eUnited CoD pro JKap apologizes for use of homophobic slur

Two time Call of Duty world champion Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan has apologized for his use of homophobic language, after it was caught on a fellow CoD pro’s stream.

JKap has been a hot topic in the CoD community of late, after he was moved to a substitute role for eUnited following their disappointing finish at CWL Fort Worth.

There has also been community discussion over his relationship with eUnited teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks, and how much this impacted the decision to drop him from the starting line-up.

It was while referring to Clayster that JKap used the homophobic slur, which was picked up on the stream of 100 Thieves player Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams.

On March 23, JKap issued a public apology via Twitter. JKap explained that he was sorry for using the term and that he let his emotions get the best of him “in the moment”.

Kaplan went on to acknowledge that the use of the term was “unacceptable” and that it “does not reflect my values as a person”. The apology concludes that the behaviour will not be repeated.

I want to apologize for something I said the other day. I let my emotions get the best of me in the moment and used a homophobic slur. This is unacceptable behavior from me and does not reflect my values as a person. I'm sorry for the language I used and it will not happen again.

His apology has received a largely positive response, with fellow Call of Duty pro Renato ‘Saints’ Forza replying “salute bro”, and others generally being forgiving of what happened.

It is clear JKap wants to draw a line under the incident and focus on what's next in his career, which currently lies in the balance as he sits on the bench of eUnited.
