Toronto Esports’ Overwatch player Matt “Dellor” Vaughn’s career has met its end even before it really started to take off after a disastrous way of dealing with being called out was caught live.

The gist of the situation, Dellor, who was playing Widowmaker, got called out by his teammate after being sniped by the enemy Widowmaker as he attempts to peek through the enemy’s defense line, his response involved a near 30-second tirade of the N-word, which got clipped for he was streaming live on Twitch, and caught the attention of his followers, the internet, and ultimately, his handlers.

Toronto Esports was quick on their decision regarding the matter, releasing Dellor from the team on the grounds of contract breaching concerning Discrimination.

 Toronto Esports has today announced the release of Matt “Dellor” Vaughn from their organization, citing breach of contract. The circumstances of the dismissal relate to an incident where Dellor used abusive and discriminatory racial language while streaming. “Toronto Esports is an organization built on inclusivity, and we have always had a zero- tolerance policy for any forms of discrimination.” Said President Ryan Pallett. “Immediately upon learning of the incident, the player was interviewed, admitted to the offence, and was notified that his contract with the organization was being terminated”

Dellor also posted his apology and thoughts on the matter through a lengthy tweet, followed up by expressing his decision to quit Esports entirely.
