Scumbags Harass Woman For Working On Mass Effect: Andromeda's Animations

I like how the very same websites that started all this crap about facial animations are now acting outraged that something like this happened. It's like stirring up a beehive and then being surprised that angry bees sting people. 😒

Allie Rose-Marie Leost, who worked for EA’s motion-capture labs in Vancouver, saw vicious harassment on Twitter and other websites today, most often from people who blamed her for Andromeda’s awkward facial animations. The harassment appears to have been primarily triggered by a vile blog post at Ralph Retort, a right-wing, GamerGate-tied website, that claimed Leost was the lead facial animator on Andromeda. That website also accused her of performing sexual acts to get her job at EA.
