Counter-Strike: Global Offensive-kommentatorn Sadokist ber om ursäkt

Härom dagen vräkte Matthew 'Sadokist' Trivett ur sig rasistiska tillmälen i samband med en PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds-stream på Twitch, där han även bad medlemmar ur communityt att ta ihjäl sig själva. På grund av detta har han nu stängts av från Twitch, skriver PC Gamer. Sadokist har nu bett om ursäkt på Facebook och skriver:

"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.

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."
