Riot Games have let a developer go after he made comments about a streamer on a Discord chat.
Known as Riot Sanjuro, he expressed his dislike of infamous streamer ‘Tyler1’, a streamer who has earned himself 20 account bans and a perma-ban from Riot Games. Riot Sanjuro told players that “Honestly… it’s fine he’ll die from a coke overdose or testicular cancer from all the steroids… then we’ll be gucci.”
He has since apologised to Tyler1, and been let go from his position at Riot Games.
Another employee of Riot Games apologised on Reddit to the community and to Tyler1, stating “We will be taking action internally to address this”.
