Wait why Europe and East Asia, what did North America do to not deserve Lucky Chloe, not that I'm complaining, I'm just curious. Confused

This only makes sense if LC is a complete "joke" character that matches her appearance, I would be very annoyed if say it turns out she is one of the better tuned fighters for the release.

ANN is reporting sarcastic tweets as news, now? It was pretty obvious Harada wasn't serious about replacing Lucky Chloe.

After doing some research I'm afraid Lucky Chloe may have been the victim of the on-going Gamergate controversy (which I didn't know was going on until just now). One source said this:

One angry gamer wrote:
It’s hilarious because the #GamerGate folk fighting against corruption and the censorship of their games actually don’t mind Lucky Chloe, but the folks fighting to keep corruption rampant and to censor games are against Chloe. It’s almost like the folk who hate #GamerGate don’t want women in the gaming industry. Who would have thunk it? -

Cause some asshole wanted to be rude, and now you are trying to refuse someone his opinion? Move along.

I hope he's trolling because if not, he's lost his mind and it has to be the worst decision in gaming in 15 or so years.

But why did the producer take neogaf too seriously, neogaf doesn't represent majority of open-minded gamers. Seeing how NeoGaf founder, Tyler Malka is a misogynist himself (other sources: Doomed since 1989, IGN). I would treat neogaf like 2-chan and should not be found credible. Also I read this interesting article from VG24/7 about NeoGAF controversy.

I think he's being facetious while taking a jab at the stereotypical tastes of American gamers.

It sounds like if he's trolling, but maybe not. But he's just responding to the complaints from NeoGaf -- yes, specifically responding to complaints there -- and elsewhere about Chloe:
http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1sj11at

He concludes: http://blogjob.com/oneangrygamer/2014/12/tekken-7-producer-removing-lucky-chloe-from-us-release-following-complaints/

Quote:
“I'm always serious. If you don't need = I don't release them. If you need = I'll release. That's all.”


It's a good a response. It calls out the censorial nature of people who care about social justice.

2ch is pretty reliable. Insiders post there. I would treat NeoGaf just like Kotaku and all the Gawker owned services and most news outlets.
