On Friday, the video game company Limited Run Games fired their community manager, a woman named Kara Lynn, after a far-left trans activist using the name Purple Tinker demanded the company either fire Lynn because she followed conservative users on Twitter such as Ian Miles Cheong and Libs of Tik Tok, or lose their support.
Ian Miles Cheong tweeted, "A video game company called @LimitedRunGames fired @KaraLynne0326 because some nut job got offended over the fact that she follows me and @libsoftiktok."
According to an Observer article from 2012, Purple Tinker is a biological male who identifies as transgender, and an activist who founded BronyCon, a convention for adult men who like to dress up as characters from the children's television show My Little Pony.
Cheong posted screenshots of Purple Tinker's now-deleted Twitter account.
"The community manager for @LimitedRunGames, @/KaraLynne0326, is a transphobe who follows a veritable who's who of right-wing transphobic creeps.Unless and until she is fired from the company permanently, I am not giving them another single dime. (CW: Transphobia)," Purple Tinker tweeted at the company on January 6 at 9:06 am.
At 5:40 pm the same day, on their Twitter account, Limited Run Games announced that Lynn had been fired and wrote "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."
Popular streamer and "Nerd Culture Content Creator" Melonie Mac, commented with "This is so messed up. @KaraLynne0326 is amazing and deserves better. Shame on you, @LimitedRunGames."
Mac added in a later tweet, "You do not respect all personal opinions else this decision would not have happened, and if you were committed to an inclusive culture you wouldn't have fired a Christian woman for her beliefs."
In the screengrab posted by Ian Miles Cheong, one of the Lynn's posts that Purple Tinker brought to Limited Run Games' attention was one where she expressed concern over biological males identifying as transgender using women's restrooms.
Mac tweeted, "This is the face of the person who got a woman fired from @LimitedRunGames because of her concern for the safety of females against incognito predators in female restrooms. Let that sink in."
Other posts that Purple Tinker used against Lynn involved her looking forward to a Harry Potter game.
Another trans activist named Josie Brechner demanded Lynn be fired as well and retweeted Purple Tinker.
Twitter user Steph Anie, wrote "There's a whole Tumblr history thread on this persons vile behavior" in reference to a Tumblr post dedicated to exposing a history of Purple Tinker's online history of "wishing violence on people," doxxing, and bullying.
"Oh wow, the cancel crusading brony thinks young teens can consent to sex with an adult. It's almost as if this is a repetitious theme among those who cling to the cancel culture bandwagon the hardest," wrote user Sophia Narwitz, who added screen grabs of Purple Tinker advocating for sex between adults and minors.
