Recently, Clid, one of the most famous players on the South Korean scene, was banned for 1 year from competing in any league in the world. The decision came after an investigation into the case of sexual harassment committed by the player against two girls, one of whom was a minor.
Furthermore, the Esports Ethics Committee also imposed a punishment on the player and increased his sentence to 18 months, instead of 12, as the LCK had done. In other words, Clid is suspended by KeSPA until February 6, 2025.
According to the committee’s investigation, Clid was interrogated by the agency and assumed the entire content of the messages, in addition to the fact that he had actually committed the accusations made by the two girls.
Understand Clid’s case
Last week, several prints began to circulate on social media with conversations between Clid and two women. In the first case, the jungler would have sent sexual messages to the girl, even though she had not responded to them.
In the second situation, Clid would have flirted with a minor and expressed his desire to meet her in person several times, something that, to date, is known to have not happened.
One of the victims also commented that he contacted Hanwha Life, Clid’s former organization, to report on the case and the mental damage caused by it, but the team did not respond. She also says she is taking other measures against the player.
Fans protested against Clid
In one of the last rounds of the LCK 2023 2º Splitfans rented trucks with messages critical of the league for not taking action regarding the case that had just exploded on social media.
The player is banned not only from the region’s LCK and Challenger League, but also from all competitive leagues around the world.
