EDITORIAL: Addressing inadequacies and inaccuracies in our ‘Hogwarts Legacy’ reviewThe Daily Lobo Editorial Board | February 26
We, at the Daily Lobo, recently published a review of “Hogwarts Legacy,” the controversial new video game set in the Harry Potter universe. In the process of editing the review, we failed to address the anti-Semitic tropes included in the game’s storyline, which treats the goblins like second-class citizens, according to Forbes. Along with this, we did not properly address the arguments and goals put forward by members and allies of the queer and transgender community who boycotted the game. The game's storyline features goblins as the primary villain. These “goblins” stem from anti-Semitic stereotypes, a commonly-held criticism of the original book series as well.
