Game Grumps has received many requests to make a statement about BLM (I am in support of BLM personally). I'm torn because Game Grumps is a brand, not a person. Would love to hear ya'lls thoughts on this, please let me know.— Arin Hanson, Who Shakes The World (@egoraptor) June 3, 2020

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.
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/
Sorry about that mods! <3
