We may have found one of the culprits behind the racist ending in Mortal Kombat 11 for Jax’s Tower Mode. NetherRealm Studios UI artist Daanish Syed publicly renounced anyone who didn’t like Jax’s ending by saying they weren’t fans.
Dyed’s comments were in response to an article from Okayplayer, who criticized people for not liking the Wakanda-inspired ending that NetherRealm gave Jax for his Tower Mode ending. The comment was made on April 23rd, 2019.
Don’t call them fans please

This is part of a counter-narrative from corrupt game journalists attempting to stifle discussion about Jax’s ending in Mortal Kombat 11‘s Tower Mode, where in the non-canon ending he uses Kronika’s sands of time to redo history to finally wipe out slavery in the West (but conveniently doesn’t do jacksquat about Libyans enslaving other blacks), and develops a black utopia that mirrors Wakanda from Black Panther.
Every single gamer out there who has played the Mortal Kombat games since Mortal Kombat 2 knows that this is way out of character for Jackson Briggs since he’s the most patriotic American in the entire Mortal Kombat franchise, and his entire character arc throughout the last 10 Mortal Kombat games had nothing to do with racism. It was all about protecting Earthrealm and keeping his friends and family safe, many of whom were white.
As pointed out by YouTuber Liana Kerzner, Jax’s future basically established a black ethnostate.
But the game journalists aren’t seeing it that way. The idea is to double down and protect the narrative; ensure that anyone who steps out of line is called “racist” for voicing that opinion.
Warner Bros., originally tried to stifle the news with copyright claims on certain videos criticizing Jax’s ending in Mortal Kombat 11 ahead of release, but now that the cat is out of the bag and the game is rightfully getting review bombed, the game journalists are running to the defense. Typically there’s Comicbook.com, an SJW website, defending the ending. There’s also Kotaku, attacking those who didn’t like the ending. And Polygon called it the “best and boldest in the game”.
Many people were warned beforehand that Mortal Kombat 11 had kowtowed to the politically correct police and was baptized in the corruption of Social Justice Warrior politics, but too many Centrists™ wouldn’t listen. Now it’s too late, and one of gaming history’s most politically incorrect franchises has now been converged to peddle the SJW agenda, and NetherRealm Studio’s developers are on board with it.
