    feeding the narrative that EA are the bad guys in the situation without even watching the video....

    I can’t believe it was stupid enough to upload the video with it in but I don’t think he should be banned for it.

    Context of how he meant it, he wasn't coming out & saying it to a person who is actually of that meaning, he was saying it in frustration, i'm sure we all use words like these, maybe not that one... but we use others. If you take things out of context & get offended, then you're apart of the problem with this we can't say anything else we'll offend someone. If the person is meaning got offend people sure, but if he's not directing it at you, then no issues.


    As I've said, if someone changes the context of it to get offended, that's on them & their view of things. Else we should just never voice our opinions incase of offending anyone.

    Most people would be reprimanded by their companies if they went on live television and called someone that, no different here where he’s representing the company. Justified!

    You hear worse words like that if you go outside for a week. Absolutely embarrassing. Used to hear that word everyday in schools even worse than that is used?

    It doesn’t matter whether he meant it or not, if you discriminate like that in a public video, there is going to be a backlash. What about if the word was racist? Everyone would understand.

    Almost everyone uses words like that. But he shouldnt use it in his videos/streams. Bit stupid of him

    A word being used frequently doesnt make it acceptable

    He was representing EA by being a pro player, they have no choice but to suspend him for that

    Problem is that he should have been very careful with everything he uploads. He was in support of Kurt and even started to rant on his Twitter so you know EA would have looked for every opportunity to catch him out and he just gave them the fuel. Why would you not check the video through before uploading it to be safe.

    Honestly people lack some common sense.

    HAHAHAHAHAAGAHAHAHAHAHA. EA THEY'VE DONE IT AGAIN


    1:30 in and dont believe a word he says, you dont get to that age without knowing the word is homophobic

    This 100%, he’s completely lying and knows exactly what that word means at his age. Even suggests it’s some kind of mainland European language rather than known in the UK.

    Deserves the ban

    They should get warnings then or have to apologize before they are banned. Being banned instantly would demotiavte you from ever playing the game ever again especially with the fact that theres other players who are qualified constantly abusing opponents they lose to etc...

    Giving a private warning is a bad PR move, just makes them look like they dont care.

    What others do or have done isnt relevant in his case though, they all need to be judged individually

    I think you are missing the bigger picture. Sending an in-game message where only the two people can see it is different to sending out a YouTube video to 200,000 people.

    Both have the same meaning, it just means that one didn't use common sense & sent it to more people, the result should be the same, as they're saying the same thing.

    Ok, I don't really like Tass, and it wasn't clever from him to upload the video with the censored word, but god, this SJW world is starting to freak me out, everyone gets offended of everything, he didn't hurt anyone by naming a stupid card in a video game, this is pathetic.

    Tass has obviously never left the house or his bubble if he doesn't realise the word is offensive
