Wow, this is scary. And not just Flynn's actions but also the reactions here.
Yes, his behaviour is disgusting, especially that he abused his position as a lesser celebrity. BUT, consider:
- What he did is not illegal. Sure, disgusting, but not illegal. Looking through the stuff on Twitter, he made sure to not perv on girls untill they are 18. (Starting it exactly on their 18th birthday is incredibly creepy though.) Think of it like this: Would you ask your boss to fire a colleague if you obtain proof that they are cheating on their spouse?
- Looking through the stuff, he didn't keep harassing anyone. He stopped when the women told him to stop, and moved on to perv on someone else. He is like the drunk guy in the bar who walks up to every girl to try his luck. Most of the stories posted there are from women who only considered their incident with Flynn from years ago inappropriate once this whole thing exploded.
- Wanting to erase a character because what one of their VA's did is baffling. (Don't forget that english is not the only language the games come out in, and not even the most important one when it comes to the creators.) What does Axel's quest to rescue Subject X has to do with a creepy dude pathetically trying to get laid during his midlife crisis?
I feel like society started going backwards. Twitter is our new place for public stonings by angry mobs. Judging people without hearing both sides, demanding immediate action, going for the blood, the middle ages lives its renaissance in the modern age.
