Activision receives new demand for harassment
For practically years ago, there has been talk of different demands of sexual harassment between different video game companies, and one of the most sounded is that of Blizzard Activision. And while the scandals had already gone a bit unnoticed, it was confirmed that the company that will buy Microsoft has received a new complaint.
As reported by The Daily Mail, a plaintiff identified as Jane Doe presented the accusation to the Superior Court of Los Angeles who claimed that Activision Blizzard is a massive video game company with a Mass problem of sexual harassment. She looks for compensation that was not revealed much and also the dismissal of Bobby Kick.
The lawsuit is against Activision Blizzard and the former employee Miguel Vega , the former DOE manager who was supposedly fired a month after she denounced him to management. Do met Vega in 2009 or 2010 before she worked in the company and the couple formed a virtual friendship in which Doe sent compromising photos of herself. However, this relationship ended in 2011, when Doe met her future husband.
The accusation indicates that Vega helped doe to get a job as an independent contractor in 2016 and then began to work full time in the company in 2020. Vega supposedly groped and tried to kiss Doe, telling him one day you will give up and also belittled it, he insulted and threatened to blackmail her with the photos.
Editor’s note: The question here could be if Microsoft will stay with all this negative part of the company when buying it within the following months. Or maybe, carry out the removal of Kick once the treatment is finished. We will know that later.
