On June 1st, the Beijing Teenagers Law Aid And Research Center announced it was suing Tencent Holdings Ltd. The lawsuit alleges there is inappropriate content that is not suitable for minors in the organization’s world-famous game Honor of Kings.
“Game characters’ clothing is too revealing, while there is a lot of… low-taste content that is inappropriate for teenagers on its website and forums,” the organization said in a recent social media posting.
The lawsuit could not be independently confirmed by Reuters. Tencent also did not respond to a request for comment from Reuters.
The public interest group claims that the age limit on the game has progressively been lowered over the last few years. The age limit started at 18 in 2017 and is now reportedly 12.
