“In investigating a situation, an employee was terminated. Our goal as a company is to continue to foster a positive and safe environment for everyone,” they said.
Although the name of the fired person was not indicated, everything indicates that it is Kara Lynn, who is a community manager for Limited Run Games. Employee who was accused of being “a transphobic following right-wing transphobes” by a nick user Purple Tinker, who posted screenshots of old posts on his Twitter thread and ultimately indicated that she was fired for this situation, quoting the tweet de Limited Run Games.
Dismissal that on the other hand has been rejected by several adherents to the extreme right in the United States, who have even called for a boycott against the video game company. One of them is Christina Pushaw, who served as press secretary for Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who said in a Twitter post that “it’s probably for the best that I don’t work for the woke totalitarians.”
“I can’t imagine having to deal with the pronoun brigade 40+ hours a week. Also, @LimitedRunGames only deserve your scorn, not your money,” Pushaw said.
