Camen issued a standard "I'm sorry you were offended" apology, and described himself as a boundary-pushing comedian, despite all evidence to the contrary. "Ha ha, this man is wearing a wig and pretending to be a girl" was better executed when it was considered groundbreaking in goddamn 1959. Camen promptly pulled all his videos from YouTube so that wayward viewers wouldn't cut themselves on his razor-sharp edge, but his IMDb sizzle reel is still available if you want to hear a white man employ the worst Asian accent since WWII-era propaganda videos.

There Was A Year-Long Strike That Most People Didn't Even Notice
In October 2016, voice actors began the longest strike in the history of the Actors Guild. And unless Polygon is your home page, you almost certainly didn't notice. Unlike, say, the headline-grabbing writer's strike, no games were delayed, cancelled, or rendered hilariously terrible. Life Is Strange: Before Everyone Gets Murdered simply swapped out Ashly Burch, voice of fan-favorite Chloe, for a non-union actor, and it was barely a bump in the road.
So why were they striking? Well, one actor complained that a four-hour session of "screaming bloody murder" left their throat too raw to perform any other work, and having to provide so many different grunts and growls of aliens getting shot risks vocal chord damage. Voice actors often weren't told what characters they were playing for fear of corporate espionage, which is both confusing and manipulative (you would feel emboldened to ask for more money if you knew you were working on the new Fallout, as opposed to its low-budget porn parody, Balls Out).
