Background

Tord Åke Larsson was a Norwegian YouTuber who was most known for his work on the animated series, Eddsworld. He was also a friend of the creator, Edd Gould. Tord was originally planned to be the artist behind the eddsworld comics for the series from 2004, all the way until 2008. He briefly returned in 2010 for one eddsworld episode to say one line. On March 25th, 2012, Edd died from cancer.

Video Contents

5 days later after Edd's death, Tord uploaded a video. In this video, he first responded to Edd's death, paying his respects to him. Then, he explained why he had left Eddsworld. The reason being was that he had been harassed and stalked by fans of the series, causing him to quit and go into hiding.

Disappearance

Soon, the video was lost due to Tord deleting his account, in order to hide from fans again. The YouTube link has been archived on web.archive.org, but the video itself has been lost. The only piece of footage that is known to have survived is from the tribute video “Your Eulogy”

Aftermath

After the tribute video was made, shown at Edd's funeral and uploaded to youtube, Tom Ridgewell (voice of Tom in the series) had uploaded a video explaining eddsworld related stuff. In it, he also had mentioned Tord, stating that Tord leaving opened a "Pandora's box" of crazed fans that relentlessly pestered him to the point that he went to the extent of not using his real name on the internet. On the 26th August 2014, a possible fan of Tord asked if Matthew Hargreaves was still in contact with Tord. Matthew responded with "I would like to, but it's been a long time" The last time Tord had been mentioned Eddsworld-wise was in the credits for "The End" part 2.

>"He had been harassed and stalked by fans of the series, causing him to quit and go into hiding." Why do people do this shit? Why is there so many people, not just in the eddsworld community, but on the internet as a whole that have no ability to consider the plight of other people, or even frigging think for themselves in any way, shape or form? Instead they look at content creators either like fucking machines whose only purpose in existing is to entertain them, or like gods who can do no wrong ,& can never possibly just be joking, so they harass people that either have differing opinions from them or people they made a joke about once.

It's fucking disgraceful, but what I've said here is most likely just common sense to anyone else who reads this random post on the internet, regardless I make this post out of sheer hope to god that this post could somehow, in some way, help enlighten someone, anyone out there...
