Role in Gamergate
Within twenty-four hours, Yooka-Laylee was then hit with massive requests for refunds after Playtonic remove JonTron's speaking part from the game.  Playtonic released a statement stating that the cause of this was because of JonTron's personal viewpoints, even stating that they, Playtonic, does not endorse or support his politics. They are a studio that celebrates diversity in all its forms and strives to make games that everyone can enjoy.   
In response, 8chan started up Operation Nuke-a Laylee was made with the goal of getting a refund from Kickstarter and Playtonic, also to point out the company's unprofessional handling of the controversy.
The JonTron Steam group also does curating.
The fans of his reddit community made a Steam curator for him.
