We found out today from Alison Rapp that she had been let go from Nintendo of America, but the circumstances surrounding her departure were unclear. There are a number of theories why she was fired, but Nintendo says that the reason for them terminating her contract was a second job that was in conflict with Nintendo’s corporate culture. You can read the full statement provided to IGN below.
?Alison Rapp was terminated due to violation of an internal company policy involving holding a second job in conflict with Nintendo?s corporate culture. Though Ms. Rapp?s termination follows her being the subject of criticism from certain groups via social media several weeks ago, the two are absolutely not related. Nintendo is a company committed to fostering inclusion and diversity in both our company and the broader video game industry and we firmly reject the harassment of individuals based on gender, race or personal beliefs. We wish Ms. Rapp well in her future endeavors.?
