WoC calls out a cyber bully

Update: 

It was previously stated that Kevin Richards was deceased. However, a contact and friend of his has informed us that Tristan, the man accused of harassing countless people, fabricated this information. We apologize for the confusion in information.

It should stand to no surprise that this article is being made. Today, we are going to address a cyber bully by the name of Tristan Parades. Tristan, according to his own self reflections, is an aspiring talent. He does everything from teach music composition to vocals. However, if you were to check out his Youtube page, “You Can Sing Anything,” you would never guess that. Why? Because for months now, this alleged teacher with a college degree, has tormented, harassed, and even threatened people who actually do teach for a living.

Tristan’s Youtube channel is something I can only define as eerie and borderline stalking. This young “teacher,” decided he did not like how Ken Tamplin was educating people. Okay, that’s fine. However, rather than doing as most adults would do, Tristan decided to smear his name in what can only be regarded as a slanderous campaign. Worst part is, Ken isn’t his first victim…nor was he the last.

In the video pic, posted below, Tristan goes on a rather interesting rant about tongue position and vowels. This young “teacher” decides he is going to, at this point, do some instructing of his own. After a bit of a rant, he decides to discuss how, in the confines of music, tongue positions is important. However, it doesn’t end there. As I reviewed more of his videos, and even his comments, a disturbing image began to unfold.

Another such target of this troll is Kevin Richards. Kevin Richards is very successful voice coach, he is also well known, to my understanding, in the music community. Upon Tristan fabricating his death, he showed just one element toward his disturbing behavior. In the video, “Tribute to Kevin Richards,” a man he has harassed, he is seen simply standing with a trumpet. Shortly after the video begins, he begins to play the song, “TAPS,” if you are unsure as to what this song is, it is the trumpet instrumental that is commonly heard at military funerals.

In a statement, one of his current victims shared with me her fear of this man. She stated that he was clearly unstable. I asked to see records of previous interactions with him, which I received. I will post them below.

I hope you don’t have a criminal background. Because if your behavior continues I will be contacting your local police to be sure they keep watch on you. Your video revealing private videos of me as a teenager as well as revealing my location was incredibly disturbing. I saw you post about how you as a “loving dog owner” shoved your finger inside of your dog. Fucking disgusting.
The erratic behavior stops now. Or I will do everything within my legal power to stop it for you.

Hey I can’t respond to your last message for some reason!
You know. If you were just nicer to me and spoke to me like we were equals instead of threatening to have me arrested and homeless, it would help my ADHD focus a little better. I just don’t respond well to excess stimulation like that, I wind up making silly videos when I get stressed ๐Ÿ˜›.
Thanks brah! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tristan, by his own admission, is on medication for an unknown condition. However, given some of the horrid things stated above, we have a fairly good idea as to why. He accuses his victim of committing sexual acts with her dog while, at the same time, telling her to stop the erratic behavior; the bully believes his victim is the bully? At this point, we can only surmise what’s going on in his head.

According to Tristan, a Robert Lunte filed a false DMCA claim against him. However, I saw the video that he is referring to. In the video, he used portions of Robert’s video as a means to slam and slander him. It is with this in mind, Robert had a legal right to file the DMCA. However, clearly Tristan is not familiar with how DMCA works. In short, you can use it as a parody (The Parody Act,) or as a means to make a commentary. However, you cannot use it to deface the person and their image.

Furthermore, you cannot make profit from Youtube for the types of videos posted above. If you check some of the images, you will notice, on the play bar, a yellow line. This means he is collecting ad revenue. But how can he be collecting ad revenue if he is slandering people? Because, clearly, Youtube is selective on who can and cannot get it. In the past, I have seen videos, and even channels be shutdown, for posting things such as what Tristan posts. Why is it they got shut down and not him? They only shut down a channel, revoke ad revenue, etc. if there are enough reports against it. In short, report him.

Furthermore, what he is doing is illegal. All 50 states have anti-bullying laws; most have anti cyber-bullying laws as well. Although, according to sources, police are aware of the situation, as of the time of this writing, nothing has been done. Meanwhile, his victims must deal with the mental anguish of his constant harassment, threats, and slander. But, because these people are vocal trainers, have credentials, and are successful, it also falls as Defamation of Character as it can hurt their business and income.
