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.
Yooka Laylee launches April 11 on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
