Since the incident was caught on Jubei’s livestream on Twitch, a Reddit thread soon emerged on the issue where the Dota 2 community condemned the undesirable behavior shown by Faker, stating that Valve should punish players like him since there is no space for racism in the community. 

 After this issue got a lot of attraction, Faker created a new Twitter account to apologize for the racist comments that he made against Jubei. While expressing his regret for his frustration that led to such behavior, he stated that he is working toward fixing it and asked the community to understand him.

His team, 0-900, also made a Facebook post where they shared their midlaner’s tweet, stating that they had a talk with Faker about his issue and had asked him to amend such toxic behavior. 


It is not clear whether 0-900 financially penalized Faker for his comments in the pub game.
