Zoe Quinn Violates DC Comics’ Social Media Guidelines To Inveigh Republicans
Goddess Mode
(Last Updated On: July 7, 2018)

After recently signing on as a creator for the upcoming DC Vertigo Comics series Goddess Mode, Zoe Quinn decided to mouth off against Republicans in a series of acerbic tweets.

Bounding Into Comics spotted the series of comments published on June 29th, 2018, where Quinn wrote the following.

This was also followed up with a tweet containing charged language that was directed at White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Back in February of 2018 DC Comics laid out social media guidelines to tow in its staff from getting engaged in hostile slapfights across Twitter or Facebook or other large publicly visible social media services.

The guideline very clearly lays out what not to say or do online to court controversy…

“DC expects that its employees and freelance talent community maintain a high level of professionalism as well as reasonable and respectful behavior when engaging in online activities. Comments that may be considered defamatory, libelous, discriminatory, harassing, hateful, or that incite violence are unacceptable and may result in civil or criminal action. In addition, comments that may be considered insulting, cruel, rude, crass, and mean spirited are against company policy guidelines. We ask, and expect, that you will help to create an online environment that is inclusive, supportive and safe.”

In this case the comments could be considered “insulting”, “cruel”, “rude”, and “crass”.

DC also encourages freelancers and dedicated employees to include mention of working with DC on their social media profiles, but also to clearly indicate that individual comments don’t reflect or represent the company.

Quinn does have the Goddess Mode comic listed in her Twitter profile but does not mention DC Comics.

The comic book company initially rolled out the social media guidelines after a series of Marvel comic book authors and artists began attacking fans for not liking the agenda-driven comic books published by Marvel. Despite the artists getting into heated discussions with fans and attacking them for not liking the comic books, the books still failed to sell and Marvel ended up canceling many of the SJW-themed comic books.

DC used the social media guidelines to prevent their artists, writers and freelancers from becoming embroiled in unnecessary social media drama.
