Booze, sexual remarks, and a giant portrait of Cosby are all at the center of Activision lawsuit
I mean you can adore someone's art/movies etc, but still not agree with his actions. although in this case, I can see why this isn't looking good for them.
I hate the major game companies in America but I find this all very hard to believe.
The French aren't doing much better
If it's on Kotaku you know it's fiction.
I don't know why anyone would think this would be ok, let alone in a place of business.
It's clearly just drunken banter, people make Rohypnol jokes all the time. Here in the UK, we're constantly making Jimmy Saville jokes, and he made Cosby look like a saint in comparison. Proper 1st world offended problems again. They should try and work in China, and see how far a 'Winnie the Pooh' suite gets you.
What kinda logic is that its like you tell someone "i fell and broke my foot" and they respond "ah... you're fine the other guy fell and broke his neck ... just walk it off"
i think in this case, they fell and chipped a nail.
Are you on Activision’s defense team?
but... why is cosby an issue... wasn't he just been released with no convictions?
Technicality lol. Doesn’t mean he didn’t do it. Jokes are jokes though and comedy is dead in America. Deemed offensive. It seems the incoming devs don’t want booze and a hippy party google atmosphere. They want to be isolated in their cubicle like the rest and monitored 24/7.
No mate, Cosby basically used legal technicalities to walk. By all standards and true history, he is a proven rapist who drugged his victims. The issue is, the prosecution made a deal with the devil where during a civil case Cosby agreed to make sworn confessions of what he did but in exchange for that evidence to never be used in a criminal case. Strangely this never got brought up during his trial. And now this came to light, his trial is now essentially turned into a mistrial and he got to walk. That evidence was key to his conviction and it seems like there isn't anything else that's strong enough to put him in jail. So basically, he's now a free man most likely till the day he dies. Bill Cosby is as guilty as OJ Simpson but because of smart lawyers and legal technicalities both got to walk. A miscarriage of justice for sure. Not great optics for the American judicial system.
Cosby raped more women than Genghis Khan. OK maybe that's an exaggeration, but he probably is the biggest rapist in US history.
Why not use Harvey Weinstein as an example? Or Jeffrey Epstein... Or Roman Polansky...
