Activision Blizzard apologized for offending people after their Diversity Space Tool sparked backlash for being offensive by reducing diversity to “weird and degrading metrics.”

However, like their initial blog post, the apology drew mixed reactions on social media. For example, one fan urged the developers to organically integrate diverse characters into the story rather than as a means of “fulfilling a quota.”

Another fan advised them to hire more diverse artists rather than make it a mathematical and systematic process. Activision Blizzard edited their blog post to clarify that the tool “isn’t meant to be used in isolation.”
