Sadokist under fire for using racial slur during birthday stream

PUBG car

A celebratory birthday stream turned ugly when CS:GO commentator Matthew “Sadokist” Trivett used a racial slur and other abusive language last night.

Find out how Rainbow Six Siege is working to fight toxic behavior.

Trivett linked to a livestream sometime after midnight in a pair of now-deleted tweets, in which he also said he was drunk. Between matches of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Trivett used the slur while talking about his prowess in esports.

Dot Esports reports that Trivett then answered a question about a community member by graphically suggesting that the member should kill himself.

Trivett has not made a statement about the incident as of this writing, but the tweets announcing the broadcast, as well as all videos on his Twitch channel, have been deleted.

Overwatch League commentator Christopher “MonteCristo” Mykkles mentioned the outburst in a tweet this morning:

Geoff “iNcontrol” Robinson weighed in as well, saying that he doesn’t believe Trivett is a racist, but that “slipping up” means someone has those words at the ready.

Trivett is one of the most popular casters in esports, known primarily for his work with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
