The recent controversy flying around the NA fame holder Freakazoid who is very famous about his calm and holy nature when it comes to ‘not bullying people’ has emerged last night when he was trashtalking to s1mple. All of this was caught at CLG tarik’s stream.
When you claim that you don’t care about black or white people, and while coming across a black man, if you feel insecure, that is hypocrisy at the best level and such is a metaphorical comparison for Freakazoid’s ideology. The NA star always has been know for his humble and gentle preaching on how we should not bully people regardless of their looks and gameplay.Even though this time, he was mocking someone who is faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrr better than him, he went on to shittalk to s1mple about how baad his gameplay is and how much left out and disgrace he is for whatever team he plays for.
The stream on which, whole of this was recorded found it’s way to Reddit where thousands of community member shared their disappointments and anger towards the hypocrite. Joining the community members were some of the relatives of Freakazoid, journalists, analyzers and reputed YouTubers.
Trashtalking is not a big deal when it comes to Esports, people do mock each other in-game while to apprehend their complexity and disassemble on common consent. But why was this reaction or event was over-hyped? Why people were so harsh on his mocking to s1mple? Hasn’t this happened even in the past when fnatic’s team mocked NiP Get_Right when he was up for handshake? Then what has made people so much salty about this?
“If you bully it’s just a sign of weakness from the person because they are insecure about themselves” – Freakazoidd
Well, now you know why the proverb, “Practice what you preach.” is so popular and accurate. Freakazoid and s1mple’s whole of stream transcript has been drawn out by a fellow user NALMAO, which is pasted below:

freakazoid: “hey have a nice day.” (never says that he isn’t stewie)
Cloud9 Manager’s View
“Cloud9 players should strive to set a positive example for those who look up to them. Friendly trash talk is one thing but when personal attacks begin a line has been crossed regardless of it being online or on LAN. Ryan will be expected to do all he can to promote a healthy atmosphere within the community. The biggest lesson to take away from this is to think before you speak or act. The professional scene as a whole can learn from this event. As CS:GO grows to new heights so must our sportsmanship standards, which includes everyone, not just fREAKAZOiD.”

“I have failed my community, teammates, and organization. I would like to offer a sincere apology to s1mple for the poor decision I made last night. The way I behaved was unacceptable. I expect better from myself, and will do all I can to meet those expectations going forward. This experience has taught me that one slip up can cost you everything. At the end of the day I would like to make amends with s1mple and move forward from this. I hope he and the community can forgive my actions.”
– Ryan “fREAKAZOiD” Abadir, Cloud9 CS:GO Player
Cloud9’s take on this
This surely is not what every other individual or organization is prepared for, these are the spontaneous acts which lead to certain point of disagreements and leads to disgraceful comments from the community. Cloud9 fined Freakazoid for a whole month of salary from which 50% shall be entitled to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, and the other half to Born This Way Foundation. Also Freakazoid would be persuaded to attend an anti-bullying seminar in Los Angeles, CA hosted by PACER.
