Yooka-Laylee should be its own game with its own feeling. It shouldn't try to be like Banjo-Kazooie, it shouldn't try to be like Donkey Kong, it should be like Yooka-Laylee.

Personally I don't think playtonic kicked him out just because he disagreed with them. I think it was because as he said some controversial things, he would be surrounded with controversy. So to prevent getting caught in this controversy, they distanced themselves from JohnTron.

Why are so many people interpreting this as anti-conservative or whatever? Jontron expressed blatantly racist and white supremecist views. Now, he pretty clearly did so out of ignorance rather than malice, but all the same he still said those things and Playtonic was just distancing themselves from racism and white surpremecy, not conservatism.

Are there really this many people who think that black people are intrinically inferior or that it's important to preserve the white race as dominant within our country? Or that these viewpoints should be given equal consideration and treated with equal validity as any other?

I think this goes far beyond Jontron and Playtonic, and relates more to the fact that irreconcilable differences in opinion are growing stronger in our society. It's only going to get worse from here.
