“Adam Orth, Microsoft game exec who insulted fans on Twitter, has left the company (updated) | VentureBeat | Social | by John Koetsier, TUNE”

Sadness

In the same breath, apparently, he deleted his LinkedIn account. We hear that he had to do this because he received numerous death threats. That part is quite regretable [sic].

Come on, Internet. His comments did sound jerkish, but there’s no reason to send anyone death threats. ಠ_ಠ

It’s actually unfortunate he lost his job (doesn’t say whether he quit or was fired). I mean, it happens if you say stupid things online (on a PR platform like Twitter especially) and you’re in a high ranking position like creative director, but it’s still sad! :O
