Ninja bans ZexRow from Ninja Battles
The reigning FNCS Trios champions were put to shoot their dominance into Week two until MonsterDFace and BallaTW ran a post-game interviewed ZexRow.
From the interview, the Fortnite who threw shots in his teammate, Yung Calc, before embarking on a now-viral cuss-filled rant against everyone who placed out of the top-ten in the previous Solo FNCS competition.
Virtually everyone who watched this outburst needed a facepalm second — none more so than ZexRow’s teammates Yung Calc and Mackwood. Shortly after his interview was cut away, Mackwood tweeted that he and Calc were looking for a brand new third for Ninja Battles Week 2.
This triggered a series of longer apologies out of ZexRow, the first of which said,”I’m really really sorry about this, it was a very bad lapse in judgment and I did not think in the moment and forgot that there was children watching, and so that it was too much. Thank you to @Ninja for hosting the tournament and im sorry I ended it on this sour note”
ZexRow later issued a lengthier apology via TwitLonger, beating TSM, the fans, Ninja, and anyone else that he offended.
Fortnite fans seemed to be calling for TSM to fall ZexRow following his rant, but that’s probably a bit too much. He made a mistake and was incredibly disrespectful to Ninja, but didn’t state anything unforgivable. A ban in the rest of the tournament seems like a punishment that fits the crime.
- On May 29, Mackwood told his fans he and Yung Calc will be substituting ZexRow with Stretch for the rest of the Ninja Battles tournament collection. The next tournament occurs on June 4. We are just one week in and the storylines are already becoming sexy.
