Star Craft HotS gameplay 1

A mid-game tweet sent out by Mihaylo 'Kas' Hayda has seen him ousted from the tournament.

Professional StarCraft 2 player Mihaylo 'Kas' Hayda has been disqualified from the Fragbite Masters Season 3 tournament after he posted a tweet saying he was going to 'rape' his female opponent.

Here's the tweet below, via @FeedMeSC2:

Hayda's female opponent Madeleine 'Maddelisk ' Leander wrote on eSport about the incident, saying:

"I was invited to play in the tournament Fragbite Masters. My first reaction was ”but I’m not good enough”. It was however not the first time an underdog was invited to a tournament. It would be stupid to say no, I thought. I saw it as chance and said yes. A few minutes into the first map the game was paused. I had no idea why but it was because of the tweet. The game went on and I lost 0-2. When the match was over I saw this. A tweet with the text ”Going to rape some girl soon #fragbitemasters” written by my opponent.

I don’t even know what to say. I was very surprised to say the least. This coming from a pro player is scary. The organizers did what they could. They asked Kas to apologize and talked about it after."

Hayda apologised publicly via Twitter, saying "Sorry to everyone, sometime i really doing stupid tweets, hate myself for that :( sorry"

Thanks, Deadspin.
