Following the allegations of sexual harassment from a former employee, Naughty Dog has now been accused of making inappropriate remarks to a reporter in the past.
Reporter Megan Farokhmanesh took it to Twitter and revealed that the studio behind Uncharted and The Last Of Us franchise made some inappropriate remarks to her in the past saying “Tbt to the time a Naughty Dog dev asked me if I “f*** all my sources like on House of Cards” after I introduced myself as a reporter”.
This comes shortly after a former employee, David Ballard, accused Naughty Dog of sexual harassment. Ballard claimed that he was harassed by a lead at the studio.
However, the studio responded to the allegations saying that no such complaint was filed by the former employee. Naughty Dog said in a statement that they have not found any evidence regarding the sexual harassment allegation made by David Ballard.
“We have not found any evidence of having received allegations from Mr. Ballard that he was harassed in any way at Naughty Dog or Sony Interactive Entertainment”.
However, the studio is yet to issue a statement on the accusation of the inappropriate remark made to the reporter.
