It doesn’t matter if you create something as successful as Minecraft; if you have the wrong opinions, people will attack you even if they enjoy it. Likewise, it doesn’t matter if you created America; you’ll still be attacked for having the wrong opinions even by the people that are desperate to come to your country.
“Minecraft” creator Marcus “Notch” Persson, who sold the title to Microsoft for $2.5 billion in 2014, won’t be part of 10-year anniversary plans for the game because of his “comments and opinions,” Microsoft tells Variety.
“His comments and opinions do not reflect those of Microsoft or Mojang and are not representative of ‘Minecraft,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Variety.
The spokesperson also noted that Persson hasn’t been involved with “Minecraft” since he sold the studio and rights to the game in 2014.
Persson, once an involved member of the video game development community, has increasingly ostracized himself with his Twitter comments, including transphobic statements and comments about a “heterosexual pride day,” and that “it’s ok to be white.” Persson has about 3.7 million followers on Twitter.
It's ok to be white.

An update to the game last month removed loading screen text on “Minecraft” that referenced Persson. Microsoft didn’t comment about the decision to remove the reference last month.
Notch, as a white man, suffers what the average white man suffers, but unlike the average white man, Notch has billions of dollars. He’s being silenced, he’s being deleted from the history of his creation, he’s being censored. Yes, he’s suffering all of that, but he can do something about it.
He should be doing something about it.
I don’t know if he’s doing something about it. The fact that Mr. Anglin is not properly funded by a billionaire benefactor right now tells me Notch is not doing nearly enough.
What good are all of those millions of dollars if they’re not used to fight for the future of the people? He’s going to lose them if we lose, so he might as well put them to good use now.
You have to fight, Notch.
Having so many millions of dollars and not sending at least one to Mr. Anglin so he can continue to fight for our people is beyond selfish. You have the power to relieve some of his stress, and you haven’t done that yet. What are you waiting for?
What are you even doing with all of that money, Notch?
You could turn yourself into a reverse-George Soros and strategically fund your team. You could have a positive impact on the future of whites. You could change the world for the better.
It’s in your power to do almost anything. You have to will yourself into action.
Don’t let us down.
