There is no doubt something going on at NeoGaf, the gaming forum has been down for much of the last 30 hours and Moderators for the site are jumping ship like it is sinking. The exact reason isn’t known at the moment but it seems to all be generating from an accusation that the owner sexually harassed a woman.
The post originated from the #MeToo social media campaign. If you are unfamiliar with the campaign, it appeared after the the very well publicised Harvey Weinstein sexually harrasment scandle. Many women from all walks of life have joined together to share their experiences being sexually harassed and to put the spotlight on those who do the harassment.
A woman, whose name is being protected when into detail on a facebook post, claiming NeoGaf owner Tyler Malka got in a shower. completely nude with her, he was uninvited. After she turned him down she says he “got out slowly and started resenting me, being mean to me, ignoring me.”
She also says she couldn’t post his name out of fear of being ridiculed and not believed, on top of not being able to defend herself.
While these accusations are serious, nothing has been proven yet. As of right now Neogaf.com is down and admins and users are jumping ship rapidly. Some even going as far to get themselves banned.
There isn’t much information available at the moment and NeoGaf hasn’t released an Official Statment yet, we will update this post as we find more information.
