  1. It’s strange, Blizzard has done something that seemed to be impossible, they’ve managed to find something that liberals and conservatives can actually agree on. Astonishing!

  2. I'm glad to see this getting coverage. I cancelled my wow classic account after blizzards support of China and trampling of freedom.

  3. If you have to put money over basic human rights then you need to check that Moral Compass because when we pass on you cannot take it with you, unlike your soul. So develop what you can take with you into a good one!

  4. Thanks Fox, for covering this story. I talk crap about the organization a lot but this story needs more eyes on it.

  5. Would you dare to imagine a time that Democrats supported a strict and often brutal communist regime over freedom? It just goes to show you how lazy, angry, and sad the everyone gets a trophy generation is. They have been manipulated so badly in schools, films by our communist Hollywood and communist teachers union their minds are mush.

  6. Blizzard is just rotten to the core these days. Big pride month enthusiasts but as soon as some fat cockroach chinaman waves a stack of money in their faces they forget all about western values. DIE.

  7. I hate the fact that Chinese money is contouring the games, movies, sports and consumer goods, affecting our lives…

  8. Who wants to make bets about whether or not Kotick is already in the process of cowardly jumping ship to another company he can ruin?

  9. This isn't just about HK – The Uyghiers in the eastern desert (Xinjiang), Pakistan, Tibet, Japanese islands. China are a menace.

  10. I have over 400 hours on Overwatch, but I ll never play it again. How dare Activision and Blizzard bend over for an evil dictatorship like China???
    Maybe the CEOs of these American Corporations would like to have their organs harvested or their children work in sweat shops?

  11. Do not go gentle into that good night. Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light

  12. Blizzard did the only reasonable thing which is staying neutral. If they would do nothing about Blitzchung and the 2 casters, that would be a DIRECT shot against China and they would be taking part in a conflict which is clearly not what they are supposed to do as an entertainment company. They simply say that they are no platform for publishing political opinions

  13. you people realize HK is China and nobody is invading or attacking HK except the leftist criminal protestors right….

  14. Been playing Blizzard games for 20 yrs… now I don't want to spend another dime. Whatever the rules for the event were, is really not even the issue here. Hope the backlash will be huge.

  15. I hate both Democrats and republicans, but at least I support their freedom of speech and I know I won't get thrown in prison for saying screw both Clinton and Trump.

  16. Activision-Blizzard is an American company based in California that enjoys the protections and freedoms the United States gives them on one hand but on the other hand they work on behalf of a foreign government (China) in suppressing those same freedoms from people in a region of the world China is at conflict with. (Hong Kong) You should talk to Mark Kern, he was a member of Blizzard's World of Warcraft development team and knows quite a bit about Blizzard and gaming in China. Here is a live stream with Mark Kern @3w74

  17. 评论区里这么多废青,你们这么想要光复香港可以继续你们的”和平抗议解决”方式啊,反正香港那里到底发生了什么大家都知道

  18. They also fired the two talking heads who literally hid when blitz talked about hk. Blizzard has since did a half step and are going to pay blitz the 10k but give the three people a 6 month ban.

    One of the points not addressed is the blizzard official account supporting the censorship saying it wouldn't allow for china to be disparaged.

  19. So it is not ok for Americans (European-Americans especially) and their gov when the same thing is done here in the US by lets say those athletes players who use that platform to bring an issue to the attention of others, refuse to stand up and sing the US national anthem? but it is ok and to support it when it is done in another country the same way? that's very stupid and some BS. You people are PATHETIC. The biggest brainwashed people on earth (no different than those terrorist in Syria when it comes to being brainwashed) and the biggest hypocrite ever. Stupid double standards. F out of here! Well done Blizzard.

  20. China is not that democracy. so nobody allowed to insult she and earn money from she.

    country has their warning line. freedom of America and sovereignty of China. do not try to touch that line.

    people in countries who have not be invaded humiliated murdered with a century hard to understand that feelings. in that period Chinese didn't have right of live not to say right of human. so that time will never ever happen again.
    you can humiliate a Chinese but you can't challenge the Chinese sovereignty because no China no chinese.

  21. See how this host asks questions at the end for the less intelligent viewers, i think American news stations should do the same. Not even a knock on it as an entirety, just some people do not understand if they don't follow news and technology daily.

  22. This is why we need to enforce our MONOPOLY & ANTI TRUST LAWS….Back in the 1970's federal judges used to drag corporations into court to break them apart when they got too big and we're considered a "THREAT TO THE CONSUMER". When corporations tried to merge / buy each other out it took WEEKS if not MONTHS in court and judges most of the time denied the mergers for the same reason…"THREAT TO THE CONSUMER"…

  23. So sad, all this loser cares about is a game, he is one out of tens of thousands of people who have no life outside of gaming in Hong Kong

  24. Leave the gaming industry alone…… it is not a platform for your political views… let them focus on what they do… and I’m wasting my time here cuz you people don’t play games….

  25. I felt sorry for Hongkong people but I also think blitzchung need to follows the rules too. If I were him I probably create my personal account and support hongkong with my own name, not under other's.
    As unfortunate as this is, if he willing to deliberately break the rules, he must also be willing to accept the consequences of their actions. Now I don't think that Blizzard deserves the publicity it is getting. It was fair of Blizzard to uphold their policy that was already established to be neutral.

  26. I think Blizzard did well, you can express yourself on facebook or twitter, not in a freaking gaming tournament, damaging the reputation of the company

  27. It is obvious that China is very sensitive about what's happening in Hong Kong… Yet people dare make remarks in support of the Hong Kong protesters…. They must face the consequences…… and consequences there will be….

  28. Blizzard, Google, the NBA and Apple all understand they need China's market and Chinese money in order to survive. It is just a fact. Money is more important than freedom and democracy.

  29. He knew he was doing wrong, the caster knew what he was about to do, they were part of an act that was not permitted on an event that was meant ONLY for gaming, like ANY other sport

  30. "lets put it this way. If that guy gets banned for saying" stop protesting and Hongkong is a part of China " Will you still support him?

  31. Why only boycott Blizzard, why not carry it over to anything backed by Tencent? Fortnite, PUBG, Supercell (Clash of Clans,) League of Legends, Call of Duty, the NBA, 2k sports, and so many more.

  32. 30 years ago this was unthinkable. Now, no videogame can portrait chinese as bad guys. Any middle east or poor country sure, or Russia. But not China .

  33. When Fox actually bother to report about the events that happened at a gaming tournament, you know Blizzard just outdone themselves.
    (no offense Fox… we cool, right?)

  34. Never played a Blizzard game before. Thought about getting Diablo III or Overwatch at some point. Yeah, not anymore. Hong Kong should be its own country.

  35. If blizzard feels that they'd like to rid themselves of the comments on weibo, they should fire the people who made it. I am not for cancel culture. But this is serious enough to be fired. How can you as an employee, use a company platform for a certain government's bid on oppression? Blitzchung does not represent Blizzard but that weibo account, actually does.

  36. Companies & people who are working for CCP:
    LeBron James
    Colin KaeperDick
    Marriott Hotels
    Steve Wynn
    The DNC/DSA
    All DNC Presidential Candidates
    Ilhan Omar’s Father is a Genocidal Mass Murderer who belonged to the Communist Islamist Barre Regime in Somalia! He lied about who he was & gave Fake Names to sneak into USA! When is FOX gonna do an exposé!
    Anyone who made deals with CCP is ignoring Organ Harvesting & Human Rights Atrocities!
    Free Hong Kong, Free Tibet!

    add more if you know who else that can be put on this list!
    Vote Dems Out!
