I had this awesome idea for Thresh before while I was at the gym.
Gangsta thresh;
Make all of his chains gold, put golden dollar signs at the ends of his chain dreadlocks, give him big gold chain necklaces. make his clothes a baggy white t-shirt with jeans.
We can call the skin "2 Chainzzz Thresh"

I would feel like a total d0uchebag using this skin on Thresh. It not only promotes the violent nature of gangs but also trolling. Every troll ever would get this skin and act use it as an excuse to act like the punks that they are.

It fits, I'll give you that, but it would create such a huge sh*tstorm.

Everyone but "gangsta" hates the idea of it, don't forget.

Not necessarily. In fact, that's pretty insulting and dare I say racist to associate a style someone has to gangs.

...Racist. Because all gangs are a specific race.

Calling someone racist for not liking gangs is, in and of itself, a racist comment. RACEPTION.

Hence the "dare I say." The reason behind my comment is the style here is associated with gangs who stick with similar people (as gangs do more often than not), so mentioning it normally implies a race based association. Also, to be racist does not mean you have to dislike just one race, so I have no idea what you are talking about honestly. I never said he disliked gangs either.

You also should look up the definition of racism before trying to call someone out on hypocrisy.

If this promotes trolling, then Riot has to get rid of Brolaf, Pool Party Ziggs and Surprise Party Fiddlesticks as well as any other champion skin that can be perceived as mildly funny... This concept is meant to be funny. It's meant to be funny. Try laughing for a change instead of white-knighting...
Furthermore, If you get so incredibly butthurt that something as petty as a character skin creates a proverbial "sh*tstorm" then PVP games probably aren't for you. And if your justification for not creating something because trolls would like it, you're being extremely counter-intuitive. You're letting them win.

TBH I think it would be more the aesthetic rather than how someone behaves. We already have bikers with the vandal series skins, and the fetish skins would raise eyebrows in places... gangsta skins I have no problem with. Its how a character looks, and the diversity won't hurt Riot.

Good idea, btw.
