I haven't read whatever the original nonsense was, and I'm not interested in doing so. From what I gather from some of the comments I've read here, it sounds like another case of stupid internet rubbish.
I'd just like to say that I'm a female fan and think that anyone who paid any real attention to Giant Bomb would know that of all the possible groups to accuse of misogyny and racism, the GB crew is obviously NOT a valid candidate. It's a small crew, they have specific needs, it's not inconceivable that this just happens to be the best fit. Going out of the way and making it a point to hire for "diversity" IS racist and misogynistic.
