Dalauan "LowTierGod" Sparrow has built his entire reputation around trash talk.

More well known for his antics outside the games he plays - mostly Street Fighter - and the offensive comments he throws around, it seems he might have gone too far this time.

LowTierGod was caught making transphobic comments after losing a match against Christina "CeroBlast" Tran which was being streamed on the former's YouTube channel. He was subsequently banned from all EVO events.



Confirmed via social media by LowTierGod himself just a couple of days after Community Effort Orlando (CEO) tournament organizers enforced the same ban, he felt as though the punishment was unwarranted.



LowTierGod became an infamous figure inside the fighting game community after several altercations with other FGC members.

After a verbal encounter with Jay "Viscant" Snyder, moving away from regular trash talk going for personal slander, Viscant won the grudge match during a Level Up event at Alex Valle's very own Wednesday Night Fights, prompting one of the most iconic post-match interviews in the history of the FGC.



A couple of years later, during one of his broadcasts, he insulted Mike "BrolyLegs" Begum, a handicapped professional Street Fighter player that uses his mouth to operate a fighting stick, causing a huge backlash in the community.



While the future of EVO in 2020 is uncertain, it's highly unlikely the ban will be lifted anytime soon.
