Quoted from sandro:
I would say that it's pathetic that respecting our fellow humans would take a backseat to playing a game people even haven't seen yet. Companies are free to ignore what people they choose to market or promote have done or said in the past, but risk seeing the result on the bottom line. Others in this thread have voted with their wallet simply because JJP didn't *market* their next game well. I can't even begin to imagine supporting a company that promotes racist, sexist, and/or homophobic speech.
See that's being part of the problem.
You're telling me in your whole life you've never said or did something you regret, and that you're a better person now?
If you follow the band they are not racist, homophobic or sexist. The band also has a two black members, and a woman. Finally, they did have a song that illustrated what you said, but it was a long time ago, and they actually edited the song on future releases of it. People learn. Guns N Roses were a young band. You're telling me 18 year old you and 40 year old you is the same person? No, we mature. Cancel culture is toxic, it doesn't allow people to grow.
Finally speaking of sexist. AC/DC was a great selling pin, Aerosmith, Metallica, etc. were as well. JJP shouldn't fear cancel culture, its discouraging that the if you're loud and ignorant, you get to dictate where we go as a society. Lots of people casting stones and need to worry about themselves first. This whole cancel culture has ruined comedy, television, news, etc. People are all living in fear of offending someone else.
