Activision Blizzard is up to scoundrelly ears in hot water. While top executives like the oversized garden gnome CEO Bobby Kotick will have big buyouts to feed their fat cat bellies (wallets) if the deal goes through, employees who have been calling for Kotick’s resignation for years could be left wanting after the acquisition.
