Which resulted in him burning 8000$ of Pokémon cards.” Their post to this classic Reddit sub has sparked outrage at the YouTuber friend, and commenters have been quick to assure the user that they are not at fault in this and should get the police involved.
“Yeah, he sounds like a complete dickwad.” said user solstice gilder. “Go to the police; he destroyed your property. It’s him who needs to grow up, and he needs to face reality. He shouldn’t get away with it. This is not a prank; he stole your stuff and destroyed it.”
“If he smashed your $8000 car, you’d go to the cops.” suggested user existential prices. “If you’re not that kind of person, become that kind of person because that’s what you need to be real. This moment will define how you let people treat you for years to come.”
