The tweets included jokes based on racist stereotypes, far-right issues such as former US President Barack Obama’s citizenship rights, and insults aimed at people with disabilities.
“Last weekend, an old tweet I wrote before spending time at Crystal resurfaced. I apologize and take full responsibility for the hurt I caused my followers, community and those I work with.” Wagoner said in a tweet (above)…
“Since then, I have learned and grown, but the content I post does not reflect who I am today. I understand that you cannot accept my apology because of the pain I have caused. I will continue to listen, learn and work to improve myself.”
Crystal Dynamics tweeted, citing Wagoner’s apology. Become a studio spokesperson or communicate about studio projects. ”
