Original Blitzchung video / statement

    Found the video.

    Lump, can this be added to the OP?

    The exchange is in Mandarin, but you can get the general tenor of the incident. Again: even the casters were fired.

    Blitzchung's statement:

    Blitzchung said:
    As you know there are serious protests in my country now. My call on stream was just another form of participation of the protest that I wish to grab more attention. I put so much effort in that social movement in the past few months, that I sometimes couldn't focus on preparing my Grandmaster match. I know what my action on stream means. It could cause me lot of trouble, even my personal safety in real life. But I think it's my duty to say something about the issue.
