Subscription pornography video website Brazzers have announced their intentions of sponsorsing players and events within the fighting games community. Joe "LI Joe" Ciaramelli, described as a "fighting game veteran", had made statements saying he wanted to get Brazzers involved with the fighting game community and on his stream yesterday he spoke with Rob Steele, director of special events for Brazzer's, about a future cooperation. Steele announced Brazzers will be sponsoring LI Joe at events and the community at large.

Steele has already received a large amount of positive feedback, concerning the announcement, via his twitter. Feedback has not only been of a positive nature from the community though. Tom Cannon, co-founder of the well-known EVO tournaments, said "To be super clear, there will never be a reference to this particular sponsor at Evo, in any way, shape, or form."

So on one hand Brazzers found support and acceptance from a certain cross-section of the community, even upon simply hinting at their future involvement, and on the other they met resistance from one of the more well known figures.
