I saw a video about this yesterday. Really glad they got fired. Her in particular, she is just an awful human being, she celebrated John "TotalBiscuit" Bane's passing. 

Didn't TB do some bad things?

Wikipedia says: "Bain became involved in the Gamergate controversy after discovering that a YouTube vlogger had received a DMCA notice for a video in which Zoë Quinn was discussed, arguing that removing the video would cause another instance of the Streisand effect. He was subsequently criticized on Twitter. Bain subsequently discussed the ethical and professional concerns relevant to the video games press, and stated that he believed that many of the ethical concerns raised during the controversy were valid or deserved to be addressed. He stated that the harassment associated with Gamergate was the result of lone actors who wanted to provoke conflict among the people involved in the controversy."

 

BTW, OP and the cited Verge-article fail to provide me context, the thread that started it and the criticism. They only show the escalation. Can someone provide me with a link please?

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.

Well, it is a dick thing to be happy about someones death. Osama bin Laden deserved jail, not death. Wishing death to someone or celebrating a death of someone is uncivilized hate. You don't have to mourn the death of every dick, but you just could keep your mouth shut. Because everyone has someone who loves him/her. And these people will be devastated by their death and shitting over their feelings is undeserved.

What you see is pretty much the whole context she's deleted prior tweets and just tried to bring up unrelated incidents and sexism to defend her actions, read the tweets in the image in the OP as she posted a tweet about story telling in development and the streamer's reply as she's retweeted to attack him is shown, she literally went into a rage over nothing the was no insult or hostility from the streamer.

I'm posting my thoughts online for everyone to see, on a place that easily allows for people to reply and share their thoughts, where its actually the purpose. How dare you fucking reply to me.

What an asshat. I don't agree with firing her and the idiot who defended her "she didn't ask for his feedback", dude it's a public social media post, the essence of that is other people replying. But it does feel that for her, this was the straw that broke the camels back, seriously celebrating the death of a YouTube personality? That's just fucked up. And maybe the company had enough of her antics.

Good day, there. I'm here to invade your safe space on this public forum by replying to something you wrote in a polite and respectful manner. I hope you have a nice day.

The verge article is one sided. It's where she went after being fired to try and raise an even bigger shit storm she naively thinks will go her way. Her friends sure tried to pass only her viewpoint. Some are saying she was harassed by the most polite guy you have seen on twitter (wich was a huge fan of her). It's disgusting.

Anyways, this video will give you all the story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aooZ_jKPLv0

What? Are you seriously  saying Bin Laden deserves to live? Dude deserved to die in the worst way imaginable. He was a horrible human.

And still a human. That's why he deserved to live and rot in jail. Basically the idea that some humans don't deserve to live is what made Bin Laden a horrible human.

Bin Laden doesn't deserve to be called human. He's just trash piece of shit.
