Well, if there's one person who can sort out GamerGate it could well be Ice-T.

Law & Order spin off series Special Victims Unit will next month feature an episode entitled Intimidation Game” that sees a female game developer endure a torrent of online abuse and an assault at a games conference.

Here's the blurb, as reported by Kotaku:
