Thank you for calling Blizzard and the NBA out phil, trading basic human rights and freedom of speech out for profit is about the lowest thing a company can do

Before, when Philip said I will see you tomorrow, all i thought was oh, another closing, but now, living in Hong Kong, we all know that shutting down the internet is just a thing of sooner or later, so yes, I really wish to see you tomorrow and the day after and the day after............

"We too love money more than freedom and democracy" - South Park is just amazing lol.

These companies need some tegridy.

I personally think bikini shots are “unprofessional” but this is a social media company named kickass. So I don’t see the problem here. And then they posted her picture of her body just to shame her?! Wtf. I hope no one wants to work for them after this.

Discusting that any American company would bow down to the Chinese government.

Sad thing is the little fangirl actually said "sorry" as she walked away from the Dobre Brothers, like that's how awkward she felt

Looks like we've got a whole lot of companies to boycott.

You really shouldn’t comment on people’s professionalisms when you name your company “kickass masterminds”.

Gotta love how the NBA will "bravely" stand up to injustice in America, but will cower at the thought of standing up for real injustices taking place.

American businesses: “We support free speech”

China: “Yeah, keep telling yourself that”

I love how these companies spin remarks against Chinese government as offending the Chinese people. Like the majority of Chinese people aren't the ones also being suppressed.

Hope people are seeing why the 1st amendment is so important.

Joke: "If you could pick up the USA and flip it over, you'd see a 'Made in China' sticker on the bottom."
Have been telling this joke since like 2005. Money is more important than people.. This is one major divide between the rich and working classes.

r/hongkong is filled with tons of people cancelling their Modern Warfare orders and WoW subscriptions.

Saw the title: Dear Blizzard & NBA, YOU'RE COWARDS!

And was, oh finally someone got it right, here's a video worth a click.

Is anyone going to talk about the part where they said quote “appreciating your body is unprofessional “

Laura Ingram to Lebron & NBA
"Shut and and dribble.

Lebron James "I refuse to be silenced."

China "Shut up and dribble."

Lebron and the NBA. *crickets*

South Park’s episode and apology fits this situation perfectly.

It is amazing. A must watch!

There is a popular phrase in Chinese: “glass heart” or “heart of glass.” Someone with a “glass heart” is someone who’s very sensitive or whose feelings get hurt easily.

It’s not “slut” shaming... she didn’t sleep with anyone she just posted a picture of herself in a bathing suit, that is a normal thing people do, who in the hell would side with the business on this? Sure they had the right not to accept her, but don’t put her on blast like that, that’s just scummy.

"No one's ever going to be perfect."

Ironic, considering how perfect Philip DeFranco is. <3

That "apology" is why south park has stayed relevant for decades.

America you gotta do something about this!
