Former GAM Esports top laner Zeros has been permanently banned from the Vietnam Championship Series after making some inappropriate comments about COVID-19 on his stream.
The league made the announcement earlier today, saying that the 20-year-old League of Legends pro made statements on his personal stream that would be detrimental to the best interests of the league, which is a violation of Rule 8.2.5 of the Code of Conduct. His ban will go into effect immediately.
Zeros reportedly said that he wished that the coronavirus pandemic would worsen so that the winner of the 2021 VCS Spring Split wouldn’t be able to attend the upcoming 2021 Mid-Season Invitational, according to a translation posted by the social media executive of the Saigon Buffalo. Zeros and SBTC Esports barely missed the playoffs this season, finishing in fifth place with a 7-7 record.
The young top laner is most known for his time with GAM Esports and Phong Vũ Buffalo. He won three VCS championships throughout his three-year career
