It's sad but not exactly surprising.

As reported by Polygon , the FBI has been handed information to assist in its investigation of the death threats against Feminist Frequency creator, Anita Sarkeesian.

Sarkeesian had filed a report with the police department regarding threats she'd received online, and the San Francisco police public information officer Albie Espara says that info has been given to the FBI. That's about all we know right now. However, the drama surrounding the feminist spokeswoman has been growing as of late, mostly due to gamers rebelling against Sarkeesian's controversial stance.

However, that's no excuse for death threats and bomb threats. At the Game Developers Choice Awards (GDCA), after it was announced that Sarkeesian was the recipient of the Ambassador Award (which honors an individual for helping video games reach a "better place"), Kotaku reported that unless the hosts rescinded that award, "a bomb would be detonated."

Like a real trooper, she still went up on stage and accepted the award. Personally, I find her to be more of a sensationalist who doesn't know anywhere near enough about the video game industry to be lecturing about it, but please…death threats? People are sick.

Heh, you just reminded me of something I read on the internet the other day but can't post it here cause it's far too filthy and I'd probably get banned.

She's that person who made a kickstarter made a crap ton of cash to make like 4 or 5 youtube video games vs women tropes or something.

Also the fact that she apparently isn't a gamer at all even though she states she is one (when there is video evidence of her saying otherwise) and it's just a pile of crazy on the internet about her.

Somewhat related… I remember reading how the rape threats she said she reported to the police were never true. I can't find the article in my history but there was no report of her ever calling the police about these "rape threats". On her twitter she said something about the police telling her to find a job that won't put her in that position but there's no evidence of her ever calling at all.

agreed me and countless others on another site I frequent have searched her twitter, facebook, instagram etc. pages and found nothing other than, at the worst, calling her and idiot or just calling her out on lying

@ newchef

It's a little unclear whether or not mustang is referring to the report being fictitious or the actual threats against her. I have find the latter rather hard to believe.

I think that these people who send these threats would avoid doing so on a social media platform for other people to see. Instead she'd get the majority of them if not all through anonymous emails and phone calls/messages.

People have sent death threats to 11 year olds. Seriously. Don't like Power Rangers hiring an 11 year old to be a Ranger? Send him a death threat. It's totally his call. Don't like an 11 year old brat on Kid nation? send her a death threat. That''ll learn her.

Why on Earth these people aren't being institutionalized is beyond me.

she makes good points sometimes, but she should tackle other subjects rather than video games for feminism. i mean, yeah its everywhere unfortunately, but why are you bothering gamers when youre not even one??

i'll tell you what my 1st thought was r u serious like are you frigin kidding me that seems a bit far.

but yes the threats were OTT everyone could see that some people need to get a grip.

however with "helping the video game industry get to a better place" please as if we're fine atleast in my view i don't see anyone generally or even my friends we're nothing like that.

who else agrees with me on the helping games part

happy gaming
