Dallas Fuel releases HarryHook after misogynistic comments

The former Apex champion was outed publicly for sending plenty of derogatory messages towards women.
Dallas Fuel releases HarryHook after misogynistic comments

Dallas Fuel has officially dropped the last remaining member of the Apex winning roster EnVyUs, as the Overwatch League team announced Jonathan "HarryHook" Tejedor Rua is no longer a part of the organisation following misogynistic comments.

"Today, we informed Jonathan 'HarryHook' Tejedor Rua of his release from the Dallas Fuel as a result of player misconduct. We thank him for his four years with the organization and wish him the best in the future."

The comments the Spanish support player made via Discord include the use of multiple slurs against women, describing some as nothing more than "wh*res" and claiming that "there are a lot of girls I know, they are just b*tches. What's the problem?"

"I really didn’t want to come forward about this (HarryHook's sexist comments) but, because people want to know: this isn’t isolated behavior, unfortunately. I attempted to bring this up to him and these were some of his responses," Twitter user icysorrows commented while sharing images of Tejedor's statements.

This departure comes at a time when the Dallas Fuel is in a period of turmoil, as Korean DPS Gui-Un "Decay" Jang and Head Coach Aaron "Aero" Atkins recently left the org as well.

You can see what's left of the Dallas Fuel in action next 7th August against the Washington Justice in their first match of the Countdown Cup.
