Throughout 2019, Texas based production company Rooster Teeth, has faced an unfathomable amount of bad news.
From the Vice President of Product and Engineering, Michael Quinn being investigated for spousal abuse, to immense backlash for raising “FIRST member” prices upwards of 300%.
The list goes on and on… So much so I had to make an entire playlist dedicated to coverage of the misfortunes of Rooster Teeth.
Well, now we have news of “another” potential termination of employee Christina Parrish. This is a strange situation, with a bit of a lack of transparency from some of the parties involved.
Let’s take a look…

Unfortunately, the tweet it is replying to is no longer available…
… This is allegedly the tweet that was deleted however,
Well, the trash fire that is Rooster Teeth seems to still be burning. Some thought the fire would fade in 2020 after how terrible 2019 was for them but so far that does not seem to be the case.
Whatever happens next, we will be there to report on.
If you would like to support Christina’s work, she just launched a Kickstarter for a new project with Ellie Main;
