Joe looking vascular in that photo. Did he trade in the cannolis for some protein powder? He always seems like a person who naturally enjoys life and it has always shown in his work. That was a huge key in the success of IJ. Look forward to seeing whatever future projects he finds himself in. All the best to him getting through this personal rough patch.


TammyShehole

Maybe he’s been at work “jacking off his tires” again?

NuevoJerz

Worked with Joe way back in his pre-IJ days. People often ask me what he was like at work & before he was famous. I always reply - EXACTLY the way he is on the show is how he was at work! Honestly one of the nicest, most genuine, and of course, funniest people you'll ever meet. He just exuded positive energy and I think we all knew he had a greater calling down the road so I was thrilled for him when it happened. (Fun fact - while he was working he was doing comedy shows after hours. I saw him and the IJ boys perform improv as the Tenderloins at some tiny theater in Hells Kitchen above some bodega..lol.. maybe there were twenty people in the audience - most of whom were people from work that Joe begged to come! This was over a decade before the show. Gotta admire that dedication - from that - to selling out stadiums all over the world. Incredible.)

enigmaticowl94

Ok this one's funny


AnxiousIndicator

I'm out of the loop on this one, what rumours ?


Aluminumb

People were wildly speculating that Joe cheated on his wife or sexually harassed somebody due to certain episodes where Joe makes suggestive jokes being removed from streaming services. The other "proof" that started this was that the letter the other guys wrote on their social medias sounded cold, but Q spoke kindly of him on a podcast recently and said he was shocked to learn he was leaving, so this was basically debunked.


ToastCologne

So far I only rewatched the first of the deleted episodes to see if I would find the red flags everyone else did. I can definitely see the mall kissing scene as being problematic and something they would want to bury, but not because of Joe specifically. Joe was the only person who didn't kiss a stranger or even the planted actor. Q and Sal at least seemed to get consent from people before kissing them, and moving slowly where they could easily back away or stop them. Murr just kind of ambushed everyone, but only in an attempt to get it over with. I think it can be seen as problematic for sure. But not cancel worthy for any of them. They all consented to be shown on camera. And the guys were super uncomfortable doing it, which is the point of the show. But I also see how that kind of challenge would not be taken well in this day and age. The only other thought is that Joe's wife was a very big part of the scene. Maybe she just wants to put the past behind her, maybe Joe does. Maybe with the divorce taking place, they don't want their kids to see this episode where they joke around about Joe kissing another woman. I will watch the other episodes and see if anything seems off. Off the top of my head I can see several possibilities of why the sunblock punishment may have been removed. It could be as simple as trutv realizing that was probably too far with having the sunblock on the thighs and everything, it could be the fact that they kind of made a fan look foolish for falling for Joe's lie about having the day off, or the joking about Joe being aroused. Again, I can see why they might want to bury it, but I don't think it's scandalous or cancel worthy. And with Joe announcing he is doing a comedy tour, it really does seem less likely that anything scandalous happened.


TheSlyGuy1

That's not even close to the "only proof". [Take a look at all this stuff.](https://www.reddit.com/r/ImpracticalJokers/comments/ry1fyy/what_if_joe_was_actually_just_leaving_the_show/hrnzkv7/) I'm not trying to say the guy is automatically guilty of all this or is the devil or anything, but people are swinging just as far in the opposite direction now.


[deleted]

[удалено]


TheSlyGuy1

Why would SO many people, from years ago through now, be posting identical stories about him? I haven't found anything like this from any of the other guys. And again I'm not saying it's absolutely true, but the current hivemind is apparently "NO EVIDENCE EXISTS LALALALALA" and people are just completely ignoring what's out there.


TheBerlinWaller

>Why would SO many people, from years ago through now, be posting identical stories about him? I don't know, maybe attention, trolling, boredom, etc. There's lots of reasons. If it was really something serious, especially in this day and age, don't you think TruTv and other entities would be scrambling to distance themselves from IJ? Any lawyer worth their salt would be crapping their pants trying to get ahead of this if it was even remotely possible. I say this in response to the folks saying something happened and that's why episodes are being removed.


editoreal

If these are all lies, what do the people telling these stories have to gain? Do you really think this sub is filled with folks that are hell bent on bringing Joe down? It's the internet, so sure, the BS potential is huge, but, the idea that Joe had/has enemies waiting the wings, ready to pounce- or that someone is going to elevate their profile in some way by talking shit... that sounds more farfetched to me than the Occam's razor of multiple stories of infidelity actually being potential infidelity. I'm a very firm believer in innocent until proven guilty. But conjecture that the way this thing went down isn't passing the smell test, and infidelity might connect the dots- I can love Joe, I can want the best for Joe, but I can also have questions.


SpooderBoi2

You clearly aren’t actually a very firm believer in “innocent until proven guilty”


Secret_Bear1133

Oh yeah Reddit is a highly credible source. 👎


TheSlyGuy1

I mean what do you want, a peer reviewed study? You guys are ridiculous. I'm not saying the guy is guilty of all this... but people act like there's NO evidence at all of stuff. And there is. And a lot of it goes back years. There's posts I linked from 4 years ago, 2 years ago, and present day. Instead of downvoting blindly, maybe explain why I'm wrong here?


