BLACK LIVES MATTER

BLACK LIVES MATTER.

To honor the legacy of George Floyd, today, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. ET, we will be shutting down access to our online games, Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online. Following the memorial, we hope you will join us in further honoring the many victims of America's racial injustices by supporting their families, black-owned businesses, those marching on the streets, and coalitions through the various organizations listed here: http://rsg.ms/a401443.

They can seriously get [bleeped] with that sh*t. I wonder if they'll be doing the same for the 11 people that have been killed during the protests (so far) as well. Or maybe their lives won't matter...

Good show, Rockstar. We're all totally sick of it.

 

To all my brothers and sisters out there, right now, we're all part of the same world, whether we're black, white, mixed or anything else, it makes no difference whatsoever! There is no more tolerance for disgusting Hitler-based Arianism on this planet.

Well, Rockstar seem to have flipped their sh*t, and I'm not attacking you personally, man.

 

The USA is the most privileged country on the planet. It has first-world healthcare, education, employment benefits, supermarkets stacked to the rafters with everything imaginable, affordable cars of every variety, it lacks nothing... yet, the population is totally pissed off! How can that happen in the best country in the world? Something is mightily wrong and I can only commend Rockstar for acknowledging it.

No offence to @Quinn_flower, who is absolutely lovely, but perhaps this needs a more mature hand on the rudder.

All she posted was R*'s tweet.

 

The only part I disagree with is 'best country in the world' though. :)

No worries, was more an FYI in case. It is a strong political topic after all, as shown by some responses today to R*'s plan. :)

Your topic was removed because it was made right after the DLC topic was locked and everyone was extremely heated up, we didn't see it going anywhere good, no other reason. :)  We'll leave this one and contain the discussion here unless people start being vile again.

That's f*cking ridiculous. They're doing absolutely nothing for the minorities with dark skin apart from shutting down the servers (which is, well, nothing).

 

Hypocrisy has definitely been on of the main themes with BLM. Companies taking advantage with dollar bills in their mind, Instagram people competing who looks the best not to mention homes and businesses being burnt down. Great job, human kind.

Neither did black lives matter and antifa rioting But that still happened. It’s almost like he died just so people could loot a f*cking Gucci bag. 
 

 

 

 

RIP George Floyd and all the other lives and police lives lost in this mess. You deserve more

Topic posted as a heads up for those wondering why they can't get online or why there are no updates today, that's all.

 

Take care out there, folks.

 

At least in gaming you can be whatever you want. No viruses, no-one knows what you really look like, what color you are, your sexual orientation or anything else.

 

Rockstar acknowledging this is totally cool with me.

Question, after RS gets back online will affect AFK players?  I’m online and it just shows servers not available.

My issue with this move by Rockstar is that it seems more like a corporate move to protect their image on social media than something that is genuine. Much like a lot of the posts from other companies these past few days. Shutting down the virtual world for 2 hours isn't really going to affect the real world in any possible way. I seriously doubt that George Floyd's family is concerned about his legacy and its association with GTA Online. If they really want to do something to make a difference, Rockstar and Take-Two should take some of those millions and millions of dollars they have earned through Shark Card buyers and donate it charities and organizations that legitimately work to help the African-American communities.

I don't get why so many people are so angry. Rockstar has made the right choice, and a brave one too. It's  certainly better than a PR statement of a few dozens words on their Twitter page and that's it.

 

I can understand people disagreeing with the initiative, but it's really saddening to see many people being mad about it. Like children whose mama took their toy away.

Oh, I don’t hate the US at all. Love to visit you guys. It’s just the ‘we are the best in the world at everything’ rhetoric is hilarious, nothing more.

I'm apolitical and R* can F right off with their race baiting B.S. I haven't played in almost a month anyway, lol. 

 

GTAV's story mode probably holds some kind of record for the use of the N-word in a video game. Don't jump on a high horse and act like you're some kind of sjw, now.

Some of these posts are total cringe and a few yikes for good measure as well. Protests and silences are a mark of respect and solidarity for a plethora of issues. Rockstar are joining that cause and total respect to them for doing so. They're doing it in conjunction with the NYC memorial, which is fitting, and I'm almost 100% certain they would have made a financial donation as well because they're always doing that stuff behind the scenes and not advertising it for the masses to comment on.

 

I love GTAForums but we don't half harbour some short minded twats.

Also as I said before, we'll be leaving this up as a place of dialogue, regardless of your opinion, but if it starts getting too bad we will absolutely lock it. 

Then don't say we're censoring you because we're just trying to keep the forum a friendly place, not only to participate, but also to read without wanting to rip your eyes out like a Twitter comments section. There's enough hate on social media, we don't need it on our forums.

 

At least respect the cause if you don't agree with it, don't be vile about it.

 I agree. The message you are seeing is from corporate Take-Two interactive, who can suck my fat finger, but you have to give them the benefit of the doubt.

 

As with their Covid-19 reaction, it didn't fool many, but these are crazy times, man. Walk out the front door without your face mask and you rush back for it so that you're not mobbed as a plague spreader, it's totally nuts, and the Floyd George response could be seen as a release at being cooped up for months on end, but rightly so. People are sick to death at being ordered around by their respective governments and now they're all standing up and saying ENOUGH. Black, white, literally plagued to death, we're going to smash some stuff up.

 

Rockstar are crying out like everyone else.
