Having been sued for gender discrimination, Riot Games caused outrage again by penalizing a female employee for posting bikini photos on personal social networks.
Some time ago, Riot Games once fell into a “crisis” because of its sexist drama at its workplace. This caused the community to talk for a long time before it “sunk”.
But today, the case continues to become the focus of the League of Legends community because there is a new “victim” at Riot Games company. More specifically, Riot Lydia has posted an article criticizing Riot Games’ gender discrimination and has received a lot of support from the community.
“If you’re a woman at Riot and post a swimsuit photo, you could get in trouble with HR. Then you will have to delete them and go to the office, there will be men walking around with bikini T-shirts. There’s even a provision forbidding you to complain about this.” – Riot Lydia talked about the trouble I had.
In fact, it’s very common for girls to post pictures of themselves in bikinis on social networks, so the action of Riot Games punishing a female employee for this has angered many gamers.
“In-game Pool Party Costume = ok; Pool Party outfit in real life = not ok.”
“People complain all the time about Riot Games changing and getting worse, it’s great to see at least some things never change. (still sexist)”
“The least sexist gaming company. (Blizzard’s sexist drama ka khà)”
Previously, Riot Games lost $ 100 million because of the gender discrimination lawsuit, so many gamers predicted that this drama might end in a similar way.
