Controversy

Sr Pelo / Every Storytime Animation

On July 31, 2019, Sr Pelo uploaded a video titled 'Every StoryTime Animation', which was basically a parody of all storytime animators. However, Arin wasn't happy with the animation, saying things like he got made fun of making cartoons and it would just hurt his feelings. He also calls out Newgrounds animators for patting Pelo on the back, despite Arin being an animator along with others. Sr Pelo reaches out to Arin saying it wasn't meant to hurt anyone, and he would make a video explaining all the jokes. But people like OneyPlays told Pelo that he shouldn't change his humor just because of this. One day later, Arin makes an apology post, not for the controversy, but for being an edgy animator. Pelo had said that he and Arin had spoken and they were cool with each other.
