Only hours ago, sexual assault allegations began hitting the internet, with posts suggesting Malka made "unwanted sexual advances against an individual", reports US Gamer. The moderation and admin members of NeoGAF sided with the victim, stepping down from the site, forcing it to shutdown. NeoGAF users were also protesting the site, and its owner, before the plug was pulled.

 

NeoGAF is reportedly preparing a statement that we'll update the article with when it happens. This is big news, as NeoGAF is one of the largest gaming communities online, with a heap of breaking news and content flowing from the site over the years.
