Hit video game Minecraft has removed references to its creator, Markus "Notch" Persson, from its splash screens, users have reported.




In recent weeks, Persson has posted a series of offensive tweets, including one which read "I'd rather be a fascist c*** than have a feminine dick, so gladly!"




Persson has also endorsed QAnon, a bizarre rightwing conspiracy theory that many US political figures are involved a pedophilia ring.




Microsoft, which owns the Minecraft brand, did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.



An update to Minecraft has removed references to its creator, Markus "Notch" Persson, from the hit game's splash screens.
We first saw the news via Kotaku. The alteration is also public in Minecraft's latest "snapshot", a testing version of the game.
The update removes references to Notch from the yellow text that pops on the game's opening screen. That text would display random messages, some of which read "Made by Notch!" or "The Work Of Notch!"
