Games Designer Forced from Home

Game Designer Brianna Wu and her husband, Frank, were forced out of their home after Brianna received death threats over twitter which also revealed the couple’s home address. Police worked with the Wus to get them to a safe space, calling the threats credible, and Twitter shut down the offending account. Wu is believed to have been targeted because of comments she has made about misogyny rampant in the gaming community. Frank has written that they are currently okay, but suggests that anyone who wants to help can do so “by contributing to her friends’ legal fund.”
