Five Nights at Freddy's creator confirms claims he has financially backed Donald Trump

Five Nights at Freddy's creator Scott Cawthon has said he "won't apologise for" funding US Republican candidates, including Donald Trump, but acknowledged that "with so many people from the LGBT community in the fanbase that I love", it was "not an option" to ignore fan backlash about his political beliefs.

While many of the candidates Cawthon backed are conservative and sit within America's right-leaning Republican party, Cawthon insists that "for those who took the time to look", they'd see that the candidates he supported "included men, women, white people, black people, republicans, and democrats".

Directly addressing his community on Reddit, Cawthon also took the time to discuss why he supports Republicans despite their broadly anti-LGBTQIA+ stance, stating "even if there were candidates who had better things to say to the LGBT community directly, and bigger promises to make, I believed that their stances on other issues would have ended up doing much greater harm to those communities than good".
