That Park Place Responds to Black Girl Gamers’ Cease and Desist Letter

Remember when Black Girl Gamers threatened legal action against The Park Place over its reporting of their hiring practices? They followed through, sending a cease and desist letter through their legal representatives, Morris, Currin & O’Keefe, P.C. You can see a breakdown of their demands in this video. That Park Place and its editor-in-chief, John F. Trent, who is named in the letter, hired the Dhillon Law Group to represent them, with noted and respected attorney Ron Coleman acting as their lawyer.

(I kind of wish they went with Option Number Two, but again, I’m not a lawyer, just a Denny Crane fan.) It’s well worth watching, especially if legal matters interest you – or if you didn’t know that Ron Coleman represented Libs of TikTok, which I didn’t until just now. But I think Grummz, the X handle of former Blizzard producer and current woke consulting firm scourge Mark Kern, may have summed up the response most succinctly, and I think that because Mr. Coleman shared his X post:
