Jennifer Hepler Did Not Quit BioWare Because Of Harassment, Plus Updates On Xbox Support

Yesterday, we started noticing traffic on a story from February 2012 -”Inclusion: What Jennifer Hepler’s Story is all About.” It was a while later we realized the traffic was as a result of a new story popping up saying the BioWare employee was quitting her job there as a result of the terrible harassment she received, including threats against her children. But here’s the thing, according to Jennifer Hepler herself – that’s not why she quit. This story just happened to bookend a week when we posted about another instance of video game related harassment so we’re going to fill you in on the latest for both.

Turns Out That Emergency Alert System Warning About Zombies Was Fake [VIDEO]

You might be saying to yourself, “of course it was fake” but think about it. KRTV in Great Falls, Montana broadcast the Emergency Alert System noise with a message about the dead coming to life. You can tell the voice is garbled and definitely not one of authority but not everyone was able to pick up on that. In fact, the local newspaper reported four people called the police to ask if it was true.

The station issued a statement saying, “Someone apparently hacked into the Emergency Alert System and announced on KRTV and the CW that there was an emergency in several Montana counties. This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency. Our engineers are investigating to determine what happened and if it affected other media outlets.” Honestly, I’m pretty annoyed at these people. While it was a fun idea, using the EAS is akin to crying wolf. When the zombie apocalypse does happen, no one is going to believe it.
