Fortnite player Daniel “Dubs” Walsh is suspended from FaZe Clan. After dropping a racial slur on another player’s stream, the 15-year-old faced immediate consequences. On Twitter, FaZe stated, “FaZe Clan will not tolerate any form of hate speech. It is imperative for us to foster an inclusive environment in this community. Due to his actions, we are suspending Dubs indefinitely from representing FaZe Clan while in professional competition, streaming, or posting on his social channels.”
Dubs and all other FaZe members are required to go through sensitivity training after the incident.
Dubs also took to Twitter to apologize. “I can’t even describe how sorry I am. I did not intend to be hurtful in any way but what I said was still hurtful, insensitive, and wrong. The word shouldn’t have been in my vocabulary and I apologize from the bottom of my heart to everyone I offended by using it. You deserve better.”
Dubs was signed by FaZe in 2019 and qualified for the Fortnite World Cup in both the solo and duo divisions.
