When an adult throws a temper tantrum like a child does when he doesn't get what or things don't go the way they want. The adult acts like a child by yelling, throwing things, bitching, pouting, and in extreme cases cries, when they don't get what they want or things go against them.
Wow Austin had an "episode" at lunch when his water glass got empty. You should seen the "episode" he had the other day when the waitress brought his salad, and it had croutons and cucumbers on it, after he asked them not to put them on it.

Please don't do that because Austin will have one of his "episodes," and we will have to listen to him all day!!!!!!!

Hym "My guy.... Every episode now, every other word out of your mouth is a cut at me (in between proclaiming your moral righteousness to the heavens that your filthy God beast may spare you from the horror and depravity of the world). And yes. They are also doing the thing you are doing. The people you are informing don't shop at that store and the people at that store don't watch your show. Way to gaslight your fans though. I'm really enjoying this because I said (initially) that people were doing the thing you're doing and you've all done me the service of proving me correct. You have my undying gratitude."

Iam "This is not something you should be doing to people. Regardless of whether or not you think they deserve it. All you've done is proven that you're perfectly fine with using your enemy's methodology. You being relatively less wrong does not make it ok for you to use that same Orwellian tactics that they use. I watch what's his face redefine words just like they do. You try to doublespeak me out of existence. You're not better than me you piece of shit. Go fuck yourself."

Hym "And no I'm not going to stop watching you. I need more material to steal. Because that's fair game apparently."
