Ex-BioWare Dev Mocks TotalBiscuit’s Passing, Current BioWare GM Responds
It was learned earlier this week that John Bain, best known as TotalBiscuit, had passed away at the age of 33. The game critic was certainly outspoken and provided plenty of hot takes on the industry at large, but he was a massive force in the community. While family, friends, and fans around the world were mourning the loss of TotalBiscuit, some people were perfectly okay with him passing, including one particular ex-BioWare dev.
David Crooks, the ex-BioWare employee in question, took to Twitter to celebrate TotalBiscuit’s passing. The tweet have since been deleted, his ridiculous spew of hate was captured before being scrubbed from his account. Here’s how his disgusting rant begins:
When someone starts a Twitter rant like seen above, we all know some rather hurtful things are to come. That’s what Crooks did – he went on to express his hatred for the late game critic. It’s one thing to not be a fan of someone, but to openly attack them after they’ve passed away is just downright disrespectful.
The whole rant can be seen right here, but be warned that it can be a bit upsetting. All of this, of course, prompted current BioWare GM Casey Hudson to issue a statement regarding the ex-BioWare dev’s comments. Here’s what Hudson had to say:
I was extremely disappointed to find out about the comments on the passing of John Bain (@Totalbiscuit) from someone who was previously part of BioWare. Let me be clear that they don’t represent BioWare’s views, EA’s, or my own. Our condolences go out to John and his family.

It might be safe to say that many people feel that same disappointment. It’s worth noting that it’s okay to not like someone. Publicly calling them out after they’ve passed away, however… probably not a wise decision.
