David Jaffe Hits Out at Twisted Metal Fan

A Twisted Metal fan has hit out at the game's creator's decision to include Jay-Z songs in the upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive. Naturally, David Jaffe wasn't too pleased with the fan's comments and the God of War creator has responded to the fan's 'racist' comment. (David Jaffe, Industry, PS3, Twisted Metal )

The guy was being a douche alright.

Still, I dont like Jay-Z music... Im not very happy with him being on the soundtrack. I really dont like his music. But to go on an offensive personal attack to its skin color is just ridiculous.

makes me laugh when people accuse people of being racist because they wont date someone from oppositte music preference.

So i find it funny how other people seem to think they have a right to dictate when it is ‘wrong’ that they dont date inter racially.

Jaffe calls out a racist and MSxbox-world calls him a douche. That makes sense. /s

But it's Playstation related. I shouldn't be surprised.

@Above comment
The comment wasn't racist because he didn't like rap. It's how he said it.

I wouldn't mind a little "99 problems" on a Twisted Metal stage. "Kingdom Come" would be hot. Maybe a little "Public Service Announcement" during the menus...I dunno...has some potential to me.

@Silent - They didn't call Jaffe a douche anywhere in the article. Also the comment is very racist, he says:

" Not to be racist but I don't want to here blacks rap about there bitches and hoes at all. Nor do I want them playing TM. "

That's very racist imo.
Spydiggity  +   1502d ago
lets be clear here. the guy probably is a racist...but his comment was NOT racist. mentioning skin color does not make you a racist. He was not hating on another person's skin color, he was hating on the music.

hating on music is not racist and it's perfectly okay to do so. he shouldn't have said it the way he did though, because small minded people will deflect away from the issue (which is that the music choice sucks) and focus on the fact (the semantics) that he said "black."

again, the guy may be a racist...seems likely, but the point of the comment was not to be racist, it was to express a distaste in TM's choice of music. the person expressing the distaste just happens to be an idiot.

now, if anyone else says "jay-z sucks," they will also be labelled as a racist; when in fact, jay-z just plain sucks. if you're gonna put in some rap, lets go for some quality underground stuff...especially since TM feels like an underground type of setting (not literally underground). maybe some Immortal Technique (not really underground anymore, i suppose)?

If you guys seriously do not think that what the dude said wasn't racist, you need to re-look at it a couple times.

"'Really? Most of these suck! Is he really trying to get Jay-z songs in a Twisted Metal? Not to be racist but I don't want to here blacks rap about there bitches and hoes at all. Nor do I want them playing TM. "

I don't want to 'here' black's rap about their bitches and hoes at all.

****Nor do I want them playing TM."

If that ain't racist that I don't know what is.

Okay.. "Not to be racist" Stop there, you know a racist comments coming.
Just because he mentioned that, he knew what he was sayin; bein racist.
"but I don't want to here blacks rap about there bitches and hoes at all."
Okay, so that may be more stereotypical, but being racist can be debatable.
"Nor do I want them playing TM." If you say that's not racist.. You're ignorant.

Spydiggity  +   1502d ago
i already explained VERY clearly why the statement itself isn't racist.

if he said "i want black ppl to die, or black ppl are ugly, or w/e" THAT would be racist.

what he said was that rap music is about hoes and whatever. well, that's actually pretty factual...sure, it's a generalization, but it's still not a lie.

the guy may very well be a racist, and the comment may have been tinged with racial connotation; but the point of the comment was that he didn't want a certain type of music in this game, and THAT is NOT racist.

people are so overly sensitive towards what white people say. if a black person said country music was just white people singing about trucks, would you think that's racist? NO! you wouldn't. because the comment isn't racist. it's a semi-factual generalization. the person that said it might be a racist, but the comment itself is not.

people really need to grow up and stop deflecting the issues with semantics. that is the point i was making, and i stand by it. i fully expected to get a ton of disagrees for my comment. people aren't smart enough to think beyond unimportant points...that's why nothing ever gets done in washington...too much emphasis on semantics and not enough focus on the real point.

if a racist says "i like turtles," that doesn't make the statement racist. his views towards race have NOTHING to do with the statement.

stop trying to be so overly pc and THINK! political correctness is such a blight on society anymore. sympathy and empathy are a good thing, but political correctness is a BS means of guilting stupid people into towing the line. and in this case, jaffe is using it as a way of side-stepping the issue, and that is that he is being called out for putting music that some ppl don't like into his game. but instead of doing the grown up thing, and arguing about why he put that music in there, he's deflecting the argument into an issue of race so that he doesn't have to address it. see how easy it is to win an argument when you make accusations of race? he automatically wins. it's incredibly childish.

