I’ve been contacted regarding this, to say something about it and yes I am aware of what is going on. Being a Community Contributor I am well inside this and trying to keep myself as informed as possible can.
I won’t go into much detail for now, I’m still waiting for further statements from Wargaming and see how this is going (because it still is going) before I can comment.
For now, I just want to share Jingles words on this matter, I believe is quite on point and I agree with his reasons for being mad.
As for Circon, he just released a video with an update.
I will cover this topic, either later today or over the weekend, but for now I’m just waiting to see how this matter progresses.
Quick update: Florian, Wargaming Head of Community Management, has released a small statement apologizing to SirFoch and how this situation was handled.

“I understand that my statement can be seen dubious compared to the screenshot posted, and the implied threat there. However I want to point out that there was no copyright claim done on SirFoch and I assure you it wouldn’t have come to that.
That leaves the questions on our communication yesterday with SirFoch, where the focus was completely and only on his vocabulary, unfortunately the wrong words had been chosen to express the importance of the situation to us. And I apologize to SirFoch, censorship was in no way ever the goal. We will certainly learn from the situation and will continue to work on the we communicate. “
