One Angry Gamer "Traitors of America" List is a list of companies, media outlets and individuals that have shown public support for the Black Lives Matter movement and the 2020 George Floyd Protests. Many online mocked the list and some who were listed stated that they were pleased with their inclusion.
On May 31st, 2020, One Angry Gamer published a list entitled "Traitors of America." They wrote:
A number of individuals, companies, outlets, and media institutions have stepped forward to announce that they support the groups enabling riots, violence, vandalism, theft, assault, and murder taking place at the hands of vandals and thugs across the United States of America. Anyone looking to find out which companies, brands, and content creators have betrayed the trust of the American people by aligning with groups that support the deconstruction of Western values, this list will enlighten you as to who the traitors are so you can stay informed.
[Note:] Some of the people/brands/companies on this list are not headquartered in America. However, they still cater to and influence the American (consumer) audience, and in light of their influence to help sway the views of American citizens, they have been added to the list.
The list, still updated as of June 4th, comprises of over 400 names and includes such companies, brands, media organizations and individuals as Adult Swim, Disney, Andrew Yang, Funko, Pokémon and more. One notable name listed that was not explicitly dubbed a traitor was Pewdiepie, who was listed under "Probation."
