Protestors are trying to get Overwatch banned in China, using memes of popular hero Mei

People are furious after Blizzard Entertainment suspended Hearthstone player Chung “blitzchung” Ng Wai for expressing support for Hong Kong during an official tournament broadcast. Gamers are calling for a boycott of Blizzard games — and now, some are turning Overwatch hero Mei into a symbol of the Hong Kong resistance.

Neither are blizzard.

Using blizzards characters to get blizz banned in china after blizz defended china is probably the biggest "pro gamer" move in history.

Kind of funny to see meme's have come this far they can literally change the world.

Mgs4 talked about weaponized memes back in 08. It's reality now lol

Winnie the Pooh doesn't have to worry about anything anymore. #tegrityfarms

Good, Blizzard, the NBA, and whatever other companies are caving that that authoritarian communist regime deserve to fail.

It's nice that china is becoming the modern example of how horrible government can be if you let them give away most of your rights. Sort of needed one since people seem to have entirely forgotten how truly bad communism really is. When epic games ceo even thinks you're going too far that says something XD

I’m surprised polygon didn’t ignore this. They seem like they type that would approve of China’s censorship methods and crackdown on dissent. One would think they are pro-gaming with shit like this.

It’s not right. People should have the ability to express themselves freely online without the fear of death or banishment.
