Turkey Tom (born: August 16, 2002 (2002-08-16) [age 18]) is an American commentary YouTuber who makes commentary videos mainly focused around criticizing other YouTubers and their content. He has also made videos about websites such as Reddit and DeviantArt, as well as an assortment of various other topics.

He is also part of the Half Baked Podcast along with Nicholas DeOrio and Lord Vega.

Controversies

Mr Enter Situation

Sometime in 2018, Tom had made a video about the largely controversial cartoon reviewer TheMysteriousMrEnter. In said video he insults Mr. Enter by calling him an "incompetent fool who has no idea what he's doing". Tom also made jokes and other statements implicating that Enter was a pedophile, although Enter has stated multiple times that he is asexual. Tom also claimed that Enter had made pedophilic illustrations in the past, which wasn't true. After Mr Enter made his response video about his online harassment with Tom's cruel actions being mentioned in it, he took the video down and has since distanced himself from the Mr. Enter drama.

Spechie

In his "TheOdd1sOut, Tim Tom, Spechie & Tabbes: Criticism Not Welcome" video, he talks about Spechie who was infamous in the past for her rude and spiteful videos, as well as her dismissal of criticism. Tom revealed that Spechie had blocked him on Twitter to provide examples of her rejecting criticism. However, it turned out that Tom had actually been blocked for a tweet in which he said that Spechie had gotten, "really fucking fat lately", which he notably did not include in the video.

Slazo/Squizzy situation

In June 2019, Reddit/commentary YouTuber Slazo was falsely accused of sexual abuse by his ex-girlfriend. After DMs were leaked implicating several YouTubers in assisting the ex-girlfriend, Tom uploaded a video on the situation.[1] In it, in addition to bringing the alleged conspiracy to light, Tom also revealed a DM conversation he had with a friend of one of the accusers, Hyojin Choi, known as squizzy on YouTube. In it, the person accuses Choi of abusing a dog by dropping it on its back. Despite the lack of any other evidence, Tom prominently featured the allegations in the video, knowing that they were fake as he intended to show Choi how false allegations felt like.

When the allegations were thoroughly debunked, Tom responded by stating he wasn't treating them as fact because he addressed them as allegations. He also refused to apologize, stating "At least we got some good memes out of it."[2]

In the follow-up video on the Slazo situation, he also drew attention to Choi's NSFW account. This account featured drawings of Choi engaged in sexual acts with her friends. One such friend, Eileen9Tails, was 15 when she was drawn by an 18-year old Hyojin. Because of this, Tom suspected that Hyojin was a pedophile.[3]

In July 2019, Choi announced that she was going to kill herself in a Twitter post and was reportedly hospitalized. In response, Tom privated, then edited the titles of his videos on the Slazo situation, he then apologized and said that the people who harassed her did not listen to the initial disclaimer of the video.

Racism And Anti-Semitism Accusations

In November 2019, Twitter user and YouTuber D'Angelo Wallace accused Tom of using anti-Semitic remarks/imagery in his video on YouTube sponsors, which attracted antisemitic comments from his audience.[4] The remarks in question included jokes made at the expense of Ethan Klein (who is Jewish) and a 20-second skit about the USS Liberty, an American research ship accidentally attacked by Israeli forces in 1967. Tom denied any anti-Semitic material was used in the video.[5]

A few days later, Wallace leaked DMs from over the previous year showing Tom repeatedly using the N-word in a racist and derogatory manner, and commenting on how his higher Patreon tiers were for "Jews with deep pockets".[6] Though Wallace did not initially have a way to verify the DMs, Tom admitted they were genuine. He denied any racism accusations, claiming they were edgy jokes, that the DMs were "a year old," and that "saying the n word does not make you racist."[7]

Pyrocynical Situation

On October 29th, 2020, a Twitter user alleged that Pyrocynical had groomed him when he was 15 years old. According to the user, Pyrocynical had sent them drawn NSFW and fetish media. It was mainly wildly dismissed by people like Diasel Patches, PrisonMateLuke, and Sensitive Soci3ty and the allegations were considered as false, more evidence was provided on October 31st, 2020 via a TwitLonger and Imgur link containing a Twitter DM that occurred between the accused and Pyrocynical's girlfriend, Ida. This evidence was largely dismissed as well due to multiple inconsistencies, such as how the accused never contacted authorities and used the word "grooming" incorrectly. On November 10th, 2020, Pyrocynical addressed these allegations via a Reddit post on his subreddit, dismissing them and providing additional information such as how the accused lied about their age and remained in contact with him until September 2020[8].

In response to both the original statements made by Pyrocynical and the Twitter user, Turkey Tom uploaded a video on December 1st, 2020, titled "Pyrocynical's Lie: Setting The Record Straight," in which he claimed that Pyrocynical had lied about not knowing his accuser's age.[9] Five days later, on December 6, Turkey Tom published a Google Document titled "Proving Pyrocynical's Guilt: Debunking Every Argument," in which he set out to prove Pyrocynical's guilt with regards to the allegations, refuting several of the arguments that both Pyrocynical and his defenders had made. Finally, four days after that, on December 10, Turkey Tom uploaded a video titled "The Pyrocynical Files (+New Leaks)." While at first, reception to Turkey Tom's videos had been mostly positive and many commentary channels now believed Pyrocynical was at fault, public perception changed yet again when Pyrocynical released a full statement on his YouTube channel calling Turkey Tom dishonest and claiming that he painted a false narrative about the situation.[10] Turkey Tom then made a response a few days after Pyrocynical's response, that got sharp backlash.[11] The video now sits at over 88,000 dislikes to 10,000 likes.

Return

On 2nd March 2021, Tom announced his return back after a long silence. He then uploaded his next video[12]. Many of his fans supported his return, whilst many outsiders of his channel condemned and criticized him for his previous actions that he still hadn't apologized for.

Once he returned he began[13] uploading[14] every[15] day[16] for[17] a[18] week[19], ending with a video about how Leafy thought he was Zaptie[20]. At first, his videos were mass disliked, but gradually, this slowed down. He made several videos on controversial YouTuber[21][22] FuturisticHub and his twin brother, which resulted in FuturisticHub sending him several threats, saying things such as Tom's face was "going to end up worse than the old people in Midsommar"[23].
