Twitch Suspends Trump for 'Hateful Conduct'

At first I was thinking maybe he didn’t know who Moriarty is and was just being a mindlessly posi person about indie games. But click into the replies and there are receipts of Druckmann showing support during the Kinda Funny fallout. Folks, we have ourselves a snek boy stan.

There is (or was) another subreddit or meme called “tumblr in action” which was built around cherry-picking the “worst” moments of left criticism or trans identity. So Kotaku in Action is a five minute hate forum where people find gaming takes they don’t like and whine about it.

Proud to say I made it on there once.
