This is pretty top tier hahahahha
Damnnnnnn. I was never a fan of Joshua but I love this
Life has absolutely kicked Josh’s ass in recent years but you know what. He’s more real and likeable now. And not the cheesy, “everything is so perfect” facade he had when he was with Collusion.
Lmao Collusion 💀
For context: he was commenting on the statues in his hometown that are being removed.
I’m no fan, and this may be unpopular, but I don’t think we can snark Josh for not moving on. He’s never really “spoken his truth”. It’s gotta weigh heavily on him. Instead of getting it ALL off his chest, he lets little bits and pieces out every now and then.
Yeah, imagine millions of teenagers shit on you constantly when you were the one that had their heart broken. It would bug me too, even if I had moved on from the relationship itself.
Not just shit on you, but literal death threats. He had to hire security for a public event he was a participant at soon after the divorce announcement.
I think he’s over the relationship but he’s not over the trauma her minions caused him.
Oh. I'm absolutely not snarking. I'm applauding his snark.
Is this recent?
Yes, from yesterday!
First of all, TEA. But man i get so conflicted over this. Because yes, colleen is awful, but idk how i would feel about this tweet if i was Pamela you know?
If I was Pamela, I'd want him to blast the truth once and for all, for his own benefit and to let the natural consequences work themselves out. You can see what good it's done for him to keep everything tight lipped. Playing the bigger person only pays off when you can do it in a way that still holds that other person accountable for what they've done, otherwise you're still left carrying their burden (secrets and shame) as your own.
I can see that but can u please correct me if I’m wrong? Isn’t he implying Colleen jokes about incest because its a part of her past? That would be a fucked up truth to put on blast
I read this as ‘I’m not grieving my relationship or honouring Colleen in my memory, I was traumatized by her and I’ve learned, grown and am moving on’
I don’t think that’s what he was aiming for. I think he was just alluding to the fact that C makes disgusting jokes about incest and pedophilia, not necessarily because she experienced those things during her childhood. If she actually does have trauma from her childhood, I truly don’t think Josh would make fun of it.
That’s true. Her incest jokes are what bother me the most about her content!
Especially since her audience is mainly younger people. It seems as if she encourages incestuous/pedophilic behavior. It’s disgusting.
And she may have buried it so deeply that he may not know, if she DID experience said trauma.
Also possible. She seems to share way too much on social media, so I honestly find it doubtful that there is still trauma that hasn’t been blasted for views. Who knows though.

It’s an analogy comparing Colleen to slavers, these confused racist Georgians are sad bc a statue is taken down of an awful human who did awful things. That’s dumb, likewise Josh is saying it would be dumb for him to care about a figurative statue of Colleen’s lipstick and incest jokes. It’s a put down
I was married to a man who was previously married to a complete lunatic. I never minded him talking about her to me or anyone else especially as it wasn't with affection. It was important and traumatic part of his past and not something he ever should have repressed to save my feelings.
It could just be that Pamela is really secure in their relationship. In my opinion, if a partner wants you to pretend that your previous relationships didn't exist then you're probably in for one heck of a jealousy driven ride
Josh is allowed to have a past and embrace it as part of his story, not to never allude to it or breathe of it again like Coleslaw
Plus just last week that video was posted about her making a dig about her “past relationship” during her “meet and greet” and saying she wanting to do things different aka meeting Erik sooner. Just like you said, Josh has every right to say his own perspective also!
I'd want him to get over his ex wife and stop mentioning her.
I need to see more josh snark I’ve heard so much about it but haven’t seen any till this!!
Yes! I would love a breakdown of it
This video has some juicy IG comments Josh was leaving post divorce, seems he wasn’t holding back which I love!!!! Poor guy. https://youtu.be/UztVu_sPUd0
💯💯💯💯💯 I’ve scoured this sub but can be hard to find!!
“lisstick and incest jokes”
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 I almost peed myself!!!
oh he haaaates her lmfao
My roommate/best friend will be snarky about his ex and mother of his kid. He’s got custody and anytime the ex has something to say to him that’s not child related, he just says uh huh or Unh uh. Hes just learned to not argue.
He’ll tell me things she did and he tells it so nonchalantly, you’d think he was talking about what to watch on tv. Horrible things. It’s been 6 years since they were together but the venting and getting validation that yes, she treated him lower than scum, helps him so much.
I can only imagine if they had been a public couple and he was kind of bullied into keeping his mouth shut. That’s some fucked up stuff. I hope he snarks all he wants.
Wow he went in!!!! Love to see it
I imagine red lipstick is a huge turnoff for him, lol
lol josh lives in my city and i’ve seen him and pamela at the grocery store
😆 I’m glad he doesn’t really seem to vlog anymore.
I was in a brief relationship that was abusive 4 years ago and it STILL haunts me. It still affects my ability to accept love and trust love, even though I’m with a genuinely amazing and kind and gentle partner. When I think about how he was with Colleen for what, nine years?? And she pulled the rug out from under him like that. I can’t imagine. I think it will take him a verrrry long time to heal from that kind of a shock. I really feel for him. And the fact that the relationship was ended so suddenly on one side is so telling. When someone abruptly ends a relationship like that, they’ve got seriousssss issues.
S tier analogy from Josh
Savaaaaage Josh is my favorite
This tea is SCALDING 🫖
just because he mentions his past doesn’t mean he “is not over C.” he has a lot of trauma & has come a super long way from drinking away his pain. i am proud of him and i know his wife is too.
