Streaming platform Twitch just suspended this AI "Seinfeld" channel because it went full transphobic ๐Ÿ˜‚
ยท Feb 7, 2023 ยท

Nope, this isn't The Babylon Bee.

There was a Twitch channel that used AI to create brand-new, computer-generated episodes and scenarios for the show Seinfeld.

The show was weird, and didn't make much sense, but it was definitely in the style of Seinfeld. If you have time, here's a 20-minute highlight reel:

Now for the part where things got "transphobic":




Yes, AI Seinfeld was canceled for transphobia. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Instead of chalking that one-up to a flukey thing that can happen when you let the software run wild for weeks on end, Twitch dropped the hammer on the show.

On the series' Discord server, creators tried to explain that the issue arose from switching between AI programs to keep the show running.

One staffer wanted to make it clear โ€” even though no one thought this was the case โ€” that the comments made by the AI-generated character, do not reflect the humans running the show.

Noโ€ฆ seriously.

"I would like to add that none of what was said reflects the devs' (or anyone else on the staff team's) opinions," they wrote, per Vice.

Even AI knows that the woke sacred cows make hilarious joke material.

What a time to be alive!
