Last night, THQ Nordic PR and marketing director Philipp Brock hosted an open AMA discussion on 8chan, an imageboard blocked by Google for hosting child sex abuse images, and well known for its acceptance of hate speech and abuse.
Brock used the official THQ Nordic Twitter account to invite fans of the publisher’s franchises – series like Darksiders and de Blob as well as recently-acquired properties like Kingdoms of Amalur and TimeSplitters – to the site, where he promptly began answering questions.
One 8chan user asked Brock about “lolis” – referring to drawn images of sexualised children. Accompanying the post was an illustration of two girls having their breasts touched by an adult man. “You got them already we’d say,” Brock responded.
