Earlier today, George Watsky did a dumb thing (stage diving off a very high rigging) at the Warped Tour and injured some people including himself. When I first heard about it I pretty much couldn’t breathe because no one knew if he was OK and not only is he a great friend of mine, but he’s like a genuine national treasure.
So I freaked out, Katherine freaked out, all we knew was that he didn’t get up after the jump and was taken away on a stretcher. We called in some YouTube connections and learned that he was at the hospital but conscious and OK.
I didn’t want to say anything about it until I saw how George handled the situation, which, of course, he faced in head on and talked about how he was an irresponsible dumbass.
If you’ve ever been an irresponsible dumbass and are wondering how to properly handle the situation, take a cue from George.
