I mean, we all knew Bobby Kotick was a prick.

Until now, though, no one really seemed to care. What finally moved the meter were more allegations this week, including one that Kotick left an employee a voicemail where he threatened to kill her. 

Well, that seems healthy. 

The other mind-blowing revelation this week was that Fran Townsend's entirely despicable email in responsible to sexual assault allegations against the company was actually written by--drum roll, please--Bobby Kotick, and sent out under her name. Here you go: Bobby Kotick Actually Wrote Fran Townsend's Deranged, Company-Wide Email. Unbelievable. 

There are plenty of other reasons to not like Fran Townsend, but this isn't one of them. It does make you wonder, though, what made it worth it for her. It was a truly terrible email, and she's been dragged to every corner of the universe (including by me). How much money is compensation for utter humiliation?

A lot, probably. 

I'm going to plant a stake in the ground here and say that Bobby Kotick will be gone from Activision within the week. I wouldn't be surprised at all if it's before the weekend.
