According to

Valve Corp.’s Steam has removed more than 100 profiles from the popular gaming-platform that memorialized the suspected gunman in the attacks on two New Zealand mosques that killed 49 people Friday, the gaming-news site Kotaku reported.

Kotaku counted more than 100 profiles that appeared in a matter of hours after the shooting and that “were blatantly offering tribute to the alleged writer behind a white supremacist manifesto that takes responsibility for the New Zealand shooting.” Most of the profiles used the suspected killer’s name and image, including screenshots or GIFs of a Facebook livestream made during the shooting, the site said. Others offered praise for the gunman’s actions.
