      Damnit Philip, I have to disagree with you once here. Blizzard is not saying that money is more important than free speech.

      The dude violated a legally binding contract, that he signed, and said some shit that he just should not have.

      He could have said "All hail the new 5th Reich, LONG LIVE HITLER" and he would have gotten the same punishment.

      They gave him a chance to be sportsman-like, and he failed. He could have left with a "Yeah, I had fun. The decks were well made, and it was a great time competing here at the professional level" and nothing would have happened. No breach of contract.

      Personally, I am glad he spoke up. Him saying that, is now being seen by millions, if not billions.

      But no matter what the cause, he broke the contract, and got the punishment.

      Think of it from the other side as well. Blizzard is owned by Activision. Activision is in business with TenCent. TenCent represents about 37% of Activision's annual income. TenCent has pull. If they left the deal with Activision, Activision would have to put thousands, IF NOT HUNDREDS-OF-THOUSANDS of their employees out of work.

      Could you imagine the economic crisis that would arise if that happened?

      What is the balance of costs here? Thousands of families now probably going bankrupt, and losing everything they own?
      Dozens of people from Hong Kong being kidnapped and tortured for just having a different view on politics?
      No matter what, somebody is going to get fucked, and the best decision to make would be the one that has the least amount of causalities.

      This whole issue is bigger and more important than some dipshit violating his contract. And to be honest, I am 100% sure he knew that would happen. Good Noodle star to him for doing it. But he could have cost hundreds-of-thousands of people their very livelyhood. However, him speaking up? Probably did nothing particularly productive.

      Please cover the Anne Sacoolas diplomatic immunity story. The story is being hushed up. She's the wife of a US diplomat who ran over and killed a British teen with her car and fled the UK claiming diplomatic immunity.

      Hey Mr DeFranco, this companies have spent hundreds of milion of dolars or even more to promote sports not politics. These people who suport a noble cause (Hong Kong) used the fan base grown by Blizzard and NBA to promote something that is not associated with sports. Is that fair?.If you have spine Mr DeFranco use your resources and help the cause, oh wait you do nothing just talking about other people actions not your own. Take action with your big fat spine bro ;)

                    Meet and greets are just fucking awkward regardless, I've only done one and it felt like they were performing monkey's. They were totally lovely but I felt really uncomfortable that they were being paid to be nice to me

                                If Blizzard are cowards why dont you go ahead and say the word "nigger" in a respectful way on youtube? Since you got freedom of speech and all...

                                                For larger companies, it makes sense to want employees keeping their bikini photos private. There is a difference between posting those photos for /everyone/ to see, and having the photos taken while you're out living your life or sharing them for your friend/family to see. There is a tinge of slut-shaming, but frankly, not wanting people who are "slutty" is justifiable. There is a societal stigma and having certain kinds of people employed will reflect poorly on your company. That being said, this company is absolutely NOT one of the companies that is justified in having such stringent expectations from their employees, unless the CEO was an ambitious, stern, business-oriented person who saw the company going places (doesn't seem to be the case). And I can see jealousy being the reason for posting the story. Hypocritical to have your /undergarment/ in a post, but find it unacceptable for an employee to be wearing something that is not an undergarment but an outfit for swimming.

Nearly all companies here in hong Kong have contracts with their employees which specify that they are not allowed to publicly speak or take part in any protests against the Chinese and Hong Kong government as it could cause massive backlash from china. And obv blizzard priorities business in China (one of their biggest markets) over a streamer which broke his contract on the social media side of things by harming the company.

That photo of her is a red flag for " warning-you are about to hire a self-absorbed girl who may or may not be using her body to get a job, either way a person like this is the kind of employee who is in it for #1, and wouldn't make sacrifices for a team or a business. And this might be a person that I would be hiring who obviously cant distinguish professionalism from expressing her appreciation for her body so i sure as hell am not going to let her market my company unless my company" so..... thats what i think....... but dick move for publicly shaming her i guess.

China is working hard to keep the Chinese people pacified. That can quickly be undone if the Chinese people start to feel very isolated

So in your opinion, Chinese national security is not a matter of national security? Incitement in China is not incitement? What an arrogant attitude to express double standard. This is basically like shouting out "freedom of speech" and "human right" in the last scene of that new JOKER film. Do some more research about the massive violence caused by the "protesters", and Fuck you hypocrite.
