Overwatch League player fired over alleged sexual misconduct


With the league conducting an investigation now.

Update: The Boston Uprising has now confirmed that DreamKazper’s contract has been terminated.

Original story: Overwatch League player Jonathan ‘DreamKazper’ Sanchez has been suspended over allegations of sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old girl over Twitter.

Sanchez, who plays for Boston Uprising, has been accused of “taking advantage” of the 14-year-old. His accuser has written a letter, since posted to Twitter, that says Sanchez “abused his power as a player to coerce [the girl] into sending him nude pictures and engaging in explicit [FaceTime] activities.”

Photos of the conversation between the girl and Sanchez have also been posted to Twitter, here and here.

“Earlier today the Overwatch League was made aware of the allegations against Jonathan ‘DreamKazper’ Sanchez,” a statement from the league itself reads. “He is suspended indefinitely while the league investigates this matter.”

“The Boston Uprising has learned of allegations against Jonathan ‘DreamKazper’ Sanchez,” a statement from the team reads. “We take all allegations of this nature very seriously and as a result DreamKazper has been suspended from the Boston Uprising indefinitely. We will not be commenting any further while we investigate the matter.”

Sanchez has yet to comment on the matter, though we’ll bring you more on this situation as it develops.

The Overwatch League is developing a reputation of idiotic behaviour — recently, players have been suspended over racist gestureshomophobic slurs and other Code of Conduct violations.

Overwatch is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
