Voice actor Troy Baker quits Twitter due to harassment


Troy Baker, the voice actor behind many video game and animated characters, has quit Twitter as of yesterday.

It all started when he quoted a tweet from writer Brian W. Foster in which he poked fun at singer-songwriter Bret Michaels. The tweet has since been removed but reads:

“Brett Michaels looks like Mickey Rourke tried to become Caitlyn Jenner.” – @BrianWFoster

Considering the statement was referring to Caitlyn Jenner, many users were quick to accuse Baker of trans-phobia. Some even went as far as to tell him to kill himself. He then tweeted a response to these harsh critics which read, “It’s a shame when there are people who would much rather choose to be offended than laugh.” He soon followed it up with: “I quit Twitter.”

Over a day has passed and there hasn’t been any activity on his feed since; whether he will come back remains to be seen. Will you miss Baker’s humorous Twitter presence? I know I will. After all, he just wants to bring joy.

l love to play games and write stuff about them. I can't play something and not tell anyone how I feel about it. Call it a sickness, because it is.
