(CW: child sexual abuse) I think another thing to keep in mind in all of this (and something not a lot of people are aware of): Altman's sister Annie has alleged that she "experienced sexual, physical, emotional, verbal, and financial abuse from my biological siblings, mostly Sam Altman and some from Jack Altman". You can read more about her statements on this at The Mary Sue.
