In case you’ve been hiding somewhere without internet for a day or two, you’ve probably heard about how Penny Arcade exposed a ludicrous conversation between the world’s worst customer service representative at Ocean Marketing and one of their readers. It swept across the internet in record time, eventually causing Kotkin Enterprises, the makers of the Avenger controller, to drop Ocean Marketing as their PR firm and customer service.
Byeuji on the GirlGamers subreddit asks:
Anyone else find it absolutely amazing how Penny Arcade can really whip people into a frenzy over controllers, but tell people to screw off over rape jokes?
I read the emails – the manufacturer guy was a complete asshole and totally unprofessional. I’m not sure it warrants a witch hunt and public shaming, but whatever.
But when someone at Penny Arcade is a complete asshole and totally unprofessional, they tell us to get bent and oh btw don’t come to PAX anymore.
Absolutely amazing, indeed.
