And before anyone joins Seph on the 'ass in the clouds, head in the ass' brigade, I did read the article and there was some wacky shit going down there.
I firmly believe that rather than just addressing the problem directly with some firings, they are doing this purely for the brownie points from people who won't even play their game. More power to em for throwing away money for pyrrhic gains, because we all know that as soon as they step out of line, any fans garnered by them will immediately turn on them. The left eats itself, that is well known by now. Fix your shit and stop pretending to be white knights.
Vritue Signal, the made up act that only sociopaths without empathy believe in because otherwise they would have to face the fact that they are an absolute cunt.
I think the problem is the article that bought this on was a nasty exposé of Riot (What, ethical journalism? We didn't mean that!), and that has damaged their reputation in a way that makes working with other companies and hiring people that are not the typical MOBA meatheads become more difficult. Hence meetings, maybe some outside consultants, more meetings, some considered damage control and a plan of action as seen.
They might not fire anyone, but if they take action and this is not just a 'virtue signal' (Which would only make things worse) I'm sure a everyone will be put on notice. It's like substance abuse in the workplace. Maybe first warning or two you have to take the course or get a bit of unpaid leave, then OUT.
I mean, I get it, I've said some gross inappropriate shit in my time and will continue to do so. But If I do it in a professional setting I can expect to get the ass and I'll have nobody to blame but myself.
