An embarrassing moment occurred recently when insiders at r/GamingLeaksAndRumors leaked a game journalist’s YouTube history which showed him researching a gaming tutorial for Kirby and The Forgotten Land. Understandably upset, commenters have flooded social media with vitriol, and began circulating a Change.org petition calling for the journalist’s immediate termination.
“Imagine getting paid to play video games, and you still suck at them,” reads one post from user BayonettasHusband0, while another frustrated commenter changes the subject, stating, “Nintendo is so lazy. It’s literally just a copy and paste of Mario 64 with a new character. You should be embarrassed even to play this game.”
Responding to the waves of backlash, the journalist’s recent Twitter post pleads, “Please leave me alone. My 9-year-old son was using my iPad.”
This claim has yet to be confirmed, and at the time of this writing, he still has his job. But enough fan backlash and signatures could end up dooming him.
