Old Grumpy Gamers on the unrest in US

"Video game parodies of law enforcement didn't prepare us for the reality of police brutality. Fellow gamers, let's take a stand. Wear a mask, donate to the ACLU or the Bail Project, and support the Black Lives Matter movement." #BLM #ACLU #BailProject

Grand Theft Auto and Police Brutality in the US

In this video, we take a break from our usual content of Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) to focus on what’s happening in the US right now. The video includes some graphic scenes, so viewer discretion is advised.

GTA 5 is often seen as a parody of real life, with humorous jabs at the law enforcement system in Los Santos. But even Rockstar Games couldn’t have predicted the current reality in the United States. While we do not condone looting or violence, the actions of some US law enforcement officials, right-wing politicians, pundits, and agitators are deplorable and only serve to fuel the growing outrage and justified dissatisfaction felt by many Americans.

Police brutality and abuse of power is not unique to the US. It’s a global issue that affects many countries, including Australia and the UK, the home countries of this channel’s creator.

Black Lives Matter Movement

As the world watches the 2020 race riots and Black Lives Matter protests occurring in the United States, it’s essential to understand that this is not just a US problem. It’s a global issue that concerns us all. This channel supports the Black Lives Matter movement and urges every GTA YouTuber, big and small, to share their thoughts and statements on what’s unfolding in the US right now.

If you choose to protest, we encourage you to do so peacefully and safely. Remember to wear a protective face covering, as we are still in the midst of a pandemic, and the last thing we need is a second spike in cases due to large gatherings.

Donating to the Fight for Justice

If you are not able to protest but still want to contribute to the ongoing fight for justice, consider donating to organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who work tirelessly to defend the rights of those who can’t defend themselves. Additionally, the Bail Project helps keep the less fortunate out of prison while they await trial. Your support is crucial to making a difference, and every little bit counts.


In conclusion, this video serves as a reminder that games like GTA 5, while entertaining and exciting, should not overshadow the very real and urgent issues facing our society. We must stand up against police brutality, racism, and inequality wherever we see it, and do our part to contribute to a better future. Let’s work together to make a difference and create a more just and equitable world for us all.

Hi and welcome back to the channel my name’s Dan
and i’m an Old Grumpy Gamer. In a break from our usual content
this video is not about gta it’s about what’s going on in the us at the moment
this video also contains some pretty graphic scenes so viewer discretion is
advised we all take gta to be a parody of real
life and often poke fun at los santos uh law
enforcement but i don’t think even rockstar thought
it would become a reality and while i don’t support unlawful
looting or unprovoked riding the actions of some u.s law enforcement and their
associates right-wing politicians pundits and
right-wing agitators is utterly deplorable and will continue to
escalate the growing and wholly justified dissatisfaction
that a lot of americans are feeling right now
sadly this isn’t just a us problem this kind of abuse happens all over the world
including my home countries of australia and the
uk if you’re in the us right now please
know that the rest of the world has taken notice
and while it might mean very little the team at old grumpy gamers supports the
black lives matter movement if you choose to peacefully protest if
you choose to stand up for your rights or for the rights of others
please remember to wear at least a surgical mask or some kind of protective
face covering while you’re outside we don’t know where we are with this
virus and the last thing the us needs right now is a second bump in this
pandemic i’d like to call on my fellow gta
youtubers big and small to each release their own statement or
thoughts on what’s currently unfolding in the us
for everyone else if you’re not able to protest but would still like to
contribute please consider donating to the aclu who
fight for the rights of those who can’t fight for themselves
or the bail project who help keep the less fortunate out of prison
while they are wait trial thank you for listening
