The Bully Hunters were a team of profoundly retarded feminist moralfags hosted by Natalie "Nati" Casanova, aka ZombiUnicorn, aka Titty Streamer, who was unable to understand the concept that video games are generally immature activities aimed at younger audiences and as such put it upon themselves to put an end to online virtual lulz by attacking innocent children who just want to have fun through a hitman bullying service. Fortunately, it is a universal truth that feminist cunts suck ass at doing fun things, and had been completely owned during their policing of the internetz, and decided that, rather than playing fairly, it would be a good idea to stage matches to make themselves look good. Because nobody was ever going to find out right?
Of course, it just turned out to be a marketing campaign for their
client creator SteelSeries to sell Bully Hunters branded SteelSeries headsets to make money and donate to rich Kikewood celebrities from Time's Up Now, and within a matter of days, the whole thing was memory-holed as though it never happened. Unfortunately for them, the internet never forgets. We never forget.

On April 11th, 2018, a promotional video concerning the "Bully Hunters" was posted, along with a website and mission statement, the latter of which has been gracefully copypasta'd into the story below:
The website in question, as can be observed in the top right (and also through this archive link), was a painfully corporate attempt at mimicking Anonymous that made the so-called "bullies" out to be political criminals and the "Bully Hunters" to be an all-encompassing Feminist Internet Defense Force. Obviously the above was written with the concept of hindsight entirely out of mind, considering this was produced either on or prior to the day the campaign commenced and as a very short amount of time would tell, not last anywhere near long enough to be of any use. One wonders if the whole thing was designed to fail in the first place.
Because this wouldn't be enough in this day and age to get the message across, even with copious spending on Jewtube adspace, various video game journalism websites were soon astroturfed by paid shills backed by the financiers behind the campaign, in order to spread word among the masses. From PCGamer, one of the first to cover this story:
To show the world what would turn out to be one of the most failtastic events of the year, a stream was announced for 7PM EST on the very next day. It should be noted that even during this time, many suspected that the events that would transpire on the 12th would be staged, considering the fact that there were rehearsals conducted one day prior. They weren't wrong.
On Thursday evening, somewhat true to their word (though as true as they'll be), the stream that would end up breaking the whole operation went online. Reception to the stream was overwhelmingly negative, and rightfully so. Viewers were keen to point out that not even the level used for the demonstration was the same. Matters were made worse when it was similarly revealed that both the "bully" and the "Bully Hunter" belonged to the same account, and furthermore, just about every aspect of the stream itself lacked authenticity, from empty chairs to recycled audio clips. And if that wasn't enough, moderation on the stream itself was lax, and due to Streisanding the hell out of their bullshit "cause" without a single pause for respite, filled with trolls from just about every imageboard with a sizable userbase who were sure to show their appreciation through the use of Copypasta and Ascii art, thus derailing any meaningful conversation that may have transpired during the stream.
Rejection by Target Audience
It is evident that the target audience of this stream were the areas of Reddit filled with swarms of Downy leftist crybabies e.g. Shit Reddit Says. However, even they took negatively to both the concept and the execution of said concept, basically leaving the group without a paddle. When you somehow manage to alienate your existing customer base, in addition to producing a campaign that was simply too faggy even for the people who live for that kind of shit, you know you've fucked up.
CyberPowerPC were the first sponsor to leave, doing so on late Friday night, just over a day following the stream.
Vertagear were next, leaving during the early hours of Saturday.
Diverse Gaming Coalition
A short while later, the Diverse Gaming Coalition abandoned the cause unceremoniously, leaving only two. With one of these sponsors being the recipient charity for the BullyHunters operation, it becomes fairly obvious who was behind it all.
SteelSeries Is Revealed as The Campaign Originators
With every other sponsor having jumped ship, only one remained; SteelSeries, basically outing them as the campaign originators. Not that this wasn't already common knowledge, mind you, since internet sleuths had already done more than the necessary level of digging to reveal this truth.
Around Saturday evening, barely 3 days after the campaign had started and not even 48 hours since the stream went live, the plug was officially pulled on the Bully Hunters project. After losing the .css stylesheet, the website was soon shut down in its entirety thereafter. Not only that, but the DNS information was wiped, all social media accounts were taken down and aside from the articles, video responses and dilligent documentation of the lulz as they transpired, little evidence remained that the Bully Hunters even existed. Even ZombiUnicorn retreated into the shadows for a while before admitting defeat in a war for which she wasn't even able to claim a single kill, which is quite the achievement in and of itself. All in all, the entire Bully Hunters fiasco has not only gone down as arguably the biggest fail of 2018 (other than Brianna Wu's congressional campaign), but potentially of the whole decade.
Not only is the above image absolute proof that SteelSeries was behind the whole thing, it also reveals where the stream was recorded and who produced all the Bully Hunters-related assets (hint: it wasn't the dumb cunts who formed the failed advertising campaign's face). The stupid fucks responsible left the original file directory information on their finished product, something they could have fixed in 5 seconds through a simple application of "Rename", and in essence digitally snitched on SteelSeries.
JOBS: All jobs undertaken by the firm.
01899_steel_sieres_cannes: This is the key part;
- "01899" is the job number internally assigned by the responsible party, be it FCB Chicago, Total Creative or any other organization.
- "steel_sieres_cannes" is the job description. Typo aside, "steel_sieres" confirms the job was commissioned by SteelSeries, and "cannes" suggests Cannes is where the event took place.
05_graphics: A sorting rule. Usually if you look in this folder you'll see folders like "01_documents", "02_sounds", "03_videos" and so forth. It's an easy way to sort assets you need for the project.
AEP: Adobe After Effects Project file, contains the video composition with all the relevant source files put together.
032918: The latest revision of the files. Translates to 03/29/18, or March 29th, 2018. In other words, two weeks preceding the official "launch".
Steel_Series-Glitch-KC_10.aep: The finalized After Effects Project file. Once again, SteelSeries is directly namedropped, further incriminating what was already a red-handed affair.
By this point, SteelSeries had well and truly been caught with their pants down and their flaccid, circumcized micropenis flapping in the breeze. Not only were they the only company of those originally named to have a product ready upon the campaign's launch, not only were they the last company to remain loyal to the cause after the other three disassociated almost immediately, but they were the only company named on the website's assets, outside of logos. No other company would even try to sidestep their responsibility at this point. Except bizarrely, probably due to the sickening smell of money being burnt, SteelSeries then attempted to claim that they, much like the other three sponsors, were contacted by "Bully Hunters" (despite the organization not even existing in an official capacity prior to the 11th) and were misled. Because of course they were. In other news, the gloves did not fit, he did not inhale and he had no prior knowledge of 9/11.
People involved with Bully Hunters
- FCB Chicago - The ad agency of Bully Hunters who wishes to fight online bullies.
- SteelSeries - The
clientcreator of Bully Hunters. Bought into a phony cause and decided SJWs would be their ideal target market.
- Time's Up Now - A Hollywood celebrity group that doesn't need donation money for their greedy selves.
Le Hive Bar
Remember that part about Cannes earlier? Googling "steel series" and "cannes" together leads you to the Twitter account of Le Hive Bar. Searching the bar's tweets reveals a LAN Party hosted not long before the unveiling of Bully Hunters, and were done so in co-operation with SteelSeries. What's arguably even more damning however, is the fact that none other than one of the bar's employees formed part of the audience:
