Crystal Dynamics has deemed senior designer Brian Wagoner’s comments on Twitter from 2010 to 2016 offensive. The company chose not to fire the valued employee, but simply removed him from interacting with the Marvel’s Avengers audience .
Here are some of his old posts:
- ” I’m not a racist, I have a color TV at home “;
- “I love my coach. no homo”;
- “I’m not a misogynist, I’m not a prude, I’m not a bigot, I’m not a racist, but I just don’t like the idea of a female version of Thor. I love strong female characters, but not this one ”;
- “I’m tired of hearing accusations of racism when discussing the security of state borders”;
- My Twitter feed is full of leftists trying to foolishly lash out at people from the right wing.”
It is worth noting that Wagoner interacted with the audience of the cooperative action, listening to the fans and acting as the official representative of the development team. Now he can’t do it.
The senior designer himself apologized for his old social media posts, noting that they do not reflect his modern views.
