The popular caster was celebrating his birthday by participating in an Ask Me Anything session and playing Player Unknowns Battlegrounds on his personal stream. Things then took a turn for the worse, as an intoxicated Sadokist was heard saying the N-word on the live stream. The footage soon found its way onto social media by the way of Twitter user DonHaci. Sadokist also went on to tell DonHaci to "kill himself"

Many promiment members of the esports community took to social media to speak up on the controversy.

Fellow CS:GO casters Janko "YNK" Paunovic and Jason "Moses" O'Toole condemned Sadokist's behavior, but are facing criticism from members of the community who do not feel that it is enough of a response.
