I wanted to say my piece about the tom milsom situation, and it didn’t feel appropriate for me to do that on instagram, which is why I’m back here.
I, like the rest his fans and friends, am extremely upset and disappointed. I look(ed) up to Tom as a huge inspiration. It seemed to me that he embodied qualities of a person that would be amazing to know. He (or from the way he portrayed himself), seemed like an extremely talented, intelligent, good-looking and eloquent musician, youtuber and person. Although I may have heard of Tom around the time he would have been with Olga, I wasn’t a fan, didn’t watch his videos and therefore can’t comment on the way he portrayed his relationship to Olga at the time.
It’s strange because for about the past 3 weeks I’ve been watching all of his videos and obsessingly listening to his music and finding out about his life via twitter. And now this.
But I don’t want people to feel sorry him. People should be comforting Olga, and for the most part they are.
I feel like I can’t fully comment until Tom has released a statement, because however horrible this is, and I don’t believe Olga would have made these accusations, there are two sides to every story.
I think DFTBA have done the right thing, taking his music off their website, and SiTC taking him off the line-up. I also applaud John and Hank, Dean Dobbs, Liam Dryden and Mickeleh for commenting on the situation, and think that is a strong thing for them to do.
To conclude for the time being; Olga is so brave so speaking up, I’m still waiting for Tom’s statement, but if it ruins his career (music, YouTube and otherwise) it is his own doing and he shouldn’t be felt sorry for.
