Nobody's talking about it anymore. So why bring it up if there "shouldn't be any controversy"?

I never saw this before, just watched some youtube vids of her comments and i think she's hilarious. It'd be crazy to change her dialogue in future updates.

Didn't know there was any controversy.

"Game dev" complained to gearbox devs she was racist

Debate ensues

"Game dev" reminded by the company he works for he's a contractor and he's not an employee. Company asks him to remove his fake job title from his twitter account and cease the racist debate.

Contractor quits his job and whines all the way home.

This, exactly.

Thanks for the update.........not really newsworthy it appears.

Badonkadonk is a racist word now? Really? Crunk? Some people are just desperate to be offended it seems. They must trawl various forms of media just hoping that somebody says something to offend their delicate sensibilities. Those people need to get a life, go deal with actual racial issues.

There was a controversy? Oh for the love of God...

If THIS is enough to offend people, they'd best keep the real world at arm's length.

Cool, I wasn't aware she was his sister. I watched the tomb raider video. Thanks for the link.
