Adam Orth, Microsoft game exec who insulted fans on Twitter, has left the company (updated) | VentureBeat

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
