Even before the news broke, it wasn't looking good for Dapper Laughs...
No matter how bad a day you're having just remember someone has 'Commissioned Dapper Laughs for a six part TV series' on their CV.— tom jamieson (@jamiesont) November 10, 2014
Yes, finally, following complaints, a petition and social media backlash against his show, ITV decided to axe 'Dapper Laughs - On The Pull'.
Or to put it another way:
Dapper no longer Laughs— Chris Weatherspoon (@christoph_21) November 10, 2014
But while the man himself was no doubt gutted...
Dapper Laughs takes the call from ITV2, tears run down his cheek. He wipes his eyes. "Proper moist" he whispers to himself.— TechnicallyRon (@TechnicallyRon) November 10, 2014

...it's fair to say that the people of Twitter were delighted by the news:

Huge disappointment when I heard that Dapper Laughs has been axed. And that they were only talking about his show.— James Martin (@Pundamentalism) November 10, 2014
They cancelled Dapper Laughs' show? Shame. I was looking forward to that. Much in the same way I'd look forward to multiple organ failure.— cluedont (@cluedont) November 10, 2014
I think it's fair to say Dapper Laughs was just misunderstood. By anyone who defended him.— Rhys James (@rhysjamesy) November 10, 2014

Although there were some concerns...
I think what worries me most about us getting Dapper Laughs' TV show cancelled is that this is a classic super-villain origin story.— Gary Bainbridge (@Gary_Bainbridge) November 10, 2014
I have to admit, I'm a little sad that pressure forced ITV to axe Dapper Laughs. I wanted good old normal failure to topple the prick.— Mitten d'Amour (@MittenDAmour) November 10, 2014
But what's next for the 'comedian'? Well, there's the Alan Partridge scenario...

The DVD option...
DAPPER LAUGHS. Release a highlights reel containing all the funny material from your TV series as a 6 second Vine video. @Castmana1— Twop Twips (@TwopTwips) November 11, 2014
The mind-blowing option...

And the alternative careers:
Still, he might just get a new series...
Looking forward to ITV's new commission 'Dapper Laughs - On The Dole'.— Tiernan Douieb (@TiernanDouieb) November 10, 2014
Dapper Laughs started work on his second series today. Because no means yes.— Matt Leys (@mattleys) November 10, 2014
