The Nintendo Switch game "Pokémon Unite" changed the skin for one of its characters and social media went wild with its response.

"The multiplayer online battle arena video game lets players choose a pokémon for a 10-minute team brawl against other users around the world," writes Pride.com. "Machamp, alongside dozens of others, has been a playable character since the game's release last summer but Nintendo just dropped a new skin for the muscle queen that has the gays in a frenzy."

While Nintendo calls the skin "Punk Style Machamp," it looks more like what a leather daddy would wear.

Many commented on Twitter:
