Right before Worlds 2022, the boss of G2 Esports angered the Western gaming community and called for each other to boycott this team.
In the Western League of Legends community, G2 Esports is considered a “European circus” because it often “comedies” both on and off the computer screen. That’s why this team owns a large fan base compared to other long-standing teams.
But recently, the boss of G2 – Carlos “ocelote” Rodríguez Santiago caused a stir in the community when he attended a party with Andrew Tate.
According to research, Andrew Tate is a former kickboxing athlete, after retiring he switched to the field of marketing and has a lot of followers. Surprisingly, Andrew Tate has been repeatedly criticized by the community for his disdainful statements about women, he also has many controversial words about victims of sexual assault.
So when he attended a party with Andrew Tate, ocelote was fiercely criticized and became a “despise woman” in the eyes of the gaming community. As a result, he made a blunt statement: “No one can stop my friendship, I will draw the line here, I party with whoever I want.”
At this time, the online community seemed to “explode” and there were many people who criticized and boycotted G2 Esports. There was a fan who even tore up G2’s shirt to prove his indignation.
A while ago, G2 Esports once revealed its female LoL team. As soon as the above drama broke out, many people “cheat” G2 to recruit Andrew Tate to be the coach for the female LoL team.
Even Ashley Kang – the famous female Esports reporter LCK also voiced that Andrew Tate is the one who “promotes deviant doctrines and views”.
Even Yuli himself – former LEC referee and G2 streamer also sarcastically ocelote: “G2 headquarters is trying to control the damage caused by the CEO.”
Of course, this incident has absolutely nothing to do with G2’s League of Legends players. However, the gaming community is vehemently throwing stones at the ocelote, so the League of Legends team in G2 is also “angry” to it. Currently, the case is still hotly discussed in the Western gaming community.
