Terrible showing by the reddit mod. They don’t get the point of the sub that they mod at all.

All they needed to say is that many jobs people do at the moment don’t offer reasonable working conditions and reasonable pay. Particularly in a world where remuneration for senior management has soared.

Wow, what a bad performance. This mod has a grainy camera, nervously shakes back and forth, and makes garbage points. Very sad to see this as the face of antiwork

I don’t want to make fun of people’s personal appearance, but this is the incarnation of what everyone thinks a Reddit mod looks like.

Who thought it was a good idea to have this 30-year-old dog walker go on a commercial capitalist network like Fox News to represent their ideology? I would imagine that the goal of the appearance on the show is to spread their philosophy, but instead, they just reinforced what every boomer thinks of progressive values: “Millenials are lazy, greasy leeches on society!”.

While there is nothing inherently wrong with his job or appearance, they have to play the game if they want to move for change. A haircut, better camera, clean background and preparation for the main points they want to get across should be bare minimum.

Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake

Going into this I thought the fox presenter wouldn’t let him get a word in, instead, he just lets the mod go on since she’s isn’t explaining herself well anyways, pretty sure this isn’t the one you want representing ‘the movement’.

I can’t even get through the whole video because it’s making me cringe so god damn hard. I don’t claim to know much about the “antiwork” movement but I don’t think they could’ve picked a worse person to lead their cause. The absolute picture perfect personification of a Reddit Mod™

I had to stop watching halfway. This interview was well beyond what the mod was prepared for and ended up being a poor representation of that community.

“I work 20-25 hours a week but would like to work less”. Jesus, it’s almost as if he was trying to make points for FOX.

Antiwork had an opportunity to talk about their movement and they send somebody who walks dogs 20hrs a week. They were doomed from the start.

Who thought this was a good idea? You took a literal embodiment of what people joke mods looked like and put him on here. Did they not realize they were only having him on there to shit on him? Like holy shit r/antiwork. You just set back the purpose of the sub.

All jokes about the stereotypical mod appearance aside, they really did a poor job at answering the host’s questions. I mean, it sounds like they don’t even know what the sub is about. I particularly liked how they want to teach philosophy if the dog walking thing doesn’t work out.

This was such a terrible move for the /r/antiwork subreddit and the movement as a whole. I seriously can’t wrap my head around this one. **This is not an attack on personal appearance**, but that is not who you want for your spokesperson. An ideal spokesperson would be someone that’s college educated, well dressed, well-spoken and can look at the camera while not fidget in their chair the entire time. It’s important to remember the core demographic for Fox News when agreeing to give an interview on National Television.

Why the mod team decided to give Fox an interview at all is puzzling. Jesus Christ.

EDIT: Thank you for the gold.

This is, unfortunately, how the rest of the world views Reddit mods – the optics are poor because the bad apples get the most attention. The really sad part is that the anti work mods are now working, for free, to support a site making billions. They are the greatest form of irony you can currently find on the internet.

LMAO This 30 year old dog walker is one of the goons that talked down to me for interjecting real world labor union shop experience in comments in r/antiwork. What a fuckin joke

good answer: “it’s not about being lazy, it’s about being pro-union, pro worker’s rights, people knowing their true value and being paid a living wage.”

Doreen’s answer: “laziness is a virtue.

The thread when it was on was hilarious.

“They’re talking about us!!!! Finally something will change!!”

I’ve been on this platform for 9 years now.

This is without a doubt, the most *Reddit* video I’ve ever seen.
