Fans boycot Blizzard after banning incident



Fans are very angry with publisher Blizzard Entertainment after they banned professional Hearthstone player Ng Wai “blitzchung” Chung, after he expressed his support to the demonstrators in Hong Kong on stream during an official Blizzard interview. After that incident, #BoycottBlizzard went trending on social media.

Check out some reactions below.

Kevin Hovdestad, a former Blizzard employee, shared a photo of the famous statue outside of Blizzard’s headquarters. Employees had hidden two of the company’s eight values, “Think Globally” and “Every Voice Matters.”

On social media, fans found various ways of demonstrating against Blizzard and boycotting the company, including cancelling their accounts.

Since today, Mei became the official face of the protest. Fans edited pictures of her with a mask, like the protesters to hide their identity, and video’s like you can see below.

Below the video, there are some more reactions from very unhappy fans. Some of them even declared to stop playing Blizzard games and cancelling their subscriptions.

If we are gonna do it, we are gonna do it big: Mei becomes the icon of Hong Kong revolution!
