All Tom did was translate a slur into a slur. Newhalf IS a slur. Due to human error, Tom's translation ended up being more offensive than the original text, but the original text WAS offensive, do not forget that. I give Tom the benefit of the doubt when he says he didn't realize how much more offensive the t-slur was than newhalf. People are criticizing Tom for being defensive. But why would he not be defensive? The outrage mob is at his throat, demonizing him and treating him like trash. I know most of you here don't act like that, but keep in mind what twitter is like. I'm not surprised he's chosen to withdraw himself from the platform.
