Arin of the "Game Grumps" fame asks should they make a BLM statement, does it anyway



Geez Louise.

Arin Hanson, of the GG fame, asked his 1 million followers today if he should make a statement in solidarity of #BlackLiveMatter and the protests happening around the country in the wake of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmed Aubry, and the countless others at the hand of the world's largest gang the police. His reasoning was that he didn't want a message to ring hollow from their "brand" and disrupt some coin despite he himself supporting the movement.


Many of his followers asked him to do so -







Shortly after, he says he will support the movement, frustrated by his own hesitation -


I know news about internet celebs are kinda loved/hated here, and gaming celebs even more so, but I thought this would be a nice thing to use to express the frustration over mostly White people getting "time to process" things while Black people are left to suffer. Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. <3 Please continue to support the moment here - https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/
