Could do a snapshot of the kotaku article on archive.org or some such; then no one gets revenue.

This doesn't solve the article being a kotaku production, though.

Some angry racists started a petition against Far Cry 5 demanding they change the villains from white men because "there’s no reason a protectonist nationalist movement would all be one race?"

I don't know this guy, but the fact that this is the most common comment in that thread is pretty telling.

Yeah I don't know why. He seemed so perfectly inoffensive and devoid of character it definitely felt like we never saw his true colors.

Looks like we don't know much more than that he's DMed tons of women in gaming for nude pictures, then gotten them keep silent about it:

This led to a lot of people talking, some in vague ways but others in more direct terms. That Nick had approached several women asking for nudes, sexual things and generally being a creep. He then used his image as a “softboy” and his popularity and connections in the community to keep them silent. Being the first to talk about Nick would mean harassment from fans and skepticism from colleagues.

Good to see Griffin McElroy speaking out against him immediately:




And seeing some reactions from the MBMBAM community:

It's good to see that this is being taken seriously, at least.


Too often with something like this, you'd see everybody closing ranks and insisting that their friend could never have done it, they must be lying for personal gain or something.

There's a lot of good info collated at the NeoGAF thread on the subject, to get started catching up on what's been happening.

I feel like with Polygon and Waypoint both posting great numbers in the last few months the selfishness of his actions are fucking infuriating.

Openly liberal media, even if its just gaming media, is finally picking up as a reaction to Trump and this has the potential to damage. I'm glad they didn't close ranks though, that would have been shameful, I guess I just wish he'd not been a fucking idiot.

Already the gamergate crowd is going nuts about hypocrisy and obviously that was always going to happen if something like this happened but it still pisses me off when I think about it. Dude is 27 too, he's old enough to fucking know better.

He's fired, and he posted a meandering apology on his twitter. I'm not going to link it because it's still kind of weird. But he tries to say it was the fault of suddenly becoming big enough to have fangirls or something. It's really weird.

Basically he said, "I grew up using twitter and the internet to shitpost/creep and then got famous and didn't stop shitpost/creeping." The main problem I had with his 'apology' is the fact that he never admits that maybe creeping on people isn't acceptable.

It's the usual non-apology. Victim-blaming, bragging out the side of his mouth about how famous he is, no acknowledgement of fault at all. Total shitsack garbage.

Maybe someone could put up a list of "Vidja game streamers who aren't assholes.", 'cause I feel like that would be the shorter list at this point.
