Atlanta phase, a Call of Duty The Esports team has apologized following backlash for a nasty Tweet that many felt was misogynistic in nature.
The Tweet (which has since been deleted, but was reposted by the user JakeSucky next to the apology) included a collage of the eight male team members with female filters on it, reading “How many drinks to take them home?” Unsurprisingly, most didn’t take the post well and felt it was offensive and poorly crafted.

Atlanta Faze posted an apology response shortly after deleting the Tweet, acknowledging that “it’s not okay.”
He continues: “We understand that there is no place for misogynistic or harassing behavior and that women and Call of Duty community deserves better. The message ends by stating that the team has “addressed the issue personally” and is committed to “moving forward in a positive way for all”.
That’s not the only controversy surrounding the Faze clan in recent memory. Last year, one member (Frazier “Kay” Khattri) was completely removed from the fan following an alleged cryptocurrency scam. Meanwhile, Jarvis “Jarvis” Khattri, Nikan “Nikan” Nadim and Jakob “Teeqo” have each been suspended for three months.
In addition, Fortnite Player Evan “Cented” Barron was removed from the clan on July 3 this year due to the use of a racial slur in a video that surfaced online. Faze posted a Tweet in response stating “FaZe is constantly evolving and we expect our members to do the same. Cented is permanently removed from FaZe due to its use of hate speech. We and the gaming community as a whole can no longer tolerate discriminatory language. »
