Justin Carmical (April 11, 1971 − January 23, 2014 [Aged 42]), better known online as JewWario, was a YouTuber who uploaded gaming videos. On February 15, 2013, JewWario announced via his Tumblr that he was moving on from TGWTG, but he still planned to continue You Can Play This and work on the FamiKamen Rider project.
On January 23, 2014, Justin's wife announced on Facebook that he had taken his life via shooting himself with a shotgun. She wrote that he had locked himself in the bathroom, as well as a heartfelt “thank you” to fans for supporting him and his videos. Justin noted he was having financial troubles at the time, as well as dealing with ongoing depression.
Former or current reviewers to the site had paid their respects, as well as YouTubers and fans, TheSpoonyOne still owning Justin’s iconic hat.
Sexual Abuse Allegations
On April 2, 2018, many former 'TGWTG' and 'Channel Awesome' producers contributed to a detailed document titled "Not So Awesome", where they detail their abuse as well as neglect, misconduct, and manipulation at the hands of CEO Mike Michaud, Doug Walker, and Rob Walker, including the poor management and favoritism of the site.
One contributor, referring to herself as "Jane Doe", disclosed that she had been groomed and sexually abused by a TGWTG producer while not disclosing the name of the person. On April 11, 2018, Channel Awesome released a statement titled "Our Response" in which they respond to several of the former producer's grievances with Jane Doe being the first. In their response to her, screencaps of chatlogs are shown in which they discuss how to deal with the problem producer in question. Despite redacting the producer's name, in the second screencap cap, it's shown that the chat had taken place on February 12, 2013, a Tuesday. It's shown that the producer would be terminated from TGWTG on Friday, February 15, 2013, the day in which Justin Carmical reportedly left the site and inadvertently revealing Carmical to be the alleged sexual deviant.
On April 11, 2018, it was revealed that he was terminated by Channel Awesome over sexual misconduct accusations, which has tarnished his reputation.
On April 12, 2018, a Reddit user revealed that she had allegedly been raped by Carmical in her sleep after making several attempts to convince him to leave her alone. The alleged legitimacy of the post has since been confirmed by former TGWTG forum admin Holly Christine Brown and former TGWTG producer Jacob Chapman (JesuOtaku).
