It’s been a matter of days since fans learned of Leah Messer’s new boyfriend.
While they want to be happy for her, they can’t help but be a little worried at a series of hastily-deleted videos that fans uncovered.
Across multiple strange videos, Leah’s new boo begs for meth. Oh dear.
Just a short time ago, there was a series of disturbing YouTube videos about a West Virginia Meth Man.
One was titled “West Virginia meth man finds his woman?” And yes, Jason Jordan was the man in question.
“Reckon I could be persuaded, given you’re providing some meth,” Leah’s new boyfriend said on camera.
“Maybe we could talk a little bit?” he continued, suggesting: “Maybe meet up? Have a drink? Maybe? I need my meth!”
In a subsequent video, he resorted to singing.
“Bout to go score me some meth!” he sang. “Meth, I love you. I shoot it in my veins. I snort it up my nose. I smoke it in a pip. Meth, meth, meth, you’re my best friend.”
Remember the world’s collective horror when that elevator video showed Ray Rice punch his fiancee?
Unfortunately, Jason Jordan had some commentary on that.
“Just want to make a little comment about Ray Rice,” he said in yet another West Virginia Meth Man video.
If you’re thinking that there’s no way that this can end well … you’re right.
“Think he can go around punching women in the mouth?” he asked. “Knocking them out cold?!”
The now-deleted video continues: “When I was high on meth one time, I did it and nobody got mad at me!”
“They just expect it out of me,” Jason Jordan concluded.
In his very first video in the YouTube series, he at least avoided joking about domestic violence while referring to meth.
“You do meth for six months,” he lamented on camera. “And people think there is something wrong with you.”
“Come on!” he said. “Everybody’s doing it! I’m fine!”
While all of that would understandably make anyone cringe, let’s be clear — this is not a series of videos of confessing to using drugs.
Instead, these are strange parody videos that Jordan made with the hope of amusing himself and others.
“My meth man videos got me kicked off fb lol,” he tweeted after getting banned from Facebook.
He then advertised that they would be appearing on YouTube … and provided a little context.
“Jason Jordan meth man on YouTube lol,” his tweet continued. “Making fun of West Virginia meth addicts lol.”
So no, Jason Jordan isn’t a meth addict who begs for meth on the internet.
He has just, in the past, exhibited wildly questionable taste. Perhaps he was hoping that his “edgy humor” would make him achieve viral fame.
You have to actually be funny for that, folks.
Whatever it is that Leah sees in him, we hope that it’s not a sense of humor.
But we’re happy for her that she’s moving on romantically. And since he’s deleted these videos, it looks like he’s embarrassed about that chapter of his life online.
If he had tried to defend them, well … that would be another story. If all that someone’s done is cracked some bad jokes, let them move on.
