We know that the Pokémon GO community is very angry. However, there are certain behaviors that are simply unacceptable.
It has been shared today by the director of the app Michael Steranka that a recently created Twitter account has been harassing him. She denounces having received insults and abuse towards him and his family.
Explicitly mentions attacks towards his wife and towards their newborn son. As you can imagine, the community has condemned these attacks and they point out that anger over the latest changes and statements about the app do not justify this.
Here you can see it:
I decided to block an account for the first time today.
I usually pride myself on never blocking anybody, even though some people say some pretty hurtful things about me. I genuinely think it’s important to read contradicting view points and not get trapped in an echo chamber. pic.twitter.com/Xmb2X81Mht
