In case anyone missed it on the big 14 pager, Lara admits the emails she received were fakes, and the allegations were false. She has a new YouTube video “apology”. She posts as The Pretty Basic on YT. Too lazy to do link but you can find it on pg 14 on the other thread.
ETA: She also said Tim Holtz did not have her line pulled at SSS.
I have no intention of watching her video, any more than I watched the original one - I have more drama than I need in my life already.
But I appreciate you posting this thread with a clear title so people who haven’t been following the other thread know that TH should not be on anyone’s shitlist, at least, not for Lara-related accusations (I know some people have other reasons to dislike him).

I've met TH a couple of times at shows and I really appreciated the time he gave me. He was in no hurry and genuinely nice so it was really hard to believe that mess. My people intuition remains intact!

Not just false, but outright lies.
Lara made up shit that wasn’t even part of the fake emails.
So we know this about Lara, owner of Ink Road Stamps—all via her own social media—she’s an/a:
-Liar -Thief of cultural appropriation—making $$$ off the back of BLM -copyright infringer -shoplifter of high end shit -bully -drama queen -was in a cult -claims her ex *hired* someone to follow her -psychopathic narcissist
Everyone who swore off of Tim Holtz in the previous thread should go buy some Tim Holtz product.
I have to say this with all due respect....white folks have been doing the most when it comes to being offended and reacting during all of this. I only say that as a Black woman who did ALL of the digging I could and found nothing. Then I sat back puzzled and ate popcorn. As I said in the other thread I think i think on the second day of this hot mess there was NOTHING that made me want to stop buying TH. No evidence but a whole lot of some crazy broad saying things that just didn't seem credible. I hope that all of the butt hurt TH boy-cotters come here and then watch the apology (which I won't. no views from me).
Nope, I won't be buying his stuff because of what I heard him say about women of size in his classes. Granted, this was over 10 years ago, so hopefully he's changed, but once bitten twice shy is my motto in this situation. And I hope that Lara gets the help she needs because she's clearly crying out for help.
