With the 10th anniversary of the hit game Minecraft approaching, Microsoft has confirmed that the game’s creator will be excluded from the celebration.
“His comments and opinions do not reflect those of Microsoft or Mojang and are not representative of Minecraft,” a Microsoft statement about Marcus “Notch” Persson reads. It was first provided to Variety.
Notch is an unremitting dick online, and he has been posting racist, transphobic, fascist, and other horrific comments online since he sold Minecraft to Microsoft in 2014 for $2.5 billion. He’s condoned violence against those who do not share his increasingly erratic views. And he’s endorsed the ridiculous QAnon conspiracy theory.
Anyway, Microsoft says that it will kick off the Minecraft 10th-anniversary with a special event in Stockholm, Sweden in May that will look at the “past, present and exciting future of the decade-old franchise.” Just not the Notch part.
