The former Dallas Fuel Pro Félix "xQc" Lengyel was resuspended by Overwatch. He was suspended twice during the Overwatch League season, the first time for homophobic remarks to an oppositional player, the second time for "an emote in a racially pejorative manner," while reporter Malik Forté, who is black, was on screen. Dallas Fuel promptly removed him from his roster.
Now he was suspended for persistent "offensive language" aimed at other players in the game, leaving his place in the next Overwatch World Cup with Team Canada in doubt.
On Twitter, xQc said "it was never my intention to harass or use the chat in the game in an offensive manner", claiming that much of the language was just "skirmishing".
It's never my intention to use harassment or in-game chat in an abusive way. Banter is fun and 100% of the time I write something to someone, whom I know that he plays along and is not hurt. If I've ever entered anything and you're really hurt, I'm sorry. I will be better. August 12, 2018
