Joseph gamer moment.

Steam added the word Jap as a racial slur for the abusive language filter.
Jap is the Afrikaans translation of Yep.
we also say Jap in germany isntead of Ja (yes) sometimes, I have to mod and allow some pretty stupid shit in my chat sometimes.
The one me and friends always laugh about is when someone was writin: Eine große Cola (a large coke) and it got censored out becuase it featured ei**NE** **GRO**ße cola, even though it was not only with a space (yeah I know common wat to circumvent censoring) but also had letters attached before and after (making up two totally different words)
In afrikaans we wouldn't have that problem since we spell Eine as Een. Een Groot Cola.
is the language derived from dutch or something similar? because that really sounds like it :O
G E K O L O N I - i'm sorry
> we also say Jap in germany
well, if anything we say Jep - not Jap - no idea if that is your regional thing
I've heard it said with every vowel there is.
Also a thing in the nordic languages - Japp, Jepp, Jupp, Jöpp all just means "yes", but is usually used to affirm something, e.g;
"Was that our old teacher from school?"
nah we certainly say Jap around in the rhine-land region
R6 Seige made it so that you couldn't say negro in chat internationally, which made some callouts really difficult in some other languages
I remember getting banned during a comp game for typing raccoon
I assume because the chat system just focused on the coon part lmao
I ended up getting a few people kicked from games asking in all chat what that animal rocket is from guardians of the galaxy
Reminds me of GTAV, that game holds a record for the most n words said in any videogame, yet they censored "jap" on a song in the radio.
I'm guessing that that was censored because it was in-universe censorship because it was, y'know, on the radio.
Malaysians also say it as it's shorthand for "sekejap", which means hold on.
Fun fact: There's a snack similar to m&ms called [Nips](https://i.imgur.com/WJryJUy.jpg) as well. It's peanut covered with chocolate and I love it, food colouring galore.
Spanish kid learning colors be like:
As a Spaniard I feel like I would be beat up if I slipped my tongue in america
Depends on who you slip it in to
Breaking news: Every Spanish teacher in the country has been cancelled in a single twitter hashtag with 2 thousand tweets.
Wait until they find out about the word kniga on russian
Tbf、the k is pronounced in this word lol
And my axe!
Why you gotta be using that hard k?
Wait until they hear about weniger in german
Hey libcucks how about you remove the n word from vin*gar? /s
or nikker in danish
Or einiger, in german, again
Hochdruckreiniger, Peiniger, Brandbeschleuniger, Schwachsinniger, Abtrüniger, Alleiniger, Engstirniger, Fadenscheiniger, Geradliniger, nichtsdestoweniger
or straight-up negro that is being used for black people. that's pretty much the official way. calling someone black in Russian is not a good idea, though.
Because it literally means black in many European languages
It's also the official way in brazilian portuguese
In NYC the Russian speaking community has been using chorniy.
In Brazilian Portuguese 'negro' just means black, without negative connotations.
Yeah, it can be used to refer to skin tone, but it's also the same word used in the localization of names like Marvel's Black Cat, DC's Black Lightning, and Yu-Gi-Oh's Red-Eyes Black Dragon.
Negro means black in spanish and you get banned on facebook for writing it
Bruh this is like that time people were angry over 那个 cos it sounded like rasism
And “you” in Korean. Also “this” in Cantonese.
yeah, im korean and "you" is litterly pronounced "ni-ga"
Wait you cant be serious?! There are more languages than AMERICAN?!
Surely not. Next you'll say American isn't even a language and that it's just an English dialect!
American isn't even a language and it's just an English dialect!
DID YOU JUST SAY CIS YOU ANTI-LGBT NAZI
I didn't expect third Reich to show up
it's the power of reddit, it can harness a part of the powers of the other socials, in this case twitter
NOBODY EXPECTS THE ~~SPANISH INQUISITION~~ THIRD REICH!
Indiana Jones does
But it's jojo part 2
When the r/dankmemes shit started coming here I knew it would be inevitable
in bulgarian the word book is "kniga"
It's that yt video with that Chinese song right? It literally just means 'that' in Chinese
No I think it was a college professor getting fired for doing his job and teaching his students a Chinese word that’s used everyday
Yes that actually happened
Yes that was a real controversy that really happened
Whats up my that
My that My that
That that that that that that that, I’m 100% that
It's so weird, https://youtu.be/CYDEVY0gWQ4 i literally was looking for this video today and coincidentally i see this post right after.
I am remembering the dumbass tik tok girl who got pissed over the name of a country "Montenegro".
That country is older than fucking america, what is she bitching about lmao
It’s just brain dead people always looking for something to be upset about.
It's a legit problem that tech companies can barely handle moderation in English and is even worth in other languages. Getting banned because a word in your language sounds like a slur in English is on the lower end of the problems this causes, facebooks lack of moderation helped enable a genocide in Myanmar.
