Taking the steps to moderate the emote usage by players and teams to a new level, Blizzard has asked all players and teams to remove references to Pepe on their social media. This comes just as they asked San Francisco Shock to help contact Sinatra and remove his birthday tweet.
Since yesterday other OWL players have removed references to pepe on their social media at the request of OWL team management, including NYXL Pine's phone case tweet. pic.twitter.com/2VGcZjOQfQ
