CS:GO veteran Christopher ‘GeT_RighT’ Alesund has apologized after being criticized for wearing a US Marine uniform in one of his Instagram posts.

GeT_RighT, who is one of the most iconic players in CS:GO, found himself on the receiving end of some backlash after he had the opportunity to try on a US Marine uniform.

The Ninjas in Pyjamas star shared a few photos with fans on his Instagram and Twitter while wearing the uniform but quickly received some harsh responses from a handful of his followers.

DreamHackGeT_RighT is one of the most popular CS:GO pros.

In the post titled “Captain”, the Swedish pro was ironically displaying a former sergeant major’s US Marine Corps uniform who had given him the chance to try it on.

However, some fans began to criticize GeT_RighT’s choice of attire in the comments, such as one saying, “You lost a long term fan, you didn’t earn that uniform.”

GeT_RighT then explained to fans that his post was not meant to be disrespectful towards those that have served in the military and expressed that he just wanted to share his chance to try the uniform on with his fans.

“It’s not about that brother, I got the chance to try it out and nothing more. You can hate me/feel like I’ve disrespected you after that and that wasn’t something I would never want to do”, GeT_RighT wrote.

When responding to another fan who detailed why trying the outfit on could be seen as disrespectful, GeT_RighT issued an apology to those who were offended by his posts and claimed that he had no intention of doing so, “I’d respect what you say and I’d always do that and if I offended anyone with doing that. I’m very sorry, wasn’t my intention at all.”

Despite some of the criticism, the majority of the Swedish star’s followers responded positively for GeT_RighT’s latest posts with one even calling him “the CS:GO Major”, playing off the name of the year’s biggest tournaments.

GeT_Right, who has one CS:GO Major victory and five Major final appearances to his name, will be looking to live up to his new fan-given name as “The CS:GO major” at the StarLadder Berlin Major 2019.

The Swede will be getting into action during the Legends stage of the tournament on August 28, due to their Top 8 placing at the previous major, IEM Katowice 2019.

CS:GO is back on LAN, baby. The IEM Global Challenge 2020 marks the long-awaited return to offline events, and we’ve got all you need to know about the huge eight-team tournament right here.

CS:GO hasn’t had a big LAN since the IEM Katowice Major back in February 2020. The Rio Major was postponed again and again, before inevitably being cancelled due to the current global situation.

However, after months of waiting, a safe LAN is now on the menu, and it feels like Counter-Strike is back. The IEM Global Challenge features eight of the best teams from NA and Europe, duking it out over a huge $500,000 prize pool.

If you were doubting the results of the online era, and want to define a true champion of CS:GO in 2020 on LAN, this is one event you won’t want to miss.

The IEM Global Challenge 2020 will be streamed live on the ESL CS:GO Twitch channel. We’ve embedded the stream below for your convenience.

IEM Global Challenge 2020 teams

Eight teams from across the globe have descended on Europe for the IEM Global Challenge 2020. While there won’t be any crowds, the promise of LAN action is tantalizing enough for most fans watching along at home.

The usual suspects have climbed their way to the top, including world number one Vitality, 2020 breakout stars Heroic, and four-time Major winners Astralis.

That doesn’t mean there’s not new talent to keep your eyes out for. FURIA has had a stellar 2020 over in North America, and will be looking to prove that Brazilians have a team to rally behind come 2021. Chaos will also be looking to go out with a bang, after the organization announced they will be pulling out of CS:GO after the event.
