Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya’s Twitter account is gone (update: it’s back)

Update: Not long after this post was written, Hideki Kamiya’s Twitter returned. He’s also tweeted about the matter, confirming that the account went down because he had deactivated it, and decided to reactivate it again. That said, he seems to be suggesting that he may do it again depending on what happens with his mentions.

By now, you’re more than likely aware of the news regarding remarks that Hellena Taylor, the original voice of Bayonetta, had shared recently. Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya would later respond to the news with a tweet saying “Sad and deplorable about the attitude of untruth. That’s what all I can tell now. By the way, BEWARE OF MY RULES”.

However, if you try to see that tweet now, you are not going to have any luck. Sometime today, Hideki Kamiya‘s Twitter account went offline. Viewing his account will now greet you with a message saying that the account doesn’t exist. The reason for his account’s disappearance isn’t known at this time.

  1. I’m pretty sure he probably removed his Twitter account so he wouldn’t face massive criticism over Hellena Taylor dispute complaining about being replaced and the amount she is receiving from her hard on work which is basically not enough for her to pay for her living expenses or income. Everyone criticize everything. Some companies like Platinum games are always so greedy to face criticism.

      1. Yeah, I’m pretty sure he have a very good reason why he do this to Hellena Taylor in the first place by replacing her in the last minute and didn’t get a chance to pay her in the exact same amount that she always been getting during her recording sessions in both Bayonetta games and Smash Bros too.

  2. That voice actress was right about the boycott. Successful companies will keep making the wrong decisions as long as consumers consume. How are the Mccaskeys still in charge of the Bears? Because people still watch and go to games. Starbucks and Amazon get away with union busting because people need their coffee and 2 day shipping. Home depot and other retailers can donate to facsist politicians and keep doing business. We need more massive boycotts.

    1. Considering the entire entertainment industry and most large tech corporations donate to facist psychopath politicians, I don’t really think they care.

      1. There is one thing that they truly care about the most. Milk Money!. They don’t even care, they just like to do stuff like this for their own pleasure by getting away with it.

  3. I wish I could have that $4,000. That’s a lot to me. Heck, I’d be honored to have my voice in a video game with no pay at all. Some people aren’t happy unless you’re offering them a million dollars/pounds. 😒

    1. this is the only comment in this thread that makes any sense whatsoever. $4000 for a couple hours’ work tops is cushy by any definition

      1. this loser’s claiming he’d like to work for a company without getting paid, and you think he’s making sense? and on top of that you think it only takes a “couple of hours” to voice act the main character in a video game. here’s hoping you’re just pretending to be this ignorant

        1. The only true “losers” in this world are the ones that go around calling others a loser. There’s too many people like you on the internet. 😒

    2. With that logic you don’t need a paycheck wherever you work/ if you work. Your logic is child logic, we don’t live in a fantasy world and it’s obvious you nothing about vas. They do not have a constant stream of work. That could be the only job she has on 3 months. Most vas are not paid well and they will not be paid well because of people like you. Just cause she makes more doesn’t make it right bro.

  4. Hideki Kamiya is a complete dick, I asked that clown a simple question about possibly working with Sega to make A Shinobi game similar to Nier Automata and he blocked me, mind you I only asked him that one time and never asked again.
    Some people are just assholes and he is definitely one of them.
