Fans turn Overwatch character Mei into a symbol of the Hong Kong Resistance

  • As mentioned in a previous post, when professional Hearthstone player, Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai, called for the liberation of Hong Kong on a stream, Blizzard promptly suspended him and took back all the prize money he had received so far.
  • These actions were met with vocal protests from fans and Blizzard employees alike.
  • Fans have now started creating images of the Overwatch hero Mei supporting the Hong Kong protests.
  • People hope that the images will spur on China to ban Overwatch, much like how Winnie the Pooh was blocked after memes spread comparing him to Xi Jinping.
