Read the apology, Mike Morhaime takes full responsibility. He isn't going to fire anyone.
Please say thank you and let this die.

Dear members of the Blizzard community,
I usually do not say this kind of thing. I am not a member of the group that probably took the most offense from the comments. However, I am no stranger to dealing with intolerance.
Mr. Morhaime, from one man to another?
This will go a long way towards rebuilding a lot of the respect I had lost for the company after finding out what was said at Blizzcon.
Thank you for recognizing this was a much larger issue than perceived inequalities amongst the Alliance and Horde. That this wasn't about Stormwind or Orgrimmar, Varian or Thrall, but instead about the real people behind the keyboards.
This is a noteworthy gesture on your part. It will not go unnoticed.
Once again: Thank you.
You're really making yourself look bad. If you want to go through life being this vindictive and petty, be my guest. But it isn't going to be any fun for you. The apology is waaaay more than was needed. Samwise is a valuable member of the blizzard staff, and he will continue to flourish. Besides. Morhaime was on the stage too. So don't try it.
Many people do so quietly. And a g##!@vine of unhappy customers can do more to a business then any public forum. Word of mouth helps or hurts and no amount of money can fix that.
edit: I do not know why that word is considered bad but all know it as gossip or grassroots talk of people. No way was that ment to be a bad word.

I find it ungodly sad that some people get so sensitive over this kind of stuff that it requires direct action from Mike Morhaime himself. That's ridiculous.
As one might say; grow thicker skin. If something done as a pure joke rustles your jimmies so badly, read a book. You can't get angry at books.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
