The president and co-founder of Blizzard has become the highest profile games industry figure to speak out against online harassment.

Mike Morhaime dedicated a part of his Blizzcon 2014 opening ceremony speech to slam GamerGaters and urge people to redouble their efforts in trying to promote a friendlier, more welcoming gaming environment.
