Yep, sounds like an opportunity for him to make it all about SonicFox for attention and social standing on twitter.
An attention seeking tweet reminding us
• The real victim here is Sonic Fox since he got lied to
• Has to preach that his own moral and ethical positions are beyond reproach
• Out of the goodness of his heart, he was kind to MikeZ in the past (more than anyone deserves apparently)
• Has to put in a "fuck you" just to make sure people reading knows he means business!
• "Go seek help" tucked in the end to show you he's not heartless and actually wants to help

Pretty fucking pathetic but entirely predictable for someone morally devoid and vapidly narcissistic enough to try to steal attention on twitter.

Yeah, I have to agree here: while it's certainly not impossible his comments were to some degree motivated by a genuine desire to show solidarity with the people who had to deal with the principle jerk-off of that scenario, the devil is most certainly in the details, and I think you're right--that post does not indicate a person who has particularly useful perspective on the situation. When you read that thread after first reading a long sequence of posts by the actual employees detailing what they have been dealing with and why they are giving up their livelihoods during the worst possible time in order to extricate themselves from that situation--posts which admirably provide more light than heat despite the fact that they are the ones who really would be entitled to be ranting, if anyone--it's hard to credit SF's comments as particularly on-point or useful.

I feel like they walk the tightrope on this issue. All the way up to and including SoulCalibur III, they were quite tasteful, but then SoulCalibur IV went way off the deep end into DOA territory with not only the outfits but also the proportions going to ridiculous lengths of over the top sexiness. Then SoulCalibur V reeled it back, mostly, then SoulCalibur VI let up slack again, particularly for the base roster female characters, as the DLC ones have been more tasteful (though they still suffer from SoulCalibur IV’s proportions, they never did dial that back), but they balance that out with the Lost Swords junk in the creation DLC.
TBF, SC5 had promotional posters like these.

Do any of you follow people on Twitter who speak a different language to you, put their tweets through the built in translator only for it to produce some of the most insane rabble you've ever read?

I almost exclusively follow Japanese accounts, and honestly, half the things a few of them say are impossible with a translator.
My favourite is "it seems to get move and get sweaty and the cooler. Run.
Did you really drag her name when your character called "Kamishitmusi"

That elf is just Amy's crappy cosplay and no one can change my mind

Can't comment on her design, but her voice is so high-pitched, it's easily the worst voice among the SC4 guests. When it comes to weapon effects OTH, I prefer hers considering she spouts golden feathers in her CF as opposed to Amy's pink rose petals.

Compare 1:25 with 2:00.

I never understood why, though, considering SoulCalibur V’s rather conservative outfits. For Ivy, even, those outfits are the most covered up she has ever been, aside from her 2ps from SoulCalibur I-II. One of my favorite little details about SoulCalibur V remains Pyrrha’s skirt physics, which go above and beyond to avoid showing her panties. Then when she goes Pyrrha Omega, this gets disabled and her skirt flies freely.
