In March 2017, Playtonic announced that YouTube personality JonTron, real name Jon Jafari, who was originally to voice a character in Yooka-Laylee, would be removed from the game amidst controversy about his "racist comments on immigration, ethnicity and nationalism".
In a statement to Gameindustry.biz, Playtonic said "in light of his recent personal viewpoints we have made the decision to remove JonTron's inclusion in the game via a forthcoming content update."
So? The cast and crew of the Ghostbusters reboot slandered people who have ACTUAL concerns about the movie by calling them "Sexist, Racist, Misogynistic, Basement Dwelling Trump Supporters", yet Sony did nothing of the kind. In fact, they joined in the slandering.
This whole thing is pretty much the Mighty No.9 Community Manager controversy all over again.
Playtonic, I've lost respect for you after this news.
Way to pander to all the dumbass Buzzfeed/NeoGAF/Tumblr freakshows, you fucking pussies!
For those curious, this should explain things.
