I am usually not one to judge you in a few tweets, but wow this guy is proud of them. I am actually kinda sad that people like him have a platform to voice their hate. Won't say much since is all over twitter, but just wanted to raise awareness.
Tae'lur which I follow, and some other devs tweeted about it.
Tae'lur in ATL ➡️ TorontoI'm collecting a growing list of tweets by John Sonmez aka Simple Programmr. For those unaware of his influence, he is a well known YouTuber in the tech community who makes content targeting ppl learning how to code.

Another tweet by Michael Dowden:
Michael DowdenToday John Sonmez (@simpleprogrammr, @jsonmez) has violated every reasonable code of conduct. I normally would just report & block, but someone with 47k followers in our industry who is behaving this way deserves to be called out publicly for such gross behavior.03:55 AM - 21 Oct 2019
Another tweet by Quincy Larson:
Quincy Larson@simpleprogrammr @Aimee_Knight There was a time when I looked up to John Sonmez.
But his behavior in this thread is inexcusable.
He's showing us his true nature: he's a bully.
I just deleted my YouTube and Podcast interviews with him.
There are other people in the community more worthy of your attention.03:39 AM - 21 Oct 2019
Maybe @ben can give us the pleasure of erasing this man from dev.to there are quite few a posts praising John in several podcasts.
