Minecraft Creator Markus “Notch” Persson Accused of Being Anti LGBT

The hatred is going strong at the moment


Minecraft has been good to Markus Persson, elevating him and his company Mojang to celebrity status due to the massive popularity of the game. This simple game about mining resources and building things is popular with gamers of all ages, spawning millions of dollars worth of merchandise, countless Youtube videos of the game, and generally being a lot of fun for everyone who plays it.

The games massive popularity eventually caught Microsoft’s attention in 2014, prompting the company to buy Mojang from Persson, allowing him to pursue other endeavors. Unfortunately, one of the way Notch chooses to spend his time is by stirring up trouble on Twitter. With 3.8 million followers, anything the former game creator says is bound to get picked apart (as is the norm on Twitter), so whenever Notch shared his thoughts on Twitters current trending subject #HeterosexualPrideDay he came under fire very quickly. Below is his initial Tweet.


Unfortunately, instead of seeing the heat coming, and laying low, Notch decided to continue to defend his statement for the next several hours with anyone who had something to say about it.









What do you think gamers? Is Notch is the wrong here, or is this a matter of misunderstanding? Let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook! And don’t forget to follow Bonus Level Gaming on Facebook and Tumblr for the latest in gaming news, memes, cosplay and more!

  1. I think this is way out of control. He doesn’t specifically say he’s against the gay community. Actually he says he really doesn’t care either way. In my mind Notch is sitting up in his house, passing time at his computer. Stirring up drama is a selfmade soap opera; a choose-your-own-ending adventure, if you will. After all, Notch is a gamer, in love with the development process. Is he not “developing a game” on Twitter right now? I don’t know his mind but it sure is entertaining to watch.
