcore fan base and that is evidenced by no more T-shirt sales.

    Three years ago, he had a solid 10,000 hard core fans. If he sold a t-shirt he could sell 500 easy. Lisa, the CEHO would make a quick $3,000 profit, call her self a businesswoman and buy a ring or something. My asshole is a better CEO than her.

    1. Ugh, I’ve not listened to the Sunday twit show for weeks now. All I stick to is AAA and sometimes WW. But the ad reads are criminal. On other podcasts you get 2 or 3 mins tops, but on twit.tv you’re looking at 5 minutes minimum. Hearing Jason waffle on about overpriced razor blades for 5+ minutes is hard going.

      And a couple weeks back WW was just a 2 hour Microsoft Azure native advert.

          Security Now! and Windows Weekly were my last two I could bear, I’ve finally stopped. I only get news of TWaTtv from here, pure rubber necking I admit, it’s like a cars crash in slow motion.

  12. Leo is the definition of a narcissist cunt. What scares me the most is that there are humans who still love this creep & can’t see how much of a Monster he is. These are the same people who will vote for Clinton just because it’s time for a woman in the White House. I pray that these humans become the minority and more people wake up and stop supporting these psychopaths.

    1. It’s human nature for groups of sheep to follow the wolves over the cliff, always has been the case always will be.
      It’s why there have been so many cults, I’m sure some psychologist could come up with some reason, some term to describe it.

  13. The chat room is turning on him. His failure to recognize that he is insulting the people that are sustaining his viewership numbers is almost sad. Not only did he insult that one person, he single handedly insulted his entire chat room and any viewer that tunes in regularly. Bit by bit the tower crumbles.

    He lost pretty much EVERY quality host, guest and show he had. People will start to lose interest fast. Whatever viewers he has now, I am sure, are there to watch the crumbling unfold.

    2. In Narcissist Land. Narcissists have the best of everything, in their minds, they have to – they honestly think they deserve it. So of course she’s “gorgeous”. He probably thinks she’s Playboy-worthy. As long as she props up his flabby ego and touches his little wee wee, she’ll be the best thing since sliced toast.

      Once she stops…it will turn fast. It will get ugly. Oh, so very ugly.

      Uglier will be a 60 year old pervert like Leo newly single and ready to mingle with the 20-something crowd at tech conventions and shows. He’s going to be the creepy as fuck old man at all of them, and he’ll be oblivious to the shuddering and gagging he’ll leave behind him, like the wake of an ice breaker in the arctic.

  14. And while Laporte obsesses about acquisitions and his wife on a live stream, Europe is heading for civil war or worse. I actually find the complete polarization of this world fascinating. Only possible with instant communication systems.
    I do wonder if there are Aliens in stealth ships watching our planet and having a big Fu king laugh? Maybe we are a ongoing reality show series being broadcast back to their home planet 🙂

    1. It’s astonishing how Leo creates a false dilemma: it’s his Tesla or helping people in Flint. He completely misses the point, or more accurately, pretends to miss the point.

      Leo knows damn well how insensitive and coarse it is to boast about a $130K car while the middle class is shrinking and the world economy is teetering on the brink of collapse. People are suffering, and he’s complaining about his overpriced toy.

      But…he just doesn’t care, and he resents it when those in the chat room point it out.

        1. Being a minor on screen media personality is not a good basis for a stable long term career, did she join Lionsgate to get away from the mounting problems of being a middle aged woman in an industry that values the young and pretty more?

            » Quote comment

          1. Maybe just fed up with doing irrelevant tech news at small companies and decides that comics and gaming, though just as irrelevant, pays better. Lionsgate is much bigger than any place she has been before.

      1. IS H-Bomb still working at TWiT on the Tech Guy Show? I noticed that her stand in is listed in the employee’s for TWiT and even Ex-Employee’s like Elgum and guests that appear on some of the shows like Flimsy Girl too but I could not find Heather Hamann on the employee’s listings.

        Did I miss her pissing on the fat fuck or did she just get sick of his bullshit and dump his sorry ass?

        Hell they’ve even got man boobs Jason Snell on there and the guy that updates Leo’s TechGuyLab’s website.

  15. The day I began hating Twit.

    It was the day Lisa sent a picture of some guys asscrack while he was unloading Leo’s new Segways. Why would people find that funny? Because those 4 people truly believe they are better the others. L&L “The toothy Jarvis” and Gina. Gina being the last person on this earth that should make fun of someone actually working for a living.

    The very last time I ever watched a Twit podcast. And from what I read it is going down in flames.
    I don’t care about a Teslas, a “beautiful wife?”. What I did care about was learning about technology.
    Leo is now the dinosaur of that topic.
    I don’t think I am the only one disappointed.

    1. That really was a despicable thing to do, so they didn’t show his face but that was no excuse. They are like a school reunion of all the bullies guffawing and reminiscing at all the kids whose lives they made a misery.

    2. At the time she did that (the photo of the Segway deliveryman), I spent a half-hour on Google trying to find the name of a Segway dealership in the Petaluma/Sonoma County area. I wanted to call the place up and report what LL and his “beautiful wife” had done. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find anything.

      It was humiliating. That poor guy was just doing his job, trying to earn an honest living so he could support his family.

      I guess it’s not too late. One of these days maybe I will be able to track down that dealership and let them know what happened. I’d love to see the deliveryman sue the fuck out of TWiT.

    1. LOL.

      This was the best part of my morning so far. I wish I was the Tesla X shitter. The best part of this testimonial was that the dude was on a date “with a VERY conservative girl” and he took her out in his Tesla X Wing. WHAT A DOUCHE!!!

      I will keep my eye out to see if there are any Tesla Model X in my neighborhood that I can help propagate this meme. I hope someone keeps there eye out for Leo’s Tesla X in Petaluma too.

      Imagine a world where we could be known as:

      THE X WING SHITTERS.

      TYFYC.
