    the fact that a disney star is publicly advocating for sexual assault survivors by sharing his experience as a male CSA survivor is so fucking monumental, and yet its being overshadowed by breakup discourse. all they have to say to him is “stop whining” and “you’re digging up old drama” and sometimes the fun “you cant be raped, you’re a man.” even now, nobody with influence wants to support him. it’s so fucking bizarre, i genuinely don’t get it. how does moving on quickly from a relationship make you so taboo?

      Yes the fact he and Olivia never said anything about a relationship she just hinted a relationship with someone but NEVER said Joshua and majority of internet jumped to conclusions besides maybe like 20 percent or something.. he received more hate than positive that's for sure and it honestly some of it is Olivias fault..
      she coulda told her fans he was not the guy but chose not to answer. It just looks sus on her part that she doesn't at least say if it's true or not or whatever when he was recievining the hate. Especially after him saying that the hate and unesecarry backlash caused him pain so much to the point where he coulda passed away had he not went to the Dr.. so it's like... I like Olivia it's just you could clear some things up. The same ppl who are assuming it was Joshua prbly are going hard at him cuz their rlly assuming Joshua who was 18 or over at the time was really dating Olivia when she wasn't of age? It's just weird. The same ppl telling him that he's digging up old drama don't tell Olivia Rodrigo that she was digging up old drama by writing drivers license. Joshua shared a real experience and how toxic some ppl can be that almost ended his life... It seems dramatic but not everyone can handle that much stress/allegations..
      About nobody with a big influence wanting to work with him or support him or whatever is just wrong. And only working with Olivia as if she's the only one from the show with talent or as if she's totally innocent all the way like a saint. Some parts she was wrong cuz she coulda cleared it up and told her fans to stop har**sing Joshua and Sabrina carpenter... ATP both Joshua and olivia should clear things up. I do have a feeling that if anything did happen..Joshua knew the age difference was wrong and made it clear he didn't want to date her maybe she thought he liked her maybe he was being nice (some ppl who tend to be nice some ppl get mixed signals or take advantage of them thinking it's that the nice person likes them alot or is leading them on when sometimes that's not even the case) but yk I think Joshua obviously didn't do anything cuz of the age difference and I do believe if anything happened I don't think he would still be on a kids/teens show dedicated to HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL a kids/teens franchise don't think Disney would let him stay on the show a big part of the reason why I think nothing happened and if anything even small almost happened I have a feeling he made it clear in case Olivia got mixed signals that he saw her as just a friend especially cuz of the age difference and didn't see her in that way..
      usually Disney fires ppl who do B's especially stuff not legal look at what Disney did to Andi Mack they fired the granddad after his charges with minors.. also some ppl said that Olivia crying in their breakup scene during season 2 was real tears but that's if anything happened. I don't think they had a legit relationship especially just do to legally it really isn't allowed. Maybe if she was 18 or 19 maybe they would have dated if anything during filming but she was a whole minor...
      P.S. never got the hate for Sabrina is it cuz Olivia mentioned the "blonde girl" and they assumed Sabrina carpenter of all ppl.. I guess cuz Sabrina and Joshua worked on a song or sum I think their was speculation him and Sabrina dated it was just a mess and still is but I don't get the hate cuz wouldn't the intenrnet rather him date someone who's his age/around his age rather than someone who's a minor being olivia? but they go at sabrina... make it make sense..I'd rather him date someone his own age sabrina rather than someone who was a minor at the time of filming when this relationship allegedly took place... Cuz ppl keep pitting ppl against each other this is just Hight school B's and since their all equally adults by now should talk about it as adults to clear the air.

      As someone who is also male SA victim I am so proud of him for speaking out. So mamy people believe men can't be raped or that they can prevent being raped, which is a lie. I hope more men/boys will be more willing to open up after this. It pisses me off that stuff like this is getting ignored because of the drama. None of it was his fault and yet he's been dragged to hell and back. I don't get why people are still hating him. I love him so much! He's such a sweet soul.

    Joshua is honestly so inspirational and he really doesn’t deserve all the things he has gone through! After listening to this I could go on a rant about why he doesn’t deserve the hate to anyone who disagrees! He is so strong and I can’t believe he has gone through so much! I mean he was dying in hospital with a 30% chance of survival, he was abused as a kid, ppl would play the songs about him when he went into coffee shops over and over , was groomed, abused at 5! and he is still really young and he has gone through so much and deserves the world! My respect for him is sky rocketing and he is one of the strongest people emotionally that I’ve seen.

