Quote:Recently, Machinima reported that Gamestop will be closing 500 of its stores across the U.S. due to sales in 2012 being anywhere but favorable. Khail Anonymous, upon delivering the news proceeds to deliver a self-gratifying exhumation of 'evil laughter' followed by an over endearing show-and-tell of middle fingers and cusses. On Khail's twitter, he shares that he had once been a Gamestop employee and tweets "it was surprisingly degrading. Boo GameStop."

I think a better question is why give him an echo chamber? It's not hard to run into a rant about GameStop. Heck, I made one of my own at some point. But at some point a sane human mind remembers it's a business, it has right to make it's choices, and those within it's walls are still human beings that deserve respect.

Me personally? I take issue with paying large amounts for used content, or new cost for an open box. But guess what? I just don't pay it. Problem solved!

I guess some people just never grow up.

Agreed.

I can't believe Machinima would even act as his echo chamber or condone kicking people when they're still down.

That part where he did a fake monologue about feeling sorry for those who lost their jobs, and then killed it with middle fingers and cussing - that was totally unnecessary.

And he still stands by what he did on his twitter. Congrats Machinima.

I don't have a problem with news shows that have an editorial slant (as long as they're honest about it). I also don't have a problem with people who have a problem with corporations. However, a bit of restraint and subtlety would be nice as opposed to this incredibly juvenile display of shouting fuck and waving the middle finger around.
