Devin Faraci, Anti-#GamerGate Critic Apologizes For Committing Sexual Assault
Devin Faraci

[Update 10/11/2016:] Devin Faraci has announced that he’s stepping down as editor-in-chief from Birth.Movies.Death due to the sexual assault allegations.

[Original article:] A fervent critic of #GamerGate, a movement centered around restoring ethics in media journalism, has recently apologized for committing an act of sexual assault. Devin Faraci, the editor-in-chief at Birth.Movies.Death, recently took to Twitter to “beg forgiveness” and apologize for a sexual assault incident.

A Twitter user going by the handle of of spacecrone, wrote about the incident after Trump’s tape went viral where he made lewd comments about women. She reflects on a run-in with Devin Faraci, stating in a series of tweets

“[Devin Faraci] quick question: do you remember grabbing me by the pussy and bragging to our friends about it, telling them to smell your fingers?


“[…] sitting here trying to remember if a man had ever grabbed me by the vagina against my will and, well, yes, a popular Twitter feminist!


“Literally stuck his hands down my pants at a bar while I told him to stop, then told our friends he had ‘fingerbanged me’ I’ve avoided making that public for over a decade but I guess my rage at trump has uncasked the Gorgon in me.”


“It’s not just your Trumps or your Republicans, it’s your friendly neighborhood film critics and twitter feminists. I don’t really care if he apologizes, mostly tweeting in solidarity with every person who has ever been grabbed by the pussy […] Or otherwise violated and then had to see that person posture as a feminist on social media or anywhere.”

After the tweets were made public, Devin Faraci responded with the following via Twitter.

Neither of the two name a date or place where it may have happened, but Spacecrone is located in New York while Faraci is in Los Angeles, California. Regardless of the location, according to New York Penal Law § 130.52 under the “Forcible touching” sub-section, it states…

“A person is guilty of forcible touching when such person intentionally, and for no legitimate purpose, forcibly touches the sexual or other intimate parts of another person for the purpose of degrading or abusing such person;  or for the purpose of gratifying the actor’s sexual desire.


“For the purposes of this section, forcible touching includes squeezing, grabbing or pinching.”

Forcible touching is a misdemeanor in the state of New York, and is classified as a “sexual offense” under the state statues, which you can view over on Find Law.

So if the meeting between the two took place in New York at the time, Faraci could be hit with a sexual offense misdemeanor.

In California, according to penal code 243.4 section (e) and sub-section (1) on the official state government website, it clearly states…

“ Any person who touches an intimate part of another person, if the touching is against the will of the person touched, and is for the specific purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification, or sexual abuse, is guilty of misdemeanor sexual battery, punishable by a fine not exceeding two thousand dollars ($2,000),”

In this case, what Faraci allegedly did would fall under a sexual assault, abuse or battery misdemeanor depending on where the event took place.

Previously, Faraci had attacked #GamerGate, stating that it was about harassing Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian, and claiming that he had more respect for ISIS.

These comments accompanied various articles published by Faraci attacking #GamerGate, writing one piece on August 31st, 2014 and another on October 15th, 2014, both attacking the consumer revolt against the media. In one section of the October 15th piece, Faraci writes…

“GamerGate isn’t about ethics. It’s about stopping women from having voices, it’s about keeping progressive ideas out of games and it’s about attacking any kind of game that doesn’t fit the mainstream, shoot-em-up vision of video games these deeply emotionally stunted people have.”

It turns out that #GamerGate is about ethics, and the Federal Trade Commission has used more than 50 pages worth of #GamerGate material in their continued investigation into Gawker. #GamerGate was also responsible for pressuring the FTC to update their guidelines regarding endorsements and disclosures, particularly surrounding video games; and the movement has been involved with getting websites to update their ethics and disclosure policies, the latest of which was

I reached out to Devin Faraci for comment, which is the second time within the span of a month – the previous time was regarding his site promoting Crash Override Network, which turned out to engage in harassment and doxing – but as of the publishing of this article, I have not received a response.

