A mod removing LGBT Pride flags from Curiosity’s Spider-Man on PC has been banned from Nexus Mods in less than 24 hours.
New ‘Mary Jane & Black Cat: Beyond’ Series Fuels Speculation As To Whether MJ And Felicia Hardy Are Now Members Of The LGBTQ+ Community
The now-banned mod was called “Not-Newtonian New York,” created by user “Mike Hawk”— undoubtedly a pseudonym. Equally stated, the modernistic removes LGBT pride flags from buildings in Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man, and replaces them with the US flag. “Tired of Sir Isaac shoving his fancy light evidence in your confront everywhere? This removes them and replaces them with the stars and stripes.”
The “Sir Isaac” in question refers to the modern’s header epitome, showing Sir Isaac Newton experimenting with light and producing a spectrum. An onlooker in the art reads “Dude, end,” while a big cross is over the spectrum itself. In short, the mod avoids depictions of LGBT or Pride.
The modern generated 168 posts past users at the time it was archived — though the primary page archive shows 211 — the aforementioned twenty-four hours information technology was uploaded to Nexus Mods. Nigh feature scorn and disgust at the modern and those who showed approval for the modernistic peradventure did so in jest; genuine support cannot be ruled out, though.
It had 353 unique downloads as of its last archive and a full of 31 endorsements. In calorie-free of the effect, users on several subreddits accept too claimed to be sharing the modernistic through other file-hosting websites.
Speaking to We Got This Covered, Nexus Mods stated they had taken down the mod; banning the user and their alternative business relationship for good measure. A spokesperson told the outlet that both the user and their mod are “no longer welcome on Nexus.” The Gamer adds the mod was available on the website for less than 24 hours.

In 2020, ahead of the The states presidential election, Nexus Mods appear they would “invoke an outright ban on mods relating to sociopolitical issues in the United States,” citing that “a spate of provocative and troll mods being uploaded based effectually current sociopolitical issues in the United States” featuring low quality mods expressing “polarising views.”
“A small merely song contingent of our users are seemingly not intelligent or grown up enough to exist able to debate the issues without resorting to name calling and baseless accusations without proof (indicative of the wider issues plaguing our world at this time)” resulted in Nexus mods deciding to “wipe our hands clean of this mess.”
In earlier news, Insomniac Games did not react well to Head of PlayStation Jim Ryan telling staff to “respect differences of stance,” and that PlayStation and its community are “multi-faceted and diverse, holding many different points of view.”
Forth with a a $50,000 donation to the Women’s Reproductive Rights Assistance Project (WRRAP), Insomiac Games sent a “nearly-60 folio” document filled with employees’ problems to PlayStation leadership and Ryan.
“In that location would be material repercussions for us as a wholly owned subsidiary. Among other things, any progress that we might brand in helping change [Sony Interactive Entertainment’s] approach would be stopped dead in its tracks,” Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price reportedly stated.
“Nosotros’d also probably be severely restricted from doing important public-facing work in the future,” Price decried. It is worth pointing out that Insomniac Games included a Black Lives Matter mural in Spider-Man: Miles Morales as a side-quest reward; one that SIE did not deem necessary to remove at the time.