    'When people have shitty friends, they settle because they don't have any other friends. And they think, well I can't abandon these friends 'cause I'll be alone. You're better off alone than with shitty friends' - Joshua Bassett. Amen to that indeed! As someone who had 2 shitty friends throughout high school, I wish I had the courage at the time to speak up for myself and leave that friendship. I've never in my life felt as alone as I did throughout high school. I had friends but they didn't care about me or didn't include me in any way. Joshua, I seriously wanna thank you for saying this. It means more than you can ever know!

      As someone who is actively in that situation, I think the more difficult part is rewiring your mentality from that first statement and actively choosing to leave them. I think it takes a lot of strength and courage to accept that, but thats so difficult to do when your self image is already so low from a toxic situation. It's effectively an endless loop that a lot of people struggle to break.

      I went through the same thing ( I am still in high school) and leaving that friend group was freeing. I honestly felt more lonely standing there with them ignoring me than I do now that I can be myself, even if I'm eating alone at lunch. These choices can really change people's lives. I'm glad Joshua brought this up.

      @Keisha Blake • But do we really want young girls looking up to an person in power - because fame _is_ a form of power and she has accumulated _a lot_ of it - who wouldn't even do the _bare minimum_ of tweeting out to their fans to "not send death threats" when they could have done so _easily_ in less than a minute? The quote "with great power comes great responsibility" isn't just a fun little saying - it's a very important and _very easily_ comprehensible lesson AND fact. It doesn't matter that "well artists don't HAVE to police their fans" because well DUH, no public figure HAS to 'police' their followers in a _legal_ sense, but that doesn't mean they're a good person in a _moral_ sense for choosing to not influence their fans in a good - or at the _very least_, *non-harmful* - direction.
      And when it comes to literal *death threats*: ANY SEVENTEEN-YEAR-OLD [*because no, we are not talking about toddlers here, but soon-to-be-or-already-college-age people] with a _basic concept_ of morality and empathy, would be able to tell you that if you had THOUSANDS of people so deeply invested in YOUR influence who were sending death threats to someone on YOUR behalf, you should at _the very least_ send out a simple sentence to those INTENSELY UNDER YOUR INFLUENCE followers saying "hey, true fans of mine wouldn't send death threats to people" - DONE. You don't even need to be a 'superhero' or believe you would INSTANTLY halt aaaaall the hate - you just have to be a decent person willing to try. _Especially_ when this immense hatred and death-threat-slinging happens over MONTHS where there is _ample_ time to think things over and would not near-qualify as "being in the heat of the moment".

      If artists had to say not to send death threats to people after every song or performance then it would be all they ever do. It’s common sense that people shouldn’t send anyone death threats over a song so why is it on the artist to state and restate shit that is common sense? Artists have every right to express their feelings without having to apologize for them. It’s not Olivia’s fault that he’s gotten hate. People online get hate for a lot less. Look how often Taylor Swift has flamed men in her music and no one is attacking her. Most female artists that write songs pull from shitty experiences with men. It happens. Artists cannot control was other people spend their time commenting on socials. She’s not asking anyone to hate anyone she’s simply expressing how it hurt her and the songs were therapy for her and the situation is so god damn relatable for people so lets not hate on an innocent girl who was already hurt to begin with just because random people go to extremes on their own to send hate to Joshua. So no artists don’t need to be held accountable for expressing their pain so others can feel less alone. Women like Olivia and Taylor help girls who are going through it and they sit on breakup playlists because whether you’re making music or listening to it it’s all healing. No one needs to apologize for feeling how they feel or apologize for others actions. People online should know better and if they don’t then it’s their own fault.

      I agree, although I do think that her PR team limited her very harshly with what she could and couldn’t post. Take may 2021 vs july 2022 for example. Hsmtmts season 2 came out right around sour did and she didn’t post about it. Season 3 premiere she did. So although i agree with you its possible that her pr team advised her against it.

      @Jaxo they literally say “ONE OF” and “THEYVE SEEN” they havent seen every person in the world and they didnt say he was the strongest out there. You speak of why they “cant just say” this or say that but why cant YOU just see their opinion or statement and stop trying to invalidate it with outside information just for the sake of arguing? Stop invalidating people’s opinions or struggles simply because others have struggles or because of the artist in the interview. money and success doesnt equal happiness and it doesnt invalide their struggles nor their strength. Dont compare struggles. Just something for you to think about.

