Borderlands 2 is one of the games that no one expected to be one of the bigger hits of the fall gaming season and turned out to be one of the best-sellers and was beloved by all that played it. That is a good thing. Of course, with popularity and increased-sales also comes the fact that some people out there are going to get offended by some stuff almost no matter what you do and Borderlands 2 is not immune to that. Tiny Tina is a thirteen year-old explosives expert who doesn’t seem to be quite right sometimes and tends to have some mannerisms that some find offensive, go figure.
What are people finding offensive? Use of words that seem typical of a stereotypical African American person like “crunk” and “badonkadonk.” Tiny Tina is of course a caucasian character, but some people are finding this offensive and even racist. Anthony Burch has come out to defend himself in this matter with the basic “I’m not racist” and “don’t you know people who talk like this?” lines of reasoning, which honestly don’t seem that far-fetched. This whole thing is just kind of weird.
