He's pretty self-righteous, though sometimes he makes good points. Other times, like now, he's just acting like an idiot.

In another tweet, he tells people to not jump to conclusions because the "dust hasn't cleared". Nice to see he's following his own advice.

That doesn't make him a whiteknight, however, and I don't think he fits the mold of that kind of slimeball; he seems pretty genuine in how he wants women to be treated online.
Quite frankly, the world is full of sexist people and they're a major problem, but people rounding to defend her shouldn't use sexist abuse to deflect from the issue at hand. Just, you know, let's separate the sexist abuse Lauren is getting (and it's wrong) with genuine questions that need to be asked about what happened over the last 48 hours. And with Rab flat-out saying he was told legal action was threatened, I think this issue is wide open once again.
