Kid Dedicated Game of The Year Award to Former US President, Bill Clinton

Fans loved The Game Awards 2022 with special announcements including Street Fighter 6, Final Fantasy 16, Crash Bandicoot, Diablo 4, Horizon Forbidden West DLC, Tekken 8, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty and many more. While the highlight of the event was Elden Ring winning the Game of the Year 2022 Award, it was not long enough after an unknown kid took the eyes off the Game of The Year Award acceptance speech and made The Game Awards 2022 viral on the internet for a reason totally unrelated to the gaming industry. 

Shortly after Elden Ring’s director Hidetaka Miyazaki completed his acceptance speech upon receiving the Game of The Year Award for Elden Ring, an unknown kid standing right behind Miyazaki took the mic and made the following statement moments before the event ended.

Hey Martin, you know real quick I want to thank everybody and say that I think I want to nominate this award to my reformed Orthodox Rabbi Bill Clinton.”

The kid literally dedicated the Game of The Year Award to former US president Bill Clinton. The internet went bonkers, and people were in disbelief at what had just happened; a kid out of nowhere sneaked onto the stage of one of the biggest gaming events, made a statement, and left without elaborating.

People speculated that the kid surpassed the security with Elden Ring staff and made his way to the stage. While the folks at the event took the joke lightheartedly, the internet was on fire with people declaring the kid the ambassador of the right-wing political parties and abusing the platform to spread his anti-semitic views. People on Twitter even said that he is a Groyper and racist. Amid this, The Game Awards and Bill Clinton were trending on Twitter. However, Geoff Keighley was quick to inform the ongoing bandwagon of memers that the kid had been detained due to the inconvenience he created during the event.
