Overwatch has been the target of another round of criticism this week. This time, rather than accusations of sexism (or misogyny as some people incorrectly label it) Blizzard has been accused of “cultural appropriation.” Though some of the other Overwatch Skins have been labelled offensive too, the specific skin under scrutiny this time is the Devi skin for the character ...
