The allegations came to light on March 27, when he was accused of sending sexually explicit content to underage girls.
The team benched him and began an internal investigation the following day. The team played brussen last week in their match against the Defiant.
This is not the first time the Uprising have dropped a player for sexual misconduct. A DPS player for the Uprising in 2018 named DreamKazper was dropped by the Uprising and suspended from the Overwatch League indefinitely following such allegations.
The Uprising play again next week when they take on the Houston Outlaws.
