The video is the content of the Twitch gameplay live by Hellfire, a Fort Night Prayer. Hellfire seemed to have been broadcasting a voice chat in Discord during the live commentary. The members who participated in the voice chat suddenly said, Your Nigar, and a discriminatory word for blacks. Twitch viewers also heard the words clearly. The main statement was Barron. According to PC Gamer, this video was recorded last year and spread on Twitter from around July 3 this year. He seemed to be controversial in the community. The next day, the FAZE CLAN was refused.
Following these punishments, Barron has posted an apology on Twitter cooperation service Twitlonger. He commented on the above statement, I shouldn’t have used such words. He tells him that his light action is ashamed. He also mentioned his recent behavior on SNS, and recalls that there were inappropriate actions, such as throwing messages in anger. The future trends have not been revealed.
