Microsoft Executive Watches ‘VR Porn’ In Front Of Staff

Microsoft executive and VR chief Alex Kipman reportedly watched “VR Porn” in front of his staff, according to a report by Insider. The incident involved Kipman watching a “sexy pillow fight” between lingerie clad women infront of several staff members, who were able to see the footage on a screen in the room.

According to one staff member, the incident made the group “incredibly uncomfortable” and caused two people to walk out.

This is not the first time the company has been under fire for misconduct. Former Microsoft CEO and founder Bill Gates was accused of lying on a woman at an 1988 company event, sending inappropriate messages and emails to a female staff member in 2007 and having an affair with a Microsoft staffer.

Current CEO Satya Nadella said in 2014 to crack down on the toxic culture at Microsoft, and last year, said that “the Microsoft of 2021 is very different from the Microsoft of 2000.”

However, the Insider report suggests that higher up staff that are considered the “golden boys” are often excused for their behaviour, Kipman included. Employees last year filed a report against Kipman that disclosed dozens of misconduct allegations against him, but Microsoft seemed to turn a blind eye.

An ex-Microsoft executive told Insider that “When they are golden, nothing can be done against them,”

“The person believes they are untouchable and can do anything they want. You might as well swallow the abuse.”

When Insider reached out to Microsoft for comment on the accusations, the company eventually responded saying it had no knowledge of the incident or any reports.

“Every reported claim we receive is investigated, and for every claim found substantiated there is clear action taken,” the company said. “This disciplinary action can range from termination, to demotion, loss of pay or bonus, official reprimand, mandatory training, coaching, or combination of some of these.”
