Preload Hogwarts Legacy: The Game Contraversy
Hence the criticism: for several weeks now, the Hogwarts Legacy has been heavily criticized. The reason is the transphobic statements of the creator of the Harry Potter universe, JK Rowling. Therefore, several streamers called for a boycott of the game.
German Twitch star Gronch also spoke about the Hogwarts Legacy controversy. However, his “I don’t care” statement during a live broadcast drew a lot of criticism on Twitter. The streamer decided in advance to play the game for his subscribers, and in the meantime, start a stream of donations. He wants to donate the money raised to organizations that actively support the queer community.
