Lindsay Ellis, a well-known YouTuber, announced her retirement on Instagram. According to fans, Ellis was forced to leave Twitter after being hounded to the point of breaking for a previous tweet in which she claimed Raya and The Last Dragon was a rip-off of Avatar: The Last Airbender. In a Twitter tweet, Ellis said goodbye to her fans. She was a novelist who became the focus of a troll festival in March. As her followers put it, her tweets comparing Raya and the Last Dragon to Avatar: The Last Airbender ignited the controversy.
Lindsay Ellis quits from YouTube and Twitter for what reason?
Lindsay Ellis’ cancellation began when she made a comparison of Raya to the popular animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. People began to respond very immediately after she said something, claiming that her tweet suggested that Avatar, an anime show influenced by Eastern traditions, was the inspiration for so many stories with Eastern cultural features.
Lindsay’s detractors also pointed out that Avatar’s authors were white, whereas Raya’s writing team included persons of Asian descent.
“She can see where if we squinted when she was asserting all Asian-inspired goods are the same, especially if you were previously privy to those talks when I had not seen them,” she said in a follow-up tweet.
