Former CEO and founder of G2 Esports Carlos "ocelote" Rodríguez has again shown support for his friend Andrew Tate, known for his misogynistic views.
ocelote said that Andrew Tate is a real man and people can’t cancel him again for supporting Tate, adding a number of obscene words.
He also announced he will not return to G2 Esports.
"I don't see myself returning to G2. G2 is going to succeed without me at the helm. There are very capable and inspirational people there, many of which I hired myself. Every beginning has an end. Don't be sad that it's over. Be happy that it happened," he said.
As BLIX.GG had reported earlier, ocelote stepped down as G2's CEO after the scandal by inviting Andrew Tate to the organization's party. Rodríguez initially defended his right to invite whoever he wanted, but the community criticized him even more harshly.
As a result, the ocelot not only left the chairmanship of G2, the G2 Valorant roster was also excluded from Valorant Partnership program. Later, Riot Games temporarily suspended him from holding any managerial or operational position within a team or an organization in a Riot-sanctioned competition and forced ocelote to complete sensitivity and executive trainings if he wants to return to the Riot-sanctioned esports ecosystem in any official capacity.
