Social media “activist” offended by Japanese artist’s “whitewashing”

Depraved westerners that reside on social media for likely inordinate amounts of time have continued to dedicate a portion of their lives to annoying Japanese artists once again.

The latest attack comes from one individual that implied an artist whitewashed Gerudo female “Makeela Riju” from The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Here’s a post from one such user:

A prominent example includes when an artist was attacked for “whitewashing” Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Nessa in their artwork. Many more examples of this have occurred throughout the years, and many Japanese artists were wrongfully forced to apologize.

Thankfully, the nonsense seemed to come from only a single individual, as most other Twitter users mocked this individual’s stupidity:
