Model accuses Tencent of using her likeness without permission in Ring of Elysium

"I feel like, in a way, people have been deceived, and that's really, really not okay," says Mei Yan

A Chinese-American model and YouTuber has called out Tencent for allegedly using her likeness in Ring of Elysium without permission.

In a thread on Twitter, Mei Yan accused Tencent of stealing, photoshopping, and using her image for a character in its recently released battle royale game.

Describing it as "weird and freaky", Yan highlighted the facial, outfit, and even collarbone similarities between her original image and the character of Lynn from Ring of Elysium.
