Fragicago winner apologizes for post-match comments
Over the weekend, we saw Badass take home the Fragicago crown in front of a less-than-welcoming crowd. Due to the reputation of the players on Badass, boos were heard ringing out in the venue following their LAN victory. It was a tough scene, and during the post-match interview with Shane "shane" Dressler some of the agitation showed.
In an illy-applied comparison, the Badass player said that the fans acted as if they wanted his team to lose "more than they would have wanted the holocaust to not have happened".
Unsurprisingly, the comments did not go over well and has since been shared widely on X, formerly Twitter, and Reddit. In response to the comments, shane immediately understood that what he said was inappropriate and a mistake. In a thread, the player said it "was the worst analogy I could have ever possibly chosen" and that he "genuinely apologizes". In explaining his state of mind, Shane explained that the crowd's reactions had left him flustered and rendered him unable to think clearly about what to say during the post-match interview.
Furthermore, shane has explained that it has been years since the incidents that have made him and his teammates infamous within the community. He does not want "to be defined by something that [he] did as a teenager".
It is an unfortunate slip of the tongue that will not further improve the player's reputation. In response to the official Fragadelphia tweet announcing the team as the winners, many replied with scorn and derision.
The Badass team are next scheduled to play in the ESL Challenger League Season 46 playoffs against Mythic.
