NeoGAF Owner Under Fire for Alleged Sexual Misconduct, Future Of Site Uncertain

NeoGAF Owner Under Fire for Alleged Sexual Misconduct, Future Of Site Uncertain

For those looking for cutting-edge gaming news and rumors, the original source for much of it was NeoGAF. "A lot of members have resorted to creating subreddits and Discord groups". However, it appears that just about everyone is turning on the site right now.

In the wake of some very serious allegations of sexual harassment (captured here on Imgur, with names removed) levelled at site-owner Tyler "Evilore" Malka, at least 11 site administration and moderation staff have stepped up and walked out in a show of solidarity with the accuser, taking numerous site's regular users with them.

Accusations against the Malka arose Tuesday on Facebook when a mutual friend recounted her experience of a road trip she took with him to New Orleans. He apparently stepped naked into the shower with her, uninvited. This isn't the first time Malka's found himself in trouble for inappropriate behavior toward women, and it looks like he's facing some serious repercussions in the wake of these latest allegations.

Super Bowl reminders abound as Patriots prepare for Falcons
Prior to last season's Super Bowl , the Patriots and Falcons hadn't met since 2013 when the Patriots beat the Falcons 30-23. Now, Matt Ryan and Tom Brady get to do it again - this time on Sunday Night Football , broadcast live at 8:30 p.m.

As the chaos continued, numerous forum's moderators also began to distance themselves from the site, staging what some Internet users are claiming was a "walk out". These allegations come after a 2012 post where Evilore self reported that he grabbed the ass of a woman that he did not know, without consent, "to show her that [he] wasn't being taken advantage of".

A majority, if not all, of the moderators for the site have resigned and the rest of the community is strongly voicing their displeasure with the lack of a response from the site's founder. One user, in particular, added the word "women" to the site's motto which is "Believe" to support the courageous women breaking their silence to call out their tormentors.

It should go without saying but we here at GameZone are disgusted and despise Tyler Malka's actions. If you have been affected by any kind of sexual harassment/assault, GameZone stands with you in both silence and your loud, outspoken comments. We'll update this article with said statement upon its release.
