Earlier this week Kotaku published an investigative piece detailing the bro culture at Riot and its harmful effects. It’s a thoroughly in-depth piece that I recommend every dude reads and takes to heart.
Some people have not taken it to heart. People like (surprise, surprise), Cliff Bleszinski.
Cliffy B (formerly of Epic Games):
Jennifer Scheurle (dev at OPXSpace):
Cliff’s tweets are a reminder that Bro Culture is a thing, that those perpetuating it think its OK, and that we need to actively fight to make the world a better place. Do everyone a favour, smash that like and retweet on Jennifer’s response. Amplify womens’ voices. Fight the power.
Riot Games is a toxic workplace but it isn’t the only bro culture place in the industry. Change starts right here right now.
