Employees of Destiny 2 developer Bungie recently scaled back their social media communication in response to threats and harassment, and now court filings in Canada have revealed just how intense those threats were.
According to a report from the Waterloo Region Record, in June an Ontario judge ordered Canadian anonymous phone service provider TextNow Inc. to release the name of customers who made “racist and serious physical threats” against Bungie employees. The ruling details some of the threats made against two Bungie employees, which included doxxing, harassing tweets, racist phone calls, and threats of violence.
The Record’s report states that the harassment started following a tweet on the official Destiny 2 Twitter account which included a video featuring Twitch streamer Uhmaayyze, who often freestyle raps while he plays Destiny. Superior court judge Fred Myers said in the ruling that, following the tweet, Bungie employees were doxxed and harassed, with one anonymous person sending threats to kill Bungie employees to Bungie Twitter accounts.
