A PlayStation executive was fired by Sony after he was filmed by a group of amateurs who accused him of arranging to meet someone he believed to be a 15-year-old boy for sex. George Cacioppo, senior vice president of engineering for Sony who worked on the PlayStation Store, was filmed by activists on the YouTube channel People v. Preds. “We are aware of the situation and the employee in question has been fired,” Sony said in an emailed statement to tech website CNET, which added that Cacioppo had not responded to a request for comment. The video shows the cameraman walking down a suburban street towards a house that Cacioppo, wearing a PlayStation T-shirt, stands outside. The cameraman then accuses Cacioppo, whom he calls “Jeff”, of arranging a sexual encounter with a 15-year-old boy, as Cacioppo retreats into the house and closes the door.
