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.
