SJWs At Gossip Rag Game Informer Overreact to Destiny 2 Texture Containing Letter 'K'


Game Informer has the story.

Quote:
UPDATE: Changes have been made to this story since its original posting to more clearly reflect the story without supposition of motivation. Bungie reacted to this information quickly and we do not want to imply anything otherwise. The initial post made comments that were unnecessarily inflammatory to Bungie and to some readers and has since been corrected.

ORIGINAL STORY: The Road Complex AA1 gauntlets, a legendary item in Destiny 2, was discovered to bear a slightly tweaked logo that bears a resemblance to a hate symbol. Bungie has been made aware of the issue and is moving to get it removed.

The logo, which looks disturbingly like the hate symbol for "Kekistan," was discovered this morning by Waypoint, who then reached out to Activision and Bungie about the issue. Unless Bungie comes out and explains how it got into the game, it is unlikely the public will ever know.

The "Kekistan" flag resembles the Nazi third reich flag and emerged from online image boards. Popular white supremacists have used the logo during marches, which muddies the original intent as an admittedly off-color joke.

Bungie has explained that it was not intentional and they renounce hate.
The original URL explains why the article had to be updated.
http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2017/09/12/white-supremacist-logo-snuck-into-destiny-2-is-being-removed.aspx

But don't worry kids, Game Informer just reports the news.

You've got to be kidding me. Kekistan is a hate symbol? Since when? I guess if you consider weaponized memes against SJW babies hate crimes then I maybe. Shouldn't other flags be hate symbols then as welll but aren't?

The Russian Flag, the North Korean Flag Iranian flag, the Afgan flag, and so many others.

Is it actually using a 3rd reich flag as a template? I glanced through a list and didn't see many similar motifs.

As an aside, here's an article showing the item AND the flag they are referencing where the "news" site Game Informer only shows the offending article in the game rather than the full meal deal. They'd better get it together if they want to be a real news site instead of something like CNN.

https://www.oneangrygamer.net/2017/0...-symbol/39365/

One interesting note in the Angry Gamer article is how Destiny 2 is tracking over 50% fewer sales in the UK than the first game. I wonder if they have demographic data on if the people complaining are actually gamers or not. Typically I've found SJWs complain on the behalf of people they feel should be offended by something, not necessarily because they are the offended group. For example white people complaining about "racist" statues on behalf of black people who otherwise don't really give a shit because a statue of Robert E. Lee figures into their daily life about 0%.

Or white crusaders who don't even watch football trying to get the Washington Redskins to change their name on behalf of Indians when 9 out of 10 Native Americans could give a rip, and some of them even like the name.

Hah, I was talking to Evil this morning when he brought this up. I *JUST* got these sleeves from a faction turn in from Failsafe! Epic!



UPDATE: Hmm, it looks like the equipped sleeves do not show the same graphic. The green K imagery only shows in inventory, not on the player model. Step 1 to removal perhaps (it didn't require a patch to sub some other skin probably).

I uses the WW1 German Imperial flag. Not a 3rd reich flag.


Praise KEK and receive lulz, reject KEK and become lulz.

Kek has been normie stuff for a while now. Civic nationalism.

It would be unbelievable but it's actually not. And by that I mean the outrage, and subsequent response by Bungie, to this nothingburger, not the nothingburger itself.

I'm so glad I don't buy their shit. Vote with your wallet.

"KEK"? Like, Horde for LOL in WoW? Man I am so lost. On the plus side, the new graphic matches your hood better Pacer.

This is why some people are freaking out/butthurt. It looks very similar to a symbol used by White Supremacists.

As i already said, the flag is based on a WW1 German Imperial flag.

Also, there is no such thing as a white supremacist. You watch too much tv.

KEK is about as white supremacist as BLM. And yes, for the record KEK is a reference to World of Warcraft. As I recall KEK was the translation for LoL when seen from the other faction but I don't really care that much in this context.

Anyway, KEKs, Kekastan, whatever are a group who enjoy being politically incorrect and weaponizing memes against the chronically constipated who can't wring a single ounce of fun or justice out of the world unless it comes at the expense of others.

And when those chronically unfun and constipated people look around and don't see anything locally they can blow out of proportion as "injustice" rather than try to solve some global issue, like women's or gay rights in islamic countries, they make up injustice locally so they don't have to bother with, ya know, actually doing real activism.

According to "everyone" trolling these people makes KEK a white supremacist group. And by everyone I mean the usual tub of fools like the mainstream media, SPLC, and now apparently Chimpbot.

Of course these days all it takes is a slightly right of RINO view point (or to be pro-israel) to be considered a White Supremacist or some other sort of hate monger so I'm not sure the phrase has any teeth. The leftist who cried wolf and all.

Well written, vallor.

It's amazing that the media, and the Left are all up in arms about the so-called "White Supremacist epidemic" in this country. Give me a fucking break... It's no worse than it ever was. I'm more concerned about letting AntiFa run unchecked; they're the ones physically assaulting people at rallies (real quick to violence). They're the ones stomping/burning flags, and doing everything they can to silence dissenting opinions.

"white supremacist."

Since the media splashed those words I've read it so many, many times. Especially on youtube. Also 'white privilege'.

It's shocking how EASILY led society is by the press. Someone, somewhere, is laughing. A lot.
