Colin Moriarty, a co-founder of the YouTube channel Kinda Funny, announced today that he will be resigning from the company. His resignation comes less than a week after Colin posted a harmless joke to Twitter that some found controversial and humorless.
Colin has worked in the video game entertainment industry for several years, starting out at IGN, and leaving to co-found Kinda Funny with his friends. The group raised tens of thousands of dollars via crowdfunding on Patreon, and eventually started a podcast and partnered with RoosterTeeth by joining their LetsPlay channel.
Throughout the years, Colin has been outspoken regarding his conservative views, and has been at odds with the rest of the gaming entertainment industry, including his own friends and co-founders of Kinda Funny.
On Wednesday, March 8th, the hashtag #ADayWithoutAWoman trended on Twitter as women across the nation skipped work and attended protests and rallies. It was on this day that the liberals viciously attacked Colin and attempted to end his career.
What is the horrible, career-ending joke, you ask?
Following the joke, many of Kinda Funny’s own fans began to attack the co-founder. While some Twitter users found the joke harmless and funny, others found it to be offensive and ‘sexist’, a word that liberals tend to throw around thoughtlessly.
And I don’t know about you guys, but I personally found Colin’s joke to be kinda funny. Ha. Get it?
Unfortunately, his colleague, Greg Miller, did not feel the same. Miller posted a statement regarding the controversy, and stated that “the Tweet was with poor taste.” Miller then announced that Colin decided he would not be attending PAX East to make sure that his presence would not distract any attendees from the fun of the weekend.
Little did we know that not only would he be missing out on this annual gaming festival, but he would also be leaving the company entirely.

“It’s with a heavy heart and great sadness that I announce my resignation from Kinda Funny, effective immediately,” Colin wrote. “This morning, the guys and I had a constructive conversation, and feel that, with our separate visions for the future and for the direction of the company, it’s time to go our separate ways. I want to be clear that this was my decision.”
But don’t worry, Colin fans, this is not the end.
“Opportunities are already popping up for me, bringing me in a new different, and exciting direction that I feel makes perfect sense for me.Obviously you haven’t seen or heard the last of me. Far from it.”
Maybe Colin will venture into something more political. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
