Forums - Gaming Discussion - Guild Wars 2 Writer Fired Over being a complete idiot on twitter, Gaming "press" defends her xD

There are two factors in this case though that make users like Yong justified in responding and reacting; one being that the person in question was quite simply in the wrong and tried to start some sort of twitter crusade based on sexism accusations when it was in reality absolutely nothing. The other is that gaming press had already sided with the culprit in this case, something they would do unopposed unless youtubers and other influential figures responded. Videos we're seeing are mostly in response to the fact that gaming press are coming to Price's rescue, when they should be damning her volatile tone against the fanbase for absolutely no reason at all. The ones doing the victim blaming is Price herself and her helpers, in the gaming press.

Other than that, I agree with you completely. The firing of the other dude was more strange to me, he was just being ignorant. I think there might be more to this story than we know right now. If Price and her colleague have behaved like this for some time, and off of twitter, I can easily see why the company would want to let them go. Having idiots on the payroll can cost a company dearly, and this is hardly the first time a company fires someone for being stupid in their own spare time.

That's the thing though Mummel, you have to try justifying what one crowd does over the other, which then allows that crowd to move onto the next big fiasco to "justify" ragging on over and over for their own version of justice.

When one person chooses a side and then you clearly have Yong choosing the other, both sides have to in any way shape or form within this reality, have to justify their own actions before and after their speech/rallying. You've got gaming media behind Price, and Yong and other youtubers behind him, two sides that want to justify outright crippling the other.

We've already had videos that talked about the issue days ago, and now we're seeing people late to said news and reporting on it. We get sites like Dtoid who won't post on old news that other sites recently covered, I don't see why other tubers cannot follow that logic (even if I find it incredibly biased and faulty). It's already a known subject by now, so there isn't really a reason for the same exact message being spoken over and over and over again on youtube. If you feel that it has to, then you have to then admit that conflict is desired, which has so far been proven by both parties involved. Conflict is very much wanted from both sides because they both want to cripple the other and serve what they deem "justice". IF one side didn't want any involvement or conflict then it would have moved on by now, but neither side has and likely won't for weeks now. 

 

As much as I dislike her character for how she spoke out against a dead man who died of cancer, I honestly find both the gaming media and youtubers/streamers to be just as deadly with their followers, both of which neither side should have in terms of power. It's obvious we couldn't cripple EA, but it is easier however to cripple a person's life via social media, doxxing and other such actions that can be taken out against them.

I just hope that Yong keeps to his word and doesn't bother posting yet another video on the subject, otherwise he'll just end up becoming yet another tuber I dislike due to their shift in popularity/power and their desire to just ramble on and on at Pol/GG content.

Of course you did. Speaking the truth is shunned upon over at that den of villainy.

Journalism is running an agenda and definitely needs to be vilified and run down. Feminism has nothing to do with this case. Just some tyrant woman trying to deflect her faults.



Good. I hope they enjoy their termination. I would fire them both too.

OFFICIAL FINAL FANTASY XIV THREAD              ((Part of the Fearsome Keyboard People))

And now PewDiePie has picked up on the incident (he talks about it starting around the 10:25 mark). His general thoughts:

  • He is blocked by Jessica Price on Twitter even though he never interacted with her once. He personally thinks that anyone who blocks people who they never interacted with don't care about reaching conclusions. They just care about playing the victim.
  • He, like most of everyone else, concluded that the situation had nothing to do with Jessica Price being a woman.
  • In attempt to play Devil's Advocate (I think), he argues that Price wouldn't have gotten fired if she was a guy and cites Hideki Kamiya as an example. However, he contradicts himself when he said that Kamiya is a very famous developer whereas Price is a writer since that is more of an argument on merits, not gender.
  • He criticizes Price and Peter Frie's argument that their Twitter accounts are "private", saying "if you tweet out your opinion publicly, people have the right to give their opinions publicly, as well".

So I took to Jason Schreier's latest tweet on the matter and explained how anyone doing what she did would be fired from their job. That a mob isn't needed for a company to decide to fire someone for being stupid like that. Got called a "Gator". Told them to do better. Got told that I don't care about harassment, especially of women. Then they proceeded to tell me that since I didn't ask what a "Gator" was then I obviously know what it means. In other words kids, don't bring up a valid point about her firing because that means you support harassment of women. Also, if you know what the term "Gator" means, then you apparently are one. Though that begs the question... if they know what it means too then aren't they also one?

Couldn't happen to a nicer couple. As they say, "Get woke, go broke."

It really is like Yong Yea said, "If feels less like she's fighting for the cause and more like she's exploiting it." Which is the truth for most people like this. Try to hide behind whatever card they claim to have to treat anyone else like ass. If they don't agree with you and/or make a point you can't argue against, just pull that card out and call them a racist, sexist, or homophobe.

The funny thing is that while she was trying to play the sexism card, yet proved she was a sexist herself. For one, if the person she was talking to was a woman, she wouldn't have reacted that way. And two, she mocked men for expressing their opinion as them have "manfeels," yet later chastised people for not excepting her "experience" of feeling like she had been harassed, or I guess her "womanfeels."

Wow, what a shithole that place has become in such a short time.

I think at that point he was talking about the different arguments he has heard in her favor for not being fired.  He then goes on to refute that argument by saying he is a legend and that he hasn't seen him react that way to someone who was politely discussing with him.

Saw your tweet. Let's see if I get blocked too. I responded to his comment about Hideki Kamiya. I said he would have been fired years ago, if he worked for an American company. However he works for a Japanese company, so it isn't an apt comparison. I didn't even add the fact that Kamiya is one of the three founders of Platinum Games. The Hideki Kamiya comparison is a poor one. Side note: Papa John himself just got pushed out the company for saying derogatory things in an internal company meeting. He's the founder of the company. It's named after him. America is a totally different animal when it comes to these sorts of things. Here if you say something that could hurt the bottom line, you get let go.



Well aftsr that unprovoked attact on the fan, i agree with the company's decision to fire her. Talk about terrible customer relations. I am a bit on the fence about her colleague but considering he was condoning that, im not sorry he got fired too.
