Blizzard is banning players who voice support for Hong Kong rights movement

A Hearthstone player called Blitzchung spoke out in support of the protesters in Hong Kong, his hometown. Blizzard subsequently banned him from competing for a year, stripped him of his winnings. Blizzard received a lot of flak from gamers worldwide and the aftermath is swiftly growing beyond its original gaming context into a proper international incident.

Choosing money over principle. Disgusting... How DARE YOU! Not only ban him for expressing support for Hong Kongs Liberty and Independence but go as far as to take away the 10,000 dollars he rightfully Earned! Just shows the extent you will go to get into the pants of an authoritarian communist fuck of a country to get that oh too sweet market share. Fuck off with that excuse that you do not express politics as you most certainly like to fucking pander to special groups all the time. Shame on you Blizzard! For an American Company your a Shit Hole in my eyes! FUCK YOU! Edit... So you MOTHER.. FUCKERS try to lie to us and stab our values in the back as you go to a Chinese social media page saying you will defend the "Pride of Our Country!" Referring to the Communist China. You were not established in China... You were founded in America! So if you want to spit at our great nation which gave you the chance to become what you are... THEN FUCK OFF TO CHINA YOU TRAITOROUS FUCKERS! LEAVE!!! YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO AMERICA!!!

Is it me, or did South Park predict the future? First the NBA, then Blizzard. Almost like this is all part of a larger plan.

I’ve got a sub till December but I don’t think I’ll be renewing. Plenty of other games out there that aren’t bowing to foreign demands.

Greed over principle. Like they weren't surviving fine with the western market, they just have to dig in to the Chinese market and kiss their ass to stay in
