After controversy caused by G2 Esports CEO Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Santiago being spotted with Andrew Tate, Carlos has announced that he’s officially leaving G2.

Ocelote has been with G2 Esports from the beginning, from when G2 was still Gamers2. During his time as CEO, G2 has turned into one of the largest organizations in esports.

After his controversial appearance with Andrew Tate, Carlos was initially hit with eight weeks of unpaid leave.

Carlos’ association with Tate led to outcry from fans of the organization, esports personalities, and even members of G2 resulted in Carlos’ suspension and, now, subsequent departure from the company.

Carlos has revealed that he’ll be leaving G2, the organization he founded, in a video posted to his personal twitter account.

Carlos reflected on his time with G2 Esports over the years, “This is a very hard ending to what has been otherwise been a very meaningful, joyful experience.” followed by taking “full responsibility over everything that went on in the last few days.”

G2 Esports have issued a statement of their own as well.

In the statement, G2 clarified that they “do not support any form of misogyny” and that they are “fully committed to continue the legacy of G2.”

Carlos’ departure from the organization comes just days after he said, “I will do anything to protect this company and my colleagues”, in a tweet made in response to the eight weeks of unpaid leave.

This news comes after G2 was reportedly denied a Valorant franchising spot as a result of their CEO’s appearance with Tate.
