Aidan Kearney of Turtleboy Sports threatening defamation suit for exposing him

Aidan Kearney of Turtleboy Sports threatening defamation suit for exposing him

Where do we begin? My original plan for this article was slightly different when I woke up this morning, but then I received a picture text in the afternoon that has altered how this article will eventually unfold. So on top of the original plan for this article which is showing Aidan Kearney’s actual involvement with Turtleboy Sports, I’ll also be filling you in on a little something that has been going on behind the scenes of this story. First lets get to that picture text I received, here take a look…

You see Aidan Kearney is threatening a defamation suit against myself and Mike Guittar. Why Mike is being involved in this is anyone’s guess but the threat appears to be very real. Naturally this has caused quite the mental struggle for me, knowing that everything I’ve ever written about Aidan Kearney is 100% factual to my knowledge, and seeing that my friend who had nothing to do with any of it is being dragged into this.

I know that everything I have written about Aidan Kearney was factual to my knowledge and backed with supporting evidence to make such claims, I know I have the right as an investigative journalist to report any story that I believe to be true and is also concerning to the public. I know that if someones life is ruined because their own actions are reported it does not give them a right to blame the person reporting the story, or their friends for that matter.

So knowing that I never attempted to deceive anyone or even try to stretch the truth at any point in my coverage on this, it goes against everything I stand for to let this threat intimidate me into taking down the information I worked so hard on over the past year. I will not allow that to happen just so he can say “look, it never happened genius, why do you think they took down all the articles about me?”. I know deep in my heart that I am doing the right thing in this world, and knowing that because he resigned after my story broke and he still has a teachers license that he can still put to use if he can just make my reports go away, well it leaves a pretty sick feeling in my stomach even considering it.

The thing is though, that part about him losing his job and ruining his life? From what we’ve been told his life is better than ever. Take for instance when he was interviewed by a local Worcester reporter in this article, it says…

“Mr. Kearney, not surprisingly, framed his departure differently. He “quit,” he said, not because of the investigation, but because he didn’t want to be fingerprinted (Massachusetts teachers are mandated to do so now), and because he had become disillusioned as a teacher.”

It should be no surprise that 3 months after making that statement he began filing the defamation suit against me. A month after he filed for that defamation suit he sent me this tweet through his TBS Twitter handle…

Now I know what some of you are saying… “sure we all know that’s really Aidan’s Twitter account but how can you possibly back that claim up??”  Excellent question!!!! One might say you deserve a gold star for asking it. Its been damn near impossible to tie Aidan Kearney to the Turtleboy Sports Twitter account (with the exception that all older tweets from that account trace back to @aidanfromworc)  but if you do enough digging you can find exactly what you are looking for. Back in April of last year before his whole “Bills fans are vile creatures” article blew up in his face he was very active with the handle and didn’t feel the need to be completely anonymous with it. The whole “we are all turtleboy” line isn’t exactly going to get you out of this one…

You see I believe Turtleboy Sports was created because he wanted to go in a much darker and nasty direction with his blogging and couldn’t do that without people creating a stir over the fact that he was a high school teacher. Even though he had made that transition 3 months prior to this tweet it seems he hadn’t yet felt any real pressure to completely hide his identity. Did he still have hope for resurrecting aidanfromworcester.com? I don’t know, but that thought is as foolish as thinking you can simply delete years worth of being an active vocal sports fan on the internet because all of a sudden you need to hide your identity.

Aidan Kearney’s story is that he sold his blog aidanfromworcester.com (a free wordpress blog) to Turtleboy Sports for $1 because he couldn’t take the ‘hot takes’ anymore, that’s seriously the story, I wish I could tell you something that makes way more sense but this is all I got…

There are few interesting things about this proof of transaction, you’ll notice the date of said transaction is September of 2013 yet Aidan Kearney is using the twitter handle as his own 7 months later in the last picture I shared, which is 2 months after the above tweet.

After the incident in Buffalo happened and I wrote my article exposing him as a high school teacher he took the site down, scrubbed the internet clean of anything that could tie him to the site, resigned from Shepard Hill and started the site back up with this being the opening paragraph from the first article back…

I mean seriously give the guy effort for trying but none of it makes any sense. If you really want to know if Aidan Kearney is in fact Turtleboy, well then all you have to do is listen to him, literally. Turtleboy likes to be on the air, and Turtleboy has a very unique voice. He currently does a ‘turtleboy tuesday’ podcast on 100 FM the Pike, so his voice is all over that whole thing. Now if you want to compare that voice to Aidan Kearney then there are several ways you can go about doing that, In particular Aidan Kearney loved to call a local Boston sports show called Felger and Mazz.  If you go to the 50:40 mark of hour 3 on this podcast  you will hear Aidan Kearney calling in as “Aidan from Worcester” on February 28th of 2014 as he routinely did at the time. However, almost 3 months earlier in early December of 2013 we find he was already trying out his masked identity to very little success. In this call he tries calling into Felger and Mazz under the name “turtleboy” in hour 4 at the 26:00 minute mark and is immediately outed by the radio host.

