Mod site deletes anti-Pride mod for Spider-Man, encourages angry users to delete their accounts

Popular modding site Nexus Mods has banned the user who removed the Pride flags in the PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Mansparking an outcry that the site has actively disengaged from.

The original mod was called “Non-Newtonian New York,” and replaced the in-game Pride flags dotted around New York City with US flags. The mod garnered far more views than it did downloads, but its apparent anti-LGBTQIA + stance naturally drew some controversy before its removal by site moderators.
