OWL Broadcast Under Fire After Accidentally Showing Explicit Poster

We've been waiting for fans around the globe to be allowed into esports arenas for over a year now after the global pandemic paused halt on live events. Over in the Overwatch League, normality finally resumed, as fans entered Jing'an New Sports Center to watch the best teams in the Eastern regions go head to head for a place in the finals of the Summer Showdown.

However, with fans back in their seats, the devoted supporters have proven quite problematic. 

During the clash between Chengdu Hunters and Seoul Dynasty, the broadcasting team accidentally snapped a snippet of an explicit sign, which tens of thousands of onlooking Overwatch fans saw.

The Chengdu Hunters' glory over the Dynasty was dampened by an out-of-taste poster made by a fan, depicting a tiger (Seoul’s mascot) getting sexually assaulted by a panda bear (Chengdu’s mascot).

 

 

The poster has now been watermarked on the YouTube VOD, although the massive concurrent viewership all got more than an eye full.

Activision Blizzards Vice President of the Overwatch League, Jon Spector, did take to Twitter to apologise to fans. 

After being tagged in a message, Spector said "thanks for flagging this for me. We will address this with our broadcast team and the venue team. This should not have happened. I’m sorry it did."

The Hunters now find themselves in the semi-finals of the Summer Showdown, where they will take on Dallas Fuel.