    I’m not sure if anyone will see this comment but I just had to put these thoughts somewhere. Honestly, I’m so proud of Josh. He’s so strong. Strong for being open about his feelings and strong for speaking out. This podcast made me feel so much. As a Josh supporter for maybe 2 years now it’s- you don’t even realize how much he went through before he became this “Big” “Well known” person and this last year has really been hell for him. I hate, I am disgusted by the way countless of people treated him and still treat him. They degrade him constantly say after day and I hate that. Saying things like “He should have died” or “He deserves that.” Like how horrible of a person do you have to be to say such vile things about someone who quite frankly you don’t even know!!?? How?! I started to tear up hearing him start opening about the SA and Abuse he went through. How is it that humans can treat other humans so poorly and with such cruelty? I can’t comprehend that. It’s disgusting. Josh would hate fans spreading rude messages on behalf and that shows just how grown up he’s become. So proud, I’m just so proud of him. You’ve got it Josh, we’re still here for you❤️

    For years my mind has been pushing back the fact that when I was about four years old I was sexually abused. They day this interview came out I watched it at 3 in the morning and it completely changed my life. Hearing Joshua talk about his experience made me realize what had happened to me and ever since then i have been healing a part of me that was locked in the deepest part of my brain. It feels weird saying that a video has changed my life but I genuinely believe that this video has. I am so moved by how emotionally intelligent Joshua is and I am working to achieve that level of intelligence and vulnerability.

I've been struggling with how negative I've been and I just want to be positive and his words helped me understand that I've just been putting out so much negativity through my words- it's crazy.

    The fact that this man went through EVERYTHING bad; bullied, exploitation, grew up in toxic enviroment, sexually abused at very young age, mentally abused too.. He was at the hospital with 30% chance of survival, but he'd still get the most tremendous amount of hate, because of a SONG -
    People perverted the reality, because they were too obsessed to face him with humilty - & even tho he was going through all of this, he'd still care more about others rather than himself! He's so well eloquent, mature for his age..his responses and bravery tells everything. Seriously, my faith in this generation slowly is getting doomed bcs of the way he's been treated, but at the same time I choose to keep up & look up more to such inspiration people like him, just to remind my self that maybe there's still a chance for this world to be a better place because of people like him. ♡

    The amount of hate he got for moving on from a relationship was awful. He didn’t deserve it and he didn’t especially didn’t deserve to be told by the internet that he couldn’t be SA’d because he is a white man and that he lying about it for attention. Joshua really seems like a great person that was just dog piled by bandwagon hate. Props to him for continuing to pursue his passions. Hopefully people will realize how fucked up it was to hate on him and appreciate him for his talents.

    He doesn’t deserve any of this hate he is spreading positive vibes around the world and being who he wants to be. No one should be telling him what he has to do and stuff like that it is up to him it is his life and his feelings. He is an amazing human being and I don’t care what anyone says that’s what I think and will continue thinking. He was so right when he was saying when men get sexually assaulted it is no different to when women do. We should be treated equally just cause there men doesn’t mean anything. When he was talking about having rubbish friends in high school I was like that is literally what I went through I thought I had no friends and I have around 3 friends all together and I’m just hoping they stay, but he is not alone. Love you josh forever and always ❤️‍🔥🌈

    Seeing him tear up at the coffee shop mention was disheartening. I mean, it's not even the worst thing that has happened to him this year. One might think, "oh, one coffee shop is being shady, so what." but even such a little thing can obviously do a lot of harm.

    “Yes there was lots of betrayal, which is ironic” 💀💀😂😂😂
    In all honesty, he is such a pure soul. To always see the good in people after the year he’s had, to forgive rather than seek revenge, shows how truly mature he is in such a superficial, self serving industry. To say no to the drama, when he could have defended his image/profited really shows his true character. I like both artists but really admire his maturity. Those comments saying terrible things about him clearly do not know him one bit/haven’t watched a single interview with him because you cannot deny how genuinely good this person is.

      @Riley Smith it's not sending hate its criticizing her. She should've and could've said something to her fans but she decided to remain quiet. I don't respect that and I'll call her out for it. Sending hate is sending two people death threats for almost 2 years because of a album. Until she openly apologizes for not saying anything while her fans partook in a witch hunt, i am not going to support her or what she stands for. All it took was one post that was like "Don't send hate on my behalf". The other two people who were getting sent hate did it, why couldn't she? And if u support a artist who is okay with ppl sending hate and staying quiet then ur also a problem. She stayed quiet as people got attacked on her behalf. She knew what was going on, she even laughed at a skit of it on Instagram story. Joshua was spit on and almost died (33% survival odds) during the whole incident, Sabrina was constantly called names and ridiculed while going through her father infidelity. So yeah I'm going to call Olivia out on her enabling. She really shouldn't have a platform with this behavior.
      Edit: also im not a Josh fan but even if I was just because he mightve forgave her doesn't mean his fans have to. I got attacked just for being a Carpenter. It wasn't just the two getting death threats, their fans were also being attacked. So it's up to the individual fans to also decide to forgive her and I won't until she publicly apologizes.

    I always thought people listen or supported artists because they shared something in common with them, not to focus completely on the 'other person' that the song is about or the 'drama' in general. I personally love Joshua and his music because he and I have shared similar experiences, only difference is that he has the courage and talent to speak about it. I can't express how thankful and proud I am of him for talking about his experiences. We need more people like Joshua in all our lives.

