Papa Gut is controversial in the Daniel Larson community. He often acknowledges this, and is a known critic of the community.

The Daniel Larson community claims Papa Gut is uneducated and biased when talking about Daniel, and he was enabling Daniel's actions.

Papa Gut claims that the Daniel Larson community is uneducated about mental illness (Papa Gut's partner works with mentally handicapped people), and that they engage in the stalking and harassment of a man who does not have culpability in his actions.

Of course, this is all offset by the fact that Papa Gut commonly participates in the community, not just in a surface level way, but by actively calling himself a "Larsonian" despite the fact that he is clearly not heavily involved.


Papa Gut is seen as an unreliable source of information in the community for the reasons stated beforehand. Ultimately, while Papa Gut can be used as a source of information, his videos should be taken with a hefty grain of salt for a few reasons.

  • Bias
    • Papa Gut, justifiably or not, has a bias towards Daniel and that should be accounted for.
  • Potential lack of context and outdated content
    • Papa Gut does not make documentaries, and instead makes updates for Daniel. This is a double-edged sword, as while he often strikes the iron while it's hot, his videos can be inaccurate and can be outdated if new information went out.
  • Monetary reasons
    • Papa Gut has a monetary incentive behind his participation in the saga which can definitely affect his, as well as every other Daniel Larson YouTuber's, credibility.

Ultimately, while you can use Papa Gut as a source of information, don't blindly believe him at face value and try to find better sources. There is something to be said for reading between the lines as well- his bias towards Daniel is heavy and can cause him to slightly alter the truth.
