Overwatch Contenders admin fired for racist statements following pause scandal

An Overwatch Contenders tournament administrator has been removed from their position following the discovery of past conversations that involved a racial slur, the organization announced today. The administrator was also at the center of a community uproar over a seemingly unfair pause situation during a recent Contenders match. 

The Overwatch Contenders organization put out a statement earlier today, updating fans that it let go of a tournament administrator. But it did not elaborate, only saying that “there is no place for racism within Overwatch Contenders.”
