Activision Blizzard boss Bobby Kotick, along with a number of other senior executives, has spoken again as the company remains embroiled in controversy following the recent California Department of Fair Employment and Housing lawsuit alleging sexual harassment, discrimination, and a “frat boy” work culture at Blizzard.
Addressing investors during Activision Blizzard’s Q2 2021 results call this evening, Kotick said, “I want to start by making clear to everyone that there’s no place in our company where discrimination, harassment, or unequal treatment of any kind will be tolerated. Nowhere.
“We so appreciate the current and former employees who’ve come forward in past recent days with courage and I want to reiterate the commitments we’ve made to you. Our work environment, everywhere we operate, will not permit discrimination, harassment, or unequal treatment. We will be the company that sets the example for this in our industry.”
