I'm fully expecting airport-level security checks before all the entrances to blizzcon. Gotta make sure no persons with pro-hongkong signs or shirts get in, because they can be damn sure that a lot of their fans will try just that.


You've just described the reason blizzard will be fine.
People who hate blizzard will still buy tickets just to complain about blizzard.

Morey wasn't thinking about others, just himself, by tweeting support for the people of Hong Kong.

Obviously Lebron doesn't apply this reasoning to Kaepernick's kneeling, which has lost the NFL money and alienated a bunch of fans.

Lebronze’s default position on people he hates seems to be “they aren’t educated”

this includes but is not limited to Morey, the people of Ohio, and everyone in Hong Kong

"people should stop and think of the effect their words will have on others" Lebron James. 1 day latter Hong Kong freedom fighters so upset they burn his jerseys publicly AND people mad in the USA.

maybe Lebron should have taken his own advice. wading into a deeply political arena, then backing off (he tweeted today stepping back from his in person comments), and still losing fans. literally just to do PR for the NBA and china. dumb move...

he should have had Ray Allen or Kyrie Irving take a stance for him - he's only got rings because of them anyway

It's illegal to boycott the country that the soviet communists fled to.

Heres a rabbi at a Jewish supremacy conference bragging about it:

They can't stop us! They'll just bite the bullet and delay the stream to China IMO, use footage from last year, or not stream it at all. Security was really tight last year b/c they were scared of a shooting (remember the Halo tournament that got shot up?) and they had to delay the opening ceremony. Remember, there's A LOT of press watching BlizzCon this year. If they remove hundreds/thousands of people for pro HK gear, that just makes the protest outdoors larger and the problem gets exponentially worse for them. They just need the story to die so they can't disturb the hornet's nest.

On a side note, there are several pro HK fundraisers and mine has raised 4 grand so far. A couple other campaigns that I'm coordinating with have raised 3 grand+ as well. This is going to be a big deal!

I might make the flower in front slightly smaller (8 inches across instead of 10) but this is basically the final version that the vendor's artists are cleaning up.

the talk of twitter and reddit is this is somehow making him money in China for spacejam 2 and clothes apparel sales. what i dont get is how this could have made him any more money than saying nothing. like was this supposed to signal some serious uptick in Space Jam 2 ticket sales or something? i dont get it. seems like such an unforced error. i think Lebron's ego got in the way. he sees himself as the premier star in the NBA and therefore needed to comment on a scandal of the NBA. it wasn't his team, he should have just stfu and focused on making the lakers not a joke this year.
