A question and answer session at BlizzCon 2019 was interrupted by a kid shouting, “Free Hong Kong”.
The Q&A session took place after a World of Warcraft Shadowlands panel. At the beginning of the video, a man says, “Free Hong Kong, the revolution of our times.” The host appeared shocked, but quickly moved on to the next person.
As the next fan comes up to ask a question, an offscreen kid begins to chant, “Free Hong Kong” from the crowd. Before the questioner can finish, a protestor approaches the microphone, continuing the chant.
Before the fan can even finish his question, the kid approaches the microphone, still chanting.
Got a question, mate?” the host asks.
“Yeah,” says the courageous kid, taking the microphone and saying clearly “Free Hong Kong.”
Blizzard’s backlash controversy this year has to do with the banning of a Hong Kong Hearthstone player Ng Wai Chung, known as Blitzchung, who used a gaming event to express his support for the Hong Kong protests.
