NSFW: Individual investigations on Alison Rapp have discovered what her moonlight job may have been

Editor's Note: We want to make a few things clear: Doxing and/or harassing a person's family is deplorable. In addition, no one involved in this article has any issues with sex workers. It does seem reasonable that Nintendo, particularly as a kid focused company, has a legitimate reason to let a person go if a representative of theirs engages in it. The information below, as we understand it, was at the time, on fully public sites. Yes, someone connected the dots, but this particular info was not hidden. As far as we know, Alison Rapp has not confirmed or denied the information below and it may not be her. This article has been edited to make that more clear.

Alison Rapp, who was recently fired from Nintendo for moonlighting, has rocked the gaming community despite the situation being a personal - and not a public - affair. Many people have jumped in from various angles claiming that her dismissal was rather unfair and unjust, or completely necessary and justifiable. While neither side has agreed on anything, new information on Rapp's second "job" may turn the tide against her...

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK. READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.

According to a Twitter post by Rapp, Nintendo accepts moonlighting under its policy. This statement has been the cause for contention from both supporters of Rapp and anti-Rapp individuals. The reason for this is that it directly conflicts Nintendo's statement. According to the official Nintendo press statement to Mashable:

It should be noted that this statement does not explicitly state that Rapp was fired because she had a second job. As such, Alison Rapp was certainly not lying. However, she wasn't exactly telling the truth either. As many anti-Rapp supporters have pointed out, the "conflict with Nintendo's corporate culture" has led to many speculations of what this actually meant.

Supporters of Rapp have suggested that this was a result of the harassment she faced from certain interest groups around the period of March 2016. However, the anti-Rapp parties have found damning evidence of what the real reason for Rapp's dismissal truly was.

While Rapp was initially believed to have been terminated after harassment following alleged comments on whether pedophilia should be legalized, the anti-Rapp party dug deeper into why she might have been fired. Not long after her termination from Nintendo, anti-Rapp groups discovered a Twitter post containing questionable images - posted by Rapp - which she was selling to customers (seen above).

While these things may seem like enough for some to fire a public relations officer, this was only the tip of the iceberg. New evidence has surfaced that suggests Alison Rapp may have been working as a paid personal escort going by the false name Maria Mint. The following images from The Ralph Retort are damning as the tattoos (and other accessories) from the Maria Mint escort site conclude beyond a reasonable doubt that this may have been the job that led to Rapp's dismissal.

NOTE: It should be pointed out that these images are merely the ones that can be safely displayed on this website. Other sources have found much more revealing images that display irrefutable evidence of Rapp's involvement.

While the attempt to hide all tattoos was near perfect, a careful eye can pick out the bottom two edges of a red star tattoo in the image on the left

The blurred tattoo seems to match those belonging to Alison Rapp

This image of the identical ring (on the same hand nonetheless), combined with the other images pulled from Maria Mint's web page build a near impregnable case against Rapp

Another piece of evidence - which may be entirely coincidental - is that Maria Mint's escort site has since been taken down for 'maintenance'. The escort in question also worked in the Seattle area (of which it is publicly known that Rapp lives in). While the site may be down, archives of the webpage still exist, and if they are truly tied to Rapp it is completely understandable why a family-friendly company such as Nintendo would fire her. This has been supported by yet another finding by the individuals investigating her background.

One individual took images from both Maria Mint's website, as well as Alison Rapp's Twitter page, and ran it through an online application that tears apart the data. Remarkably, both images ran identical camera IDs, lens serial numbers, and various other camera identifiers. For those who don't know, every camera that is manufactured carries unique code (known as exif data) that is placed into each image that is taken. That means that beyond all reasonable doubt, rather:

It should be noted that - regardless of Nintendo's corporate reasons for her termination - prostitution is illegal in the state of Washington under Code RWC 9A.88.030 and RWC 9A.88.070. Should the evidences against Rapp prove to be true, there is little doubt that the company dismissed her in order to save face. Unfortunately, it seems to have had the opposite effect since the International Game Developers Association has since criticized Nintendo's actions - albeit due to Rapp's withholding of the truth, and Nintendo's typical silence regarding corporate matters.

It is unfortunate that Alison Rapp lost what many would consider to be a dream job, and perhaps we should have pity for her as a result. Sadly, the fact of the matter is that she broke company policy - no matter how much she may try to hide it.

While she may not have lied about moonlighting being allowed at Nintendo, it should come with common sense that there are certain jobs one should not hold while working at a family-friendly company. The internet is a very easy place to be both lost and found in, and hopefully this serves as a reminder to those working in any industry that you should never post anything that could be used against you.

What do you think of the Alison Rapp case now that this information has surfaced? Do you think Nintendo - or Rapp - could have handled the situation better? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!
