Los Angeles Gladiators have issued a rather odd statement from head coach David “dpei” Pei that many feel is unneeded and overly sensitive. The statement stems from an “incident” last night involving dpei and a member of the Houston Outlaws. Pei had bumped into players backstage and felt they needed to make an apology in public.
You can read the full statement from Pei down below…
“Yesterday during the Outlaws match, I inadvertently bumped into two of the Outlaws players. I hadn’t been watching where I was going. I was distracted thinking about what to say to our team for Kings Row, but I wanted to apologize immediately. I apologized to their players immediately after the game and Tairong shortly after. I am sincerely sorry for my actions and assure you that there was no malicious intent. Even though it was an accident, it was still unprofessional of me to shoulder bump players from another team so again, I am sorry.”
Needless to say, this statement has already became the subject to loads of memes within the Overwatch community.
