Even Team Rocket isn’t this evil!
In what’s easily the most esoteric controversy we’ve ever encountered… habitual bigots the Westboro Baptist Church found themselves in a bit of an Internet war with gaymers over the weekend, and we’re still confused by the whole ordeal.
It all started when Pok├â┬⌐mon Go users noticed that Nintendo had trolled the hateful religious organization by placing a virtual gym at its location on Wednesday.
Basically, this means the WBC is one of the select areas where players can go (IRL) to battle their Pok├â┬⌐mon against each other (virtually)… and one person already has the gym locked down:
A Clefairy named LoveIsLove:
Unfortunately, the Kansas-based church hates anything even slightly LGBT-friendly, so they didn’t find the gameplay to be as clever as we did.
In fact, they decided to enlist another pink blob to push their propaganda — a cute little Jigglypuff.
The joke’s on them, though… they picked the only Pok├â┬⌐mon gayer than Clefairy to be their spokesperson, complete with an anti-gay jingle (below)!!!
Wow. The WBC really showed how serious they are with that one…
The ball is in your court, gaymers!
