Why not? Is there something wrong with having male characters?
And who gets to decide what a bigot is?
Free speech means the ability to state your political opinions without being discriminated, fired or otherwise punished for having them.
This guy is clearly punished for his opinions. The fact that the company had no problem with his tweets when he made them and only took "action" when a bunch of people who do not even play the game got "offended" clearly proves that.
It's deeply troubling that in 21st century North America there are people who not only encourage totalitarian behavior but actively seek it out and applaud it when other engage in it.
It's as Carl Jung said, the more you live in comfort and ease the more you subconsciously wish to be dominated and abused by those around you.
You have a great ability to ignore context that hurts your assumptions.
He worked for a company, he openly abused and mocked that companies potential customers.
I am willing to bet all the money in the world that you would not be saying that if the person fired was a woman or gay or an ethnic minority.
Why would you willingly use assumptions to justify or support a preconceived notion?
You want to make yourself dumber, you want to live inside a fallacy, thats exactly what you need to do for it.
It's simple capitalism: the same ethic which protects freedom of speech also protects a company's right to drop you like a hot screw when your public activities threaten to cut into their public relations. Just ask Alison Rapp.
Except that it does not. A company is not legally allowed to fire you over your private opinions unless you openly claim that your statements are the company's statements. Free speech.
A company is allowed to fire you if it can prove that your actions at work or at home and the statements you make in the company's name cause it material loss.
If this guy decides to sue two things will happen. He will be rehired and then quit in exchange for a large sum of money, which the court will force the company to pay. The company will be forced to close as it will not be able to afford to pay him.
Alison was fired because she signed an exclusive contract (not allowed to hold a second job) while holding down a second job. I think Nintendo acted ridiculously in her case but a contract is a contract.
Can't see it either. Using Firefox
Apparently it's an ad-blocker stopping it
Nothing happened to free speech. He spoke freely without being censored by anyone; his employer didn't like what he said so they fired him.
Don't confuse free speech with consequence - free speech, the former still exists the latter hardly ever has.
