Genshin Impact fans start boycott against miHoYo over, well, everything - Polygon
Apr 07, 2021 47 secs

Fans of miHoYo’s Genshin Impact caused two hashtags, #boycottgenshimpact and #DoBetterMihoyo, to trend on Twitter on Tuesday, in what amounted to mass criticism of the free-to-play gacha game.

Another set of complaints brought attention to an NPC who expresses romantic love toward a character who appears to be a child, leading fans to say there is pedophilia in the game.

A user on Twitter pointed out that Hilichurls — the goblin-like common enemies in the game — were based on Indigenous people.

Instead, these aggrieved fans — who often sported Genshin Impact avatars or references to the game on their Twitter profiles — said they simply wanted the developers to fix what some players viewed as its more problematic content.

One person, who wished to remain anonymous due to the heated nature of the online discourse, told Polygon via Twitter messages that many consider Genshin Impact a “comfort” game, so the initial hashtag wasn’t completely serious to begin with
