I have ran into players who use the name "****" in there online & forum names it still has not been changed.
I'm going to assume you think the "Jew" in his name is offensive or something. Which is terribly racist of you.

Life lesson learned the hard way.

This probably isn't the type of job he's looking for if he shows such behaviour.

We hold our employees to higher standards of discretion and professionalism, and take matters that impact our community extremely seriously. and We have since unbanned the account that was negatively impacted by this regrettable turn of events.

As a result of this unfortunate situation the employee in question is no longer with Riot Games. Additionally, we will be reviewing internal policy and training procedures to take steps to prevent such incidents from happening in the future.

Thanks,

Well done Pendragon. Much respect to Riot for doing the right thing in this situation and showing the public that they hold their employees to a high standard.

No one wins in this sort of thing man.

Obviously his ancestors are racists. You should ban them
