Nintendo Korea’s Twitter account tweeted some sexist things about a TV reporter named Eun Ji Park. It may have not been their intention but Nintendo has released a statement on the matter.

“She should have just stayed as a TV Meteorologist. Getting all the work done on her face like that. How come a brainless b***h like you gets the entire spotlight? Who is your sponsor? TV…sigh…”

“Sponsor” also means “Sugar daddy” in Korean or something, according to Kotaku.

“We’ve determined no employee has posted such comment on our Twitter account. We’d like to know how this ended up on our Twitter. This matter is frustrating,” Nintendo spokesperson said.

This is not a massive PR disaster but considering the women who was at the receiving end of the tweet is a TV star in Korea, things could get messy for Nintendo.
