For fucks sake.
The man is almost killing himself to get this shit done, even publicly asking if he can cry now because of Iwata and people have nothing better to do? Leave him the fuck alone with your bullshit.

god what the fuck is wrong with people? This kind of behavior isn’t gonna get him playable, if anything it’ll do the opposite.

Blocking the name is pointless when you can just search the text of the tweet and pull it up

Fucking dumb as shit, videogames aren't this important

I don't see anything surprising about Waluigi fans acting like crybaby memers on social media when they already act like that everywhere else.

I'm pretty sure people who do this type of things can be defined less as Waluigi fans and more trolls/harassers who jump on memes and other stuff.

I seriously hate these people that take it upon themselves to harass the developers os any game. It's s stupid and never achieves anything. These people have way to much free time.

Lame joke. Hope Wah never gets in now.

Moreover: Lame character. Shitty portmanteau that only works in one language. They couldn't even be bothered to call him "Ewuigi" or something that works in English and plays to his defining characteristic - that he has poor hygiene. Which is a trait I'd wager most of these harassers share.

Waluigi is such a shit character. It makes sense that people willing to do this sort of harassment would be big fans.

Was talking about this in the main thread:

I really hate what the fan base is doing to this. Folks making it known they wanted a dude is OK, but then hearing/seeing that some accounts are just wholly adopting the worse aspects of internet shitposting towards the dude thinking that'd help them? That's going to make the entire character's fan base look like a hot mess and it's all the fault of a handful of assholes.
I mean, if these people literally are harassing Sakurai and Nintendo in general, I'd argue that's harm.
Yeah basically. Not gonna lie, I kinda hope the Waluigi folk make a miracle happen because the AT roster has gems that have been itching for playable since Brawl and this would set a tremendous precedent, but if they're going to be disgusting towards Sakurai and the dev team for it, it's not worth/shouldn't happen and I'd actively say they deserved it.

Man, I was bummed that Waluigi was not in Smash as a playable character, but this is pathetic. Leave Sakurai alone.

I'd venture that they are not "Waluigi fans", more like assholes who found their excuse to act like assholes, safeguarded by the total anonimity of online communities.

You know, the same old tiring shit as always.

Time to delete Waluigi from existence once and for all.

But really, I don't get how can anyone be mean to someone as likable as Sakurai. Shame on you.

Shit like this is why I no longer tell people I play video games. I don't want to be associated with the shithole part of the gaming community one bit

Really bothers me that they're fucking with a man who put his heart and soul into this. Another example of a bad look for gamers.

Not surprising. This "fandom" for a meme character was always just a front for the worst kind of internet denizens to act a fool.
