One of the creepier ones was was they did to the Hong Kong player who won the big international e-sports championship after it was found out that he happened to have once mentioned support for the democracy movement there. Blizzard disqualified him and took back his winnings. They didn't want China offended.
Agreed, But sadly no one in the west seems to really care about that.
Kotaku's Cosby Suite story is also a bit disingenuous, They're clearly trying to imply that they were fans of "previously convicted rapist Bill Cosby" because of the drugging and raping and that they had created some kind of Cosby rape room. But he had not been previously convicted at all, This was over a year before that came out and Kotaku intentionally left that out of the story.
Also wanted to cancel the McCree character because a developer who shares his name made a single dirty joke in a private conversation 8 years ago seems too much. Did the guy actually sexually harass anyone? Is there a man or woman alive who has never made dirty jokes in private?
