Wired – 8 hours ago – It’s hard to believe that the same people who created the joke about the #Gamergate invitation are now attempting to make it into a legitimate joke.
The joke, as reported by Gawker, is an invitation to a “gaming event,” a joke that’s been around for years but has only recently started to be accepted as a legitimate invitation.
Gawker reported that someone from the Gamergate subreddit invited a number of women to attend the “game” and that the invitation went out to women in the “gaming community.”
This is not the first time that the hashtag #Gamergaters has been made into a joke.
Gawker reports that earlier this year, an anonymous user called “#Gamergate” started using the hashtag to joke about an online game called “Halo: Combat Evolved.”
The user called it “the new hashtag for the new generation.”
In the original joke, the original participants are women who say they’re going to play Halo.
The gamer who invites them to play the game says it’s “the newest and most exciting game in the world of gaming.”
This time, the joke was made by a man.
As Gawker reported, the “gamers” who posted the “Gamergate invite” said it was “very much like a joke” and “was created to get women interested in gaming.”
The article claims that the Gamergate “invitation” was posted in the comments section of the Gawker article and that it was made up by someone who is “currently working to become a gaming celebrity.”
A spokesperson for the Gawker site said the article is “totally false and is being taken down immediately.”
In an interview with TechCrunch, the person who posted it, a moderator for the site, said that he “did not say that it is a joke or a joke about Gamergate.”
“I do not think it is,” he said.
“I think it’s a funny, stupid joke.”
It was originally posted in August on the Gamergate-related subreddit r/KotakuInAction.
A Reddit user who was a moderator of r/Gamergate also said that the post was a joke, adding that it “started as a joke when I got a bunch of comments saying ‘why are you inviting all these women to play an Xbox game?'”
A spokesperson told TechCrunch that “there is nothing false or untrue about this post, which was meant to be humorous and was not meant to offend anyone.
We take the reports of such reports very seriously.”
In a post on Reddit, the developer of “Hulk Hogan” has stated that the “Hollywood Reporter” has contacted him and he “has no plans to make any further comments on this subject.”
The spokesperson for Gawker said the company was investigating.
