Popular Call Of Duty: Warzone streamer and pro gamer Ethan 'Fifakill' Pink has admitted to and apologised for a series of offensive tweets from his past.
The tweets, which Pink claims he wrote when he was 13 years old, contain what he has acknowledged are some "vile" homophobic slurs. He issued a lengthy apology earlier this week in which he insisted he is no longer that person and that his past actions shouldn't reflect on his community.
Pink, who signed to esports and gaming organization Quadrant earlier this year, shared a twitlonger in which he addressed his past comments. It's not clear how or when these old tweets resurfaced, but somebody must have dug them up to prompt Pink's apology.
"Hey guys, something has just been brought to my attention that I am not proud of and that I wanted to address," the streamer wrote. "When I was 13, I used the 'f*g' in two tweets. It is a vile and derogatory word I am disgusted by this. This does not represent myself or my community and I hope my actions since then show that."
Pink finished by pledging to cement his support for the LGBTQ+ community with a "personal donation" and a charity stream, with all proceeds going to Stonewall.
"Those who know me and watch my streams will know I want nothing but to make people's days better," he finished.
Several Warzone pros and fellow streamers have come to Pink's defence since he shared his apology, with many arguing that the careless comments of a 13-year-old boy should not reflect on who a person has become - especially if they're able to take ownership of their mistakes.
