Any followers/ or not, of Jontron probably heard about his ignorant little racist rant. Well Playtonic dropped him from their 'Yooka-Laylee' game. What's hilarious about it, is how many of Jontron's loyal followers seem to think that the game's entire success hinges on him. LOL! People didn't back this game because of Jontron! People backed it because they wanted another 'Banjo Kazooie' game! I love how people fool themselves into thinking this game will suddenly fail because Playtonic dropped Jontron's sorry, racist, insignificant, ass!

I thought it was an overreaction when I first heard about the controversy, like he just said that he liked Trump or something.

Then looking into it I saw him talking about how we need racial segregation.

Yeah... Good job Playtonic.

It's 2 hours long so while it is entertainingly surreal it's a big time commitment wen really you can get his point from just a 2 minute song.

Damn, really? I don't have a problem with the dude liking trump but racial segregation?
This isn't the 1930s.

I really thought JonTron was a good dude.

Just goes to show that you can't always trust an onscreen persona, I guess.

I don't think hes a bad guy, he just made a lot of controversial points in a really bad way. Destiny (the guy, not the concept...) kind of blindsided him and he reacted like a cornered animal. Not pretty.

https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2017/03/popular-youtuber-jontron-has-some-wild-thoughts-on-immigration-hed-like-to-share/

This article both gives you a couple of examples and also a link to the 2 hour thing if you really wanna slog through that.

"wealthy black Americans commit more crimes than poor whites" (no they don't)

"We've gotten rid of discrimination in our Western countries" and then "nobody wants to become a minority in their own country" (One of these is not like the other)

That's really just the tit of the iceberg, but I'll let you get to the rest on your own.

I hate Donald Trump and disagree with Jontron but when I see comments and views like yours. I hope he crew you all over even more.

Uh...none of that is near as bad as racial segregation dude

Like I get saying that rich black people do more criminal acts than poor white people is controversial...but he was on a debate. That's not something to slander him over, and the person that he was debating with ended up looking into it and posted a video the next day talking about how that was apparently true. I don't care if it is true or not, but that's no where near as bad as supporting racial segregation. [or at least I saw a video clip of that...I don't particularly care to chase down the other youtuber]

That article is also terribly written tbh.

I mean I'm not a fan of jontron, I don't really care. But why go as far to say that he supports racial segregation or write nasty articles? Tbh even if he said some things that sound weird, they were no where near as shocking as I thought they were gonna be. Most of what I read in articles about the incident made it seem like he was tired of double standards pertaining to thought speak based on race. You can argue whether or not he's wrong, but you're overblowing this. It's really not worth the controversy. Sensationalism.

Like I said...


That's just the tip of the iceberg


I clearly stated that that was not intended to represent the worst of what he said, so idk what you're getting upset about the two being different.

And yeah, the article is written like ass, but it's slim pickings when you need a convenient write up for someone who nobody who doesn't watch youtube regularly knows about.

The dude wants to halt immigration because he doesn't want there to be more non whites than whites. That would be segregation, dude.

Don't act stupid to defend yourself, you're a cool user but this is just a misinterpretation.

Two points :

A) You said you "apparently found out" he was supporting racial segregation. If you found this out from skimming the internet without checking out the 2 hour video, then how in holy hell is it not in the article or anywhere else on the internet? Because I can't find it!

B) IF HE CAME OUT AND SUPPORTED RACIAL SEGREGATION do you really think the article would talk about slightly controversial things? No. It's sensationalism for a reason : If they had something big to report they'd do it. instead they blew up a few slightly controversial things and made it seem like a huge big racist issue.


Like tbh if he came out and supported racial segregation it could even make television. Smaller youtubers have been covered on the news.

Edit : He didn't say that either btw. Lol.
