Magic: the Gathering World Champion and Hall of Famer Jon Finkel has publicly responded to a recent article by former Gizmodo intern Alyssa Bereznak written to drive advertisement revenue and bashing him for not disclosing the fact that he plays Magic: the Gathering in his online profile.
Jon Finkels response?
“Hi people, I’m Jon Finkel. I went out uneventfully with a girl a couple weeks ago and we never spoke again…Then she posts about how she cant believe I didn’t warn her I was an ex magic world champion, and the internet had issues with that…Even though the post itself didn’t make me look bad at all (at least I didn’t think)…Still, its sort of like someone publishing emails you wrote to your girlfriend, or posting part of your diary – it just feels wrong”
How would you feel if there was a similar article written about you on one of the most visted websites on the internet?
