Jeremy “Covert Toast” Wang published a long and detailed response after people condemned him for allegedly “problematic” comments he had made in the past.
It was a turbulent day for Toast. After announcing that he is leaving “Among Us” – his main game for the last year – “Toast” is convinced to release a passionate response to accusations of problematic behavior.
The OfflineTV member has been criticized by some on social media for enjoying racist and sexist jokes in the past and calling on others to call him.
And after a “careful and well-written message” from a fan, Toast found it appropriate to respond to these allegations and respond honestly to people̵
The toast responds to accusations of problematic comments
On May 2, Toast published a detailed Twitlonger, which tries to respond to five main allegations made against him. His toast explained the importance of “transparency” and urged people not to attack his friends from OfflineTV and Amigops.
“I’ve always walked the line of ‘sharp’ humor when it comes to my online presence,” he said. “In the last 5 years, I have developed a more sarcastic, frank and satirical personality. There is nothing in what I have done in public that I have tried to hide, or to erase, or to claim ignorance. “
The toast denied accusations of racism related to a joke he made more than two years ago, which he claims was repelled by a website. “Trying to teach me that this is offensive has no weight, because we all knew it was offensive, so it was censored,” he explained.

The toast reminded critics of their own previous experiences with racism, which included being “spit on” and “being called Jackie Chan.” “It obviously doesn’t make me immune to racism,” he explained. “But reading an insulting joke doesn’t make me like that either.
He also responded to criticism for joking during a dictionary game where he drew a girl representing the word “illegal.”
“I don’t support pedophilia (I can’t believe I even have to say it) and I’m honestly surprised that some countries are trying to cancel me for this one,” he added. “I’m sure it’s clear that even with the worst opinion of me, people can recognize that I’m saying pedo = bad.
The toast further criticized the allegations that he advocated rape and the use of “R slur”. In both cases, he described the allegations as unfounded, with no videos or videos to support the allegations.
The toast ended by explaining his intention to “tone up” his jokes in the future. “Going forward, I will try to be a little less nervous,” he said. “But this type of humor is something I grew up with, and I personally think it’s humor.
“If you accept it at face value, without context, without knowing me – I can understand why I could come out as a fanatic. But even if you don’t respect me, at least respect the opinion of the people around me. ”
Toast isn’t the only high-profile content creator to be criticized for past action this month, with MrBeast crew member Carl Jacobs coming out to apologize for his previous association with controversial streamer Ice Poseidon.
In any case, it remains to be seen whether this rebuttal will be strong enough to quell the noise from some sections of Internet users.
