FarmVille Boss Stalked, Needs Over $1 Million In Security

The worst we normally get from irate psycopaths are angry/entertaining emails. For Zynga boss Mark Pincus, though, things are a lot more serious, to the point where he needs an absurd amount of security to ensure the safety of his family.

Since last year, Pincus claims that he's been stalked by a stripper, and while there are attempts to settle that particular case in court, other undisclosed threats have caused Zynga to spend around $US1.37 million on security for both Pincus and his family.

While corporations spend big on the safety of their executives all the time, MarketWatch analysts believe this is well above the norm, putting Pincus in the same league as the bosses of companies like Lockheed Martin.

I know people hate Zynga games, and other people act crazy around the super-rich, but man...

      But would your wife approve of that wish?

        I'm sure she would, pending hotness factor.

      Be careful what you wish for, my friend. A lot of girls in my profession have, uh, controlling personalities an interesting quirks of character, to say the least. :p

    Doesn't he know that stalking is just intense love?

    Maybe the stalker just wants a bit of help with her farm?

    My guess is he's making up the story because he was seen with a stripper.

    Also does anyone else see the words Absolute Scum Sucking Money Grubbing Asshole written on his forehead?
    Or is that just me?

      I mostly just see trollface. Really; it can't just be me.

        Something about his face is just so punchable.

        *Renegade Interrupt*

    Obviously it has nothing to do with the company and it's just him avoiding this person he did the dirty with.
