An esports professional has been criticized after a video surfaced online showing an individual allegedly fortnite Grand Final Champion Series Contender Sin, Displays a fully stocked weapon locker It states, in 2022, that stockpile firearms “only in the event of a zombie disaster or *gger outbreak.” Sigh, I hate this world we live in sometimes.

Sin, or Sin3278, is not new to the game’s professional circuit. According to player stats tracking database fortnite Keep track ofSen has competed in various tournaments since at least July 2019 fortnite hero series (or FNCS) appearing in October 2020, which is a pretty big deal. FNCS is fortniteThe most famous esports competition. I mean, it’s hosted by developer Epic Games. Getting this stage is basically fortnite stardom. He didn’t put that high on his initial descent but has continued to compete in the FNCS over the years. He slowly rose up the ranks, and on May 22, he and fellow duo Acro finished second in a semi-final competition, securing them a place in the End of this week Grand Finals. You can watch the end of the tournament today fortniteOfficial YouTube channel.

On the same day, colleague fortnite Pro and rival FNCS North America Eastern Nexy Share a video of Sin Where Sin, who was standing inside what appeared to be a very white cabinet, was supposed to boast an “Armory” of deadly weapons. There are many rifles, pistols, shotguns, blades, loads and a lot of ammo. Sen said in the short clip that all of this was “just in case there was a zombie apocalypse or a zombie outbreak.” As if such a thing would be a reason for it this is He is severely deficient.

“crazy how [this] Child Sin3278 is allowed to play in groups after tweeting this,” Nexy said along with a 13-second video. It went viral, and caught the attention of esports watcher Jake Lucky, who also disbelief tweet. Lucky later shared a screenshot of Sin Double on the videoconfirming that it was him, saying he “didn’t threaten anyone and didn’t say [he’s] I’ll do anything.” There are other receipts for Sen’s tweets floating too, where he Also defend the video He admitted that he was a “racist and proud”.

Kotaku I’ve reached out to Epic Games and Nexy for comment.

Akrow, Sen’s teammate, has distanced himself From the sayings of sin. He tweeted that he didn’t “agree with” Anything you did or said is a sin. However, it also appears that Acro has hidden responses which shows him previously reacting to Sin’s video in a lighter way, complete with crying laughing emoji.

Kotaku Reach out to Acro and Sin for comment.

The statement of sin aroused the indignation of the competition fortnite Scene. Some players like Jonathan “Young Calculator” Weber, tweeted that this video needs more attention from something like the FBI. Pro Alexander “Av” Vanderveen He said The developer “has information about him [Sin] For a week” without implementing any application yet. And some black players like Apex Legends streamer Ninjayla And the University of Maryland Esports Director Sergio Braque Express how this affects blacks. Brack said, “We don’t just make these things. Black people are not valued, protected, or respected in this space, and I remember that on a regular basis…” Lemme tells you, Brack is not wrong here.

So far, Epic Games hasn’t addressed this issue publicly, so it’s unclear if and how the video will affect Sin’s participation in FNCS. All of this comes shortly after Buffalo, New York was rocked by a hate-fuelled massacre in which an 18-year-old white man opened fire at a local grocery store in a predominantly black neighborhood and broadcast the murders on Twitch. Government agencies such as the Department of Justice and politicians including Attorney General Letitia James are investigating both shooting And the flowing rnotform.
