I don't know if this is late, but Prison Mate Luke has stated Shannon greatly inspired him and he took her side on the Peaches drama.Oh, I agree. I'm just more surprised than anything. I would even argue that he got big over the Hopeless Peaches thing more so than YanDev. I mean he definitely milked that but his Peaches video is still up and Peaches has left Youtube. My personal conspiracy is PML and CSA were working together somehow. But mostly I'm surprised he hasn't been called out at all. No one asking why HE hasn't said anything. But if you go and look at his Peaches video he didn't come up with that himself, he was spoonfed by Shannon, I feel, you know?
Other Youtubers were quick to point out that PML inherited Shannon's worst traits (such as lack of research) and a video celebrated his channel's death: "Commentary Graveyard" or something.
