Nat Alison@tesseralisI muted so-and-so a long time ago for making a transphobic joke and generally being an asshole bro twitter.com/malchata/statu…04:00 AM - 24 Aug 2019Jeremy Wagner @malchataI'm tired of saying "so-and-so's a good guy", when so-and-so's not given me any reason to believe they actually are, because they refuse to confront and denounce toxic behavior within their own spheres.
- heydonworks described how Ken Wheeler played "the circle game" at a React conference. The circle game gesture is very similar to the "Okay Hand Gesture" that has become a symbol amongst white supremacists. This tweet has since been deleted.
- Tatiana Mac calls out React developers for trying to protect React's integrity rather than listen to its users.
Tatiana Mac@tatianatmacTIL: People care more about protecting the reputation of a **framework** than listening to **multiply marginalised** people that you have actual **white supremacists** in your niche community and our broader community.
I’m not going to ignore that fact; my safety depends on it.14:49 PM - 23 Aug 2019

@email@example.com@heydonworksTo be clear: @ken_wheeler did not throw the white power symbol at React Rally just recently. I misunderstood. There was a discussion AT this React Rally about his previous behaviour. I was wrong, and have done my best to clarify, and have now deleted that tweet.01:44 AM - 25 Aug 2019

Dan Abramov@dan_abramovI’m sorry for disappearing for the last few days. I’ve been getting progressively more anxious over the weekend. I’m of no use to this community in that state.
I feel much better now, and I’m here to listen. As always, my DMs are open. I will post more soon.12:55 PM - 27 Aug 2019
