Video game company fires employee because she follows conservative Twitter accounts | Daily Mail Online
Quote:

A woman fired from a video game company for following conservative accounts on Twitter believes a trans activist complained about her because she voiced excitement over a new Harry Potter game.

Kara Lynne was 'terminated' by Limited Run Games hours after activist Jessica Blank, a trans woman, who uses the pseudonym Purple Tinker, publicly accused Lynne of being 'a transphobe who follows a veritable who's who of right-wing transphobic creeps'.

Blank shared screenshots of accounts followed by Lynne and said she would stop shopping with Limited Run games until Lynne, who was the company's community manager, was fired.

Quote:

Lynne believes the complaint was triggered because she tweeted her excitement about the release of a new Harry Potter-themed video game, which some people have threatened to boycott because of JK Rowling's views about trans issues.

Blank tweeted Limited Run Games on January 6 complaining that Lynne's 'transphobic follows' included Libs of TikTok, which shares videos made by liberal social media users, YouTuber Blaire White and right-wing commentator Ian Miles Cheung.



Quote:

Lynne released a statement on Sunday which said she was fired in a call on January 6, the same day Blank tweeted her complaints.

Lynne said: 'In that call, I will say that there were a lot of emotions. I could tell they didn't want to do what they were doing and even said they didn't want to. They were being pressured from elsewhere.

'From what I was told there were no other options presented. But they are providing me with a decent severance and letting me keep my health insurance for a couple more months.

'I had never been written up or reprimanded. I had never abused my power or personal opinions on the various social channels. I even refrained from commenting or interacting with any political content or controversial topics on my personal social media accounts.

'This one isolated incident was apparently all it took. At least that is what I have been led to believe. If there was another reason, I was not informed.
NEVER give into the left, especially these freaks, because it only emboldens them.

So this person didnt even work there? It was some random person on twitter dug in and screen capped some of the people that this person followed on twitter and that was enough to get her fired?

These people need to be told to ef off.

I doubt that individual has ever bought any of their games. Any normal person that does should stop.

Limited run is a fraudulent company. Hopefully they crumble under a mountain of lawsuits

Its pathetic all the whining the leftists are doing over this new Potter game. Rowling isn't even involved in the game and the game itself doesn't have ANYTHING to do with trans life at all - yet everywhere you see comments about Rowling's stance (taken from her comments over the years) and their **** just keeps rolling downhill from there. Complete lunacy to have to make everything about them.

Edit to clarify: The game in question isn't even developed by the company in question here....making it even more silly/woke.

Gamers have been canceling orders and demanding refunds since this came out. LRG was originally denying all requests but I think they started giving refunds after that piece of news hit the internet.

And look at the ceo of LRG, he's a flaming leftist

I hope she can get another job. I imagine a lot of tech companies wouldn't want to take on that risk.

I never got into Harry Potter but a ton of people love it. If there is something that people love, the left will ruin it. They are just miserable people.

Taking on the risk of someone who follows right wing twitter accounts? That's practically riverboat gambling.

Her responses were all super mature, too. Basically said that yeah it sucks that this happened, and that she wishes the person complaining would've spoken to her directly instead of complaining on social media. Also said she doesn't have issues with LGBT community, it only makes her mad when children are at risk.

She'll get picked up by a better company quick.

New phrase, this isn't wrong-think, it's wrong-following. I really wish she would sue for a whole bunch of money. Any company that folds like this to the mob should be driven out of business.

They aren't a real video game company. They take digital-only games someone else made and release a limited batch of them on physical media.

I have read all the books because frankly, they are great books and Rowling can world build like few others in literary history (Maybe GRRM or Tolkien). My wife is a middle school librarian and HP books and such are still the rage with that age bracket (and the last book was released almost 16 years ago).

I've come to the conclusion that Rowling's stance on trans issues (which is hardly offensive or remotely controversial to reasonable people) was simply the inroad the far left found to tear down this franchise. If you read the books and/or watch the movies there is some very simple and wonderful messaging clearly on display. History and traditions matter. Loyalty and sacrifice matter. Family is everything.

No wonder leftists hate it.
