Earlier today the Overwatch League was made aware of the allegations against Jonathan "DreamKazper" Sanchez. He is suspended indefinitely while the league investigates this matter.

The allegations stem from a collection of (currently unverified) screenshots, and a post stating that Sanchez, who is 21, engaged in a series of conversations with a 14-year-old fan, some of which were of a sexual nature. The post and one of the screenshots suggest Sanchez was aware of the fan’s age during the conversations.
Sanchez plays DPS for Boston Uprising, who are currently fourth in the Overwatch League standings, with a 14-8 record. Both Uprising and the League are investigating the allegations. Sanchez is yet to release a public statement.
