Quinnipiac University has removed all references to a professor who not only advocated punching Nazis but recently physically assaulted a YouTuber at GenCon, the world's largest gaming conference. The former professor Matthew "Fantastic" Loter was listed as part-time faculty who was instructing an introduction to game design class slated to begin this fall. Since Loter was identified by multiple witnesses and surveillance footage as being the man who sneaked up behind YouTuber Jeremy Hambly of the channel "The Quartering", put him in a headlock, and punched him in the head repeatedly while screaming, "I'm going to f*g killing you".

In an interview with Campus Reform, Hambly said, "Someone came up behind me and put their arm around my neck, and said: 'Hey, are you Jeremy Hambly?' At that moment, I sincerely thought it was a fan from Youtube." Hambly continued, "Then I turned my head and Loter started screaming and punching me, yelling “I’m going to f*g kill you." Since the story was first broke on Campus Reform, it has been picked up by a number of other media outlets. Hambly has also raised nearly $30,000 for legal expenses to sue Loter and has retained the legal counsel used by YouTuber Steven Crowder to assist him and getting justice.
Hambly did file a police report with the Indianapolis police department and a detective has been assigned to the case but thus far no other actions have been taken by police. Hambly told campus reform getting the police to take him seriously has been difficult despite obvious visible injuries, multiple eyewitnesses, and physical damage to the bar's property where Loter punched and broke a window while trying to chase Hambly into the bar as he fled his attacker.

Hambly has stated he does not know Loter, and internet sleuths have discovered a tweet made by Loter that was seemingly in response to one of Hambly's videos where he criticised GenCon for bringing Anita Sarkeesian, the woman who doxed herself and then blamed it on sexist gamers starting what became known as "GamerGate". Hambly said in his video, "Why would you bring the most toxic, most divisive person in gaming, to the world’s biggest gaming convention?"

Six days after the video was published, Loter tweeted, "Real talk: if you have a problem with [Anita Sarkeesian] being invited to @Gen_Con fucking fight me, I’m easy to find." Since the assault, Loter has deleted all his social media accounts, shut down his gaming store's Facebook page and phone number, and has refused to respond to any inquiries from the press regarding the assault. Loter is a far-left social justice warrior who advocates "punching Nazis", with "Nazis" being anyone he decides he doesn't like.
