The correct and only response to finding out your best friend sexually harasses people is to throw them under the bus. This being up for debate is ridiculous. Put your self in the shoes of his victims.
Massive is right in that if someone you personally knew and were good friends with did something similar, would you instantly cut all ties or try to at least help them beforehand? Yes, Nick Robinson is a shitbag and anyone doing similar shit falls into the same category but if that person is a close friend, what do you do? I'd at least try to help as opposed to instantly disown them. If they refuse to change, then all bets are off.
It didn't get much past vague tweets, but a lot of those vague tweets were from trustworthy/smart people, and Kessler condemning it is meaningful in a different (but not more valid) way, because he is/was friends with Nick.
Yep, it's pretty crazy that this was what finally got him exposed. It's a pretty sad state of affairs that no one felt safe (and still don't) coming forward about him. Hopefully there is enough information out there for Polygon to take action.
Imma be pedantic but I don't really think this is a "milkshake duck". That's more of a thing for when someone new on the internet does something cool and then quickly turns out to be terrible.(Ken Bone, The Last Night guy). Nick is more a part of a long line of people in powerful public positions later turning out to be awful. (Gibson, Cosby etc.)
Beast here to save us from this awfulness with new content though 🙌
