Baldwin has sometimes been credited with originating the hashtag #GamerGate near the end of August 2014 by posting the hashtag on Twitter alongside a pair of videos that, as part of wider criticisms, repeated earlier allegations against Zoe Quinn and Nathan Grayson.
His role in the GamerGate controversy led to a petition to prevent Baldwin from appearing as a guest at the Supanova Pop Culture Expo in 2015.The convention's management decided to keep Baldwin as a guest.
