Two Riot Games Employees Out After Controversial PAX Panel

Stuff just keeps getting weirder and weirder at Riot Games. I got $$ that says this is not the last we will be hearing of this.

Systems designer Daniel Klein and communications associate Mattias Lehman were known to be outspoken on social media within the game’s community. Most recently, that discussion revolved around a controversial decision to keep some events at PAX West open only to women and non-binary people. Klein told The Verge: “I was fired for violating our social media policy.” It’s still not clear if Lehman was fired or if he quit.
