TSM has dropped Valorant pro Katherine ‘LunarKats’ So just days after signing her to their all-women team.
On March 17, LunarKats joined TSM’s all-women squad of five members, the team was competing in the VCT Game Changers tournament, and had qualified for next weekend’s major event.
However, on March 20, only three days after LunarKats was signed to the team, TSM announced on Twitter that they’ll be dropping her and are looking for a new member to join.
Today we've agreed to mutually part ways with LunarKats.— TSM (@TSM) March 21, 2021
We're currently looking for a sub to avoid having to pull out of the VCT Game Changers Series.
“Today we’ve agreed to mutually part ways with LunarKats. We’re currently looking for a sub to avoid having to pull out of the VCT Game Changers Series,” TSM said in a tweet.
When the announcement was made, LunarKats ended her broadcast after 40 minutes of going live.
“Guys, I have to go do something real quick. I will be back maybe later, but I have to cut my stream off short,” she said just 45 minutes into her March 20 stream.
TSM did not give a reason behind their decisions, but it’s allegedly been connected to harassment claims made against her back in August 2020.
Twitch streamer ‘Haleigh’ accused LunarKats of harassing her and lying about her. It was over accusations of view botting and “sucking d*ck” to join SoaR Gaming. She also posted screenshots of LunarKats harassing her in Twitch chat.
“Imagine how f**king jealous and nasty you have to be to go around telling people that I viewbot and ‘sucked d*ck’ to get into SoaR,” Haleigh said.
“I started streaming on Twitch as an outlet for what was going on in my personal life and my mental health. I never ever started just to make money or get a lot of viewers and ‘clout.’ I genuinely had pure intentions and still do and I always will.
“The fact that you try to credit my success to ‘viewbotting’ and ‘sucking d*ck’ just screams jealousy.”
Neither TSM nor LunarKats have given an official statement on the reason behind the departure.
