    I believe Blizzard stated that it wasn't his position (i.e. being for Hong Kong) that they banned him for, it was that he was expressing an opinion--one way or the other--on politics during a tournament stream, which they're not supposed to do.

    Given complaints people often have when players or announcers drag politics into their sports coverage like that whole NFL thing from a while ago, I don't think such a policy is unreasonable. Or can someone show examples of them showing double standards in this?

      It's regularly used by Chinese dissidents to refer to Chairman Xi without naming him directly, which would otherwise result in arrest and imprisonment.
