G2 Esports CEO stepped down following the Andrew Tate controversy- Since G2 Esports’ inception, while it was still known as Gamers2, Carlos has always been a part of the team. G2 has grown to become one of the biggest esports organisations while he has been its CEO. Initial punishment for Carlos following his contentious encounter with Andrew Tate was an eight-week unpaid absence.
Carlos was suspended from G2 and has since left the company as a consequence of backlash from the organization’s supporters, esports stars, and even G2 employees for his affiliation with Tate.

“This is a very hard ending to what has been otherwise been a very meaningful, joyful experience.” He further continued that by stating that he was taking “full responsibility over everything that went on in the last few days.”
