A new study by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) warned that one in five adults reported being exposed to white supremacist ideologies in online games in 2022, with Jewish gamers experiencing the most harassment.
The ADL Center for Technology & Society called the results of the survey a “startling increase” from the 8 percent who reported exposure to extremism in 2021.
The Hate and Harassment in Online Games survey also found that 15 percent of young people ages 10-17 reported being exposed to discussions of white supremacist ideologies in online games, including popular games such as Call of Duty, Fortnite, Grand Theft Auto, PUBG: Battlegrounds, Valorant and World of Warcraft.
“White supremacists and extremists are pushing their ideas into the mainstream across society, including online games,” said ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt. “We know that what starts online doesn’t always end online. It can have deadly consequences in our communities. Online gaming companies have the ability to better moderate their content, but most have fully abdicated any responsibility to protect users and their communities.”
The study found that adult users also experienced a sharp increase in identity-based harassment, with Jews being the most likely to be targeted (34 percent compared to 22 percent in 2021) along with Latino (31 percent compared to 25 percent in 2021) and Muslim (30 percent compared to 26 percent in 2021) gamers.
The study noted that overall, women experienced the most identity-based harassment at 47 percent, but this number has declined since 2019.

Somebody at ADL got butt-hurt by being on the receiving end of some trash talk while playing Call of Duty online.
And he was playing Call of Duty instead of checking under his bed for White Supremacists, and in his closet. Too much time on his hands.
Oh total BS.
Truth is, 4 in 5 people have been exposed to the BS of BLM every day on TV and in internet ads.
Back in the day, everyone wanted to play Nazi Germany in Squad Leader. Cooler weapons (except American artillery)
Darn that white supremacy.
Congress must pass a law banning white people from online games.
>with Jews being the most likely to be targeted
When you’re a hammer, everything looks like a nail
“The study found that adult users also experienced a sharp increase in identity-based harassment, with Jews being the most likely to be targeted (34 percent compared to 22 percent in 2021) along with Latino (31 percent compared to 25 percent in 2021) and Muslim (30 percent compared to 26 percent in 2021) gamers.
“The study noted that overall, women experienced the most identity-based harassment at 47 percent, but this number has declined since 2019.”
So Jews, Latinos, Muslims and women were targeted. All the victims, theoretically, could have been white as the driven snow. In what sense is this “White Supremacy”? The phrase seems to have devolved to mean “stuff we hate”.
Good luck with that.
Whites get targeted all the time. Does the ADL give two sh**s about that?
Just what is considered “white supremacist ideology?” Some white NPC being a better shot, or faster on the trigger? Too many black hookers in GTA?
“with Jewish gamers experiencing the most harassment”
Most gamers play under silly aliases. So how do these wily white supremacists know who to harass?
What does a Jew look in a video game? EVERYONE picks their Icon.
Everything they don’t like is white supremacy
They can label anything they want as being white supremacist
You white supremacist./s
