‘Yooka Laylee’ Removes YouTuber JonTron From Game

YouTuber JonTron aka Jonathan Jafari has come under fire recently for comments about immigration and politics. A statement to Gamesindustry.biz by Yooka Laylee’s developer Playtonic Games says Jafari’s voice has been removed from their game.

JonTron is a talented video presenter who we were initially, two years ago, happy to include as a voice contributor in our game. However, in light of his recent personal viewpoints we have made the decision to remove JonTron’s inclusion in the game via a forthcoming content update. (Gamesindustry.biz)

JonTron is a former member of the “Game Grumps” and now hosts his own YouTube channel called the JonTronShow. The channel currently has over three million subscribers.