This is yet another case of an anti-#GamerGate journalist and critic being involved in some form of sexual misconduct, with a previous critic, Matt Hickey, running a catfishing scam through a fake porno agency in order to have sex with unsuspecting women.  In another case one of the Crash Override Network anti-abuse support specialists was involved with sexually harassing multiple women.

[Update 10/9/2016 6:31pm:] In a short Twitter update Tim League, has ordered Faraci offline as they investigate the matter.

    Funny that’s it’s mostly anti GG people who are the real creepers.

  • An Honest Opinion

    Nice write up. I didn’t know about that Matt Hickey guy, either.

    I’ll play devil’s advocate here and say “What if Devin actually didn’t do it?”. He said he doesn’t remember doing it yet immediately apologized for it. What if it wasn’t him, but someone else who did it?

    Did anyone else come forward who was there? If he said “smell my fingers” or whatever, where are the people he said this to? Are they actually going to validate the story, or keep quiet “cause GamerGate”?

    He’d either have to be drunk off his ass to forget doing something like that, or such a scumbag that doing it is par for the course and he genuinely forgot.

    • He said he doesn’t remember doing it yet immediately apologized for it. What if it wasn’t him, but someone else who did it?

      That’s a possibility. I’m more-so wondering why he wouldn’t speak up about it if it did happen to be someone else, though? I can’t ever imagine taking the fall for something that vile if I knew or had an inkling that someone else was responsible for that incident.

      If he said “smell my fingers” or whatever, where are the people he said
      this to? Are they actually going to validate the story, or keep quiet
      “cause GamerGate”?

      Technically this could have happened involving people who may not even be social media types, so corroborating or debunking the story is a complete toss-up at this point. Putting himself under a lens of guilt makes it where it doesn’t matter, though, which is an odd position to take if Faraci really is innocent.

  • Alistair

    Each day a piece of UK dies, new stupid guidelines about trolling that consider rather verge, what consider trolling being sarcastic, calling people nasty names, stating the bloody obviously etc etc.

    1 thing of the new guidelines they got right is doxxing yup that’s right doxxing is against the law. So you better watch out CON.

    Some other guidelines are just frills, because if sexting become unlawful & it is then underage will A. Pay a fine or B. Go to jail.

    This of course is further attack of freedom of speech & expression. Our human rights. Anything that consider hurtful but cut short of rape/death threats & your faith gender that against the law anyways should be allow.

  • SiliconNooB

    He’s too low energy to pull it off!

  • Ebalosus

    I find this quite karmic, given that he blamed me and my friends in #RetakeMassEffect for deliberately starting GG.

  • Oh this is rich!

  • Alistair

    Today let do a little experiment, & search Mainstream media outlets on this story. & see if we can find any.

  • Bobcat665

    The way I look at it:
    Sure, because of legal, political and social tradition, Devin is entitled to reasonable doubt, due process, presumption of innocence before guilt is proven; blah-blah, woof-woof, yadda-yadda…

    BUT, at the same time, I wouldn’t put this kind of thing past him. There *IS* documented proof that he is a perve- NO, he’s not sophisticated and versed enough in social graces to be rightfully called a “pervert”; he’s a flat-out PIG and he deserves to be nailed to the wall for this. He’s a self-righteous hypocrite and his fall from grace is LONG overdue.

  • Ben (Broken)

    Be nice if Jen would at least come forward and confirm whether or not she was just posting a “hypothetical” or that Devin actually forcefully touched her “down yonder”. As much as the sight of Devin gives me the creeps, I don’t think he assaulted Jennifer. Seemed more like she was just trying to “make a point” about jumping Trump’s shit over something so trivial.

    • If it’s a hypothetical, why did he beg forgiveness for it? No one who is innocent would beg forgiveness for something they didn’t do.

      • Ben (Broken)

        See man, that is what fucks with my head too. And even if he can’t remember doing it to Jen,did he do it to some other poor lass? Either that or it seems like he’s often too drunk & drugged up to remember his daily life.

        There is probably a level of cuckery where the mere presence of a woman sends them into profuse apologies for the alleged oppression women have endured at the hands of Y chromosome since the beginning of the galaxy.

  • Nanya

    Goony bearded man who claims GamerGate is bad is proven to be a hypocrite who projects his faults onto others.

