The topic was deleted, possibly because someone thought it was a secret 'let's laugh about rape!' topic, which wasn't the idea at all, and TC says she didn't even think about it being connected to rape. The dispute to bring it back was overturned but the mod didn't bring the topic back in fear of it offending others.
About a day later, a photoshopped image with Shulk's head on a corndog surfaced. energyman photoshopped another image to give him his arms and legs. Users including Divine shadow, JorentyIII and Powerclaw1 posted the image all over the board, causing a huge issue for the mods.
