Game Developer Cuts JonTron From Title Following Anti-Immigrant Remarks

JonJonTron’ Jafari has been removed from a video game called Yooka-Laylee by U.K. developer Playtonic after the YouTube star made several incendiary, far-right statements in recent weeks about immigration and race.

Jafari, who counts roughly 3.1 million subscribers on his own gaming channel, and who co-founded a network of gaming channels called NormalBoots, according to Gizmodo, tweeted his support for Iowa Representative Steve King’s anti-immigrant statement that “We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies.”

Subsequently, in a two-hour livestream with fellow gamer Steve Bonnell, Jafari likened immigration to apartheid South Africa and made other false claims, including that Mexicans are setting up ethnic enclaves to take over parts of America and wealthy black Americans commit more crimes than poor whites. He also expressed anxiety about the fact that he believes whites will become a minority in the U.S. by the year 2042, according to Gizmodo.
