This piece is part of a daily “What the Fuck of the Day” series here on Antigone Awakens, where I briefly discuss one thing each day that has me seriously saying, WTF?!?!
WTF WTF WTF
Even my Badass Playlist isn’t enough to calm me down right now. Seriously? On stage, at a major promotional event for Microsoft’s XBox One at E3, someone thought it would be “cool” and “funny” to make a rape joke? REALLY?!?!?
Apparently a convo between a man and woman during the demonstration went like this:
Girl: I can’t even block correctly and you’re too fast.
Guy: Just let it happen. It will be over soon.
[You know, like rape. The audience laughs. Of course. Because rape jokes are always funny. NOT.]
The guy continues to beat the woman in the game.
Guy: Wow, you like this?
Girl: No, I don’t like this.
