Public shaming is a paper note in Fallout 76, introduced in the Skyline Valley update.


This note is pinned to the wall of a bathroom inside the Slumber Mill Motel, providing some running commentary regarding the nearby "Nothing is real" graffiti.



We are in a wasteland and you have spent your time writing this on a wall. Get a life.
Signed Lewis.
I wish whoever wrote this was not real.
Signed Becky.
Why did people like this survive?
Signed Robert.
I bet you think writing "Nothing Is Real", makes you so deep and interesting. It just makes you look like an idiot to the rest of us.
Signed Tasha.
50 caps for anyone who can find and kill this person.
Signed Laura.
This theory again? Sorry buddy, this is real life. Get over it.
Signed Carol.

Behind the scenes[]

While some players initially interpreted this note as a reference to fan theories about the game world being a simulation in conjunction with the "nothing is real" graffiti, Double Eleven developer George Platten provided context to the note's origin on Discord. According to Platten, a member of the quality assurance team said that the graffiti made no sense after Platten had placed it in the motel's bathroom. Platten implemented the note to give a reason for the graffiti's existence, essentially acting as a self-deprecatory joke from Platten over him adding the graffiti in the first place.[1]
