Blizzard 'Censors Trump4Prez Username in Overwatch,' Deems It 'Inappropriate'

A reddit user from r/the_donald shared a screenshot allegedly showing Blizzard censored his "Trump4Prez" username in Overwatch because they "determined that the battletag wasn't appropriate for the game."

The user posted this screenshot on Monday under the headline "Blizzard is cucked":

Overwatch, under game director Jeffrey Kaplan, has been praised by left-wing media outlets for its "diverse" cast of characters, including one character they made a lesbian.

Blizzard chose not to release a comic about the lesbian character, named Tracer, in Russia last year because they didn't want to violate their laws prohibiting the promotion of homosexuality to children. They had no problem releasing the comic to kids in the United States.

While they clearly favor diversity when it comes to "gender identity," it doesn't appear they favor diversity when it comes to political opinions.

Blizzard did not respond to a request for comment.
