Tonya Hall Quits TWiT

Where in the World is Tonya Hall?

Six months ago, we asked “Will Tonya Hall Ever Be Allowed On-Screen Again?

Today, we have the answer: No.

The substantial woman whose marquee entertainment show — Marketing Mavericks — was put on permanent hiatus in 2015 was demoted to a podcast booker.

Soon after, she humiliated Sarah Lane, herself, the TWiT Network and journalism in general at the Crunchies.

Tee hee!

Tonya Hall’s reputation may have first started to suffer in 2014, when she threw an advertiser under the busnow official TWiT policy — but we appreciated her larger-than-life personality.

She will now retire to the great state of Colorado, the least obese and most active state in the nation.

TWiT had a party and nobody invited Leo Laporte. How could they have forgotten? He admits again in the video above that he has to buy friends. It would be sad he if hadn’t created the problem himself — pretend an appropriate link is here since the entire site would apply to this statement — over the years.

Farewell, Tonya Hall. Farewell.

Nathan Olivarez-Giles Defiles the Family-Friendly TWiT Network

Nathan Olivarez-Giles, seen here in need of soap for his potty mouth

It should come as no surprise that Nathan Olivarez-Giles — TWiT’s newest hire — cursed out the live stream on one of his first shows, as you can see in the video above.

The guy with the man-bun to his right could only laugh in disbelief at what was happening.

Have CEO Lisa Laporte and Leo Laporte officially dropped the family-friendly designation for the TWiT network?

Leo Laporte killed the family-friendly reputation years ago when Leo cursed out a room full of children live during the New Year’s Eve celebration in 2015.

Later in that banner year, Leo Laporte displayed his penis for all to see. The next year, he showed us Lisa’s vagina.

This year, 2017, Leo has already shared his teen porn with us. Lots more disgusting non-family friendly things have happened, but those are the highlights.

Leo Laporte’s Sex Swing is a Joke on No Agenda

Adam Curry, hero among men.

If we’re being honest, we’d somewhat forgotten about Leo Laporte’s sex swing.

Adam Curry has not forgotten, and he referenced it on the No Agenda podcast he co-hosts with John C. Dvorak, episode 911 at around the 2hr 22m mark.

Listen to the clip below.

Can you just imagine Leo and Lisa using this thing?

Leo Laporte Uses Racist Slur (Gypsy) to Describe Florence Ion

Florence Ion’s reaction to being called a gypsy

It’s easy to almost feel sorry for Leo Laporte these days. Look at this crappy panel he gathered for TWiT, the show that once brought luminaries of our day:

  • Florence Ion (contract host for All About Android)
  • Alex Wilhelm (John C. Dvorak wannabe)
  • Peter Rojas (how’s GDGT going?)

What’s not so easy to forgive is his casual racism. He called Florence Ion a gypsy over and over until Peter corrected him. Leo Laporte used that learning moment to spew more stereotypes of the Romani people, asking her if she has a violin and requesting that she play it for him. He did all of this in a stupid accent, of course.

This is not the first time he’s done something like this. In previous shows and live copyright infringements, he’s stated that some black people “all look alike”, and he thought “nigras” was an acceptable term for black people as well. He didn’t really correct Megan Morrone’s racism, but it at least made him uncomfortable.

What a sick fuck.
