Apparently a consultant back in 2014 was taken on despite warnings of domestic violence, sexual assault and abusive online behaviour. When face with this MM asked for information and many who had dealings with the consultant emailed Mike on their personal experiences with the consultant. Apparently Mike took the view that things were exaggerated or made up only after forwarding the emails to the consultant. Mike of late made a statement that the consultant was only a play tester and that WotC has stopped dealing with him. The consultant known as Zak S has a credit in the PHB as a consultant which is separate to play testers mentioned. Many were upset with Mike trying to low key his part in this and for him failing to take any personal responsibility. His twitter account with the message and the responses is probably more enlightening.Controversy?

Probably less that than he's wary about poking his head up on Twitter. His last tweet got 420 negative replies; that won't go away with his next tweet.It now being mid April and we have not heard from Mike on social media or Twitch since Feb I am guessing that he is under a pretty solid gag order and will only be seen at cons with a tight script.
