thats just too similar...
they are reaching when they say, "It is not intentional." I'm sure it's not intentional on the part of Bungie or Activision. But it's the intent of someone.
In such a large company, it's a given you'll have alt-right assholes. The interesting part is how you deal with it.
Bungie at least handled this situation well. It hadn't gotten noticed until they issued the apology and replaced it. I give them props for getting out in front of the issue. I think a lot of studios would have quietly changed it without saying anything in order to avoid controversy.
Yeah, the first I heard about it was their apology.
So fed up with this 4chan Kekistan bullshit

So Bungie's twitter feed said they're removing gauntlets from the game because markings on them could be interpreted "as hateful". So that's what the patch was I do believe.
1/2 It’s come to our attention that a gauntlet in Destiny 2 shares elements with a hate symbol. It is not intentional. We are removing it.
2/2 Our deepest apologies. This does NOT represent our values, and we are working quickly to correct this. We renounce hate in all forms
Depending on if they use source control for assets, they can probably just click through and find the exact employee. I assume they are, because they have High Moon Studios and Vicarious Visions making armor and other art models and general assistance for D2.
hope they find the dude who snuck this in and get rid of him. too close to be a coincidence imo
L O fucking L
Whoever is on your art team, you better take a hard look and purge them from your studio.
I was thinking this could be unintentional and someone else probably did the flavour text, but yeah. That's looking grim.
I can't read the full flavor text but this had to be intentional.

Must be referring to White privilege. Didn't the Speaker wear all white as well...
Hope Bungie find the person and fire them
