Spider-Man players banned for removing ‘stupid’ Pride flags from game

TWO of the most popular game mod sites, Nexusmods and ModsDB, have released statements banning anti-LGBT content following controversial Spider-Man mods.

One of the most popular games on PlayStation 4, Spider-Man was recently released for PC, making it easier for fans to make changes to the game.

The controversy began when a fan replaced all of the Pride flags in the game with America’s star-studded banner.

Spider-Man Remastered is set in New York and has a number of American flags attached to buildings around the city.

Among them are a couple of rainbow-colored Pride flags.

One player released a mod to replace the flags they called “stupid Pride Flags” with more American flags.

Also, if other players downloaded this mod, they could edit their game so that there are no rainbow flags.

Nexusmods, the largest game editing mods website, was the first to remove the mod and ban the user who created it.

in one expressionthe site said: “The fact that the user had to make a sock puppet [a new account] Like a coward uploading the mod showed their intention to troll.

“They knew it wouldn’t be allowed.

“In relation to replacing pride flags in this game or any other game, our policy is: we are for inclusivity, we are for diversity.

“If we believe someone is uploading a mod to our site with the intention of being consciously opposed to inclusivity and/or diversity, we will take action.”

The statement went on to inform users that if they couldn’t accept the site’s pro-LGBT stance, they should “delete their account and move on.”

Another major modding website, ModDB, followed suit and deleted the mod and its creator.

It then granted the expression: “ModDB is an inclusive environment for all and we do not allow targeting of marginalized groups.

“Our content moderation is largely automated, but when detected we have a zero-tolerance policy for this type of content.”
