A man from West Virginia was banned from Xbox Live for listing “Fort Gay” as his home town. It took a while to sort out but everything is back to normal and the man’s account has been restored.
“Someone took the phrase ‘fort gay WV’ and believed that the individual who had that was trying to offend, or trying to use it in a pejorative manner,” Toulouse said. “Unfortunately, one of my people agreed with that. … When it was brought to my attention, we did revoke the suspension.”
