Controversies Edit

Early controversies Edit

On November 26, 2013, Quinn reported: [1]

The last time I wrote about sexism I got the normal batch of threats and a developer attacking my sexuality.

I should be clear - not just comments or emailed threats. Stuff sent to my physical location.

Quinn reported having received rape threats after collaborating with Andy Moore of Radical Games on a report about sexism in the video game industry. [1]

Wizardchan Edit

On December 6 and December 9, 2013, two posts on Wizardchan insulted Zoe Quinn and her game Depression Quest and called for users to harass her. [2] Quinn reported: [2] [1]

those dudes got my phone number and jerked off into my phone

I may have had to change my phone number because of channers calling me up over DQ

Wizardchan users denied responsibility for the harassment.

A Joke Edit

On December 14, 2013, during the Wizardchan incident, Quinn tweeted:

I made a chrome extension a while back that changes "gamer" to "you little shits."

The Fine Young Capitalists Edit

Wolf Wozniak Edit

Wolf Wozniak accused Quinn of sexually harassing him.

He later took it back, saying that what he did was idiotic.

Hacking, doxxing, and threats Edit

August 19 4chan doxx Edit

On August 19, 2014, an anonymous post to 4chan claimed to have hacked Zoe Quinn's Tumbler account and called for 4chan to raid the account. 4chan users generally refused to participate and accused Quinn of hacking her own account. [2]

A telephone number listed as Quinn's cell phone number used a Hawaiian area code, leading people to suspect the doxx were fake.

8chan threat Edit

On October 14, 2014 somebody posted a death threat against Zoe Quinn on 8chan. The same user then cited that post to condemn everyone following the Gamergate controversy for the threat, saying: "Good luck trying to say Gamergate is about fighting corruption now shitlords. You won't win the fight no matter how hard you try."

Legal activity Edit

Complaint against Eron Gjoni Edit

Zoe Quinn obtained a restraining order against Eron Gjoni. [citation needed]

Text of Quinn's complaint: [3][4]

On or about August 16, 2014, the Defendant wrote and published a long post about my sex life and private dealings to several websites that he knew had a history of harassing me. He was aware that harassment and stalking would happen, and openly admits to doing so to damage my professional reputation as an independent artist. Since then I have received numerous death and rape threats from an anonymous mob that he had given details to. My personal info like my home address, phone number, emails, passwords, and those of my family have been widely distributed, alongside nude photos of me, and several of my professional accounts and those of my colleagues have been hacked.

Eron has coached this mob multiple times, made multiple social media accounts to smear my name publicly, and has stoked the fire of this on many occasions and doesn't seem to be stopping. He has also called hotels that he suspected me of staying at, falsifying information to give more personal info to the mob. I am in fear of him as he is not repentant for the mob's harassment of me and keeps hinting at giving them more information, which he knows will continue inciting the threats and harassment.

He also was violent during our last sexual encounter in July, prior to breaking up, leaving several bruises on my arm. My friend [redacted] stayed with me in the hotel Eron and I had shared after this, having seen the bruises on my arm + noticing he still had a hotel key because we feared he would come back. Eron has also admitted mental instability to me, and informed me via email that he had a history of being violent with a family member. For these reasons, I ask that he be ordered to stay away from me, not contact me, and stop providing any information about me to those involved in an ongoing harassment + stalking campaigns against me, and stop contacted friends and professional colleagues to try and destroy my business.

I have several hundred pages of evidence if needed, and FBI complaint #1409092052252061 SFPD case #140711557, and Boston PD case #142029502.
