Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. A couple days ago Matt Forney posted a new Maxim article that describes how Tucker Max is now trying to reinvent himself as some kind of dating advice guru in the vein of Dr. Drew. I’m not sure what’s more disturbing, that Tucker Max is actually trying to pull this off or that his “fans” seem to be lapping this right up.
The Maxim article reads more like a South Park script (perhaps a sequel to the now infamous “PC Principal” episode) than it does reality. Check out some of his direct quotes from the article:
“Dude,” Max growls. “You’re very presumptive and paternalistic. Don’t tell her what she wants or deserves. It’s this weird sexism, guys who think, ‘I’m a nice guy,’ but actually they’re sexist because they think, ‘I have to be responsible for everything this woman thinks and feels.’”
Max goes on, working himself up: “You haven’t even considered asking her what she wants from the relationship! As long as you’re honest and respectful and she knows what direction you’re going, then she can make a decision about the relationship based on accurate information.”
Tucker Max or PC Principal, it’s almost indistinguishable isn’t it? And where did he find the tranny he put on the cover his new dating advice book, looks like Bruce Jenner!
According to the article, Tucker Max is now married with children but his past has hardly been forgotten. His Maxim interviewer couldn’t help but mention his alleged sex tape:
It’s all pretty rich coming from a guy who once charmed an aspiring model over a romantic dinner of stone-crab claws washed down with two $110 bottles of merlot, then had his buddy hide in a closet and film them having anal sex without informing her she was on camera. “She thought we were dating,” he wrote in I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. “I knew better, but she was way too hot to bother correcting her assumption.”
It seems to me like Tucker Max is just selling a different brand of bullshit. After seeing his interview on Opie and Anthony I have my doubts about how many of his stories are actually true. Besides, even back in late 90’s and early 2000’s before the advent of Social Justice Warriors and microagressions wouldn’t taping a girl while you bang her without her knowledge still have been a pretty serious crime? Why didn’t this chick come forward and sue the shit out of him if not have him thrown in jail? Oh yea, because there never was any tape, like his new dating guru persona, it was just so much bullshit he spun out of whole cloth to sell books.
That the Maxim article alleges his shitty new podcast has already received more than 2 million downloads gives me even less faith in human race than I had yesterday. Come on dudes, for the sake of mankind, grow a pair and find a better role model than this lying loser douchebag.
