Xbox Brazil caught in controversy (again) after dismiss a Host wich was victm of rape and death threats

translation by Herr (PurpleEra)

At the beginning of September, when I announced my new job at Xbox Brasil, I suffered harassment of all kinds, from people saying that I didn’t play x or y and that I wasn’t “worthy” of my job, to rape/death threats and aggression for exposing tense situations. Thanks to the help of my family, boyfriend and friends, I learned well on how to deal with this, but it didn’t meant that it was not happening anymore. And thanks to all these harassments, Microsoft decided that it was for the best sever ties with me as a host so I wouldn’t be more exposed to situations like these that happened.

I respect the decision made by Microsoft, my love for them will be the same as always, Thank you.

Awful, and sorry to hear she had to go through that. It’s messed up for the company to fire her due to her being abused. Hopefully Phil can make this right, and clean house because this sounds like awful management.

That is awful. MS needs to crack down hard on the Brazil office. They seem incredibly toxic and from a global management pov really stain the brand. This never should have happened and international needs to intervene.

I hope she gets a position (should she so desire it) and public support from the higher ups. Also, supposedly people were harassing her because she used to play PlayStation and had a lower Gamerscore. It’s ridiculous and offensive they would do that. MS is trying to change hearts and grow the family, not gatekeep it.

Grr.

I don’t know exactly how things happened there, because I really don’t follow social networks anymore due to toxicity, but being a Brazilian I’m totally sad with the freaking dumpster fire that the social network in this country has turned into. The toxicity in general is widespread, but in gaming is a cesspool of stupidity that makes you sick to follow. So I really belive this woman has suffered all of that she’s is saying and if Xbox Brazil bent themselves to this kind of crap and fired her would be really lame. Xbox Brazil has the history of supporting some really lame fanboys that started with this gamertag score stupidity and escaleted to some serious bigotry that obligated them to cut ties with those ppl. Looks like Xbox Brazil needs some fresh air to get back on track, the country as whole tbh.

Not you saying the VICTIM is “throwing tantrums” after she received rape and death threats AND was dismissed :skull:

This was not handled properly, it was poorly

Xbox Brazil seems like a complete mess.

I hope Phil or whoever handles this kind of stuff takes this seriously.

Yo… not fucking cool. Not at all. Fix this, Phil.

This should be handled swift and hard from HQ. This is not ok, and examples should be made.

Microsoft has to clean house and change some heads in their toxic Xbox Brazil office. This is unacceptable behavior.
