[Image:]Another instance of misogyny in pokerPoker suffered a setback this past week as it was forced to reckon with yet another instance of overt misogyny within the community. Appearing on a twitch stream last Friday, Americas Cardroom CEO Phil Nagy made a number of crude sexual comments, the worst of which was directed at poker streamer “WeePro83.”his mea culpa was not enough for some commentatorsNagy has apologized profusely both publicly and privately, but in the days that followed, his mea culpa was not enough for some commentators who called for players and media who had been vocal about other instances of misogyny to speak out now against Nagy and his actions. go188 Nagy’s comments were beyond the paleLast Saturday, poker player Ruben Costa issued a statement about his standing as an ACR Twitch streamer via Twitter:I am no longer going to be a member of the @ACRSTormers They have treated me well and there are a lot of nice people involved with the program.I'm sure most of you know why I don't want to be part of it anymore if you were around this evening, I refuse to be disrespectedgl— Ruben (@wugwugwugwug) June 12, 2021The following day, his girlfriend, known as “WeePro83” online, explained that she would not be taobao online Best Online Casino playing her Sunday session on ACR, for which she had sold action.My apologies to the investors, but I’ll be sending out refunds for today’s package as I am unable play the schedule. Sorry for the last minute cancellation ?— WeePro83?? (@WeePro83) June 13, 2021Th India Football Predictions Site e couple was reacting to a deeply troubling incident on Friday night when ACR CEO Phil Nagy made numerous off-color remarks on a Twitch livestream. While the vibe of the stream was undoubtedly rowdy and full of adult humor, there were no excuses for Nagy’s comments.For a start, this was not a private chat between friends. It was streamed for a live audience. Second, there was an imbalance of power of which Nagy should have been cognizant. Third, Nagy’s specific comments were beyond the pale and overstepped the line of decency within the context of a bunch of friends drunk chatting, let alone when you factor in the power dynamic.Nagy was profusely apologetic afterwardNagy immediately responded with a full-throated apology to Costa on Twitter:Boy I can’t express what a POS I feel like no am I make fun of the people I like but never ever want to hurt anyone. Ruben I was out of line and apologize but if you never respond I will respect that as well. You have my respect and apology. I’m so sorry.— Phillip Nagy (@WPN_CEO) June 13, 2021He also reacted to comments in the thread, expressing contrition:Ya I crossed the line scratch that I just should have been punched in the face. GG and wish there was something I could do to make it right .— Phillip Nagy (@WPN_CEO) June 13, 2021Poker pro Melissa Schubert added her voice to the thread, alluding to a culture of inappropriate comments. Again, Nagy offered no excuses or defense for his behavior.You are correct.— Phillip Nagy (@WPN_CEO) June 13, 2021It was clear that Nagy felt deeply sorry for what he had said to people he regarded as friends, saying: “Ruben is such a good guy and I feel lower than a snakes belly.”Nagy’s response different from Dan Bilzerian’sIn the days since Nagy’s mea culpa, Twitter has been abuzz with debate about what happened. There was no dispute about the wrongness of what he said, but the aftermath was different to other high profile examples of bad behavior.Nagy owned his bad behavior in its entirety and sought forgivenessUnlike past instances of misogyny, there were no denials, no prevar taobao soccer ication, no whataboutism, and no excuses. Nagy owned his bad behavior in its entirety and sought forgiveness from those that he had offended and hurt. His out-of-line remarks were made publicly and he apologized publicly.When Bilzerian directed gross comments at Vanessa Kade last December, there was no acknowledgement and one would suspect that the GGPoker pro meant every word and would say as much again. His fellow ambassadors rallied behind him and the company went out of its way to punish the person who he demeaned.When Nagy directed gross comments at WeePro83, he said he was sorry and ambassadors who represent his company spoke out against his behavior. Kade issued a statement on her Twitter feed, addressing the matter in detail:I am going to take a day to think about this situation more thoroughly.— Vanessa Kade (@VanessaKade) June 15, 2021A teachable instanceResponding to Kade and her defense against insinuations of hypocrisy, Matt Berkey attempted to parse the different elements in her statement with a Twitter thread of his own:It's not that you're expected to defend, nor pay the penance, for ACR's actions. But rather you're expected to be consistent w/your vocal moral stance against misogyny. You earned a spotlight, both in speaking out & in shining bright on the felt, w/it comes higher standards (3/3)— Matt Berkey (@berkey11) June 16, 2021To summarize, Kade has clearly and consistently condemned the actions of her boss. She does, however, believe that Nagy intended no malice by his comments, awful as they were. That is her judgment call, but she has backed it up by saying that she would tolerate no further transgressions and would no longer represent ACR if anything resembling this happened again.Regardless, the knives seem to be out for Kade, despite the fact that yesterday, Costa took to Twitter to explain his side of things fully and to let people know that he has accepted Nagy’s apology:(11/?) I don't know what else to say, the whole thing has snowballed I will take any and all questions— Ruben (@wugwugwugwug) June 15, 2021This is a teachable moment for poker. In the latest episode of The Lock-In, host Dara O’Kearney pointed out that for days we watched a hangdog Phil Nagy groveling for forgiveness. That’s the CEO of a major poker operator doing what many other powerful figures ought to have done but have not. It’s a potent moment, not just because there is collective catharsis in witnessing a public act of contrition and genuine desire for atonement, but also because it will serve a taobao against taobao correct score s a deterrent to others.A watershed moment?In the days that followed, WeePro83 and Ruben Costa understandably took a few days to digest what had happened. Yesterday, WeePro83 also broke her silence on Twitter, asking for onlookers and commentators to point their ire and upset in the right direction:I ? agree with this post! Something that @WPN_CEO did the day after the stream was contact me and @wugwugwugwug DIRECTLY to apologize and ask how this wrong could be made right. People are out here on social media targeting the wrong people for the wrong reasons.— WeePro83?? (@WeePro83) June 15, 2021That specific sentiment was shared by Costa…I was not pressured/coerced and certainly not paid to back peddle I spent many hours recalling the events of Friday and deduced intent was not malicious Stop using this situation to further whatever agenda you haveYou know who you are but I don’t care enough to tag you— Ruben (@wugwugwugwug) June 16, 2021…and Ike Haxton:People giving @VanessaKade a hard time over the Phil Nagy situation are so full of shit.No one is genuinely upset about her present conduct. It's about punishing her for having been vocal in the past by insisting she forevermore maintain some bizarre standard of consistency.— Isaac Haxton (@ikepoker) June 16, 2021One hopes that means that lessons have been learned and all parties are able to move on in a healthy way. This might seem overly optimistic, but I actually believe that this could be a watershed moment for poker. This indefensible and ugly occurrence is holding a mirror up to the community but it may, rather bizarrely, become the catalyst for real change. Poker writer Jen Newell agrees:Damn, poker. I think there's progress and we're slowly (agonizingly slowly) moving toward a more inclusive and aware community, BOOM.— Jennifer Newell (@WriterJen) June 15, 2021
