Channel host Xbox Brazil, Isadora Basile announced on Friday night (16) his resignation by Microsoft.
Isadora assumed the position in September, hired by GMD, agency that is responsible for the production of audiovisual content for the Xbox brand in the country.
Over the past few months, the presenter claimed to have suffered harassment and a series of personal attacks on account of work, including threats of rape and death.
“Due to all these attacks, Microsoft found the best option to shut me down as a presenter, so that I am no longer exposed to situations like these“, wrote in a post on Twitter.
To The Enemy, Isadora said she reported the attacks on Microsoft and GMD, which gave support to “help control the situation”.
“Yes, they always talked to me to calm me down and help control the situation. I blessed myself to see some things, mainly on Twitter, but when I saw something very heavy, I always sent them“he stated.
According to her, however, the resignation was due to a “global team orientation”, that there was no one in charge of the brand in an exhibition that could cause the attacks or threats.
“It’s a feeling of helplessness, right? I embraced the brand with all my heart, did more than necessary and loved my job. I lost my job because people don’t know what respect is“, said.
The Enemy contacted the Xbox advisory in Brazil and we will update with the answer.
[Atualização] To Epic Chat this Thursday (15), The Enemy’s talk show with Lucas Moll, Isadora gave details of the threats she received – and that, according to her, started already in the hiring announcement.
“I already expected that I would receive a ‘heatzinho’, but there are things that happened that I definitely did not expect. A lot of people threatened me with rape, a lot of people threatened me with death, a lot of people saying that I was not worthy of the job I was getting and my job“he stated.
At the end of his speech, Isadora also indicated that he had “very strong support from the brand”, despite the “complicated process”. “Microsoft is a company that cares a lot about women, they always put women ahead, they always protect women in every possible way. They gave me a very good support, I could not wish that this process had been better on their part“, he said. See the full excerpt below:
