I'm frankly more surprised that the Reddit user got that wrong.

I see this mistake everywhere when this stream is covered for some public news outlet

The anime is far too ingrained in the minds of 'murricans

For whatever reason, it is automatically assumed everything done ignorantly is America's fault.

Don't hate america. Hate the world. People are all the same. It doesn't matter where you are.

Not everyone blindly hates a country. I feel bad for all that do.

I'm talking about on the numerous American sites I've seen. There's at least four or five major ones, and BBC is the first UK one I've seen do it

Even the Canadians are guilty


"hate" is too strong a word though. Being able to self-depreciate your own country is a good thing etccc

How many UK sites do you even use on a regular base? Some of them are pretty notorious for getting stuff like this wrong:

This.

Every country is equally guilty of getting facts wrong.

People just like to exaggerate America's role in it because of little brother complexes that most countries still have (for whatever reason).
