Baked Alaska is the online alias of Tim Gionet, an alt-right, white nationalist activist, who rose to prominence as a supporter Donald Trump during the 2016 United States Presidential.
Baked Alaska began his career online as a social media strategist for BuzzFeed, as well as Capitol Records. In 2013, he produced music videos as a comedy rapper under the alias Baked Alaska. However, the videos of Baked Alaska's early rap career, as of November 2017, have been removed from his official YouTube page.
While working for BuzzFeed, he claims that his political views changed from "carefree libertarian" who opposed the war on drugs and championed Black Lives Matter to a supporter of Donald Trump. In April 2017, he told Business Insider:
"BuzzFeed turned me into a monster[…]I was talking about the new Justin Bieber album. And I was like, 'Dude, that new Justin Bieber album is dope. I have to admit, I love Justin Bieber. He is totally my spirit animal.' And someone came up to me and was like, 'Hey bro, you can't say spirit animal, that's culturally appropriating Native American culture and that's not cool.'"
In 2016, he left BuzzFeed and worked as a tour manager for Milo Yiannopoulos' "Dangerous Faggot" tour, growing a following by commiserating with alt-right personalities such as Chuck Johnson and Mike Cernovich, gaining more than 160,000 Twitter followers as of April 2017.
In November 2016, a group of alt-right organizers, including Baked Alaska, collectively known as MAGA3X, announced the DeploraBall, an unofficial inauguration party for President Trump. On December 26th, 2016, Baked Alaska tweeted, "Jesse it's a common fact the media is run in majority by Jewish people, it's similar to observing blacks are good at basketball 🏀 congrats!"
The following day, he and fellow alt-right activist Richard Spencer were banned from the event for anti-Semetic comments. On December 27th, Baked Alaska tweeted, "Oy vey! Banned from Deploraball!"
Unite The Right Rally
On August 12th, 2017, during the white supremacist gathering, Unite The Right Rally, Baked Alaska was maced while marching with white nationalist. He later posted a video of the attack to YouTube, where it received more than 100,000 views.
On November 15th, 2017, Twitter permanently suspended Baked Alaska's account for violating the website's hateful conduct policy, which prohibits "repeated and/or or non-consensual slurs, epithets, racist and sexist tropes, or other content that degrades someone."
Later that day, Baked Alaska responded to the banning on a YouTube livestream. During the video he said:
"There needs to be some accountability," he said. "You can't just ban people when you disagree with them […] If you’re a public figure, you’re at a massive disadvantage if you don’t have a Twitter account."
Feud With Internet Bloodsports
On April 14th, 2018, Gionet livestreamed an appearance at a demonstration protesting air strikes against Syria (shown below).
Following the demonstration, Gionet continued a stream at his apartment, where he was joined by several friends. During the stream, YouTuber Mister Metokur called in to criticize Gionet for calling his audience "toxic" (shown below, left). On April 15th, Gionet appeared on the Internet Bloodsports show Warski Live, where he was confronted over the livestream controversy (shown below, right).
That evening, Gionet's thread on Kiwi Farms was updated with information about the controversy. On April 17th, 2018, the Bearing YouTube channel uploaded a video discussing the feud, which accused Gionet of being politically hypocritical and of using fraudulent DMCA claims to take down the YouTube channels of his enemies (shown below). The following day, Redditor cloudly0907 submitted a post asking "What is the drama between Baked Alaska and Andy Warski" to /r/OutOfTheLoop.
Baked Alaska's pro-nationalist and alt-right views, as well as his anti-Semetic comments have led him to being referred to as a neo-Nazi and white supremacist by the press and his critics. His believes and public comments have led him to be banned Uber, GoFundMe, Patreon and PayPal]
In the past he has tweeted the "14 words," a popular phrase among neo-Nazis. On April 13th, 2017, he tweeted, "I have no problem with white nationalists."
Baked Alaska was born in Anchorage Alaska. He has seven siblings and was raised Christian. He attended Azusa Pacific University, where he received a degree in marketing.
