UPDATE 2: LowTierGod and CeroBlast have been handed bans from all Capcom events for more information on this story click here.
UPDATE: CeroBlast has now been banned from all FGC events after instances of her using racial slurs in Tweets and on Twitch came to light. For more on that story click here.
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.
Sigh... I have high tolerance for a lot of shit. I know LTG talks a lot of shit and doesn't mean it sometimes but, dude you got kids watching your stream. This is what you're teaching them lol...— BDG CeroBlast @ Living under a rock (@BlastCero) April 16, 2020

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.
Well everyone i guess thats it for me in the "FGC". A stream clip aimed at one person unethically gets me banned from events over something that had nothing to do with events i attended. Ive seen people accused of worse. But it's all good you lames never liked me anyways lol. ✌ pic.twitter.com/rFDi190EvL— D.Sparrow (@SparrowsAlive) April 18, 2020
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.
