Chris Avellone Responds to Harassment Allegations

A series of tweets from Chris Avellone follows up on harassment allegations against the designer that surfaced almost exactly one year ago. Chris says: "Again, I spent the last year trying to persuade myself these acts were done out of misguided self-righteousness. I tried to correct the record, allow voices to be heard, but I was wrong; these attacks were malicious, and they must be challenged." He points the way to an expanded statement on the situation titled It's Come To This. Here's a bit:
As of this posting, it has been a year since Karissa and Kelly made their claims. Karissa has been heard, Kelly has been heard, and so have the voices of others. The problem is, what Karissa, Kelly, and others have said contain serious falsehoods that not only hurt the individuals involved, but hurt others — including other accusers, harming them as well when they parroted Karissa’s false accusations. I’ll get to that in another post, since it was a symptom of what happened here and it’s damaging for both Karissa and those individuals, but for now, I want to focus on Karissa and Kelly’s falsehoods.

‘Falsehood’ is not a word I use lightly. There are receipts, evidence, and testimony from even Karissa and Kelly’s own “witnesses” that directly contradict all of their stories — and contradict the stories of others who jumped on the bandwagon.
