It seems like popular gaming publishers Activision Blizzard can’t seem to stay out of trouble. The company faces more issues, with the most recent being a lawsuit from many of its employees. The lawsuit filed with the National Labor Relations Board claims that the company has followed unfair labor practices for union busting and many more.
With the issue coming to light, gaming fans couldn’t help but laugh at Activision Blizzard for falling into another troublesome ditch. Some fans took to Twitter to voice their opinions about their situation. However, many others saw this as an opportunity to mock the iconic publishers.

This is the second time this year that the company has been at the receiving end of a major lawsuit.

Activision is trying way too hard to make people forget the awful things they’ve done. And I seriously hate how they’re constantly using Crash Bandicoot as a shield for their misdeeds. https://t.co/gIFf6SrKOc
