A Canadian video game developer has ended his own life after being accused of harassment and abuse by a feminist game developer well known for her involvement in 2014’s GamerGate controversy.
Zoe Quinn accused Alec Holowka of “harassment and abuse” within the context of a relationship they had several years ago. The indie game developer- well known for becoming a target of the Gamergate controversy for her participation in alleged corruption within the video game industry- accused Holowka of behaving in an abusive manner towards her.
The behavior Quinn accused Holowka of is a far stone’s throw from what real abusive individuals have been accused of. She describes instances of the ‘Night in the Woods’ developer yelling at her and locking her outside of their apartment. Probably not angelic behavior, but definitely not comparable to genuine sexual abuse and workplace harassment.
Holowka was betrayed by his employer in the wake of Quinn’s accusations, having been fired from Infinite Fall as soon as Quinn accused him of vaguely inappropriate behavior. The company’s executive producer, Scott Benson, didn’t hesitate to throw Holowka under the bus within days of Quinn’s accusations.
Zoe Quinn is well-known by many who follow the video game industry for alleged corrupt practices to secure favorable reviews for a ‘game’ she developed. A massive, wide-ranging online controversy that took on the title ‘GamerGate’ occurred in 2014 when it was alleged she slept with prominent video game reviewers in order to obtain favorable press for “Depression Quest.”
It appears the game developer believed he had nothing to live for after being rendered an abusive deviant without a moment’s hesitation, on the grounds of charges that appear to be highly exaggerated and dubious.
Brooklyn Lawyers Arrested, Charged With Molotov Cocktail Attacks on Police Vehicles
Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman have been charged.
Two lawyers, one of whom is employed by a prestigious New York law firm, were arrested on Friday night for constructing molotov cocktails and throwing them at police vehicles during the race riots that have rocked the nation.
Colinford Mattis, 32, and Urooj Rahman, 31, were arrested and charged Sunday morning. Authorities allege that Rahman threw multiple molotov cocktail devices from the back of a car that Mattis was driving. Materials used in the construction of the crude incendiary devices was found in the car.
Rahman had been caught lobbing a device at an unoccupied NYPD vehicle in Fort Greene. NYPD surveillance camera footage later enabled the authorities to apprehend the criminal suspects.
Mattis had been an employee of a large corporate law firm called Pryor Cashman. His biography on the law firm’s website was removed by Sunday afternoon, indicating that the company had severed its connection with the 2016 NYU Law and Princeton graduate. Rahman is a 2019 Fordham law graduate.
Mattis is also a member of New York City’s Community Board 5, a municipal council that covers East New York and Starrett City. Members of the board expressed shock that the white collar professional would engage in such acts of terroristic violence.
The two attorneys are scheduled for an initial court appearance on Monday in the Eastern District of New York. It appears that a significant portion of the violence of the riots is being carried out by nominally well-educated and middle-class urban professionals.
