I hope y'all realize that the only reason Tiny Tina is in the game is because she's the sister of the lead writer irl, who is a complete douche (no seriously, check his twitter) and had nothing of any worth to his resume beforehand (as well as a degree from some college no one's heard of). Ultimately it's Gearbox's fault, though, because they told him to take the first Borderlands and make it "twice as funny", not noticing the fact that BL1 was never funny to begin with.

I was genuinely curious as to what college could be so obscure that you'd need to jump on an internet forum and start slinging shit about it simply for the fact that someone went to it. It took me longer than I expected it to, but I found it on his linkedin. Arizona State University. Literally the largest university in America.

Slow your rolls, dude.

Human beings are always racist. It's in our nature.

Stop trying to not be racist. You'll inevitably fail.

Losing a job can be catastrophic.

There's so much wrong here I don't know where to start. I say this as someone who didn't like Tiny Tina.

I have no idea who tiny tina is. I know she is in BL 2 but other than that I do not know.

Either way, some dude loosing his job really is not all that hilarious.

So after watching some vids on YouTube, I've come to the conclusion that I talk exactly like Tiny Tina in everyday conversation and I'm white as fuck. Am I more or less racist than I was ten minutes ago?

I was thinking the same thinking the same thing, apart from the "white as fuck" part but yeah. I think the people who think this is racist are probably more racist that this is actually racist.

TT is an over-the-top character in a game full of them. Scooter is an egregious 'hick' stereotype who talks about bathing with his cousin among other backwoods activities. I find her a little irritating, but racist? No. Now, this street lady from Deus Ex: HR is another tale..

Also, to everybody saying that Tiny Tina is the worst video game character ever:

Calling Ocelot one of the worst characters in video games? Nu-uh.

@Humphreys:

In terms of Snake Eater? Uh-huh.
