Turtle Rock community manager fired for Twitter comments

Josh Olin voices opinion on NBA scandal and falls afoul of Turtle Rock

Turtle Rock's community and esports manager has apparently been fired after weighing in on a scandal involving racism, the NBA and, of course, Twitter.

Josh Olin's very public mistake was to comment on an escalating controversy from the world of professional basketball, where Donald Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, has been banned from his team's operations and fined $2.5 million for making racist remarks to his girlfriend.

On Wednesday, Olin used his personal Twitter account - which carries the tag, "All my tweets are belong to me" - to speak out in support, if not defence, of Sterling.
