Nintendo condemns the abuse in Super Smash Bros community

Nintendo has told the media that it fully condemns the accusations of abuse within the Super Smash Bros competitive community. The recently disclosed accusations range from “inappropriate sexual messages to sexual relationships with minors on the sidelines of tournament events, and even accusations of rape.” Here’s what the company had to say on the matter:

 “We are deeply disturbed by the allegations raised against certain members of the competitive gaming community. They are absolutely impermissible.

“We want to make it clear that we condemn all acts of violence, harassment, and exploitation against anyone and that we stand with the victims.”
