Alright, this is gonna be a long one. For those of you who don't know, A Gay Guy Plays is a Warframe content creator that focuses his channel around his sexuality. Any and all attempts in the past to criticize him in any way have been classified as "homophobia." In this post, I'm going to pile up some evidence of AGGP displaying himself in an aggressive, demeaning, unwelcoming manner on both Twitch and Youtube.
TL;DR: In this post, I've compiled some pictures and voice clips regarding AGGP, and I've shown how he's violated the Partner Program rules (Figure 3).
Lets start with some pictures to address his claims that all criticism is homophobia.
The Warframe community does not support or tolerate insulting other community members.
I present you this screenshot of a comment on one of AGGP's videos.
Do no rules apply to AGGP?! There are multiple examples of AGGP using ad hominem attacks against stream viewers, including people with differing opinions, new players asking for advice, and anybody he want's to pick a bone with. DE can't continue to ignore AGGP's behaviour, especially when it directly goes against an official DE statement removing another player from the Guides of the Lotus program, which was a program designed for veterans to help newer players out and act as assistants. Figure 2 in and of itself should be enough evidence to have AGGP removed from the partner program, yet he continues to spew insults and hate in the name of DE. What hurts me isn't the fact AGGP insults people, it's that AGGP does it with the full backing and support of DE themselves.
I'm pretty sure I understand why AGGP is still a partner. My personal best guess is that DE is scared if they let go of AGGP, he'll run to the media crying homophobia. Here's something that shows AGGP has violated the criteria for being a Warframe partner.
Contain illegal, racist, sexist, hateful, pornographic or other offensive material.
AGGP spews hate all over his twitch and youtube channel. For examples from his youtube channel, refer to Figure 2. Here's an excerpt from one of his twitch streams. In this clip, he calls a viewer a "little btch*," and has an openly elitist attitude.
This goes in violation of Figure 3, taken directly from the official Partner Program website. Last I checked, calling somebody a "little btch*" counted as hateful, or possibly even sexist, material.
Another possible reason AGGP is still a partner is the rampant nepotism DE uses when making decisions. AGGP has boasted numerous times about personally knowing DE staff members. In fact, Rahetelius made a video called
in which he speaks of the chat moderator program, GotL (Guides of the Lotus) program, and the nepotism that goes on in DE. This would honestly be preferable to DE just choosing to ignore AGGP because he's gay, because at least there would be a reason for keeping him. If the only reason DE is keeping AGGP is because he's gay, they could easily find better representatives of the LGBTQ+ communities who play warframe. There is no reason to keep AGGP simply for his sexuality.
Honestly, I'm just putting it all out there for everybody to see. My flair is literally my IGN, so I'm fully ready to take on the hate and highly probably DE action. I can honestly say at this point, I wouldn't be suprised if a ban shows up on my account soon. DE has stood by and ignored the community on this matter, and I think it seriously needs to be addressed. DE acts like rules don't apply to AGGP, and this post provides the evidence that AGGP is breaking rules, and DE is ignoring it. There's a lot of tension in the community right now regarding AGGP, and I think there is nobody better suited for dealing with this issue than u/Rebulast our community manager and u/DigitalExtremes. If they don't reply, I guess they're just going to continue ignoring this growing problem and keep the status quo of pretending AGGP doesn't represent their studio.
I know this has been a long read, but I think somebody needed to put it all together. We've all seen the loose pieces of evidence against AGGP, but right here, I've put the rules next to the evidence and what we see here is violation of the Partnership Program rules, and possibly even ToS. DE, please realize that AGGP is a partner, and what he says to the community reflects your studio. Thank you.
EDIT: it has been brought to my attention that Rebecca's cat of 15 years recently passed. Please don't spam her or bother her right now, out of common decency.