Wait till she finds out about Niger
"***Nigersaurus*** is a genus of rebbachisaurid sauropod dinosaur that lived during the middle Cretaceous period, about 115 to 105 million years ago. It was discovered in the Elrhaz Formation in an area called Gadoufaoua, in the Republic of Niger. Fossils of this dinosaur were first described in 1976, but it was only named ***Nigersaurus taqueti*** in 1999, after further and more complete remains were found and described. The genus name means 'Niger reptile', and the specific name honours the palaeontologist Philippe Taquet, who discovered the first remains."
From [Wikipedia](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigersaurus), the free online encyclopedia.
To be accurate it's 那一個 that makes Westerners misunderstand, because 那個 only makes "Na ge" where 那一個 if spoken quickly makes "neige" which sounds close to n word
Me too. I am from [South East Asia].
Am from [Redacted]
You can pronounce it like Na for clarity, or Ne if you’d prefer. I personally use both.
Winnie the Pooh will get angry.
Yeah cause it's like slangs in English you don't say all the words out. Just like getting turned into gettin. In "那個“ you slip the 一 in the middle
Yes of course but if you do it in Google translate type nei ge it will show 那個. if you slow down "nei ge" you will notice a clear yi being pronounced
I think it’s just a way of speaking like how British people have a British accent when people speak the just add sounds for it to be easier to say
IDK I’m from Taiwan maybe it’s different where you’re from
那一个。(na4 yi1 ge4; that one)
哪一个？(na3 yi1 ge0; which one?)
那个，那个。(na4 ge0, na4 ge0; that one, that one)
拿一个。(na2 yi1 ge4; I'll take one)
Edit: added hanyu pinyin, and explanation.
wtf ive been taught to pronounce 那個 as neige
Nth wrong with that, nage and neige essentially means the same thing in Chinese.
Both means "that" in a mono tone and
means "which?" if u emphasis the na/nei
Say vinegar as fast as you can, and then it turns into a racial slur
How does "this" sound racist
那个 - pronounced as “nèigè”
Its similarity relates it to the n word
They prefer the term “bipocge”.
It’s like Americans trying to get British people to say ‘snicker’ instead of ‘snigger’.
its kinda strange that its proniunced as "na-ge" where i live but still its stupid to cancel a word that mildly resembles a slur
Wait how do you pronounce that?
Noice pfp brother
Joseph has been banned
It’s almost like English isn’t the only language in the world
The British tried really hard to make sure it would've been but ya know.. nitpicking.
If first you don't succeed, try, try again
***n i g e r u c n u***
Good job guys
Good grief someone didn't "Goodbye" here.
Just wait until a Spanish speaking person says the word black. Shits gonna hit the fan.
Happened in rainbow six siege where one of the items was called black mirror and instead of fixing the filter they just changed the name of the item. Fuckin stupid
"sE dIcE uN eSpEjO dE cOlOr!!!1!"
Alright this shows how stupid people are
Just because a word is pronounced/spelled in another language that might mean something racist in english
Doesnt mean they are racist
Reminds me of some white girl who got mad at a chinese dude who said "neige"
Reminds me of when twitter was outraged at a [Filipino boy band for saying 'Negros'](https://twitter.com/sb19official/status/1208376341688549377?lang=en) which was the place in the Philippines that they were performing at
or that one reaction to montenegro, which is a legitimate country and has nothing to do with racism, but everything with the origin of the racist word (the word black in romanic languages)
Oh boy, just wait till they hear about Niger
It's tumblr and not twitter but like tumblr a few years ago is twitter now.
I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.
Honest to God can’t tell when old tumblr posts are trolling or not, there used to be entire accounts dedicated to saying shit like this
Lol SB19 highly based.
I, as a Filipino, really hated how much these dumb Americans be policing us for "using N-word as island name" mate blame the fucking Spanish for naming the island based off of the people's skin tone living there. And it's as if they did not brutally police our country for the first few years of their occupation and were hella racist to us.
Yo, fellow Filipino here! Absolutely hate how alot of Filipinos who are commonly on the internet like to live with a Western mentality even when conversing with fellow countrymen. I had a really stupid argument with a Filipino once where they were offended at word play that used "Negros" in it, even though the joke was told in Filipino and had no derogatory intentions behind.
It's like they'd also absorbed the "White Saviour" mentality. They're always there trying to be offended on behalf of us and others, but when real shit hits the fan, they fucking disappear in the wind. Bonus points if they upbraid for "being helpful" all of the time, always asking for something back immediately.
True helping is when they truly need it (and request for it) and you give it without asking for something in return.
The Spaniards encountered many black people with black kinky hair among the inhabitants, they called the island Negros. Kabilin, a book on provincial history, edited by Merlie Wenceslao and Bobby Villasis, mentions what seemed to be the first known documentary reference to the island of Negros appears in an atlas drawn in 1545 by the renowned Spanish cartographer Alonso de Santa Cruz (c.1490-1567). Santa Cruz’s map bears the legend y de Negros, probably derived from reports of the presence of small black people (negritos) on the island. Thus, a score of years before the Legaspi expedition, the Spaniards already knew the island of Negros by this name. At that time, there were two (2) types of forest dwellers, the black natives called Ata or Agta (Negrito) and the Proto-Malay also known as Bukidnon with dark brown skin.
