Last Friday, the video game company Limited Run Games fired their community manager, Kara Lynn, after a transgender activist reported that she followed right-wing users on Twitter, including Libs of TikTok. The far-left activist, using the name “Purple Tinker,” demanded the company either fire Lynn or lose them as a customer. Limited Run Games ultimately chose to fire their employee.
“The community manager for @LimitedRunGames, [Kara Lynn], is a transphobe who follows a veritable who’s who of right-wing transphobic creeps,” tweeted the far-left account. “Unless and until she is fired from the company permanently, I am not giving them another single dime.”
The tweet garnered hundreds of likes and replies from dozens of like-minded left-wing extremists, who called on Limited Run Games to fire their employee. After a short period, Limited Run Games issued a statement announcing that Kara Lynn had been fired.
“LRG respects all personal opinions, however we remain committed to supporting an inclusive culture. Upon investigating a situation, an employee was terminated,” wrote the company in a statement. “Our goal as a company is to continue to foster a positive and safe environment for everyone.”

The statement issued by Limited Run Games has been flooded by comments in support of the employee.
According to a 2012 article from The Observer, the Twitter user who reported on the now fired employee is a biological male, transgender activist who co-founded BronyCon, a convention for adult men who dress up as characters from the children’s show My Little Pony. “Teenagers aren’t f***ing babies. The line between ‘child’ and ‘adult’ is VERY BLURRY. Teens deserve respect,” wrote Purple Tinker in one Twitter thread.
“The existence of the term ‘statutory rape’ denies personhood and self-determination to a whole class of PEOPLE.”
Hey @LimitedRunGames, was it worth it? Dying on a hill for this POS? pic.twitter.com/q9YCJvpS7k
