A U.S. Navy Twitch Stream Included Jokes About Nagasaki and the N-Word

Goats & Glory, the U.S. Navy Esports team, played Among Us on Twitch this Saturday night and hosted other players who used the names “Japan 1945,” “Nagasaki,” and “Gamer Word.” Nagasaki and Japan 1945 are references to the U.S. nuclear bombing of Japan at the end of World War II. “Gamer Word” is a reference to the n-word. During the one hour and 17minute long stream, Pepe the Frog Twitch chat emojis covered portions of the screen.

Sounds like they’re doing a good job appealing to the kind of folks they want to recruit.


I wish any of this was surprising.
