Hundreds of Activision Blizzard employees sign petition demanding Bobby Kotick’s removal

The pressure on Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick continues to grow, as more than 800 employees and contractors have signed a petition calling for his resignation.

The petition comes two days after more than 150 Activision Blizzard employees staged a walkout demanding Kotick’s removal, and one day after a shareholder group issued its own call for his resignation, along with that of the company’s chair of the board and lead independent director. The demands were made in the wake of a bombshell Wall Street Journal report alleging that Kotick was aware of incidents of sexual harassment and abuse at the company, and actually threatened to have an assistant killed in 2006.
