Scott Cawthon, creator of the popular horror video game, “Five Nights at Freddy’s,” refused to bend the knee to the cancel mob Monday after he was attacked for donating to Democrat Representative Tulsi Gabbard and prominent Republicans, including former President Donald Trump.

Video game news site GameRant reported Sunday that fans of the game franchise “are concerned and hurt to find out where the money Cawthon makes from the popular horror series is going.”

Gamers were not even satisfied with his donation to former Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, calling her “transphobic” and “homophobic.”

“I’d like to think that the last seven years would have given me the benefit of the doubt in regards to how I try to treat people, but there I was, trending on twitter for being a homophobe, getting doxed, with people threatening to come to my house,” he wrote. “All this because I exercised my right, and my duty, as an American citizen, to vote for and
