StarCraft II player disqualified from tournament after "rape" tweet

Ukranian booted from Fragbite Masters Season 3 after "scary" post.


Ukrainian StarCraft player Mihaylo "Kas" Hayda has been disqualified from the Fragbite Masters Season 3 tournament after tweeting that he planned to "rape" a female opponent, as reported by Deadspin.

Here's the tweet, via @FeedMeSC2.

Hayda's opponent, Madeleine "MaddeLisk" Leander, said the entire situation was "scary," speaking in a comment on Esport:

"A few minutes into the first map the game was paused. I had no idea why but it was because of the tweet. The game went on and I lost 0-2. When the match was over I saw this. A tweet with the text "Going to rape some girl soon #fragbitemasters" written by my opponent.

"I don't even know what to say. I was very surprised to say the least. This coming from a pro player is scary. The organizers did what they could. They asked Kas to apologize and talked about it after."

The tournament booted Hayda immediately.

Hayda has since apologised for his behaviour.
