Only in today’s world are people so easily offended. Following last week’s lively discussion on the Overwatch hero and her booty Tracer, she’snow seen the victory pose changed to a the pleasure of the overly sensitive and easily offended people. Although not directly mentioned in the official patch notes, fans were quick to notice the new pose, which appears to be directly inspired by vintage pin-up art, and most seem content with the change.

The change is due to an outcry by an idiotic group of people claiming the old pose to be sexist. Below is the new pose and the old one: Even sexier you may argue? We think so…
“We made the decision to go with a different pose in part because we shared some of the same concerns, said Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan last week. “But also because we wanted to create something better.”
His forum post was responding to a fan complaint that the original “over the shoulder” pose didn’t convey the “fun” and “silly” aspects of Tracer’s character, and was instead overly-sexualised. “We actually already have an alternate pose that we love and we feel speaks more to the character of Tracer,” said Kaplan. the following Facebook video explains the issue with this entire saga beautifully:
