"The Last Of Us Part 2" director gets accused of pushing an agenda

Naughty Dog's director for PlayStation 4's The Last Of Us Part 2 has been accused by gamers of pushing an agenda for retweeting some fan art.

Neil Druckmann, director of Naughty Dog's upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive The Last Of Us Part 2, has been accused by gamers of pushing an "angenda" and politicising the Uncharted series. What caused this uproar? Well, the director had the audacity to retweet fan art of Chloe and Nadine sharing an intimate embrace. 

Druckmann's retweet drew over 200 comments, with most of them being negative and against the idea of Chloe and Nadine being lovers. 

The Last Of Us Part 2 director later responded to the negative tweets by making disgruntled gamers aware that fan art holds about as much canonical merit as fan fiction. 

In all seriousness, the fan art is an incredible piece that shows how talented a lot of gamers are. Fan art such as this should be encouraged rather than dissuaded as it's merely a harmless way of someone showing their fondness for two characters from a particular franchise. It's in no way canonical, and I can personally vouch for wanting to see fan art of Nathan Drake giving Sully a "hand shandy". 

We haven't heard much about The Last Of Us Part 2 since its composer said it is coming "very soon", but an ex-IGN editor has said it is 100% confirmed for 2019
