As Hong Kong protesters continue to demonstrate over police brutality and oppressive Chinese authority, a Hearthstone player who voiced solidarity is being punished for doing so by Activision Blizzard.
The rather craven move by ActiBlizz will see pro player Blitzchung lose prize money and face a suspension from Hearthstone eSports. The two casters who were on the stream with him are punished as well, just for being there.
Pathetic, but sadly not unexpected. Corporations will bend over backwards to please China and continue to access its massive market, but in doing so, they are supporting human rights abuses.
