Twitter reacts to Fortnite player Sin being racist
On May 23, a Twitter post by esports journalist and commentator Jake "JakeSucky" Lucky went viral after he shared a short clip featuring the Fortnite player. In the clip, the gamer can be heard saying the following:
"Just in case there's a zombie apocalypse or a n****r outbreak, we got the armory n***a! We got the armory! Got the ammo and the pistols."
After his clip went viral, the Fortnite player confirmed that it was him in the clip and doubled down on his take by providing a more offensive stance while trying to justify his racist tone in the 12-second long clip. The tweet has since been deleted as his Twitter account is no longer available.
Fortnite pro and Twitch streamer Av stated that Epic Games already knows about the accused player and has not taken any action against him.
Some Twitter users stated that racist players like him are the reason why the mainstream media dislikes the Fortnite community.
Fans mentioned how the Fortnite player ruined his gaming career through the short clip.
The gaming community celebrated after they came to know that his account had been disabled.
A few Twitter users pointed out controversial YouTubers Daniel "Keemstar" and IShowSpeed and stated how their respective fans were absent from the conversation thread.
Twitter user zack (@zarrs1x) mentioned the way the gamer had stockpiled his arsenal and stated that it was not the correct way to keep ammunition and firearms together.
The person in talks was due to compete in the official Fortnite Competitive series and was a semi-final contender to play in the fourth game.
At the time of writing, no comment has been made on the cancellation of his participation. The Fortnite player's Twitter account has reportedly been banned, and all of his prior tweets and messages have been removed from the social media platform.
