“Fillian was part of our community. Uh, said a bunch of very, very racist things on the stream. Uh, we called him and asked, ‘Why did you do that? on Discord. Because we already had a bad perception of them because they brought someone racist on DJ Night who was going around and calling people F-words and N-words. And we told them that it wasn’t cool, and we told them they should be very careful with racist stuff. And then they made a very racist joke live.”
