Evolve’s Community Manager Josh Olin fired after Twitter comment on bigoted NBA owner

Turtle Rock Studio Community Manager Josh Olin has been fired after taking to Twitter to comment on NBA Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

Sterling is in hot water after a recording has emerged with the owner making comments saying black people aren’t welcome to watch his team play.

Olin took to Twitter to register his opinions on the matter:

Later, Turtle Rock, who’re currently developing Evolve, took to Twitter to address the tweet:

The “former” in Turtle Rock’s tweets seemed to suggest Olin is no longer with the company. Olin later sent another tweet that seems to confirm the matter.

Do you support this termination, when Olin’s tweets had nothing to do with the video game industry? Or is this valid because of his status in the industry, combined with his 142,000 Twitter followers? Sound off in the comments area, below.

Stevivor interviewed Josh Olin when he was in Australia discussing Evolve.
