      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.

      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 ;)

    China is a very real threat to western values. Their idea of living is very different. US companies...in fact any western company should be VERY careful when dealing with China. They are 'different'. Let them have theirs. If they want western content, they can have it BUT without censorship - we don't do that here!

    As a Sailor stationed in the South China Sea, I'm watching all this unfold (metaphorically) right outside my ship. Chinese activity is very heavy out here, and let it be clear that we in the 7th Fleet heavily support freeing Hong Kong from Communist control. We'd support them more, but that would involve going to war, and we can't have that. On the other side, it's shameful to see Corporate America playing into and cowering to the Enemies of Democracy. It's like stabbing us in the back, and I LOVE Blizzard (Big Overwatch player), so that just makes me all the more disgusted at this shameful betrayal. I wish I could do more to make people see that Money may talk, so we the people need to speak louder.

    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.

    You actually have no idea what your talking about. 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.

    I would have to side with the business. 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.

    Freedom of speech and expression, therefore, may not be recognized as being absolute, and common limitations or boundaries to freedom of speech relate to ...........SEDITION, INCITEMENT, FIGHTING WORDS,..........., PUBLIC SECURITY, and perjury. 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.
