Wait, are they saying Cuphead is racist because it uses an animation style from a more racist time?
You want some cheese with that whine?
yeah, the game about a little man with a cup for a head is the perfect game to tackle racism
so did y'all talk about this in GameJournoPros v 2.0 or did y'all come up with it yourself
It's Kotaku and they think any old cartoons are racist, saved you a click from this awful article
this is..... rly dumb

Cuphead is gonna look himself in the mirror, take a deep breath and tell himself ‘I gotta get more racist’
i can't believe you can now be racist by not actually being racist at all
im starting to think these people just enjoy calling others racist
Apparently, not being racist is racist. ...okay.
