Game Journalist Jed Whitaker Files Copyright Strike on Video Of Him Saying N*gger
(Last Updated On: February 7, 2017)

Jed Whitaker, a male feminist and journalist that contributes to Destructoid, filed a copyright strike against Heat Street writer Will Hicks for posting up a YouTube video containing clips of him where he uses the “N” word.

The news was spread by Will Hicks himself, who shared the copyright strike image of the video no longer being available on his channel. Kotaku In Action was quick to pick up the news.

This isn’t just empty posturing from the Heat Street writer, though. Ian Miles Cheong, another journalist, managed to re-upload the video to his Twitter account.

And for extra measure, they also included the video in a Heat Street article pointing out Whitaker’s hypocrisy.

Whitaker has been known to be outspoken in favor of what most normal people called “Social Justice Warrior” activism.

Recently Whitaker has been attacking a YouTuber by the name of JonTron, who came out against Social Justice Warriors and their politically correct activism.

The video collage of featuring Whitaker speaking disparagingly of women and using lots of provocative language was not something that he wanted spread around. It came from a live-stream where he was apparently mocking dude-bro culture.

  • Devon

    Even worse than the n-word, this guy definitely seems to have a lot of misogynist tendencies.

  • dirtysteve

    Whitaker is the guy Destructoid use as a faux-outrage sponge.

  • Crackhead Bob

    Honestly, this is the closest he’s ever come to being interesting. It’s a marked improvement from his usual videos. Long live Jedder Pedders.

  • MusouTensei

    So he’s a typical male feminist.

  • Zufield

  • Laytonaster

    Holy fucking shit, that was a solid 122 seconds of pure cringe.

    • Kyle Haddad

      You’re not kidding. I’m usually one to use the term cringe as hyperbole. But holy shit did that actually make me cringe.

  • Klaus Muller

    Free speech. He should be allowed to say whatever he wants.

    • Caio Pontes

      Oh yes. We agree with that. His friends though… not so much.

    • Fear Me I Am Free

      Agreed, but this is to point out his MASSIVE HYPOCRISY.

    • Disqusted

      If only intentional libel and slander were considered crimes.

      • Alistair

        Funny you say about libel and slander because here in uk you could if you work in a press saying untruth hurtful to person they be up against a judge for slander.

        I could consider being called sexist and racist, misogyny
        For having a hobby as “Slander” But we been called worse as the same as terrorists I.S that is slander because we not.

        We could take them to court, if only it wasnt a lot of money.

        In short slander can be cherry picked too what is slander and what isnt slander.

        • We could take them to court, if only it wasnt a lot of money.

          That’s how the leftist-SJW mainstream media is able to get away with murder, because they know the average person is unable to afford the high costs of legal fees.

          There is a class-action lawsuit of course, but you’d have to find others who have suffered in the same way and are willing to take said company to court.

    • Alistair

      Yes freedom of speech and expression he allow to say that.

      But we not equal are well, it is a offence to use a racist abuse saying it to a person. But the massive hypocrisy comes from, professional point of view.

      What if the queen use the term nigger or PM in fact any workplace would make it a dispute at the work place. Will they get fired or whatever. No because they dont in a workplace you got a code to follow.

      If the term is a racist assult then been called a sexist, racist, misogyny is just as bad. Because they attacking my hobby.

      That happens to be video games eg, shooting fictional characters down, in shooters, teach those naughty girls in hell to rise they game by smacking them in ‘Uncensored” criminal girls-1 i even play casual games as F2P on my ipad air 2.

      I play a mix bag of games i even bought the 2 tomb raider and life is strange before i learn more about them.

      I just like to play games, with out been preach to and name calling.

  • giygas

    Another day, another feminist neckbeard scalp.

  • Alistair

    Another caught in the act by these so-called high moral hypocrisy tools.

    They whime and preach about gamers of being racists among other things because our hobby is not fishing, watching Tv programs all day that too could consider a mental disorder, anything basic that link to video games is the new evil, well not so new as it been going on over 5 years now.

    Now here a SJW use that racist tone too, in a media “We better hush this up” Anybody else would get the book throw at them.

    Another point i noted, there is a difference from telling you in your face of being one or able to describe what word was said with-out using N-Word or n*gger has freedom of speech & Expression shrink so much?

    • Disqusted

      I think they whine and preach about our hobbies because that is their only hobby. They believe they’re the best at everything, so there’s no room for improvement. In reality, they are so pathetic, that criticizing us is the only way they can make themselves feel better, because they can’t seem to achieve anything otherwise.

      Their “diversity” agenda is little more than an excuse to control content creators, get them to change their work, and then feel accomplishment as if the SJWs made it themselves. If the content creators don’t comply, all they need to do is call them racist/sexist and watch their career tank. Not that they care. No losses, no responsibilities, but so much control.

  • Disqusted

    Haha. Good job, Cheong. So glad he woke up. I’m surprised that asshole Jed is still with Destructoid. Actually, I guess I shouldn’t be.

  • Y’know, you don’t really need to say “the n-word” in place of nigger. We know what you mean by it, and it’s not like it can be interpreted as you using it in a racially charged manner.

    • Good point.

    • Caio Pontes

      There are Black People, and then there are Niggers. They are separate and independent from the color of their skin. At least that’s how I use the word.
