The Zak S. incident and being kicked out of D&D[edit]

Does it bear mentioning that Mearls got a public backlash after he voiced support for Zak Smith, who subsequently got revealed as a rapist, and that this led to him disappearing from the D&D public eye for months, until WotC confirmed that he had been officially booted from at least the tabletop RPG portion of the workforce?--QuietBrowser (talk) 16:45, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

Eh, there's too many trash-fires about that kinda drama on this site already. Does it really matter that much, especially since he was only vaguely and tangentially related to any of it? It'd bear mention on a Zak Smith page, maybe. --SpectralTime (talk) 03:45, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
Although if that latter part's accurate, it's probably worth updating this page with just that. No need to bring up Mr. Smith. Saarlacfunkel (talk) 05:25, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
Was confused by pronouns originally there. For the record, I’m not sure those things are necessarily correlated simply because it sounds like this particular incident was more than a year ago, and they probably would’ve dropped him like a hot potato if it was directly because of that. Yeah, just mentioning he’s left the design team would work better. —SpectralTime (talk) 07:31, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
