(sorry if the tittle is a bit of a roller coaster. My English doesn't seem to working right now)

I know some people take their games seriously, but dude...

Shanghai police have arrested an individual who allegedly planned to assassinate the founders of MiHoYo, the Chinese studio behind Genshin Impact. According to various reports, the man was reportedly armed with a knife and managed to infiltrate the MiHoYo building before he was apprehended on April 24. Fortunately, no one was harmed in the incident and the would-be assassin is now in police custody.

As for why anyone would want to supposedly plot the murder of video game developers, the individual was apparently upset over recent changes to MiHoYo's other game Honkai Impact 3rd.
A recent update had added bunny costumes to the game, but these cosmetic items weren't available in China. Fan backlash that complained of the content being disrespectful to China and the character that the costume was meant for resulted in it being removed
It's not clear if the individual who snuck into the MiHoYo offices was upset because of the introduction of the DLC or the removal of it.

Gets better too. The reason why the costume was removed in the first place? People simply thought their "Waifu" looked stupid in it.

The costume (and video) in question.
