Hey, since Devil May Cry 5 is kind of a huge deal right now, I felt like you should be aware of this if you haven’t bought it yet because YIKES
(TW: Victim blaming, transphobia, racism, antisemitism, and probably a whole lot of other awful things)
So it turns out the voice of Dante
a) Victim blames the victims of former Funimation voice actor Vic Mignogna
b) Believes that Black Lives Matters and Me Too “go too far”
c) Believes in a racist conspiracy theory called “QAnon” that states Trump is being undermined and targeted by the vague concept of “the deep state” (which of course includes mentions of Obama, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros)
And the guy they hired to play supporting character Morrison, who was re-designed from a white man to a black man, was a white man who makes racist and transphobic jokes on his youtube channel.
Oh, and I feel it’s worth reminding everyone that Dante’s theme song from the game (I’m not sure if the version in the final game was played by the same performers) was done by the band Suicide Silence, who’s lead singer tried to get teen girls into sending him nudes.
My thoughts: Video games are bad.
