Video games have become a big part of the culture, whether it’s through the Internet or through direct communication through multiplayer play. The battle royale game Fortnite is a good example of this and a good place for it to grow.
Sin3278 is a professional Battle Royale Fortnite player who made it to the FNCS Grand Prix Final. Right now, he is being looked at by several authorities because he posted a video of himself filming a locker full of weapons. During the making of the video, he said:
These weapons are only intended in case of a zombie attack or n*gga attack..we have n*gga armory
And in this case, the player didn’t feel bad about using an explicit and clear racist term that is known in the West, which means “people with dark skin.” This angered many influencers and followers on social media, who thought it was a crime that can’t be tolerated.
Obviously, this isn’t everything, but the player Sin3278 tweeted through his account on social networking sites that he owns the video without a doubt and that he is proud to be a racist. He then deleted his Twitter account.
Sergio Braque, the director of esports at the University of Maryland, was upset by these actions and the fact that black people are not protected in this supposed space for play and entertainment. Even the social media influencer Nexy, who was the first person to take part in the racist video that was called “disgusting,” wrote on his account:
It’s crazy how child Sin3278 is being allowed to play globally After this tweet, there are also screenshots of him saying dangerous things.
Actually insane that people like this exist in the space. Fortnite player “Sin” who qualified for FNCS grand finals today openly saying he fears an “N word outbreak” while showing off his gun collection
