Epic Games has report­ed­ly kicked a Fort­nite team from the ongo­ing Fort­nite Cham­pi­on series (FNCS) after a tweet from a team­mate left some rather nasty things to say about Fort­nite’s direc­tor, Don­alds Mustard.

The tweet in ques­tion, from play­er Wrigley, has already been delet­ed, and the account deac­ti­vat­ed. Eurogamer did man­age to spot the tweet, and report­ed that it said “Like lit­er­al­ly fuck­ing k!ll you$elf @DonaldMustard.”

Team­mate Dic­tate shared an email, sup­posid­ly from Epic, that spells out what hap­pened. It said the team would be dis­qual­i­fied and removed from the FNCS effec­tive imme­di­ate­ly due to a vio­la­tion of the tour­na­ment rules. Specif­i­cal­ly, Epic cit­ed Sec­tion 8.1.2, which states, “Play­ers must be respect­ful of oth­er play­ers, Event Admin­is­tra­tors, spec­ta­tors, and sponsors.”

Wrigley’s team was in last place, but even so, this would have made the team a good por­tion of mon­ey. Wrigley’s team­mates are try­ing to appeal, since they can’t fig­ure out whey Epic did­n’t allow them to swap some­one else for Wrigley after the infraction.

There are four FNCS sea­sons for the 2021 series, fea­tur­ing a $3 mil­lion prize pool, for a total of $12 mil­lion across all four sea­sons. There will also be mid-year and end-of-year tour­na­ments where top play­ers from each region can com­pete for $8 mil­lion in prize money.
