Statement issued from Respawn's Vince Zampella.

Respawn's CEO Vince Zampella issued a bit of an apology today after members of the Apex Legends development team called a bunch of toxic ass-hat gamers, well... they called them ass-hats.

Some continued to throw tantrums, others called for boycots, while still others did their best "I studied the blade" impersonation.
