Cyclops Athlete Gaming Fires Call Of Duty Manager For Verbal Misconduct

The Japanese esports team Cyclops Athlete Gaming recently fired its Call of Duty manager, Kbaton, for verbal misconduct. This comes after it was discovered on Twitter that he mocked the LGBTQ+ community as well as disabled individuals. Shortly after these comments were discovered, Kbaton’s social media profiles were deleted.

Kbaton’s misconduct came to light following the firing of another Cyclops Athlete Gaming team member, Kana “Tanukana” Tani. Cyclops Athlete Gaming had to conduct an internal investigation into its players after Tanukana’s release. It was at that time that the company discovered Kbaton’s offensive remarks.

Cyclops Athlete Gaming has had a repeated history of these kinds of issues. According to Akihabara News, Taiyo “Ayagator” Hirayama, a current member of the organization’s Rainbow Six Siege team, was found to have made discriminatory statements towards Chinese and Korean people prior to joining Cyclops.
