I always feel like people like to signal boost these stories to make it sound like there is a huge controversy going on. Like with Chutchel, the way some tell the story they make it sound like developer Amanita was *forced* to make changes to their protagonist, as if in response to an angry crowd laying siege through social media. If that's what really happened, you'd be hard pressed to find any evidence of said flame war, the discussion now being entirely dominated by those upset that the poor developer had to buck to public pressure and compromise their vision.
Is that what happened? Or did Amanita possibly just decide, "Hey, you know, now that we think about it, this design might be a little problematic. let's change it to avoid upsetting anyone." Which of course set an even angrier flood in motion...
This of course is just a slightly less ridiculous retread of what happened with Cuphead, and the non-controversy surrounding that game. So many people screaming into the void about how in the name of political correctness people are now getting upset at this game for paying homage to an animation style tangentially related to culturally insensitive cartoons. Nobody ever seemed to stop to ask, "Wait, who are we screaming at again?" Because truth was, while several journalists did broach the issue, nobody was actually accusing MDHR of insensitivity, or claiming that they were creating racist caricatures. By simply acknowledging the existence of racist cartoons, readers immediately assumed that journalists were once again trying to ruin our fun with some of that dreaded political correctness.
And of course Cuphead isn't racist. Of course Chutchel isn't blackface. That's why it's so easy to get people worked up and angry over those 'Moral busybodies, ruining our fun', because it's obviously bullshit.
But maybe, before you grab your pitchforks and torches, see if there's actually anyone out there genuinely making those claims, and see if the response you had planned is really warranted.
