Konami and Kojima: Why all the hate?

Konami and Kojima:  Why all the hate? 
Yep, Konami pretty much banned him from showing up for his own award. Yes, this pisses me off completely. Kudos to the strange Geoff Keighley for revealing the truth behind the ban. That takes balls. I have new respect for him.
From IGN, ((“As you noticed Hideo Kojima is not here with us tonight and I want to tell you a little bit about that,” explained Keighley. “Mr. Kojima had every intention of being with us tonight but unfortunately he was informed by a lawyer representing Konami just recently that he would not be allowed to travel to tonight’s awards ceremony to accept any awards.” ))
And, what Konami is pulling is what we would call De-Friending someone on Facebook or blocking someone on Twitter over bullshit. It is also like not inviting Kojima to his own birthday party.
And, they've tried to erase Kojima from the history of their company is also shameful. Keep in mind they also demanded they don't even want him mentioned in interview.
And, it gets better. Konami made a false copyright claim against a video discussing the issues behind Konami and Kojima. It was over a few frames from MGS Rising. What are you scared of Konami?
Here's the follow up video discussing the strike. And, that it was YT that threw the strike out.
