With brands like Steak-Umms and Wendy's taking social media by storm with overly insulting, snarky, or simply odd approaches to marketing, it's really no surprise when a video game developer follows suit.

But in defending the lore of Apex Legends and Titanfall 2 against Polygon's misreporting, developer Respawn may just have created a story where everyone is far too sensitive...about everything.

Sensitivity begets sensitivity...in Virtual Legality.
