Here Is a Great Thing

Remember MAGA Jazz? Well, Hasbro finally took care of that. It seems that they removed the offending mark and simply made that space blank.

Personally, I don’t think that the glyph in question should have made it on the figure in the first place. Number one: this is a toy and politics shouldn’t be mixed with toys. Number two: Jazz is an Autobot and I daresay he wouldn’t support the Grand Nagus at all. Number three and probably the most important: this felt more than a little racist. Jazz has been voiced by black actors and slapping a reference to the Grand Nagus on his figure was just wrong.

There are those who aren’t all that happy about this but I am not one of them. It’s about damn time, Hasbro.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
