Team Mahi’s owner Manoj ‘Sentinel’ Kashyap, made some comments in one of his recent livestreams while discussing a recent incident involving a cheater who Riot Games banned.
Indiatimes allegedly reached out to Riot Games and received an official response from the Valorant studio. Riot is reportedly investigating the matter and will come to a conclusion in the next couple of weeks.
What Is The Incident?
Riot Games reportedly told Indiatimes, “We at Riot Games, have a zero-tolerance policy against gender discrimination and abuse. We try our best to ensure the best possible player experience, and we are aware of incidents that happen within our communities.” The company also told the news outlet that it will come to a conclusion in the next couple of weeks.
TM Sentinels Apology To Audience
Following the incident, TM Sentinel apologised for this incident through a video on his YouTube channel. He stated, “the choice of words that I used clearly shows that I am not a compassionate human being, and I am truly sorry.”
After TM Sentinel’s apology video, Team Mahi released an official statement that it will undergo some organizational changes. The esports org revealed that they do not stand by the comments made by Sentinel and the owner’s remarks do not represent the values of Team Mahi.
The owner has taken a step back from day-to-day operations and other commitments on behalf of the organization.
