Hacker News article Hacker news, the digital art community’s unofficial online publication, has been plagued with problems in recent months.
Last week, it was reported that one of its artists had been removed from the community after posting an image on his Instagram account that appeared to show him with a severed head, a comment that the creator said was meant to mock the meme culture he grew up in.
Today, it’s claimed that the same artist, who goes by the name Daedelus, has also been removed for comments he made on Instagram that were perceived to be racist.
The original incident happened in April when Daedellus posted an image of himself with a head on Instagram, with a caption that read: “I got a head.
It’s a f*cking head.
Just take it.”
His post included a link to a blog post from the popular webcomic creator Mike Krahulik.
“If it’s a joke, then you’re a piece of shit.
If it’s racist, then your a racist,” the author wrote.”
You can take it or leave it,” Daedelleus replied.”
I want to make sure that when I see this picture I don’t see any racism in it.
I didn’t think it was a joke.
I thought it was something serious,” the artist wrote.
A number of commenters on the Instagram post complained that it was not meant to be a joke and that it offended the creator.
“I’ve been in a relationship with someone with a disability for two years and have never seen anything like this,” one person wrote.
“If this image of you is going to be part of my relationship I am not happy about it.”
Another person added: “The only reason this was taken down is because it wasn’t taken down by the owner of the account.”
“I’ve heard from a number of people that their artwork was removed because of the nature of the images that they shared.
I can see how that might have happened,” said the creator, who went on to say that he had contacted the site’s administrators.
“It was only later when I started seeing posts from people who were offended that I saw the need to get this all sorted out.”
Daedellas creator said that the artist had posted an Instagram post in April that read, “I have a head and it is a fucking head”The creator also wrote that he believed the incident to have been caused by someone trying to “f*ck up” his relationship with another person.
“In a relationship, you should always be comfortable with your partner and not expect the other person to know what’s happening.
But in an online environment, I don-t think it is acceptable for you to have someone you are in a close relationship with make comments that are intended to be insulting and hurtful towards another person,” the creator wrote.
Daedelas creator told the New York Times that he is “still grieving” over the situation.
“For a lot of people, this is something that they have experienced in real life.
I’m still grieving, still grieving for them,” he said.
“This has never happened to me, and I donot think it will ever happen to anyone.”
The New York Post also reported that a number people have contacted the New Zealand artist after being made aware of the controversy, with one saying: “It’s not like it’s the first time you have been removed.”
Dedellus is not the only artist who has been removed or has faced backlash for comments that were seen as racist.
In March, the New Yorker published an article about a man who was fired from a job that had him painting portraits of the heads of the Confederate soldiers who fought to liberate the South.
The article also reported on a woman who was given an anonymous phone number by a friend who said he had a “deep hatred” for white people.
The New Yorker article has since been deleted from its Facebook page, while the artist who made the post is now facing criminal charges in New York state.
