 I agree that it would be better to have this done automagically, but from
 looking at the code, I believe that everything is behaving exactly as
 intended. I'm still trying to fully grasp what's going on in this part of
 the code, but from what I can tell everything is as it should be. Until
 this functionality is purposed for the front end I'm guessing it's not
 going to get a whole lotta love. However, you can still get the
 hide_sitewide flag for the comment tree updated.

 In your update function, you could do something like this:

 // code leading up to bp_activity_add()
 bp_activity_add( $args );

 // $child_comment_args would be an array/object filled with all your
 if ( $child_comments = BP_Activity_Activity::get_child_comments(
 $parent_id ) {
    foreach ( $child_comments as $child_comment ) {
       // add check for existing child comment hide_sitewide value
       // if different, add new value to $child_comment_args
       bp_activity_add( $child_comment_args );

 This is essentially the same thing that would be done if it were to be
 added to core.
