It is certainly awful to see Saudi Arabia investing in various companies but Nintendo is a publicly traded company so in theory anyone can buy stock on it, I don't think Nintendo can choose who can buy shares.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has also been criticized for pursuing a war in Yemen that caused a humanitarian disaster and for cracking down on dissenting voices. He has alternately been praised for ending a ban on women drivers in 2018.

One of these things is not like the other.

Additionally there is evidence that A) He hasn't actually lifted it B) If he did lift it he certainly has done nothing to protect women who do drive thereby resulting in a chilling effect on women in Saudi (having his cake and eating it too) and C) Even if he did lift it, his other actions undercut it by systematically imprisoning and targeting female activists in Saudi Arabia for pushing feminist ideals and criticizing his regime.

ANN this is a man who orders innocent journalists to be dismembered...I don't think you need to present a "good quality" for every bad. Especially when said "good quality" is in question. Just my 2 cents.
