During the Hearthstone Grandmasters, Hong Kong player Chung "Lightning" Ng Wai appeared in an official Taiwanese Hearthstone stream in a gas mask, demanding the liberation of his city ].
The gas mask was similar to that worn by demonstrators in Hong Kong. As our colleagues from Gizmodo report anti-mask measurements were made in Hong Kong, which prohibited the demonstrators from covering their faces.
Inven Global reports that Blitzchung has taken off the gas mask and said, "Liberate Hong Kong. Revolution of our time!
The two roles in the stream hid under the desk and apparently did not have anything to do with the player's statements. According to Inven Global they said to him, "Ok, that's it, Blitz, brother."
The stream quickly became a commercial.
Flashchung issued the following statement Inven :
As you know, there are serious protests in my country right now , My call on stream was just another form of participation in the protest, which I would like to raise more attention to. In the past few months, I have been so concerned about this social movement that sometimes I could not concentrate on preparing for my grandmaster match. I know what my action in the stream means. It could cause me a lot of trouble, even my personal safety in real life. But I think it's my duty to say something on this subject.
The official Taiwanese stream has now removed the clip, but since this is the Internet, it has been saved and shared online.
