Default Nintendo employee "terminated"

If there is anything on this planet I hate with passion it's Nintendo and everyone here already knows it. Any news related to that company I instaskip.
But I just couldn't resist to post the link to this article when I saw that title.

Basically an employee got kicked out of Nintendo. They say it's because she was moonlighting on a job not "compatible" with their corporate culture, she says it's not true but she got fired because harassment whatnot.
Dunno which of it is true, I actually tend to believe both is.

To the poor chick I can only suggest: next time, don't go to bed with a devil.
Yea, I know, next thing we'll hear is that she took a job at EA. Some people never learn.

Jaz, considering the employee fired "second job" that comment of yours might be taken the very wrong way…

EA is a customer as well. They want our money.

Ambiguity is wonderful which is why I wrote what I wrote it in the first place. Explaining a joke does ruin it, however. Kind of.

EA is not one of my customers, though. I'm their customer, that's all.

This story is hysterical. News gets out that a female employee was fired by Nintendo. People immediately blame Gamergate, as the narrative is that they "harass women" (false). The media immediately, and I mean within about 5 minutes goes and spouts off that narrative. Like they already had the article ready. People repeat this narrative and make it seem true.

A few hours later, Nintendo releases a statement. It turns out that if there's a corporate policy against moonlighting and you have a second job you might lose the first one. Especially when said second job involves modeling with or without clothes which does not fit with Nintendo's family friendly image, she poses with Nintendo products which associates their brand name with her activities, and despite being a PR representive she continually posts these things on her "professional" account, and also attacks fans that are critical of her and her company's practices.

By her own admission she was warned multiple times about her unprofessional behavior and did not take those warnings seriously.

And this is without even going over her writing this pro paedophilia thesis that makes "Darkest Dungeon - The Story of the Iceberg" look like a Twitter post. Nintendo, I'll remind everyone is primarily marketed at children and concerned parents probably wouldn't want their kids buying something if that's the public face of the company.

If you post stupid shit on social media, your employer might not be happy with that. And if you then shittalk and lie about said employer and try garnering victim bucks (which fails of course) you might just render yourself entirely unemployable, even as a model/porn star.

Yeah, I considered saying something but forgot where the thread was. The funny thing is Nintendo tried being respectful and not mentioning the nature of the second job. Alison went full retard insulting and lying about her former employer, then this comes out. If she wasn't completely unemployable before she definitely is now. Of course all those radical feminists with patreon victim bucks started as porn actresses for some reason…
