A few days ago, the hashtag #BoycottNiantic was trending on Twitter. More on that here.
Today has been declared #PokemonNoDay in protest of the new rule in Pokémon Go that reverts to an old setting that makes players physically be right next to Pokéstops in order to engage with them. Because of the COVID pandemic, Niantic made it possible to access these Pokéstops from a greater distance away.
Why they decide to change it is beyond me (and everyone else for that matter).
Here is what people have to say about it.
To this point, Niantic has not released any type of comment or update on this matter.
