CS:GO-kommentator Sadokist undskylder for racistiske kommentarer
For få dage siden blev den kendte CS:GO-kommentator Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett banned fra Twitch, efter at have brugt racistisk, stødende sprogbrug under en udsendelse, hvor han og en ven spillede PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.
Sadokist er nu gået på Facebook for at undskylde officielt for sit sprogbrug. Han siger:
"There are no excuses for what I said. Racism of any variety is absolutely despicable, and unacceptable. No person is void of judgement for their own actions, and that applies to me as well. While I appreciate people trying to play down the situation, there are no grounds to do so."
Sadokist afslører desuden, at hans arbejdsgivere har besluttet at han må håndtere sagen på egen hånd. Han fortæller også at han ikke har i sinde at deltage i Pro League i denne uge.
"It is no secret that I have considered moving on from CS/esports in the past, and last July I came very close to doing so. Three years of non-stop service to the industry has been a massive undertaking, and while it has been extremely rewarding, and I am very fortunate professionally, it has come at a massive cost personally. Perhaps (somewhat) ironically, I told many of my colleagues and friends that on my 29th birthday I was going to put in a better effort to focus on my fitness and well-being for the next six months in a bid to pursue other endeavours that would require me to be in a much better shape."
