Even if all of this is true (it isn't; but skipping over that), her social media, financial, and email accounts have been hacked, and explicit photos revealed from that were sent to her were sent to her friends and family.

Can you maybe see how a. that sort of thing doesn't happen to men in the industry, and b. how very wrong it is to do stuff like this because of rumors of VIDEO GAME ETHICS VIOLATIONS?