I’m not even going to pretend that I know which one said it, but either Felger or Mazz tells them to cut off the call and says “Thats Aidan from Worcester…. why is he calling himself turtleboy now?” Which is a great question, probably so he can be an asshole and not let it affect his teaching job. Better luck next time, right?

But if you really want the good stuff all you have to do is go to Aidan Kearney’s youtube page, which is the same youtube page used for the videos in Turtleboy Sports articles. This even shocked me and I only discovered it because I decided to dig up as much information as I could about anybody known to be involved with TBS. With that said, just because I haven’t written an article about you, don’t think for a second that I don’t have a loaded folder on you if you have been in any way involved with turtleboy sports. Aidan made this personal with the lawsuit threat and I intend to drag everyone involved in this down with me.

On to more pressing matters though, Aidan Kearney is an idiot. Once I realized I should watch all of his youtube video’s I quickly realized I was dealing with a special kind of idiot. Now I almost don’t even want to mention this because I know Aidan is just going to delete these video’s and that is going to ruin the experience you as the reader will have in better understanding what is happening here. With that said, I have saved these videos and can provide them to anybody that is interested in them, in particular lawyers, I would love to send all of the videos I have saved from Aidan Kearney’s youtube page to lawyers. If these videos are deleted as I expect them to be, then I will try to throw together and upload a compilation of them for educational purposes if you give me a week or so.

It appears that Aidan Kearney has been uploading youtube video’s on this page since January of 2013, In April of 2013 he recorded this interview with someone at the Boston Marathon…

Now just in case you don’t recognize that voice, back in April of 2013  Aidan Kearney wanted everyone to know it was him…

He also uploaded this same video again just over a month ago, which I’m not sure why because the original one is still on his page, its almost like he’s screaming “It’s me guy’s!!!! How much more obvious can I get?!!”. Well, you want obvious? How about another video with his voice featuring his friend (who was at the Buffalo game with him last year) saying hello to him at a Baseball game?

I understand this may not seem like much to some of you but I assure you it is very crucial information to what is going on here. Because we didn’t even get to the best part yet. Clarence Woods Emerson is a name some of you know rather well, in fact most people that know the name are 99% convinced that it is Aidan Kearney. Clarence Woods Emerson is a piece of garbage like you’ve never seen, he is the guy that is able to communicate with others on facebook as the leader of turtleboy sports without having to actually identify himself. If you want just an idea of what kind of person Clarence Woods Emerson is then allow me to share with you part of a conversation that was sent to me from the woman who initially tipped me off that Aidan Kearney was behind turtleboy sports…

That pretty much in nutshell describes Clarence Woods Emerson in the the multi-page conversation that was sent to me. It actually gets worse than that but for time’s sake we must move on. You want to know who Clarence really is? Of course you do! Why the hell are we even here? Well then, lets go straight to Aidan Kearney’s youtube page, where else are we going to find the answer to such pressing questions? At the 2:40 mark of this video you will see James Latino stop himself from calling the interviewer (with Aidan Kearney’s voice) “turtleboy” and instead call him “Clarence”…

Then in the next video uploaded by Aidan Kearney’s youtube account James Latino cant help but call Aidan “Clarence” over and over again…

This was apparently all fun and games before Aidan Kearney decided to sexually harass Buffalo Bills fans and then use that in an attempt to shame them online. Now Aidan wants to play the victim, and he wants to discredit my word and hard work that I’ve put into exposing the truth to the good people that deserve to know whats really going on in this sick world? Well you might as well forward this article to your lawyer Aidan Kearney as my official response to your offer of dropping the suit if I remove everything I’ve written about you. I stand by every single word I have ever published about you and if you think this is bad you should see what I’m holding back in case this actually goes to court. Sure you cant act like a complete piece of shit in this world and then blame others when they talk about what you did, but you and you alone are responsible for your own actions. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I didn’t make you do anything that you did, you chose to do that yourself, take some god damn responsibility for your own actions like a god damn man. You are going to have to explain your actions to your child one day, and you can blame me for that all you want, but YOU did it, not me. This isn’t the late 1990’s, this is 2015 and technology has far surpassed your stupidity.
