The noose is a reference to the movie “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, which I consider to be the greatest movie of all time. Mcree’s entire design is based on a character from that movie called “Blondie” or “the man with no name”. The noose is a reference to a scam that Blondie and Tuco use whereby Blondie brings him in as an outlaw to get the ransom and then shoots the noose, setting his buddy free. Mince and repeat.

The reason I’m explaining this is because I want everyone to realise that it had nothing to do with suicide/racism/whatever.

It is a movie reference.

Unfortunately, while it might be a movie reference recent politics and police rioting across the US (and the background of said police) make it a bit politically charged for their victims.

Removing it was the right thing to do.

Good. Idk why it was there in the first place.

I disagree. A movie is fiction.

Where on earth did you get that idea? Nooses are quite often used for suicide.

Did McCree hit someone in the head with a badly thrown horseshoe? Is that the lore?

You didn’t read my post. Go back and read it.

I actually understand what the spray was referencing. I get the feeling a lot of people don’t. That’s why I took the time to explain it.

It’s on a cowboy character. That mean’s that it’s an old west gallows noose.

Good for Blizzard, i’d recommend to remove guns too. Right now all overwatch does is promote violence, would be better with pillow fights.

Well, sure it could be a movie reference. It can be more than one thing. I’m asking how you don’t understand the connection between nooses and suicide.

I’ll tell you now, it wasn’t removed because of its connection to a movie.

There is literally nothing connecting it to any specific movie outside of your head.
