Streamer Thaqil, one Rainbow six sieges a player that publisher Ubisoft at some point considered important enough to commemorate with an in-game item, was rejected by the company after making a series of racist jokes on TikTok .

EQUAL NME reportIn a series of videos posted on the site—since deleted—Thaqil made some comments about Castle, a black character in the game:

In a video, Thaqil listed the Castle as a surround operator whose name starts with N. In a moment, the content creator says he’s going to “avoid” Castle in the game “Kiss, avoids” and declares, “I think that’s pretty obvious, that’s it. It’s because he’s black.”

Another video shows the streamer posing with a banana under Castle’s surround icon.

He also made a video about Castle and the N-word, which Thaqil explained was “a tiktok challenge where I had to name a moderator as quickly as possible based on a random letter that appeared on the screen. image. I E. L for Lion or Lesion etc. The letter N appeared on the screen and I said ‘Castle’”.

After his comment was picked up on social media Ubisoft was quick to act, stating that “Thaqil’s recent posts on social media violate the Ubisoft Code of Conduct” and that “As a result, Thaqil will no longer participate in the creator program. our content too and his appeal will be removed from Rainbow Six Siege.”

Thaqil responded to being fired by Post a message on Twitterin which he details each attempt at a “joke” before admitting:

Honestly, I know what I’m doing in the face of those challenges and know the joke I’m about to pull off.

Anyway my intention was never to be taken literally or promote racism but looking back now, that’s what I did so I apologize. My main goal was to be sharp and make people laugh but I now realize that my attempt at humor can be seen as insensitive and offensive, for which I am truly sorry.
