Animator Scott Cawthon started trending on Twitter on Thursday, June 10, after screenshots indicating that he made plenty of donations to former president Donald Trump and to the Republican party, went viral on the Internet. The source wasn't mentioned fearing threat of doxxing, however, Twitter seems to have dug up its own results.

Scott Braden Cawthon has a huge fan following as the creator of 'Five Nights at Freddy's, for which he provided the voice of Phone Guy. An Internet user shared a screenshot of his public filing and wrote, "Turns out scott cawthon, well-known as the creator of five nights at freddy's and less known as being a christian fundie, maxed out his political donations to republican candidates and PACs in 2020." Adding more screenshots, the person said, "Trump, McConnell, carson, nunes, the (s)hits." Sleuths on the Internet claiming to have hit upon this finding, say the list includes donations made to Trump, Mitch McConnell, Tommy Tubberville, Kevin McCarthy, Ben Carson and Tulsi Gabbard.

The person further said, "Some people might be tripped up by the lone dem on that list, tulsi gabbard, but if you look at her politics the picture becomes clear. she's a crypto-fash who's allied with hindutva militias, pushes anti-trans bills and appeared on PragerU..." and said that "Scott is notch minus the candy wall." The Twitter user further shared a link to Cawthon's public filing.

However, the animator is yet to reply to these findings. 




Reacting to the series of revelations, one person said, "Scott cawthon donated to trump bro i am f*cking heartbroken." While another one said, "Learning that scott cawthon is a republican gives me all the more reason to pirate every five nights at freddys game it's not like its even hard LOL"




One Internet user said, "We are unanimously appalled by the discovery that Scott Cawthon has donated large sums to prominent republican figures. As a diverse team composed largely of LGBT and neurodivergent artists it's difficult to properly express the magnitude of our disappointment." While another one said, "lol people are cancelling scott cawthon bc he’s a republican"



One person questioned, "How are people turning 'People are resonably upset Scott Cawthon donated money to Mitch McConnel and FUCKING TRUMP' into "People are canceling Scott Cawthon for being a republican."?" And one said, "Scott cawthon being republican is literally not surprising to me in the slightest considering he's a christian from texas but damn he really out here donating to these republican candidate losers like they're his OnlyFans idols or something."