EDIT: Ignorance is expressing an opinion or a point of view despite a total lack of knowledge or understanding. I completely understand where you people are coming from, and i partially agree. but the ignorance is your position on the argument when the overall point of the statement is about the music, not about black people. most rappers are black, and much of rap is about money and hoes. you can't dispute these facts. the fact that the guy is racist is irrelevant to the perspective being presented. he doesn't think rap music is well suited for twisted metal. if jaffe thinks it is, the ONLY argument that he counters with should be about why rap music IS suited for his game.
i recommend everyone goes and reads the text book called "The Art of Reasoning."

I agree with the guy to an extent. I don't want to hear that kind of music. Twisted METAL.....should have METAL right?!
Kleptic  +   1502d ago
This is always a tricky topic to comment on without having someone pull the R card...

The kids statement was 'racist' in the extent that he labeled it 'not to be racist, but...'...

but what no one can argue against is that 80% of rap is generally a 'black person bitching about his hoes'...or 'money'...or 'weed'...its like people that don't prefer that type of music are not allowed to mention that most of it is exactly that...

and its perfectly fine for ANYONE to not like it...personally i can't listen to more than 30 seconds of pretty much all of Jayz's stuff...I don't find it cool, or hip, or why it sells so much...

but do I care if its in TM?...no...I understand there are plenty of people that do like it, and that doesn't bother me at all either...Pretty much any modern video game will have some degree of music I don't prefer, and i just either get over it, or hope the game has the custom music feature...which pretty much all Ps3 games do now anyway...

just lighten up...the kid had a point that the majority of available rap songs center around what he mentioned...that isn't his fault...he just went about the comment completely wrong, but its not like the backlash was THAT big of a deal either...

reminds me of this; still one of the funniest things i've seen this guy do:

I do how ever like older hip hop. Don't call me a racist though becuase I'm not, and if think I am well, I guess I have to tell the creator of my favorite game to F-off. Though if you could understand that it was a joke and realize you tweat got me into pointless arguments at TMA i'll definitely over look this and still respect you."

This guy was a total Douche bag. "Don't call me a racist though because I am not" See that is the problem with most people these days that make racist comments... They don't think they are being racist because they only make comments or just talk that way to friends about others of a different race. News flash to all the ignorant individuals like this person. If you think that way, even if you don't publically say it, you are at your core a racist. And for this idiot...if you are going to put up in a public forum that kind of BS... you most certainly are a racist.

Lastly, racism is a disease born from lack of education. If you are a racist you are sick... you could be cured through learning but sadly most will die inside from it.

Dlacy13g  +   1502d ago
@jimmywolf... I never said if you hate someone you are a racist. I fully understand someone can hate another individual and have justified reasons for the hate. But to hate all people of a race for no other reason than their race is racist and through my eyes wrong.

I do agree with you that at some point most everyone (there are always exceptions) will harbor some kind of racist thought or feeling of anger. It is through education and understanding that we realize those thoughts are miss-guided. I don't hate racists, I just feel sorry for them that they have such an uninformed view of life and society.
No Way  +   1502d ago
@Dlacy13g -
What's funny to me about people and racism, is my thought about it.
Parents who are racist tend to raise there kids to be the same; racist.
Though, all that is doing, hypothetically, is raising your kids to be hated.
Because, if you are racist, you will hate people (for no logical reason).
Therefore, hating a whole race for a stupid reason, makes people hate you.

At least, that's the way I look at it, when I see parents 'teach' their kids.

I know right? I remember the good old' days when you had to say stuff to someone’s face. I was born and raised down here in the south and you want to know what really turned me away from being a racist growing up? It was the hypocrisy and the fact was, most racist I knew were scared bitches. They would be all ”N-word this” and “Those stupid N-word that”, until we were around some actual black guys, then they flipped to "Oh I'm not Racist", and just acted all scared. I also had my step mom raise us not to be that way, but seeing these half-ass racist with their tails between their legs every time a black guy would show up really hit the point home. I also fell in love with a half Filipino girl, and now we’ve been together for 14 years and are married with 2 kids. How could I be racist against just certain race’s? That’s just more hypocrisy. I treat people how they treat me no matter what color they are. I have some black friends that call me brother, and some ex-white friends that hate me for it. I just think we’re all god’s children and life is just too short to hate all the time, especially just for the color of the skin someone was born with.

Well, I wouldn't call him racist, however to some the portrayal of women in black rap and hip/hop is offensive. I know many people who dislike hip hop for that very reason, also the extensive use of the "N" word. The gangsta mentality of mainstream hip hop artists is over-the-top and playing into racial stereotypes. I think these "artists" try to find common ground with the urban thugs but they're just feeding the flames.

Give me some motown music over hip hop any day! There are some awesome, timeless songs by black artists, but I don't consider hip hop songs to be among them.

