Overwatch Fans Are Attacking Brigitte’s Voice Actor Because They Dislike The Character

In case you didn’t know, Overwatch‘s Brigitte isn’t exactly the most-loved character in the game. Lots of Overwatch players think that the whole GOATS thing is tired, and Brigitte – a support/tank hybrid – is the target of a lot of their anger.

Unfortunately, it’s not just Brigitte who’s bearing the brunt of the hatred in the community – it’s even spread as far as her voice actor, Matilda Smedius, who obviously has no control over what Blizzard has designed the character to be.

Smedius recently tweeted her disdain over the trouble the Brigitte-haters are causing her right now, as she posted a response to a claim that Brigitte “destroyed Overwatch and the meta.”

She wrote: “It just makes me so confused as to why someone would send me this kind of message. Like, FINE, if you feel like one character destroyed a whole game, you have the right to think so, but maybe give constructive criticism to the developers instead of harassing the voice actor.”

She then went on to upload a video on the controversy, thanking her fans for their support and giving her opinion on the “DeleteBrig” hashtag.

She confessed: “[the harassment] hurts and it makes me sad. And I know, I should’ve known about this whole thing when I said yes to doing Brigitte. This is just what comes out of having a huge following. But it still hurts.”

I can’t believe I have to say this, but please don’t bully actors because you don’t like their characters…
