GamerLegion, a renowned esports organization, recently found itself in the midst of controversy, leading to the decisive parting of ways with Chloe “KittyTM” Geaney, a member of GL Prism, over discriminatory comments.
GamerLegion acted promptly, severing ties with KittyTM after just two days following the surfacing of screenshots on Twitter, allegedly showing the player making racist and derogatory remarks via in-game text channels. This rapid response underscores the organization’s commitment to upholding the values of respect and inclusivity within the esports community.
GamerLegion prides itself on uniting a diverse team, bound by a shared passion for esports. The organization emphasizes the importance of promoting diversity, especially within its female teams, aiming to break down stereotypes and foster greater representation for women in esports. The dismissal of KittyTM reflects GamerLegion’s firm stance against discriminatory behavior that tarnishes the spirit of competition inherent in esports.
The departure of KittyTM leaves GL Prism with four active players, currently holding a 1-1 record in ESL Impact League Season 4 Europe. Despite the setback, the team continues to compete, with upcoming fixtures in ESL’s flagship women’s league. GamerLegion remains dedicated to showcasing the talent and dedication of its players and inspiring more individuals to pursue their dreams in esports, irrespective of gender.
