The Last of Us 2 has been under a lot of heat recently and Naughty Dog has been doing some serious damage control. This includes disabling comments on YouTube and even DCMA’ing accounts on social media that talk about The Last of Us 2 or even share memes related to the game. Naughty Dog has been sending DMCAs left and right.

Ian Miles Cheong Managing Editor of HumanEvents / Hype Break tweeted that Naughty Dog has had his Twitter account locked because he reported on DMCAs that the company is issuing related to The Last of Us 2 content on the internet. The following is his tweet that you can check out.

Content related to The Last of Us 2 has been removed from his account and he has shared that in a screenshot with his tweet as well. Ian Miles Cheong is not the only person that has faced a DCMA from Naughty Dog related to The Last of Us 2. Other people have reported the same issue and you can check out the Tweets below:

Our very own Sikandar Mehmood got a DCMA on his Twitter account for talking about The Last of Us 2:

It is interesting to see what Naugty Dog is doing. Not only is this a clear violation of freedom of speech but it can also be called censorship. I get that developers and publishers want their games not to be spoiled and that people do post spoilers to troll others but that is not what is going on here.

The Last Of Us Part 2 marketing has not seen a positive response recently Neil Druckman himself went on YouTube to talk about the game and the video got more than 115,000 dislikes. Which is pretty high keeping in mind that at the time the video had a total of 912,000 views and 35,000 likes.
