But I bet we all know why that didn't happen, don't we? Especially after all the evidence of the witnesses' lack of credibility and sudden changes of mind you've chosen to ignore. This isn't a case of someone so ashamed she never spoke up. It's a case of someone who completely changed her mind multiple times politically and about Avellone in particular in a way that allowed her to reinterpret events that happened to put them in a certain light.
This. And even the accuser said it wasn't rape, so don't give her questionable crusade more strength by adding fuel to her bullshit. Twitter doesn't need any more fuel for this, it should be settled by the court definitely one way or the other.
I am not saying that stories of abuse shouldn't be listened to and evaluated, but this one is FAR from that, and it makes me sick, especially after watching that exoneration video and seeing how much the accuser flip-flopped on some truly insane shit.
Avellone's a shitty drunk and should answer for that, but some of these claims are full-on "huh?!" Of the reports, Avellone wasn't even in the country for one of them, one was flirting in an elevator (?), and two claims of supposed harassment were debunked by the same two people making the claims (one of which hid after making an attack and the sole witness she claimed was there was contacted and said it never happened).
The accuser Karissa also seemed to be raging about the relationship with her friend, which Avellone apologized for (and shouldn't have, bad breakups happen all the fucking time, Avellone apologizes for everything like a dummy). She also SET HIM UP with this person, which makes zero sense if you think someone is a predator.
What makes me especially sick is the fact one of these accusers, the Mass Effect Andromeda writer, went on to be a parasite at Hardsuit Labs and replace Mitsoda. Cancel culture is one thing, using it as a weapon to destroy others and then take their job is a whole new level of backstabbery for the industry. Still, seeing Hardsuit fall apart and her clinging to the wreckage is perfect poetic justice.
Anyway, fuck this Twitter and ResetEra noise. If you want to join the parrots nodding their heads to this, go to ResetEra and fuck off from here.
