Fortnite pro Daniel “Dubs” Walsh is one of the most popular Fortnite players in the world. The latter is even a part of FaZe Clan, one of the biggest esports organizations in the world. He has remained a part of the organization for quite some time now and has gained a lot of popularity thanks to them. However, he messed up during one of his streams.
Fortnite Pro Dubs’ Incident
On February 29, Dubs was casually streaming Fortnite just like every other day. However, he ended up using a racial slur during the stream, something which no one appreciates in the world of esports. His clip went viral online and it caught the attention of many prominent figures in the esports community. FaZe Clan knew that this is something not acceptable and therefore suspended him from the organization to make him undergo sensitivity training.
In a statement published on March 1, FaZe claimed that they never tolerate any form of hate speech. And due to Dubs’ actions, they have suspended him for the time being and have asked him and other players to undergo sensitivity training immediately. Dubs also published an apology on Twitter on the same day claiming that he is really sorry for what he did and he never wanted to hurt anyone.
First Post After A Month
Now, after a month, the latter has made come back to social media. He has posted a long apology in which he has also talked about his sensitivity training. The 15-year old Fortnite pro apologized to everyone again for what he did, and that he has no words to describe how sorry he is. The player also added that the has learned a lot through the sensitivity training, and discovered through it that he wants to “play for everyone.”
His post is being well received by almost everyone in the esports community. Even the Owner of FaZe replied that he is proud of him. At the moment, FaZe is yet to provide a statement regarding whether Dubs is back in the organization or not. However, considering they retweeted his latest apology post, the Fortnite pro will most likely get back to stream soon under FaZe’s shade. In any case, it is great to see that he has realized his mistake and will avoid offending anyone from now on. Fortnite season 3 is also going to go live in a few weeks, and Dubs will have enough time to prepare for it.
