Following the controversial tweet and his open support for Texas’ controversial “heartbeat law”, John Gibson now has to take his hat off to Tripwire Interactive. The developer and publisher have published a corresponding Pronunciation.
“John Gibson’s comments are his own opinion and do not reflect Tripwire Interactive as a company,” said the statement from the company, of which John Gibson was president until a few hours ago. Under these circumstances, of course, that no longer makes sense.
“Effective immediately, John Gibson has stepped down as CEO of Tripwire Interactive,” it makes sense. Previous vice president and co-founder Alan Wilson will take over as interim CEO.
“His comments disregarded the values of our entire team, our partners and much of our wider community,” the statement continues.
That’s what it was about
Gibson last weekend announced his approval of a highly controversial law that went into effect in Texas on Wednesday. The law, often called the Heartbeat Act, prohibits women from having an abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected. This is the case from about the sixth week of pregnancy.
The Supreme Court was called to block the law, but decided not to. About that said Gibsonwho is “proud” of “affirming Texas law”. Gibson was heavily criticized within the industry for his tweet.
