    And with her departure we can all hope for 1 good thing to come out of it, the death of the stupid Meg/Ryan fan obsession. Seriously fuckers, even Ray knew when a joke was dead. Also, buy Meg, missed, do good, all that.

    Meg,



    You are an incredibly brave and talented professional, and I and my friends and family are sad to see you go. You ARE one of the strongest and most courageous of people that I can think of. You stand firm against backlash and nastiness with class and propriety; you make others smile with your honesty and good humor; and have inspired many more (including me) to also work hard and stand their ground...and embrace the quirks and oddities of others, and yourself.


    It hurts having to leave something/career you love (hell, I totally cried in the bathroom when it happened to me the first time - and I have no shame in admitting it), but keep in mind that this could mean that there is something much better just around the corner. And whatever it is, no matter the opposition, I am 100% positive that you can overcome it and make it yours. You have the tools, the support, and the spirit to make it through. We'll miss you, but can't wait to see what you can do/where you'll go next. Good luck out there, Miss Turney.


    And remember: if people are trying to stop you, you must be doing something right. ;) Give 'em hell!

      I'm sure Burnie and Matt are aware of how valuable he is to the company and pay him accordingly to make sure he sticks around.

    Tearing up, a bit. In case you're reading this, Meg— I just wanted to say thank you. Thanks for the laughs, and smiles, and news, and all of the terrific things you've been a part of. You've made a thing I love so much lovelier, and you make the Mad King blush. You'll be missed, and I know I'm not alone when I say I'm excited to see what comes next. <3 you.

    Meg, just buy a fake moustache and some glasses (yes, over your other glasses) and you'll fool them into thinking you're someone else. If it works for a turkey, it can work for a Turney :)

    Ahhh man,I feel like this is a side effect of RT' becoming more a corporation and losing their independence. On one hand we get a lot of cool new content ( i don't like or watch all of it but it's mostly a cool thing ) but on the other, we get shit like this. Now to me it looks like Full screen policy lost meg her job ( i would use the world fired ) for doing what she wanted with her own body! Which i think is wrong but that's a moral issue but i think we all agree that this is a loss of a great addition to the RT family, and it always felt like a family ( i'm a mostly silent member lol ) My problem is the corporate trend, lets plays of games that are crap and we know they don't like, one play because they gave them money, meg being fired as well as the old head of animation ( she didn't want to lose her job ) and Ray leaving because he could not stream ( though they do tons of streaming now??) and tons of ads. I think that's all bad but i get that the company needs to make money and i understand that it will change for the small thing we grew up with and growed with. All i'm worried about is they have lost the family spirt and adapted one that puts the bottom line and money first and people ( themselves and us sometimes ) second.

    Has she said what policy she violated? Was she just dedicating too much time to her own work and wasn't filling her hours at RT?

    • Reasarian FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I believe it was her modelling career and the nature of it.

    • YoungBoba FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      11 months ago

      I'm pretty sure she didn't purposefully violate any "policy". Careers (especially younger upcoming people) typically diverge and grow into other things once people start realizing what they're good at and what they like to do. It isn't like she is getting fired. And like they said, she'll be back for the Know and other things. Meg probably gets to work for herself now with her own hours and whatnot.

    Make sure to take note of those links if you love Meg! She's already starting to stream more and her YouTube channel is going to get more regular use now. I was sad but you don't have to be too sad when you realise you can still follow the awesomeness of Meg Turney in her future endeavours.

    Major shade to rooster teeth for firing Meg. People should be more important than the company's bottom line imho.

    For those of you, (such as myself), wondering what happened, Meg explained it a little in a video on her Youtube channel. The gist of it seems to be that there was a conflict between something she'd been doing in her personal life, and the policies within Rooster Teeth itself, that meant she was no longer able to continue being an employee at Roost Teeth. Whether this was because she was forced to make a decision between the two, and chose to leave Rooster Teeth, or was simply let go because her actions outside of the company, is not stated. However, while I am simply a fan and not an authority on the matter, from my understanding of the situation, no one is to blame for this whether it be Meg herself, Rooster Teeth, or RT's parent company Full Screen. It was simply the result of evolving policies having conflicted with the evolving personal life of an employee, and Meg is parting with RT in the best terms she possibly can, and will continue to work with them in what capacity she is capable of without causing more conflicts. Our best course of action as fans, in my opinion, is to simply respect what has happened, and continue to show our support for Rooster Teeth as they lose one of their greatest personalities, as well as of course, Meg as she moves forward.

    Meg, you will be sorely missed. You were easily in my top three favorite RT/AH members list, which is saying something with how many great personalities there are in the company. All I hope for is that we see more great RT content with you in it from time to time, particularly with Ryan, as you two together were the best co-hosts I've seen in a very long time......

      This is the only explanation that I found, regarding the exact details. We might get more info in the future, but given that they didn't explain in this video, and she didn't go into full details in her video I'm linking, it's likely that the exact details are something that they are keeping to themselves right now either for legal reasons or more likely, personal ones.....