I kept it inside myself for years. YEARS. and it literally destroyed my life. i didnt even know anything bad happened until i realized it. when i told my mom for the first time, it genuinely felt as if someone was pushing down on me really hard and finally let go. i felt physically lighter than i did before in a matter of 5 seconds.

      Very proud of you for sharing your story! I relate as well, my story is quite similar to yours. From what I remember, it was a one time thing. And, because I was so young, I completely blocked it from my memory. Despite not remembering, it has impacted my whole entire life. I have struggled with self esteem issues, because the assault made me perceive my body as disgusting. I have struggled to maintain healthy relationships, because I had trouble differentiating between “romantic” and platonic relationships and could not believe someone would want to be around me simply to be around me rather than yk abuse me. It wasn’t until this year actually after a severe trauma that I began to remember some pieces of the assault. I’ve only, thus far, been able to open up about my assault with my therapist but I definitely agree with the sentiment. So long as it’s somebody you trust, talking about it is definitely healing. I cannot comprehend the added challenges that must come with being a male victim. I have seen how immensely stigmatized it is within media, but as a female I cannot say I know exactly what you’re going through. I just would like to heavily emphasize YOU have immense strength and courage!! And again I’m so proud of you for sharing your story. I hear you, and I hope you continue to heal.

We support you and see how you have continuously preached about positivity and mindfulness. You have been nothing but supportive to people around you, even people who have hurt you. You are an impressive young man and did not deserve the hurtful projections people threw at you. I hope things only continue to improve for you, you are worthy of all the joy and success coming to you and you are an inspiration.

    Josh is amazing and so strong for opening up like this. This couldn’t have been easy. As someone who’s had similar experiences, I so understand. He’s helped me so much and I know he’s going to help a thousand more. I love him. Always remember you’re not alone everyone❤️

    He is so well-spoken and mature for his age. I can't believe some people hated on him so much that he had to go through some of the toughest things in life. People should start taking him seriously as an Artist, he has so many good songs and he's such a nice person. I hope he's doing better now. 🙏🏻🥺

    I knew nothing of Joshua before this interview, but some of the harsh life lessons that he has learned (ex: not letting people who don't care about you control your story/life) just finally came clear to me in the past year or so. I'm 28. I can't believe that he's only 21; his maturity and clarity are incredible. Fantastic interview. I wish nothing but the best for both.

    Everything he said from 35:45 to 36:50 can be made into a song ..... a very realistic heartbreaking song..... the way he got emotional and on the verge of tears...
    i just think it could be a great song is cuz the words he used were very song-y
    And it's true...why would you do that to someone you love/loved ... a simple gesture to show that the hate wasn't her intention would've been great , even if she couldn't stop what's happening... she could've done something just to show she cared about him as a human being..

    Josh talking about his relationships and friendships resonates so much with me in this point in time because I’m going through the exact same thing! He seems like such an honest, loving, and overall great person! I hope he’s still staying strong in his healing process! I’m starting mine now and have only myself to look after and my energy to protect🙏🏼

    Hearing Joshua talk about his hospital experience... the power of our mind... the law of attraction and the way we speak about things really hit me in the gut because this was all along the lines of what I am experiencing myself. There's something interesting about being a human being and experiencing something terrible- we think it's only us that thinks a certain way about a load of things. But everything he has said in this video is exactly how I feel and I am surprised by that. I never thought I would hear someone else say exactly what I was thinking. I am grateful to have listened to this and can't believe he put it into words. You're really smart Joshua and I am so sorry for what you have been through. I have been through that feeling of betrayal, anxiety, health that just scares you shitless and makes you go for a whirlwind. Thank you for this. You don't know how much hope you gave me.

    Joshua is so strong! I feel so bad for him that he got so much hate, and as an Olivia Rodrigo fan, we don't claim those toxic people who hated on Josh, Sabrina, etc. They're not true fans. the real fans would be more respectful than that

    OMG Zach I could barely hold myself together watching this episode. The openness and honesty from Joshua and your compassion combined had me in tears so many times. I was glued to my screen for an hour and a half, and love you even more now as an interviewer. The safe space that you offer to your guests so beautiful and heart warming. I don't think either Joshua or yourself knew that this interview would take the turns that it did. And I could feel as the viewer that both of you came away so proud of one another. GREAT INTERVIEW. And what an amazing young fellow Joshua is. thank you from the bottom of my heart for this.

    The way I see it is both Olivia and josh have different perspectives of their relationship, they’ve both done things wrong and both have suffered but at the end of the day they seem like great people who were in a toxic young relationship and made mistakes. They weren’t perfect but they’re human and are improving .Neither of them deserve any hate and I wish them nothing but happiness