Negros oriental Province government is the source website
I remember meming googling the 4th island of the philippines back in the day. Similar to the more recent 25th island of greece meme which sadly doesnt work anymore. at least for me
This twitter outrage is just straight up BS, especially since in the Philippines, there's a place called "negros occidental"
Im sorry but "neige" means "snow" in French, and it is completely inappropriate to the current season here, so [says random shit about how it is in appropriate to use a word that sound likes another word in another language because why the fuck not]
It's probably autodetected. I doubt Japanese people would use Japanese if they weren't on Japanese server, and people on that server wouldn't report that.
MBA professor at a Californian University was suspended for saying the Chinese filler word for “that” in his international business lecture. The word sounds similar to the slur we all know but he obviously was not saying it. Ridiculous.
English is the default language of the world, that is all that matters /s
This situation comes off as if like English is the only 'valid' language and other languages and their vocabulary means nothing. So being racist while calling out racism in a way..and I see happen that a Lott on twitter lately. Not that I use Twitter, I just keep hearing such stupid drama and people having cringe takes over anything.
Let me say one simple to people like you
Never ever get close to twitter
Even if you do
Just follow artist and no one else
Because thats what i do
You are doing something good for yourself and for the world
This is the way
In fact id argue people that claim thats racist are kinda racist. In apex i assume its just a badly configured filter tho
No i think the algorithm banned them.
Yeah possibility that
Because "nigero" should've been typed in jp characters like kanji or so to avoid from english filter that detect the n word
Honestly this is pretty sad.
Don't be sad. Here's a [hug!](https://media.giphy.com/media/3M4NpbLCTxBqU/giphy.gif)
N I G E R U N D A Y O
Isn't that being racist to japanese people to ban them for their language
Because it's not racist if the others do it
A similar misunderstanding often happens when English people hear Germans say "Digga"
Wow imagine if they found out that "negro" is literally how we Brazilians call black people and it's not offensive at all, but hey, English is the only language that people should speak right?
Imagine if they heard a lovely couple calling each other "meu nego/minha nega"
reminds me of the time twatter got triggered over "enggak/ngga" which only means no in indonesian/probably malay
Americans are stupid, but it's probably the [Scunthorpe problem](https://youtu.be/CcZdwX4noCE), not some weird political statement.
i love penistone great place
To be fair, Scunthorpe should be censored from the world in general. Fucking awful place.
Japanese guy \*says run\*
Apex Legends filter: ***I'll never forgive the Japanese***
That's racist of twitch
Wow its so surprising that english is not the only language spoken in the world. I mean this is such a big revelation. I thought everyone spoke english because the Americans do. Imagine my surprise😳😳😳.
Fuck language filters. Dont like the words, block the person. Dont make us all suffer for a few racists.
There's languages other than english?
If people are getting mad at the japanese for this, man I have some bad news about Spanish
This is the perfect example of Americans applying American social norms to the whole world and fucking everything up
Wait really? That's the Japanese word that gets people banned? The word for "bitter", ｢苦｣, literally sounds like the n-word.
Just enter this ｢苦っ｣ into Google Translate and see for yourself.
Here in Philippines, if a Filipino here is slightly more tanned, we sometimes called them "negro" which means "black" in Spanish
It’s okay guys, Joseph can say it because he’s friends with Smokey.
I really enjoyed this bit when watching the show, but it's been depressing to see almost every meme about it become "HAHA N WORD"
Joseph cant be racist, he had a black friend in 1939
Alright guys, let's ban everything that sounds similiar to offensive things.
I start. We should ban "rollercoaster" because it sounds a bit like "Holocaust"
in my language Tagalog, negro is a term for a tan/tanned person and a dark skinned person. Commonly used by parents for the sentence "Wag ka pa-negro" (En- Don't get tanned) to avoid sunburns or getting tanned (not to be racist i guess).
Recentlish one of our football team coaches of the national team refered to an opposite team player as
"Negru", which means black. He was susspended, but later reinstalled.
Good think FIFA isnt run by americans.
"A certain English racist slur." They could have just said "n-word." Terrible journalism writing there.
U menya est' kniga
Twitch mods dont take their time to look into things. They just got their eyes on naked girls
lemme say what everyone says that is incredibly obvious to most people, THERE ARE OTHER LANGUAGES THAN ENGLISH YOU ROCK LIVING UNDER A ROCK
The level of stupidity is amazing.
When I joined this sub, I had no idea it was going to be 100% Jojo memes
I am not disappointed
Me being censored becouse I typed my country name
Tbh not surprised. I’ve seen JoJo fans make usage of that similarity as a joke many times.
He worked with a nazi
But at the same time he had a black friend in a time where that wasn't considered normal.
Yeah and even smoky was okay with the great engineering in the world.
Maybe the filters should differ based on what location you're in
That one Romanian soccer ref be like: first time?
Hold on gonna post the bottom half on Ifunny
English isn't the only language
