Why did G2 Let Rodriguez Go?
Just because he had partied with Andrew Tate, that was the only reason to let the CEO go? Well, G2 has given a statement that they will not support misogyny of any sort, as the Esports community has been extremely toxic to the female players all the time. In fact, to become more inclusive, they have even tried to bring in the first female player in their League of Legends team too. They are trying to be more open toward female gamers who want to play competitive. They are quite aware of how females have to face unnecessary discrimination just because they are girls and are playing video games. They want to break the stigma that girls cannot play video games, and they are to stay away from it. Hence, this step was much needed to keep them aligned with their vision this year. Rodriguez has not said much about G2’s decision, and we just have to assume that he understands the situation and will be able to move on from it.
