TB wasnt a saint and did some dick things. But to laugh at this death and in essence walk all over it, that's unjustified.

Osama Bin Laden did some dick things but when he died it was great and made me happy.

The's a difference between terrorism and telling trolls to F off.

As stated above by myself and others, nothing TB did was worth being happy he was dead. Certainly not publicly showing it. The worst thing he ever did was tell someone to go die of cancer quite a few years ago because they were trolling him. Which he apologized for many times over. He was accused of supporting harassment, and some tried to say he organized it, but that was because he supported people and ideas that went against left-leaning ideals in the gaming industry. Not because he ACTUALLY did any of those things or encouraged them. Osama bin Laden lead an actual terrorist organization that killed thousands of innocent people. Someone like that, yeah. Mock their death. Mocking the death of someone who didn't agree with man-hating garbage? Not so much.

I have quite a few family members that died from cancer and wishing that upon somebody is such a piece of shit thing to do. He probably apologized because he got called out on it. Shitty peoplw like him are better of dead.

I have family members that died of cancer too. I also know what it's like to get so pissed off at someone that you just say something incredibly hurtful. Especially when it was clear that they didn't care about him at all and were just trying to make him angry.

Read that article about him. One shitty thing he said 8 years ago out of pure frustration because of a troll doesn't erase the good that he did and it doesn't make it okay to be glad he's dead or mock his death publicly.

Wasn't trolling since it's against forum rules but I didn't know about his charitable deeds so ge seems less of a shitty person so I'll take back what I said.



It looks like the company wanted her gone anyway and took this as a good enough reason to do it. The tweets are dumb, mean-spirited and pointless but likely not enough to fire someone over.

In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

Some comments in the Eurogamer article about this mentioned that she was a bit of a bitch at conventions too. A few people shared your sentiment. That ArenaNet already wasn't pleased with her and wanted her gone. Pete Fries was unfortunate collateral damage. Though I will say this, if you've been with a company for almost 13 years you should probably know better than to pick that hill to die on for someone who hadn't even been with the company for two years. She was openly insulting not only the community but a YouTube partner as well. Publicly defending her actions means you condoned her language towards their customers and partners. Leave that to the head of a company to decide to do. You stuck your ass in that fire and got burned.
