SJWs Deem 'Dirty Chinese Restaurant' Video Game 'Offensive' and 'Demeaning'
A Toronto-area company's upcoming video game called "Dirty Chinese Restaurant" is being denounced as racist, but the business says its product is meant as satire.
Big-O-Tree Games says the game -- in which players chase cats and dogs with a cleaver, scavenge for ingredients and dodge immigration officials -- "in no way is meant to be an accurate representation of Chinese culture."
The Markham, Ont., company says the game is coming out soon for Apple and Android devices but it has yet toannounce a release date.
A New York congresswoman this week urged all platforms not to carry the game or any other that "glorifies in hurting any community."
On Twitter, New York Rep. Grace Meng posted the following.
Even Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne condemned the game.
Big-O-Tree has issued two trailers for the game, which show the protagonist, Wong Fu, dumpster diving, evading tax collectors and sabotaging competitors.
The videos begin with the company's logo and the tagline, "Because being politically correct is so...boring."
Of course, social justice warriors are outraged by the game. Many haven't even caught the pun in the company's name. Every culture, comedian and movie has poked fun in one way or another at the stereotypes of different cultures and groups and we think it is pretty clear when someone is intending to hurt or just have some harmless fun.
While most Chinese people probably have a laugh at this game, the social justice warrior movement sure doesn't. Calls are already being voiced for Apple and Android to reject this game from their platforms.
We'll follow up on this story at a later date.