Yeah anyone who's had narc abuse knows that it's the kind of pain that just keeps on giving. As the years go on your brain keeps making connections on something an individual did to manipulate and desensitize you in the past, and how that impacts your thoughts and reactions for many years to come. It's something you have to continuously grieve for a very long time, but the frequency of those realizations eventually goes down. You gotta let the pain out in whatever way helps.
This trophy is for Josh.🏆 Keep fighting the good fight lmaooo
He won. He won the day. 😂
always disliked him but this was good lmao
Ok, I’m a bit out of the loop: I must’ve missed what he meant by incest jokes. Can anyone elaborate please?
He’s referring to C making jokes as Miranda and her inappropriate relationship with her uncle.
Thank you - I had thought something more recent happened that I missed. Lol
Miranda makes a lot of incest jokes, her main one being a creepy relationship with her uncle
Oh I see now. I thought something more recent had happened - thanks!
When was this posted?
Damnnn the tea is HOT! I might go have to follow him and I’m not even a Joshua fan
Lol I think he deleted it
I still see it!
I remember when he vlogged himself walking down the isle getting married to Colleen. If a guy did that at my wedding I’d just be like “ well so much for this” and leave lol
WE STAN. i love him
HOLYYY SHHIIIIEEETTT my jaw dropped!!! LOOL!!! Omg he deff lurks here hahahah
ohohoho what did I miss???!
I feel the need to say “moving on” doesn’t mean “never mention it again”. That would be what C has done since the day they announced their divorce and we give her a ton of crap for it here. Let’s let Josh be able to acknowledge it happened and was instrumental in shaping his early adult life. I also want to point out that Josh did love C and didn’t want a divorce, so to be “indifferent” would just be out of spite when that’s not how he actually felt. It’s healthy to express yourself and not be disingenuous or self betraying for ulterior motives.
I guess I figure anything he says there will be comments like this about needing to “move on” which is why I generalized. His tweet didn’t seem shady to me, maybe a bit flippant, but yeah. You have to put yourself in his shoes and recognize that he has/had some really strong feelings, and those experiences were real for him. He’s undoubtedly thought and talked (he’s been to therapy according to him) about it all enough to recognize his trauma and feel it’s normalized enough to him to be able to mention it. It’s okay to be able to casually/flippantly talk about trauma imo. 🤷 Internalized shame isn’t healthy for anyone, especially an addict. On the other hand, C has a lot of unprocessed trauma to work through and it’s clear with how emotional she is when she talks about it that she hasn’t processed it. Josh was there at one point too and it was messy. I guess I mention that because I think it’s unfair to compare Josh bringing up some well-understood triggers (lipstick) to C’s trauma dumping. They’re not the same (to me).
I’m so glad you said this. I was thinking the exact same, he was a full participant and promoter of this behavior. Yes, everyone can change and learn. Change and learning means moving on and not bringing certain things up when it’s convenient for you.
Yeah, he was fine with lipstick and incest jokes for years though right? And if Coal didn’t dump him he would 100% still be okay with them 🙄
I’m tired of this vague BS from him. He’s a grown ass man, just say what happened if you want to or move on completely. You can private your SM if you want.
Nah this is mad immature like dude MOVE ON, he made a completely different situation and turned it around to make it about Colleen. Jesus!! If I was Pamela I’d be so confused as to why my husband can’t stop talking about her.
I think dude was brainwashed, personally. I think she was prob way more manipulative than we think. Also just pure speculation, but I think he’s still feeling embarrassed that his marriage fell apart in front of everyone and she made him look like a fool… maybe making fun of her just makes him feel better? Not saying it isn’t immature… but damn she really did a number on him, huh.
I don’t think we can confidently say that “she must of done a number on him” I actually think that’s pretty sexist and contributes to the villianization of women as a result of mens bad behaviour/lack of emotional regulation and maturity. I think it’s kind weird to blame her for doing a number on him. It’s been many years, at some point he needs to learn to move on and be emotional mature.
Not excuse colleens behaviour, two things can be true at once, but he needs to let it go, especially out of respect for his current wife.
That being said, again, who are we to tell someone how and when to “move on”?
Hm I think after he’s married to someone else would be a start! I can’t imagine how Pamela feels when he’s constantly talking about her or making comments, it’s so disrespectful to her.
We know Colleen and Josh were toxic to each other, but it’s time to move on and stop publicly writing digs about her especially with a wife. I know I can’t be the only one on this thread that feels that way.
Ok. Still think she was manipulative and therefore abusive. Not saying he’s innocent.
Wow that was douchey of him after all this time. He should stop at least for his wife’s sake. not cute
It was in a reply to someone he’s friends with and has supported him, so I don’t think of it as douchey as it would be if it was a main tweet.
I think it’s douchey no matter who sees it. It’s the opposite of ‘moving on’
I will always chuckle a little when someone takes a dig at Colon. Who are we to say how and when someone should move on?
Isn’t he married?
You know he’s married. Like I said, it was in a reply to a friend- not a stan. I don’t know Josh or Pamela, but it’s quite possible she’s secure enough in their relationship that a tweet that’s a little bit of an inside joke about his past wouldn’t destroy her. His entire past is out there for everyone to see- the good and the ugly. Why pretend it didn’t happen like Coldblooded does?
I understand you’re a supporter. Not looking to fight. Didn’t 100% know if he still was married. I wasn’t criticizing your post either. I don’t think it looks cute that’s all. Please accept my opinion. It doesn’t have to agree with yours.
Oh I 100% support your opinion. I don’t know why you’re getting downvoted. I wouldn’t even say I’m a Josh supporter… I just support everyone over Coleslaw 😝💜
