More Blizzard Employees Come Forward With Support for Victims and Condemnation of Activision Blizzard's Handling
2021/07/28 at 10:00 AM
We have already reported how
many Blizzard Employees have been resolutely coming forward to make statements condemning Activision Blizzard's official response
discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuit
that the company is facing. More have given us their permission to publish their tweets.
Some are calling out
Fran Towsend's response
specifically - the executive recently put out a statement claiming the lawsuit is "factually incorrect" and "out of context", suggesting harassment cannot be that bad as she's never been harassed in the four months that she's worked there.
Don't forget that the
Activision Blizzard Walkout
starts at 10am PST today.
Marissa Isgreen - Associate Producer
Nikki Crenshaw - UX Researcher
Eric Covington - Associate Quest Designer
Some are simply expressing shock and hurt.
Stella Kim - Game Producer, Overwatch 2
Some also put emphasis on supporting their peers and fellow employees, expressing a determination to see those responsible held to account. Elsbeth Larkin suggests that many devs do not condone Activision Blizzard's handling and are actively fighting back.
Jackie Wiley - Game Designer
Elsbeth Larkin - Tools Software Engineer
We are still compiling statements from employees. If you work at Blizzard and are comfortable with having your tweets republished, you can DM
on Twitter with your permission.
