Aftermath of the looting

During the Kenosha riots following the shooting of Jacob Blake, rioters broke into and looted many businesses and committed acts of arson. One business was the gravity Gaming Lounge that was still struggling due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The owners estimated that it would cost $20,000 for repairing the doors windows and interior damage, $20,000 for their operating costs including 8 Xbox One S consoles, 8 PS4 Pro consoles other items including display cases and miniature fridges and monitors, as well as an additional $10,000 for their game collection including two Nintendo Switches. In other words, the cost of the destruction added up to nearly $50,000.

The owners tearfully announced they would be shutting down their business as they refused a GoFundMe as others were struggling due to the pandemic. Jeremy Hambly, better known as TheQuartering set up a GoFundMe himself with a goal of at least $40,000 to help out Gravity Gaming Lounge and in a few days, met the goal pretty quickly raising as of this writing $55,799 to help get the store back on its feet. According to Jeremy, he's got in touch with the owners and said they'd be reopening.
