Brazilian CS:GO team MIBR have fined Fernando ‘fer’ Alvarenga after the star player made a “racist” comment in a recent Twitch stream.

Fer reportedly made a comment earlier this week, targeting the looks of people from different races. He then reportedly mocked people who were going to call him out for being “racist,” before jumping back into game.

He then reportedly mocked people who were going to call him out for being “racist,” before jumping back into game. After the clip went viral, MIBR issued a statement condemning the star’s actions, and punishing him with a fine.

“Fer, one of our players, made a mistake,” MIBR said in their June 2 statement, according to a translation. “He was wrong. He made comments in his stream that do not reflect our values, and we believe, that also do not reflect his values.

“Fer knows and recognizes this type of language feeds a narrative that is wrong and deeply damaging. Instead of hiding, he faced the problem and apologized.

“We will impose a fine on fer for his comments, and work with him to choose organizations that promote racial equality. The amount of [his] fine will be allocated to these institutions.”

The amount fer was fined by MIBR was not disclosed by the org. The star has also since come out and issued an apology to fans.

“I apologize if I somehow gave an impression of racism in my stream,” he said on Twitter, according to a translation. “Everyone who knows me knows that I have no prejudice and that I am open to any kind of opinions and debates.”

While he was issued a monetary fine, fer faced no further sanctions from MIBR. He was allowed to line-up for them in the Blast Premier Spring Showdown against Chaos Esports Club.

The former major champions drew Inferno with the North American upstarts 15-15. They lead their group, containing fellow South American team FURIA and Gen.G, with one game left to play.

Why NiKo isn’t the answer to G2’s CSGO crisis | Richard Lewis

Rumors are circulating that G2 Esports are set to trade for Bosnian superstar fragger Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač in order to solve their recent struggles on the server.

Richard Lewis breaks down this potential roster move in his latest video for Dexerto taking a look at what this move could potentially mean for G2’s current roster as well as if NiKo could mesh well within the team.

One potential problem Richard states is the fact that this current G2 roster isn’t just one piece of the puzzle away from getting back to the top of the world rankings and actually, FaZe are probably more likely to win now more than G2.

Another issue is that NiKo’s ego may upset the applecart in G2 especially considering the form that KennyS is in at the moment may lead to NiKo being in that all too familiar situation where he has to carry a team on his own back as he had at FaZe clan.