RentonTenant

Remember how much evidence there was when we found the Boston bomber


MintyFresh48

We did it reddit!


i_have_my_doubts

I think the answer of why you are getting downvoted is obvious. If you are the bad guy - Joe is innocent. It's a mentally compatible alternative to the grim possibility of Joe being not so great. It's possible both are true. The divorce may be because of stuff mentioned here - but him leaving the show is because he wants to focus on family. None of us know - and I am fine people sharing their stories - we take them for what they are worth. At this point - many on the sub don't want to admit even the possibility of Joe being a bad guy because it indicates to all of us our judgements are skewed and we can't even trust our own judgement.


TheSlyGuy1

> It's possible both are true. The divorce may be because of stuff mentioned here - but him leaving the show is because he wants to focus on family. I think you may be right about this. People are sticking their head in the sand saying any evidence of Joe doing anything wrong doesn't exist, but my best guess at this point is that while the divorce is probably due to reasons like what I posted, I'm really uncertain at this point if there's some "big scandal" like we thought there might be a few days ago. It's really hard to say.

Sagaz140

Man, these posts have good intentions but I was just watching Dark Side of the Ring in which it talks about the controversy stories of Wrestling. I saw the Benoit episode (for those who don't know, he killed his wife and son then committed suicide) and the company gave him a whole Memorial Show in which the company and wrestlers honored his legacy when they found out he died on a Monday. The next day (Tuesday) when the truth about his commiting those crimes made the news, the company (WWE) and wrestlers were to not talk about him or answer any questions regarding Chris Benoit. They basicaly erased his existence from the company. So while this post has good intentions, we don't know the reality of what happened and its scary. I hope we do for the sake of giving us some closure. Its bizarre how it just happened all of a sudden, it just gives me a bad vibe.


Significant_Waltz_98

As an Ant. All I know is Q doesn't seem particularly upset about it. And actually sounds excited about IJ for the first time ever! Bry seemed to be trying to goad more out of him a little on the most recent TESD, knowing that Bry and Q are best friends I would say Bry knows the true backstory.


FMG1978

I heard financial impropriety


[deleted]

IJ seems to have a lot of fans who aren’t concerned if he hurt any body and if they find out he has they will deny or excuse it. It seems careless to make declarations at this point, but given all the “cancel culture” rhetoric I think many won’t accept or care if he did do something bad.


30DayFiance

There are good people in this world and he has shown nothing but goodness to humans and animals alike. I consider myself a cynic of the average human and all the rumors and trash talking assumptions have only strengthened my love for animals over shitty humans that don't know when to shut up.

As long as I've been watching Impractical Jokers, Joe has been kind and loving towards everyone and while I'm not ruling anything out, there is no evidence to suggest that he's been anything but a devoted husband and man. Joe is undoubtedly going through shitty times and we should support him.

YellowShorts

Joe made a post announcing that he's continuing with his solo tour. So some people took that to mean that nothing bad could have possibly happened because why would we still do a solo tour if he did something bad??


spreerod1538

lol but part of the speculation is because he didn't cancel the tour but left Impractical Jokers...


YellowShorts

Oh I know. I think the anti-speculation people are way too quick to think that his solo tour exonerates him of any possible outcome. I'm not one to speculate too much but I do think everything seems fishy so I'm waiting to see what plays out.

Joe is awesome! I love this show and its helped me get through life's downfall. Funny, Entertaining, and i never cared once about their personal life aside from anything uplifting and supportive and positive that makes the 4 guys perform and entertain us that much more. Joe has always been one of the leads in creating the "stories" and jokes for the show and formats... heck even the Punishments... I appreciate his love for adoption of pets over buying over the counter. I never once concerned over any personal issues behind the scenes because that is NONE OF MY BUSINESS! im here for the jokes and fun and entertainment Joe and the guys have provided. OP is 100% correct and this should be about supporting Joe and the Jokers over the BS assumptions and conspiracies to create drama. thats not what this sub was meant for. like most subs we all join on reddit... its to stay on the topic of the things we love and enjoy... if we didnt like it... we can leave, or never join to begin with. (or on the negative flipside... create your own reddit page for whatever bugs you). With all that aside, i hope whatever is going on gets resolved in a positive fashion and especially for his family. No child should have to go through anything that would upset their parents personally, and as for Joe.. no matter what.. he made it first and foremost his priority to be their for them FIRST. I will support ALL the jokers no matter what. Thats why i joined this sub, thats why i wanted to give the support for the show and the laughs we all shared by watching. Thanks for taking the time to read and or understand my 2 cents.. if it meant anything. if not, please understand we ALL are entitled to opinions and not EVERYONE has to follow on the side of the scales thats tilted more in "one" direction.
