Nintendo paid no money to gamers as a result of the lawsuit. They were required to invest $80 million in padded gloves that would be freely given to N64 owners, which it says in the article you linked! The interesting thing is most of those gloves went unused and undistributed because they had to be requested and most gamers weren’t aware of their existence.
Everything about this man and this book is completely loathsome, however, this decision has accomplished two things: 1. Provide more ammunition for the argument of those men that believe in the fallacy that males are “oppressed” and 2. Shown that there is public interest in such a book thus allowing Hoinsky to publish via another avenue and most likely increasing the amount of funding it will receive and number of units eventually sold. In no way do I believe kickstarter should’ve allowed this to happen but there’s really no winning here. If anything the, completely warranted, outrage and subsequent de-funding is just going to be a marketing tool.

Ha, in the article about Sony ads they had a similar thing. It was of course described by the author as “mocking blind people.” Buzzfeed everybody!
I’m done…deleting buzzfeed from my bookmarks right now and never coming back.
Seriously why was this article written? “Oh, the magazine that has as the main crux of its content pictures of nude women for men to masturbate to has advertisements that have a ‘callous’ attitude towards women? Well I never! And you mean to tell me the ads in my magazines exclusively devoted to video games and hunting depict violence? Who woulda thunk it?”
Wow! Base-level marketing is cynical and insultingly annoying, what a scoop!
I’m guessing this article is more about the twitter responses than actually calling the food network racist, hence the title formed asaquestion.Ifind it hilarious though that the related links has an article titled “Kwanzaa Food Porn” and the first picture is fried chicken.
