Esports pro got kicked out from team after “racist” remark
Hating people from other races gets ends careers apparently.
Polish pro StarCraft II player Szymon “Guru” Nieciąg found himself in the hotseat and got kicked out of his now former team True eSport after what is said to be racist and/or anti-religious remarks in a video game livestream.
Happened just early this week, Guru who was playing against Dario “TLO” Wünsch suddenly blurted out in StarCraft II’s in-game all chat the statement “I hate Muslims” which then resulted to True eSport to quickly announce that they have removed Guru from their team roster.
We distance ourselfes from what Guru said on @LiquidTLO's stream. We don't share his opinions and he is not part of the team anymore.

As to why Guru suddenly went and blurted the said remark, viewers who are participating in the discussion over at Team Liquid’s Forums regarding the issue state they there was really no context behind saying it rather, as one commenter described it, the chat came out of the blue.
Guru has played with Italian based team True eSport since back December 2015 and has won 2 minor tournament titles under their banner before being release due to the racism incident.
