APEX, NC – A niche video game distribution company, Limited Run Games, has managed to place itself in the spotlight after bending the proverbial knee to woke cancel culture via reportedly firing a female employee at the company allegedly based solely on who this woman follows on social media.

The whole debacle apparently began on the morning of January 6th after a Twitter account operating under the username “Purple Tinker hates Elon” (which has since been deleted) took to the platform to complain about a Limited Run Games employee by the name of Kara Lynne, claiming Lynne “is a transphobe who follows a veritable who’s who of right-wing transphobic creeps.”

An archive of the Twitter thread in question reveals that this Twitter user followed up the “transphobe” accusations levied against Lynne with a call to action for Limited Run Games, tagging the company in the original tweet and writing, “Unless and until she is fired from the company permanently, I am not giving them another single dime.”

The “Purple Tinker hates Elon” account began posting additional screenshots of who Lynne was following on Twitter as a means to foment more outrage among the far left while also grossly misrepresenting two of Lynne’s posts on the platform from 2016 and 2019 as “transphobic” (with the 2019 post consisting of Lynne commenting on the antics of then-topical controversial radical trans activist Jessica Yaniv).

This thread began attracting the outrage farm it desired, with cancel culture adherents demanding that Lynne be fired from her job over who she followed online in conjunction with the two fairly innocuous aforementioned posts from years earlier. The “Purple Tinker hates Elon” account then opted to post screenshots of an order summary page from Limited Run Games’ website, claiming they were demanding “a refund for my over $1200 in pending orders.”

Hours after the thread was started, Limited Run Games took to their official Twitter account to announce – without naming Lynne directly – that they had fired an employee after “investigating a situation.”

“LRG respects all personal opinions, however we remain committed to supporting an inclusive culture. Upon investigating a situation, an employee was terminated. Our goal as a company is to continue to foster a positive and safe environment for everyone.”

It was hardly a mystery as to who this unnamed employee Limited Run Games “terminated” was, considering the company delivered the announcement on Twitter on the afternoon of January 6th whilst the “Purple Tinker hates Elon” account concluded their original thread with a celebratory posting of, “UPDATE: SHE WAS FIRED.”

Ironically, the person behind this since-deleted Twitter account, “Purple Tinker hates Elon,” is hardly the sort of individual who should be virtue signaling to whip up a cancel mob to get some young woman in North Carolina fired.

Jonathan Louis Blank, who goes by the name “Jessica Blank,” is reportedly the founder of “BronyCon” (a My Little Pony convention for adult males) and identifies as transgender. And for all the outrage he spun up on Twitter over two rather innocent posts by Lynne, he apparently is not someone exactly heralded within the social justice warrior community – at least by those who are familiar with his antics over the past few years.

Apparently, Blank has endured several controversial accusations involving domestic abuse, racism, and numerous acts of stalking and has espoused wild opinions regarding rape (to include the assertion that verbal bullying he has allegedly endured is worse than being physically raped).

And this was the person who Limited Run Games decided to cower before and fire one of their employees over – a man who started the questionable BronyCon gatherings and who harbors a laundry list of unsettling practices and stances.

After news began to spread about Limited Run Games firing one of their employees solely off of the rantings contained in Blank’s Twitter thread, the video game distribution company began to garner a sizeable amount of backlash – eventually resulting in the company turning off the ability to reply to their posts on Twitter.

Since terminating Lynne, Limited Run Games has not released any additional statement pertaining to the matter (or the subsequent backlash they began receiving in response to their absurd actions taken). As for Lynne, she has since privated her Twitter account and has yet to make any public statements regarding the situation.

We at Red Voice Media reached out to Lynne for comment on the situation and will update the report accordingly with any statements she provides.
