As a protection measure, the player says to wear his official team uniform Dallas FuelAs he explains in the following way, “If I put on the shirt, I think they realize that we are part of some kind of team, so they don’t bother us as much. But if I put on my everyday clothes they run up to us, harass us and then run away“.
This case has reached the ears of Blizzard who provide full support to the player and the Asian community in the following way.
“At Activision Blizzard, we condemn racism in the strongest possible terms“,” We support the Asian community, our employees and our players and we are working throughout our organization. “
