From everything I've ever been told, when applying for a job, you're supposed to be well informed about the company and its products and able to sell them to its target audience. What you're not supposed to do is insult your core audience of fans by leveling high school insults at them and saying they are unhealthily obsessed with their hobby.
This is the type of ignorant, stereotypical comment I could understand from someone who has never even played a video game before, not someone who is making a living from the medium. Maybe Fischer was simply tired of being asked the question, but to make a comment like that not only shows how unprofessional he is but also how little he realizes the resonance this will have on the community."
