Microsoft apologizes for 'racist' zombie noise in email subject line

Rebel Staff
 

Microsoft sent out an email yesterday advertising the new video game Dead Rising 4, which as the title suggests, is about zombies. However, the email's subject line made some SJWs have a hissy fit.

The subject line was “NNNNGGGHHHAAAA”, which, if you look at through ultra sensitive racist spotting glasses, may appear to be a racial slur. Or, you know, just a zombie growl.

Director of Programming Larry Hryb took to Twitter to apologize. “Today we sent a DR4 email where a zombie roar was interpreted by many as a racial slur. We apologize and promise to do better next time,” he said.

The reactions to his tweet were swift, with people saying there was nothing to be offended over.

“Don't apologize, people are too easily offended nowadays,” one user tweeted. “If people got offended by this they were looking for something to be offended by. Next a dogs growl will be considered racist,” another said.

Damn. Talk about being micro soft.

Oh, Drew, now I am sooo offended. I never thought of that. “People before profits” as they say. But like all lefties that only applies to the great unwashed for which they feel such compassion.

Well! I’ve never been so offended in my life! NNNNGGGHHHAAA indeed! Think of the left wing children! Just wait until we get finished protesting Trump. Microsoft is next on the hit parade. I mean hit list. I’ve never heard such a racist rant. The perpetrators will pay. Not sure what it refers to but I gotta get on the SJW bandwagon before it leaves without me.
