ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Do you have ANY concept of how racist this is? Especially now?
I was horrified. What is wrong with people.
I’ve always been curious, but especially so with Nintendo stuff - how do you guys get away with selling their characters for profit? Do you have a licensed deal with them after someone makes something like this, and they need to approve it?
Or do you just hope they don’t notice? Nintendo is VERY picky about their characters and uses of them. You guys have sold DC/Marvel/Disney stuff as well. What is the process here?
Racist against raccoons?
Some people are dumb.
But Tom Nook speaks perfectly English. And he’s an animal.
Sometimes I think people use Reddit as their only news source.
Even reading the links the others provided I have no idea how this is racist? I’m sure I’m missing something but I only see an animal with a “my boss suck” shirt. I’d bet I’m not the only one that doesn’t get it.
I didn’t read the whole shirt- I get it now. Whether it’s racist I have no idea. Things seem to keep changing.
How else am I supposed to get news?
I don’t have an account.
‘No coffee, no workee’ is a play on ‘No tickee, no washee,’ which is an old racial stereotype of Chinese immigrants: They all work in laundries and they all speak terrible English.

It’s just a fu@king shirt! Grow up and live! It’s GREAT to be FREE!
So… are people offended by everything now? Even cartoon shirts??
Yes. Sadly people will looks for things that aren’t there and then go and Karen up the internet.
