Riot Games – Developer refuses to fire COO Scott Gelb despite multiple sexual harassment claims

Riot Games was in the spotlight before for its toxic work culture, especially highlighted by its practices which drove out many female employees. Recently, it was revealed by Kotaku that the company’s COO, Scott Gelb, was a senior executive who “participated in “ball-tapping” (flicking or slapping testicles), farting on employees or humping them for comedic effect.” Despite confirming his misdeeds, Riot Games has only suspended him for 2 months without pay and preparing to send him for training to improve his workplace behavior.
