Back to Yee, the story continues...
In the face of severe backlash for his comments, he has started backpedaling on Twitter
"Gamers, I admittedly didnt use best words to SFchron. Meant video game industry has inherent conflict of interest in the gun violence debate" Followed by
"I have a lot of respect for many gamers - many are on my staff and in my family - but the industry has profited at the expense of children."
I am admittedly biased, but it sounds to me like a politician that got caught being honest with his opinions for once (as one of the Twitter comments says "You meant "conflict of interest" but accidentally said "lust for violence"? Woops!") and more than a little like a racist saying "I'm not racist, I have friends who are black".
Yeah, but you could say that about many industries that involve children. Toys, candy, or perhaps children's TV.
