We've seen a lot of gamers upset about a lot of things here in Virtual Legality, from those protesting the very existence of Games-as-a-Service to those protesting the language of terms documents or license agreements from Ubisoft, EA, Twitch, YouTube, and more.
But what we haven't seen before is a community donning the makeup and apparel of the clown to put the spotlight on their issue.
That all changed with Red Dead Redemption Online over these past few days.
It's about time someone utilized clowns...in Virtual Legality.
