Unfortunately, this has led to quite a loss in fidelity. This will be ironed out next time. *Lee accidentally quoted EA’s Andrew Wilson saying “Black Rights Matter” when he actually said “Black Lives Matter.” Slip of the tongue went unnoticed, obviously meant the latter. Wilson’s thoughts on Black Rights still pending. I’m kidding.
