Daniel Vavra, the creative director on Warhorse Studios’ Kingdom Come: Deliverance, recently cancelled an appearance at a Spanish gaming convention called Gamelab.

Spanish website One More Game chronicles the events that led to the cancellation, which was confirmed by Ivan Fernandez, the founder of Game Lab, on May 21st, 2018.

The “serious insults” were spurred on by feminist activist and Spanish Buzzfeed journalist, who spread around the falsehoods that Daniel Vavra was a Nazi.

The tweets originally went out on May 16th, 2018, where it was stated that Daniel Vavra is “openly racist” and that he’s “macho” and a “GamerGate defender”. The second tweet chain states that feminists don’t want Nazis at the Gamelab event.

Daniel Vavra did respond to the attacks, stating that he’s of Jewish heritage.

As pointed out by Spanish artist Kukuruyo, the Buzzfeed employee also promotes anti-male agendas, oftentimes referred to as misandry.

A clearer photo of the image showcases that there are shirts being spread around the Buzzfeed Spain circles that states “Men ‘R Trash”.

The issue managed to gain some widespread attention in English speaking circles thanks to Kukuruyo making a post about the issue over on Kotaku in Action, where he explained that Gamelab would be hosting anti-gaming activists on the panel such as Rami Ismail from Vlambeer and Leigh Alexander, and that when certain people found out that Daniel Vavra had been invited, they began their campaign to smear him publicly within the Spanish tech and gaming circles.

GameLab 2018 will still happen, and it will feature appearances from Amy Hennig, Jason Roberts, and Shawn Layden. The conference will take place between June 27th and June 29th at the Hotel Hosperia Tower in Barcelona, Spain. For more info you can visit the official website.