I hesitate to call anybody a racist. However, you can't deny that his comments smacked of racism. As for rap music, unfortunately rap music has turned toward the materialist and misogynistic excuse for music that we hear now. It wasn't ALWAYS about that. Just as rock was not always about the drug and alcohol induced misogynistic romps glorified by the bands of the 80's. Bottom line is that record labels, execs, and to that extent artists have tarnished music in general.
As for Motown, I'm all in. That music is timeless. Some of the best music ever created came from that era. As for hip hop, there ARE timeless classics from that genre as well. You just have to reach back in the crates to find them.

You're supposed to punch up not down. You IGNORE stupid shit from people who aren't worth a response instead of feeding them like a grass fire on a windy day.

maybe you guys should listen to jay-z cause out of his 500+ song less than 10 or maybe even 5 are about killing people,more about his neighborhood where he grew up and how his life has changed over time. Then again why would anyone be all sensitve over rap music? this isn't a game for kids and will have lots of killing in it and the other music in it will rest assured be 10x as graphic as anything jay-z has recorded,im sure it wont have a hip hoop beat to it keeping with the musical tone of the game it will probably be one of songs on a rock type beat which should sound interesting,no one would complaing if rage agaist the machine was on it so stfu,i loved twisted metal 2,i doubt this will be the game to make me get a ps3,not till they're are $199,im more than pleased with my xbox atm.

That's probably because RATM are actually a metal band.

He will tweet back and say the ever famous sentence that ALL racists use when they are exposed for their full motion retardation:

"Bu..BUT...I am not RACIST AT ALL!!! I have many "****" friends!
(put in Black or Jewish or Middle Eastern or Asian or any other ethnic group in that blank space)

Why would you ever feel the need to say anything against a certain race to begin with. If you have a beef against a certain person...fine go for it, air it out. But to lump all people of a certain race (white, black, asian...you name it) and make a comment against them is in and of itself a racist move. Skin color does not define a person.
Dlacy13g  +   1502d ago
@CrimsonSaber... there is nothing wrong with him saying he doesn't want to hear rap music in a TM game. But saying "I dont want to hear about blacks rapping..." and his comment "I bet theres a black guy on his team that needs pleasing" Thats just straight up racist bullshit.
CrimsonSaber  +   1503d ago
And to you Jaffe. My god your a genius at marketing your games but your a F*N idiot at the same time... go take the I.D. 10 test ( ps guys if you dont know what an I.D.1.0.Test is well then there ya go)
SockMaster  +   1503d ago
I think every game needs a bit of megadeth in it, but seriously racism aside I would love some Big 4 on the game!

lyrical ability>Speds strumming chords
DigitalRaptor  +   1500d ago
@ maxmill
What the hell have you been smoking all your life? How is lyrical ability better than actual music?

Music >>>>>> lyrics alone

Lyrics are the crutch of the rap community. The good thing about other types of music is that you can have both great musical sound and great lyrics.

So basicly, a jerk makes a comment then another jerk responds. Thats right I said it, Jaffe was one big jerk before this happened. Nothing to see here.

Jaffe is a PC cry baby

rap has no business is a TM game

should be metal

black dahlia, pantera, soulfly, sepultura

Yeah, and the game's CREATOR has less idea what fits on his game than you do? Srsly?

I'm no massive fan of either Hip Hop(not as stands today anyway)or trad Rock and Metal but I'm willing to assume that a film maker and/or a game director know what "feels" right when matching sound to their images. As a songwriter and musician I've often been pleasantly amazed at what others have found as uses for things I either created myself or merely sang or performed on. Honestly, you must allow creative people to use whatever tool they see fit for their own projects and only pass personal judgement AFTER seeing the final product of their processes-You and I might find Jay-Z an odd choice and out of keeping for TM but Jaffe knows his monster better than we do and if he thinks it's right then it prolly is.

yeah i think the creator of TM knows a bit more about what belongs in it than you do...

RAP in Twisted Metal?

slugboss  +   1502d ago
I thought there was a valid point in it too. But apparently more people are interested in calling this dude racist, than playing the game...
baker_boi  +   1502d ago
What's the valid point about Rap not being in a game about blowing people up with rockets and bombs, then running them over?

Oh, because why want to take the title of the game as a pun, "Twisted Metal", "Heavy Metal" right? Bitch please.

You know there are black characters in the game right? So what if they don't want to listen to no heavy metal? Should they just be striken from the game?

Matter of fact, the dude who made the comment said he didnt even want my black ass playin the game, then said he was jokin. That aint no damn joke.

The world is just gonna have to get used to black people moving on from old media tropes. Blues, Juke, Jazz, Swing, Rock n Roll, Funk, Punk, all that's old to us now. Doesn't mean it's not any good, we just moved on.

It's about that time for Hip-Hop now. Yall can have that when we done. Start playin a guitar in that genre next. lol

Yall can call it Satan-Hop or somethin.
