Five Nights at Freddy’s Plus removes creator Phisnom following controversies and a rickroll apology.

The Five Nights at Freddy’s Plus character based on streamer Phisnom has been removed from the fan game and its associated Discord following controversies within the community.

Background

Developed under the name ‘Phisnom,’ the player-character of the game was based on the streaming personality of the same name. Following a series of controversies involving a meme and an apology that ended with a rickroll, Phisnom has been removed from the game’s Steam page, though the team behind the project has said that it may continue without him.

The Controversies

The controversies started when Phisnom’s bad attitude while streaming the Ruins DLC for Security Breach led to criticism from fans. Fans were unhappy with Phisnom’s reaction, with one fan receiving death threats after jokingly tweeting about it.

Phisnom responded by jokingly asking for death threats and ending his apology with a rickroll, which may have been the final straw. He has since made a statement on Twitter, but it may be too late as he has been removed from the game’s Steam page and the official Twitter account.

It’s unclear what this means for Five Nights at Freddy’s Plus, as other people have worked on the project and it is made with Scott Cawthon’s license. The future of the game is ultimately up to Scott Cawthon.
