THQ Nordic holding an AMA on... 8chan (UP: website linked to mass shootings in NZ) READ THREADMARKS

He said he personally greenlit it. Why did he say 'I' instead of 'we'

You think every employee of thq is behind this?
Absolutely not, but there’s no way he ran off and did this without anybody else knowing about it. Otherwise he’d be the worst Marketing Director ever.

I have a hard time thinking this can be blamed on one singular person. If THQ wants forgiveness I’m expecting more than just their PR Manager taking the blame and saying sorry.
This definitely feels like a blunder by the entire marketing department and one guy is being assigned the blame.

Actually...this was great PR, everyone's talking about it.

Internet is blowing up, fck man.
It's great PR if you're intending to piss off literally all of your business partners as well as people that would otherwise have been interested in your games.

THQ Nordic has the Nickelodeon license. They did an AMA on a site for child porn. They'll be lucky if Viacom doesn't rip open the fabric of reality when they tear them a new asshole.

I agree. You don’t just come back from this with a bullshit apology.

To be this ignorant and in his position within the company? FFS.
Yeah, and being marketing director, he could just ignore other people's warnings about this (if there were any, but i really doubt that an entire team of a big company would put up with this shit). Well, at least i want to believe that.

I personally agreed to this AMA without doing my proper due diligence to understand the history and the controversy of the site. I do not condone child pornography, white supremacy, or racism in any shape or form

The thing I am most skeptical about is if the whole company really was behind this or if it was a case of "We trust you, do whatever" and he creates this circus.

User Banned (1 Week): Dismissing concerns surrounding hate and harassment
dude should be promoted, he generated a lot of publicity, 24 pages on era alone, I doubt any other person would have been able to do what he did.

So were the posts by Reinhard fake, or was he involved with this?

Because if he went to that site and still chose to engage, this is not the case of just one guy making a mistake. You don't just wind up at a Klan rally and decide you're going to hand out refreshments like you'd planned for the concert.

I thought this was something multiple people in THQ Nordic agreed for. You kinda can't spin this into the mistake of one single guy and end the whole debacle with potentially firing him, this SHOULD have more consequences than this.

Literally all they’re apologizing for is the venue in which they decided to hold their message and not the fact that their message was to fight SJW influence and include more lolis. Fuck off forever THQ.

Kinda surprised there hasn't been an attempt at a major raid yet from 8chan, they seemed to love talking about us, (envious as fuck).
ResetEra isn’t really the type of site you can raid. There are subtle infiltrations though. In Etc, if you go to any given thread about black/women’s rights, you’ll see it.

"Hey this is actually good PR because everyone is talking about it"

HEADLINE: THQ NORDIC DECLARES IT'S INTENTION TO FUND ISIS, IMMEDIATELY PLEDGES MILLIONS OF DOLLARS

Hey that would also be good PR, everyone would be talking about it.
