The Tweets didn't seem to be inspired by a certain incident. Day never responded to them publicly.
Does Felicia Day matter at all? I mean does she actually contribute anything useful to this industry, besides retaining a geek persona?
@feliciaday, I keep seeing everywhere. Question: Do you matter at all? Do you even provide anything useful to gaming, besides “personality?
Could you be considered nothing more than a glorified booth babe? You don’t seem to add anything creative to the medium.
On Saturday night, the official Destructoid Editors account (@Destructoid) posted the following in response to Perez:
And then 30 minutes ago, they dropped the bomb on Perez officially:
We would like to apologize re: comments made by one of our contributors toward @feliciaday and state publicly @Dtoid does not share them.
We have great respect for the contributions @feliciaday has made both to the culture and business of games and online entertainment.
We hope that @feliciaday and her fans will be understanding. Thank you.
Perez responded to his firing with the following:
Destructoid has ended its relationship with Ryan Perez, effective immediately. We again apologize to @feliciaday and all others concerned.
It's since become a very hot topic on social media. As of this posting, "Destructoid" is the #4 worldwide trend.
I should have been smarter and just made a comment against God or the Catholic Church…
What does Gaf think?
EDIT 1: Perez apologized to Day. Day accepted his apology.
EDIT 2: Perez is now shit talking Wil Wheaton.
@wilw I'm small-time. Nobody should care about what I say. Go fuck yourself, you opportunistic puddle of miscarriage soup.
