Just a week ago we reported on a situation where Rooster Teeth came under fire, the production team even receiving death threats – the whole nine yards; for killing off the character Clover in the show RWBY.
Rabid, RWBY, Fanatics on Twitter then accused Rooster Teeth of queer baiting ( you can click this text for that report, if you missed it ) despite Rooster Teeth doing no such thing.
The character that was killed off wasn’t even LGBT and the alleged partner, Qrow, isn’t either. To take it even further, the characters refer to themselves as friends but again more information in the prior report.
Well, RoosterTeeth is coming under fire by this group again, a week later. Now because they announced new merch featuring Qrow and Clover pins and because they’re selling a pint glass with Qrow’s emblem.
It seems people are outraged both about the pins and also the pint glass since Qrow is a recovering alcoholic.
If you think it’s silly to be throw a hissy fit over merchandise, we would be inclined to agree.
