Ghostcrawler Reflects on Recently-Resurfaced Sylvanas Discussion from BlizzCon 2010 Q&A
26/07/2021 alle 12:18
Former Blizzard employee Ghostcrawler reflects on a recently-resurfaced BlizzCon 2010 panel, in which a female fan asked a question about diversity in female representation in World of Warcraft and received an inappropriate response from Blizzard employees including Alex Afrasiabi.
"I love what you have done with World of Warcraft. I love that you have a lot of very strong female characters. However, I was wondering if we could have some that don't look like they've stepped out of a Victoria Secret's catalogue?"
The all-male panel's response is to laugh openly before Alex Afrasiabi, who was recently named in the
discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuit
filed against Activision Blizzard, addresses the question in a notably dismissive way, suggesting he couldn't personally see Sylvanas looking any other way, and that they will "look at other catalogues". The other panelists seem to encourage and entertain Alex, including J. Allen Brack, who
recently sent out a letter claiming to "disdain bro culture" and that he has spent his "career fighting it"
Alex Afrasiabi: What do you mean?
J. Allen Brack: Wait, wait.
Tom Chilton: What catalogue would you like them to step out of?
J. Allen Brack: Yeah!
Alex Afrasiabi: Could you see Sylvanas looking any other way? Right. So, we feel you, and we want to vary our female characters, absolutely, so yeah. We'll pick different catalogues.
J. Allen Brack: Hey, Alex, what calendar is that Tauren female coming out of?
Alex Afrasiabi: Not one you'd read.
J. Allen Brack: Yeah... Sexy, sexy cow business!
Former Blizzard employee Ghostcrawler, who was also on the panel, recently shared his thoughts about the Q&A on Twitter, acknowledging that it was a "shitty" answer to the question, and that he feels "terrible now seeing the look on her face".
