Karina "Karupups" Marcinkiewicz received 30 days of blocking on Twitch due to the cosplay "Lifeline" from Apex Legends.

Karina's cosplay was equated to racism due to “blackface”, that is, intentional darkening of the skin. On Reddit, where one of Karina's friends spoke about what had happened, most users also condemned the tape drive.

Who is stupid enough to defend blackface?

Karupups has already commented on this incident:

It was just an image, nothing more. There was a big online, the guys asked how I dyed my hair, how make-up felt on my face, etc. They were interested. In fact, many of those who threw the reports, then wrote to me in the Discord, they say, get a ban, we tried, **

The theme of "blackface" has long been sick with fighters for social justice. Recently, among Western cosplayers, an idea was even born to make a boycott list of colleagues for Blackface, among whom were many guys from Russia. In the fall of 2018, the Internet collapsed on a girl because of Sombre's cosplay from Overwatch.
