Blizzard Entertainment Employees Affected By Trump Immigration Ban
Mike Morhaime, CEO of Irvine-basd Blizzard Entertainment, called the Presidential executive order from this weekend an "incredible sharp contrast" from the company's values, in an email leaked to VentureBeat, saying that the company "strives for inclusion, embraces diversity, and treats one another with respect." Marhaime said those values are the "very foundation of what makes not just our company -- but America -- great." The company said that it was providing travel guidance as well as legal assistance and further counseling to a number of employees and their families, who were directly affected by the ban.
