We’ve talked a lot about Same Biddle here on TRR. There’s several reasons for this. For one, he’s a really smug motherfucker. It’s hard not to want to punch this guy in the face just from looking at a photo of him, much less hearing him actually speak. Then, he works for Gawker media, one of the most reviled media companies on the entire planet (if not the most reviled). But the real reason I’ve written a lot about him is because he’s responsible for one of my fondest GamerGate memories.

In mid-October 2014, GamerGate was sort of sputtering. The infighting and factionalization that you see today was beginning to rear its ugly head even back then. In a lot of ways, the movement was running out of steam. Then, a gift was given to us all in the form of Mr. Biddle

 

He followed that up with his famous “bring back bullying” catchphrase, which perfectly encapsulated the hypocritical media we were up against…

To be fair, I make fucked up jokes all the time. While this one was certainly offensive to many of my friends and members of the gaming community, I wouldn’t ordinarily care about such a thing. The difference with Biddle and the rest of his SJW-infested ilk is that they want to be moral arbiters for how everyone else should act without upholding any of their own standards when it comes to their personal behavior. They were hypocritical then and they are hypocritical now. Bully Boy Biddle was an issue handed to us on a silver platter, although KingOfPol squandered many of these gains just a few short weeks later with his lies about a supposed leak from Nick Denton, the head of Gawker Media.

But still, this has to be considered one of the most epic wins of the GamerGate era. I mean hell, we cost the company seven-figures, although I suppose it would be more accurate to say that Sam Biddle cost the company seven-figures. Whatever the case may be, I thought it was a good time to take a stroll down memory lane given the fact that Biddle has decided to abandon Gawker for greener pastures over at The Intercept now that the cesspool is drying up.

And according to Recode (which is a shit outlet, but they do understand these types) he is unlikely to be the last one to go…

At the end of the bankruptcy process, which is expected to finish sometime this summer, Gawker Media Group will have a new owner. Until then, expect other Gawker writers to follow Biddle on his way to the exit.

Or, as one Gawker employee put it, “It’s open season on staffers here.”

Where might Gawker people go? Well, many of the biggest and best-known companies (digital and print) already have former Gawker staffers among their ranks, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see BuzzFeed or Recode proprietor Vox Media snap up some more of them.

In case you wanted to catch up on more Biddle bullshit before he leaves Gawker, here’s a handy link parade…

We can only hope that he fucks up bad enough to get shitcanned from The Intercept. I can tell you that I will be here to laugh if and/or when that happens.

  1. Interesting story about that Pastamania photo you used, Ralph. Hogan was offered to be the face of another ‘culinary’ product but he didn’t see any potential in it so another well known athletic celebrity was offered the spot. That product was the George Foreman Grill. Hulk, in an attempt to get another shot, took Pastamania & it bombed.

  2. The idea that buzzfeed or Vox are going to suddenly expand and bring these people on board is probably just wishful thinking from their community. From a business standpoint there’s no reason to bring these fuckers in because they’re just dragging too much baggage. What’s his name the billionaire who bank rolled Hogan’s case is likely to keep looking for avenues to torch ex-gawker employees long after gawker itself is dead. That man is on a lovely crusade.

  3. Naah, the intercept is already showing signs of going down the bitch path, it’ll be gawker itself soon.

        1. He only writes for them.

          …I seem to be the only one who still remembers the time last year when Greenwald was fiercely anti-GG. Drinking their own Kool-Aid, natch.
