Given bungie's ties to the Chinese company NetEase, I am wondering where they stand on this topic. Bungie puts themselves out there as a company that believes "everyone's voice matters". Would they back that up in this case or would they side with blizzard? I would like to think that bungie wouldn't sink to blizzard's level of hypocrisy, where social issues are high priority...... up until it threatens to cost them a little communist cash. [u][b]Edit/UPDATE:[/b][/u] Apparently, some Blizzard employees have staged a walkout because of the company's actions. Nice. Hopefully, they don't get fired as well. https://www.thedailybeast.com/blizzard-employees-staged-a-walkout-to-protest-banned-pro-hong-kong-gamer
If they just gave him a warning or suspended him saying don't bring politics here and that was it, I'd of thought nothing of it. But with how heavy handed they were, it's pretty suspicious.
