It was about a month ago that a single tweet from former G2 Esports CEO Carlos Rodríguez went viral. His response to the backlash of the content of the tweet, in which he showed a video of him partying with Andrew Tate, also went viral. 

Since then, he's been suspended by G2 Esports and even stepped down as the esports orgs CEO. Because of the tweet and the reaction by the community, Riot opened up their own investigation on the issue and whether he breached Riot rules. They've now announced their findings. 


Former G2 Esports CEO Suspended

In the announcement from Riot, the former G2 Esports CEO has been suspended and will have to partake in sensitivity and executive training before he will be able to come back to the Riot esports system. He's also suspended from owning any esports org until November 13, 2022. 

In their competitive ruling, Riot stated that Carlos Rodríguez "engaged in activity detrimental to the best interest of the League and Riot Games". The behaviour of the tweet and the backlash are in direct violation of Article 9.2.5 which states that: 

Team Managers/Members may not give, make, issue, authorise or endorse any statement or action having, or designed to have, an effect prejudicial or detrimental to the best interest of the League, Riot Games or its affiliates, or League of Legends, as determined in the sole and absolute discretion of the League.

Riot has given some leeway due to the quick response from G2 Esports when the drama boiled over in mid-September. What do you guys think of this ruling from Riot?
