Apex Legends pro faces backlash over transgender slur and deletes social media
Apex Legends pro Jaeden ‘Caprah’ Valle has deleted social media after facing backlash for using a transgender slur.
Apex Legends player Jaeden ‘Caprah’ Valle is once again facing backlash. Earlier this year, Caprah made the headlines after making a number of derogatory and offensive comments toward XSET player Sikezz.
A screenshot of a conversation over Discord showing a string of messages was made public, where then former teammates came forward, claiming that it wasn’t the first time they’ve had to deal with his toxicity.
The situation sparked a response from several of the biggest pros in the Apex Legends community. Now, Caprah has once again come under fire, this time facing backlash for using a transgender slur — leading him to delete his social media profiles.

Apologizing for his prior actions, Caprah claimed he likely “won’t play competitive Apex ever again.” However, months later, the player made a return to the competitive scene, joining Team SCS.
Now, the 17-year-old has been called out for the use of a slur towards transgender people, where during a scrim session, Caprah could be heard calling his opponent a “tr**ny f**k” after being eliminated.
Caprah was then called out by ‘Ideas‘ — the transgender player the slur was allegedly targeted towards.
“Loses con once immediately calls me a slur reformed btw how many times has it been 3, 4?” they wrote on Twitter/X.
Ideas also called out Caprah’s teammates for the behavior, before noting how several top players vouched that the 17-year-old was “reformed” before returning to pro play.
“@_Avexys @DeToXGOW this your new teammate? How many top players have directly vouched saying he is reformed? How you [going to] die one time and just spit it out like it’s nothing.
Caprah has since appeared to delete his social media platforms, with his Twitter/X account no longer available.
