According to the Wall Street Journal, in order to solve the crisis within the company, Activision Blizzard has fired or fired 37 employees for various reasons since July last year, and punished 44 related people. However, shareholders seem to have an opinion on Activision Blizzard's CEO as well.
Because of the gender discrimination and sexual harassment within the company, Activision Blizzard has been in the media and industry since last year, and several other departments in the United States are also suing about this issue. In reality, however, the problem is not as simple as imagined, and Activision Blizzard is under pressure from shareholders to deal with the allegations against it.
Fidelity International, a British investor with about 0.6 percent of Activision Blizzard, reportedly wrote to the board that it should consider taking Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick on administrative leave while a third party assesses the company's current problems. In addition, Fidelity International called for a more independent board of directors rather than being composed of Activision Blizzard members.
Fidelity International warned that if its concerns are not addressed, the company will divest its stake or "enlist the support of other shareholders."
