Apparently AI Made an Artist Kill Himself for Stealing His Drawing Style. There is no way to stop the advancement of AIs, in the end, they will end up replacing many human activities, and that is a reason for happiness and sadness for some.
Apparently AI Made an Artist Kill Himself for Stealing His Drawing Style
Recently, a series of tweets made by an account without much information went viral on Japanese forums, according to his messages, he is concerned about the development of AI:
”I can’t stop crying”, ”I feel bad”, ”I can’t sleep”, I wish I had listened to them more”, ”Anger and sadness are driving me crazy” and ‘ ‘I can’t stop feeling nauseous’
In these new tweets many assume he says he has an illustrator friend who apparently would or would kill himself because of AIs?
”To everyone who uses these hashtags and steals artwork, please give it back to my friend #Alart #Allllustartion #StableDiffusion #Midjourney”
”I’ve always been mentally weak and easily swayed by the opinions of others, but when people say that denying AI development is ”old age” and that artists are to blame for being copycats, it makes me really sad”
”A friend called me crying and told me that he wanted all the AI rippers dead, that he deleted his Pixiv account and that he had no energy left to live”
”He mentioned that he admired Ken Akamatsu since he was little, but now that he supports AIs, he could never forgive him. Who set fire to all his manga”
Let’s take a look at what the Japanese think about this?
”If Pixiv had put its regulations in place earlier, would we have saved lives?”
”How stupid, you do illustrations because you have fun doing it”
”I reject the AI generation, but about this guy, I think he was going to end up like this anyway. You can’t keep working as an illustrator with that mentality”
”This is nonsense. Not even an insect dies because an AI has drawn an image for it. It means your life is worth less than that of an insect”
”Did he kill himself because he was depressed about being copied by an AI? What a big lie, such ineptness cannot exist”
“Akamatsu is terrible”
”I don’t know about you, but if an AI supporter committed suicide, how would the community react?”
”The old people against AI are so desperate that now suicide cases are invented to see if anyone turns against this technology”
”Well, maybe you can revive it by asking an AI”
”I don’t know if this is real or not, but I wish the guy would wait a little longer”
”Suicide? I would prefer to call it ”natural selection”. Did this guy really deserve to live?
”Well, I think his death was justified. Imagine if he had lived long enough to see advances in AI”
”I use AI to draw, but I’ve never felt rejection by real artists. Why should I feel this way about the people who built something I love?”
”Someone dies and the first thing you do is share it on Twitter?”
”AI illustrations have evolved a lot over the last few months. However, it is impossible that they end up replacing the real artists, they are exaggerating the situation”
It is worth mentioning that there is no concrete evidence of this artist’s suicide, there is no news about any case of the type yet and no information about the case, so it could very well be something false made to raise public awareness to stop using AIs, but let’s wait.
