The problem is that people want to see a connection where there is none.

Don't try to get emotional because on one hand employees get laid off and on the other the CEO gets a huge bonus. You lack the insight to say if that was a bad move or the right call. Therefore it's incredibly naive to say that Kotick should've taken a pay cut to keep the other branches open. There's no point in keeping them open when they're not useful for the company anymore.

YOU as a consumer wouldn't act differently. Even if you get a pay raise, you wouldn't spend it on stuff that you don't want, only that some store owner doesn't have to close his shop or lay off his cashier.

That's not really the point. The point is, it is incredibly inefficient for the economy (and for Activision) to pay it's ceo 200 million. If you care to read up my arguments, you can read my previous posts in this thread. It has nothing to do (for my arguments) with the morality of the situation even though I could also argue that as well if I wanted...
