Five nights at Freddy’s Creator Scott Cawthon confirmed a report in which he made significant contributions to PACs and Republican candidates, including Devin Nunes, Ben Carson, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump, and said he’s ready to “cancel” and withdraw from the Five Nights community. . If people think it does more harm than good.
Some records of Cawthon’s donations that are publicly available have been shared on Twitter On June 10, it can also be seen in opensecrets.org. He’s Republican in every way except for a $2,500 donation to Democrat Tulsi Gabbard, and he has a long list of individual candidates, he also features We want Buck and the Republican National Senate Committee. Reaction to the tweets has been largely negative, particularly among members of the LGBTQ+ community, which is an important part of the Five Nights fan base.

Scott Cawthon is not “just a Republican.” If you think of thousands of dollars in political donations as “just a Republican,” you’re intentionally ignorant. The direct contributions of those who actively support the suppression of human rights are much more than “being from the other side.”June 10, 2021
Cawthon admitted this disappointment in a post on reddit The day I confirmed the authenticity of the donation reports.
“To say the past few days have been surreal would be an understatement,” he wrote. “J’ai beaucoup débattu de la meilleure façon d’aborder cela, y compris de ne pas l’aborder du tout, mais avec autant de personnes de la communauté LGBT dans la base de fans que j’aime, ce n’est pas Cucumber.
“I’d like to think the last seven years would have given me the benefit of the doubt in the way I treat people, but here I’ve had a tendency on Twitter to be homophobic, threatening people to go my way. My wife is 6 weeks pregnant and spent last night afraid of being said It’s all because I’ve exercised my right and duty, as an American citizen, to vote and support candidates who I believe can best run the country for everyone, and that’s something I won’t apologize for.”
Cawthon said the candidates she backed included “men, women, white, black, Republican, Democrat” and specifically defended her support for the Kimberley Classic (“she thought she really cared. The African American community out there and wanted them out of poverty”) and Tulsi Gabbard, who said that” He would have been a good and fair president ”, although he disagreed with her on specific policies.
He also commented on the most controversial part of the report, his support for then-President Donald Trump.
“I felt he was the best man to run a strong economy and take on America’s enemies abroad, and they are many,” he wrote. “Even if there were candidates who had better things to say directly to the LGBT community and greater promises to make, I thought their positions on other issues would end up doing more harm than good to these communities.”
Cawthon claimed to support creators regardless of their background and said that as a result he has worked with “a very diverse group of people” throughout his career. He said that wouldn’t change, but his approach to other aspects of his life doesn’t change either.
I am a republican. I am a Christian. I am pro-life. I believe in God.” I also believe in equality, science, and logic. Despite what some might say, all of these things can go together. This is not an apology or a promise of change, as it always has been.
“If they cancel me, I will cancel. I don’t do this anymore for money, I do it because I love it. If people think I’m doing more harm than I do now, maybe I’d better cancel them and retire. I’ll take it. I’ve had a fulfilling career. Plus.” Besides, most of the things people can take from you are things that didn’t have much value at first.”
While the immediate reaction on Twitter was largely negative, the response to Cawthon’s post on Reddit was very different. Several posters expressed gratitude for the Five Nights Games and Cawthon’s response to fans, and while there are indications of disappointment, it appears that there is no point in “canceling” it. There are also comparisons to Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson, who was who created him (after being sold to Microsoft for $2.5 billion) across several widely criticized social media posts, he hopes Cawthon will not suffer the same fate.
“It’s like Minecraft without Notch,” one would-be Cawthon censor wrote. “There is an enormous void in society that we cannot fill to this day.”
