After Nintendo terminated a marketing employee, he wrote an accusation article
aimed at the company. The article, part of a media blitz
that incited a strong social media response, claimed that the terminated employee was being harassed, and Nintendo had fired her rather than defending her—accusing Nintendo of caving to “haters” and “violent harassment tactics aimed at women”. Aside from misrepresenting the issue
with a clearly biased position
, the rushed article didn’t originally note that Nintendo had fired the already-controversial employee for moonlighting a second job
, which happened to be overwhelmingly at odds
with Nintendo’s kid-friendly image. While the article was updated
, not only is the update incomplete, but it is not even acknowledged—seemingly phrased so as to suggest the original article was less inaccurate than it actually was.
