The new report sheds more light on Raizada's past and more alleged behavior by the Echo Fox Shareholder.


Raizada is accused of sending racist and anti-semitic insults to former NBA player Rick Fox and former Echo Fox CEO Jace Hall, and even allegedly threatening Fox’s family.

The new report comes from Upcomer the same day as the LCS gave Echo Fox a 60-day ultimatum to cut ties with Raizada or face punishment.

According to Michael Gortenburg, a former business associate of the Echo shareholder, this alleged behavior is nothing new from Raizada.

Raizada has been under fire for alleged racist and anti-semitic comments.


“What's happened with Rick Fox and Jace Hall is not fresh or new,” Gortenburg said. “This is repetitive and old. Everything you've seen here has happened before.”

According to Gortenburg, besides having a history of sending anti-semitic and racist slurs, Raizada has also threatened staff and associates, including Gortenburg’s son.

One of the most startling incidents mentioned in the report was when Raizada was arrested on July 8 2002 for assaulting a bank supervisor and calling two tellers “fucking whores” and “fucking bitches”.

Raizada was charged with two counts of battery and one count of disorderly conduct after what happened in the bank, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg, according to the report.

He also allegedly threatened his former partner Scott Asner saying, "[I'm] going to destroy you and everything you build. Go fuck yourself." According to Gortenburg and a screenshot obtained by Upcomer.

The report from Upcomer further details more of Raizada’s alleged actions in the past as brought forward by Gortenburg.

Gortenburg said it wasn’t personal animosity causing him to come forward with his story, but a desire to set the record straight.

“This is not a vengeance thing for me personally at all,” Gortenburg explained to Upcomer. “It's more of a ‘repair the world’ type of thing, and to give people the truth about what's going on.”
