G4 TV Senior Vice President Blair Herter, who was previously a host on the network’s Attack of the Show! and X-Play programs, told gamers to not watch G4 following Frosk’s now infamous rant about sexism in gaming.
In the middle of January, during X-Play’s “The Airing of Gaming Grievances” segment, Frosk stated, “In joining G4 I was ecstatic to be part of something I grew up watching as a child, but every time G4 is brought up in various channels, even in this YouTube channel, we have the chat in front of us, I can see you, without a doubt, there will be backlash because I am not as bangable as the previous hosts.”
“It has somehow been expected that you can talk about how much you jerked off to women as a compliment,” she continued. “It’s not a compliment. It’s dehumanizing, and it’s weird. Women do not exist to be nice on the eyes for you. Morgan Webb, Olivia Munn, did not exist to be nice on the eyes for you.”
Frosk then stated, “And that’s just obvious sexism. You don’t need to explicitly objectify women or declare that you hate women to be sexist. Just go check out Thorin’s latest meltdown on Twitter for some Spark Notes.”
