"Mass Effect: Andromeda" have rabid fans who took on a poor female animator involved with BioWare all because they thought that she was behind the game's awkward facial animations.

One of the disappointing aspects of BioWare's game is the facial expression, or lack thereof, of the characters in "Mass Effect: Andromeda." According to one gaming critic from Forbes the faces of the characters in the game didn't seem to evoke any kind of emotion, which in today's technology shouldn't be the case anymore.

Whenever the characters are talking or interacting with others their faces all look impassive and their mouths are the only things that are moving making them look like robots trying to pass their selves off as humans.

The lack of emotions from the characters has gotten so bad that many fans of the game expressed their dismay online; unfortunately what was supposed to be a constructive feedback turned into an ugly display of misogyny when these internet trolls mistakenly thought that a woman was behind the animation.

According to Kotaku, Allie Rose-Marie Leost works for EA's motion-capture labs and it was never confirmed that she was heavily involved in "Mass Effect: Andromeda's" animation much less the lead animator of that game.

But internet trolls are not known for conducting extensive research and as soon as they thought they had their target they went online and let loose a barrage of misogynistic messages hurled against Leost.

One troll posted a message on Twitter saying that Leost didn't just lack in talent but he also accused BioWare of giving women preferential treatment because of their gender and not due to their expertise in animation.

Another troll said that Leost's work on "Mass Effect: Andromeda" is so bad that she should "get fired asap!" Leost did not respond to the attacks online but BioWare has released a statement clarifying that Allie Rose was never a lead animator on the game.

The game developers also said that though they welcome criticisms from the gaming community they will never permit malicious attacks on any of their personnel.
