RIP Philo

Bully Hunters

This group was set up to counter supposed sexual harassment in online games.

Except it turned out the whole thing was completely faked as a way to market headsets.

So the idea is you install a hack into your game and whenever you want to you can call upon some other person, a more talented gamer presumably, to take over your rig remotely and defeat whoever you are fighting in the game.

The justification is that the person killed is someone who said something politically incorrect in the game like "faggot".

Installing such a hack though is a cheat and is grounds for permanent banning on nearly every gaming platform.

Most gaming platforms have reporting for abuse, and you can block people or just turn your headphones off, so I don't see what all the fuss is about.

Players are just as abusive to males.

Looks like the video footage on the news of the in-game abuse taking place was all faked and scripted.

All the quoted statistics have been ripped to shreds.

The backlash over this has been so massive that all the associated people and companies are trying desperately to distance themselves from it.

People are swearing to never buy SteelSeries equipment ever again.
