A former CEO of a video game software company said he considered taking his own life after he was ousted for his tweet praising Texas’ abortion ban.

John Gibson, video game developer and former CEO of Tripwire Interactive, spoke to Fox Nation’s ‘tucker carlson today‘ this week about suffering ‘social terrorism’ at the hands of his co-workers when he shared his views on the social platform last year.

gibson had tweeted his approval of the US Supreme Court decision affirming the Texas Heartbeat Law, which went into effect in September 2021, prohibiting abortions at the time a fetal heartbeat is detected.

In the days after the tweet, Gibson said he came under harsh criticism from his co-workers and was ultimately fired as the company’s CEO.

Former Tripwire Interactive CEO John Gibson told Fox Nation’s ‘Tucker Carlson Today’ he considered taking his own life after he was ousted for praising Texas’ ‘heartbeat’ abortion ban.

“Words can hardly express how crushed I was,” he told Tucker Carlson this week, adding that things got even worse after he was fired from the company.

I got depressed. I became, of course, angry, suicidal, not wanting to leave the house,” Gibson said. “He destroyed me, and I have lived through 13 months of hell.”

He told Carlson what he had previously revealed to his wife: “I just want to die because I don’t want to live… I don’t want to live in a world that is so unfair.”

Gibson had been with the company he founded for more than 20 years and explained that it strove to make both the public and its employees happy. But he said he faced harsh criticism from coworkers he had worked with for so long.

“I call it social terrorism,” he said. “It’s an effort to use fear and intimidation to make people change, either to hide or to pretend that they are not who they really are, so that they can keep their jobs and maintain their status.”

The Texas Heartbeat Law, which went into effect on September 1, 2021, not only prohibits abortions at the time a fetal beat is detected, but also allows anyone to file lawsuits against doctors who perform abortions or those who help women to abort.

A few days after it went into effect, Gibson tweeted his support for the law.

‘Proud that the US #SupremeCourt upholds Texas law banning abortion for babies with a heartbeat. As an entertainer, I don’t get political often. However, with so many vocal peers on the other side of this issue, I felt it was important to put myself on the record as a pro-life game developer.

Gibson Tweeted His Approval Of The Us Supreme Court'S Decision Affirming The Texas Heartbeat Act, Which Went Into Effect In September 2021.

In the days after the tweet, Gibson said he came under harsh criticism from his co-workers and was ultimately fired as the company’s CEO.

He Told Carlson What He Had Previously Revealed To His Wife:

He told Carlson what he had previously revealed to his wife: “I just want to die because I don’t want to live… I don’t want to live in a world that is so unfair.”

Shipwright Studios, a joint game development company that has worked with Tripwire, responded to the tweet: “With a clear conscience, we cannot continue to work with Tripwire under the current leadership structure.”

Gibson’s own company later announced on its website that he would no longer be CEO and that his statement does not reflect the company’s values.

Gibson added that there were others at the company who held similar views to his on abortion, but noted that there was only one woman who was “quite a bit older” who openly opposed how Gibson was being treated.

‘They are afraid to speak. They don’t want to be next,’ she said. ‘I had one of the other owners of the company – politically we are very, very aligned. He believes cancel culture is bad. He thinks that abortion is bad. And he said, “Yeah, I don’t want to get canceled on my next one.”
