Recently Ninja had banned a pro from his esteemed tournament. TSM ZexRow had won the first week of the tournament which got him an official interview, that broadcasted on Mixer. This is where things went wrong. In that interview, the pro player from TSM had uttered the F-word a bit too many times and even went to such lengths as to tell other players to “suck my ****”. Of course, Ninja did not like his vulgar conduct and banned him from the tournament.

ZexRow was immediately ashamed of his actions and took to Twitter to apologize, saying that he had forgotten that even parents of the players watch these interviews. To which Ninja replied, “Congrats on your first and last Ninja battles placement!”.
Congrats on your first and last Ninja battles placement!

The heat rose high about this incident and it soon became a huge deal (for good reason). Even his team, TSM, fined him for his misconduct. However, Ninja posted a Tweet yesterday saying that he is willing to give ZexRow a second chance and unbanned him from Ninja Battles. Looks like ZexRow’s apology finally appealed to the Twitch celebrity’s better nature. What Ninja said entirely makes sense and truly everyone does deserve a second chance.
I am letting @TSM_ZexRow back in to #NinjaBattles this week, and for the remainder of the weeks. everybody deserves second chances, people make mistakes and I am excited to watch the tournament today! Good luck to everyone participating 😈
