That's probably the most sincere of an apology she can muster to be honest. Anyone that does more than that is probably full of shit, you don't get a boost in moral integrity cause someone called you out on shit you've been saying for years on end, no forced lessons learned unless it's a movie script.
That's the same mecanism of the mind that makes her have those racist / homophobic ideas : idiocy.
Lol ok. I guess being racist makes you a gamer then?
Why should i be responsible for another dickhead's action? If i play games a hobby and partake in gaming forums, that's easily someone who's a gamer.
Because a community holds a level of responsibility for the behaviour they allow and tolerate. You're doing the equivalent of "not all men/white people" or whatever when you meet criticism of the actions of a group with "well I'm not like that, not all of us are like that". Cool, then come with that same energy to combat it if you feel so strongly.
No I'm brown so i don't need to hear that shit over and over. Just because some brown people blow themselves up, i don't need to aplogise on behalf of my community because of some fucked up people. Ya get it now?Because a community holds a level of responsibility for the behaviour they allow and tolerate. You're doing the equivalent of "not all men/white people" or whatever when you meet criticism of the actions of a group with "well I'm not like that, not all of us are like that".

Otherwise just suck it up. Being a gamer is not a fucking defining identity trait lol.
You're not going to get away from it on any site with even a mildly progressive lean. All the gaming controversies and figures showing their ass time and time again is what colours this opinion. It doesn't come from thin air.
This is a gross simplification of the issue at hand and I'm not even going to dignify it with a genuine response. And no one has asked you to apologize for gamers. No one asked you to do anything. Yall are mad because someone saying gamers are trash gets you in your feelings. Speak out against the things that color that opinion then. Dont get mad that the community's actions have people with negative feelings.
I agree with most of what you said, but I can't stand the grocery store line. There is a massive difference between this girl and the grocery store incident... mainly the fact that the girl didn't actually use the slur it sounded like. There are combinations of words that can mash together to form vulgar or offensive sounding terms. Why should somebody be torn down if they didn't actually say anything offensive?Sorry, but after all the crap happening over on Twitch, such as management ignoring even the obvious stuff. I have zero expectations of them doing anything about this. Toxic streamers just keep getting away with outrageous stuff such as this.
But this chick, wtf........ ain't got nothing on the grocery store.
That clip was out of context but she's a huge asshole regardless of it being out of context. Jenna and any of the streamers who are racist as fuck deserve a permaban.
