Wes Butters is a cunt: the re-up

Editor’s note: Herein is a post first published by ILB in March 2010 that was taken down for various unspecified reasons. We feel the time has come to republish it. Please note that all words herein are exactly the same as written in March 2010 and have not been edited for the sake of journalistic integrity/innate laziness.

The more observant among you, or those of you who get here by doing things other than searching for “ashley young webcam wanking”, will have noticed that this site has been pathetically low on content for the past month. Some of you may have defected to just reading Combat Jack go “I knew the first time I saw Loon that he was going to be a superstar, PS racism is bad” instead. But there’s mitigating circumstances, y’all. For the past month, I have been living under constant threat of losing my job because of this blog, a former Radio 1 DJ, and a light-hearted libelous quip.

Allow me to break it down. A few weeks back, I was called into my boss’s boss’s office. I was asked if the name Wes Butters meant anything to me. Being a little unsure of what was going on, I thought he may have been talking about the humorous South Park supporting character Leopold “Butters” Stotch. I was told to guess again. I then recalled the name of the man who hosted Radio 1’s Chart Show during the period it lost listeners at an unprecedented rate for any national radio show, before vanishing entirely from the public sphere, Mr Wes Butters. Now this is where it gets jokes.

If you look at this link here, you will notice a comment about Wesley from long-time friend and reader of ILB, laconic Brummie left-footer “F”. Previously, underneath that comment, was a jocular riposte from us detailing a, we now understand to be fictitious, sex act that certainly did not take place between Wes and a much-loved elder statesmen of British radio. Brief googling will bring up a bunch of message boards detailing this false, libellous claim as well.

Wes Butters, or at least his solicitor, had instructed my work place that “one of their employees had made an actionable comment”, and what were they planning on doing about this?

Now, stop and think here. This was a comment made eight months ago, on a message board post that has never really broken 300 views. Wes Butters, or his lawyers, had not left a comment on this blog. They hadn’t emailed me personally. They hadn’t asked WordPress for my contact details, or indeed used the readily available “report an offensive post” method of getting WordPress to shut shit down. No, Mr Butters and his legal team had worked out my government name, then GONE TO FUCKING LINKEDIN.COM TO WORK OUT WHERE I WORK, and contacted my workplace directly. Presumably because Mr Butters has failed to find any work in the five years since Chart Show gig vanished that he wants everyone else to sign on as well.

I mean, seriously, you can tell how big a cunt you are when people actively prefer JK and Joel to you.

Anyway, work PCs, work time…. bottom line is your superhero blogger has survived to work another day. But Wes Butters is now an enemy of this blog, and should be an enemy of anyone who works on the daily grind collecting an honest paycheque for doing an honest day’s job without having vindictive clapped-out jingle-button pressers trying to get them fired so they can enjoy the sexual release of still pretending they wield some power in media.
