I don’t know what else to tell you all. Stop bending the knee to China, and stop supporting censorship.
Monster Hunter: World has come under fire for a racist line from the upcoming film. A review bombing campaign is already underway on the game’s Steam user reviews, and it doesn’t look like they’ll be letting up anytime soon.
This outrage, however, is not without merit. The Monster Hunter film, which came out in China on December 3rd, contains a racist line that’s rightfully upsetting many Chinese people. In the movie, two characters reference an old playground chant that goes “Chinese, Japanese, dirty knees – look at these.” This twisted nursery rhyme mocks Asian people, so it’s no surprise that Chinese filmgoers are upset.