  • StrongStyleFiction

    The accusation may be bullshit, but it seems Faraci can’t wait to start nailing himself to the cross and martyr himself before the progressive god. Death cult mentality. It is flowing through the regressive left.

    If there was any justice or karma this guy would have been fired or punished a long time ago.

Bring no more vain offerings; incense is an abomination to me. New moon and Sabbath and the calling of convocations— I cannot endure iniquity and solemn assembly. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates; they have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them.

  • C G Saturation

    Another one, huh. The ones jumping to defend females loudest are the ones who think females are so beneath them that they need their defending. Then they grope and rape them.

  • Meittimies

    Quite disturbing how safe spaces have proven out to be filled with sexual predators. They flock to them like fleas.

    • C G Saturation

      Because only idiots vulnerable as shit need safe spaces. They’re advertising themselves as ripe for the picking.

      • Exactly. Predators see a safe space as an orchard of virgin depravity.

    • Alistair

      And it even funnier that the same groups saying gamers are sexist, misogyny & peodos that like Japanese culture.

      Are themselves the very things they dislike the most.

      But he a male that he supported women feminists a SJW, a one of their own. Will swiftly make a example of him & throw him to the wolves.

    • SiliconNooB

      As if the cult of Social Justice wasn’t already enough like the Church! ^_^

  • Alistair

    he the one who compare gamers as IS. The mainstream media of course are not covering this. But they are focused on YouTubers.

    Another batch of lunarcy.

    • Der

      >That service is now racist against white people and sexist towards men

      Luciferians fer ya.

  • Hawk Hopper

    Witnesses will be all those Faraci told that he “finger banged” her. He also, supposedly, went around trying to get them to smell his fingers.

    If there this did happen, there are people who might remember that stuff, and they might have even seen it go down.

  • giygas

    While I won’t deny the fact that Faraci is totally batshit or the possibility that he did do the deed, the accusation is likely bullshit. But like a good little feminist, he’ll Listen and Believe™. Might as well rub his nose in it while we can.

    • Hawk Hopper

      If this did happen, she really needs to contact the authorities.

      And it’s really interesting that they would accuse someone in their cult to be a rapist.

      • this is a name

        i doubt any of this could be proven without reasonable doubt

        unless faraci goes to the judge and says “i dont remember any of this but im a feminist cuck so i believe her throw me in jail pls” which would be one of the funniest things ever

        • Hawk Hopper

          Supposedly, he went around telling people about it and trying to get them to smell his fingers.

          If it did happen, there would be people who would remember stuff like that and they might have even seen it happen.

          But if it did happen, she needs to go to the police.

      • giygas

        Being a member of the regressive death cult won’t protect one from it, it’ll only delay the attacks.

    • Tehy

      I’m honestly not sure that he did do it. But who cares? The big story is that he’s been accused and admitted, not whether or not he did it.

      • giygas

        Exactly. Personally I value the principle of innocent until proven guilty. That said, through their own actions towards others, the regressives have demonstrated how they wish to be treated. I have no qualms with obliging them and hoisting the bastards onto their own petard.

      • Of course I have seen many feminist say that you should be inclined to believe the woman if she accuses a man of sexual assault so I suppose as good progressive folk we should apply that logic here. 😀

    • durka durka

      i clicked that link and looked at her face and the description, sounds like a troll, looks like a troll, must be a troll, but good feminist gimp apologized just to be safe.

      Fuck, FUUUUUCK……when i saw the article i was like “HAHAHHA I KNEW IT, THIS FUCKING GUY, HOPE HIS SITE GOES TO SHIT”…… no i kinda feel sorry for this no life jackass.

  • Mr.Towel

    Ironic that the Anti-GG side has so many sexual offenders… Projection much?

    • I think that’s exactly what’s happened over the last few years. All the “GG is harassers” is just them projecting their inner most desires while pretending to be conscientious to hide their own immoral misbehavior.

      • C G Saturation

        I get the impression that politicians are often notorious for that. Anti-gays who have orgies with young boys, etc. They probably set an example for everyone else to follow.

        Part of the problem is people are so gullible that they seem to often automatically believe that the person accusing can’t be guilty of the crime themselves.
