Atlanta FaZe have released a statement apologising for a tweet that they posted that has been seen as misogynistic.
The tweet in question featured players from the Call of Duty League. The photo was edited using a filter so that it appeared that they were female.
FaZe posed a question in said tweet, asking how many “drinks” it would take to get with the female versions of the players on a night out.
You can see the original tweet here, via Reddit user u/BackupSickplay88.
FaZe’s apology said: “Our entire organisation wants to apologise for the misguided tweet posted recently. This is not okay.
“We understand there is no room for misogynistic or harassing behaviour and that women and the Call of Duty community deserve better.
FaZe “deeply apologise to those we have offended and know that we have fallen short of your expectations and ours.
“We have addressed the issue internally and vow to move forward in a positive manner for all.”

This is the latest in a run of scandals involving the FaZe branding. Earlier this week, Cented was removed from the organisation after a video surfaced of him using a racial slur.
At the start of Pride Month, FaZe VIRUS posted a tweet about he didn’t “support any kind of LGBTQ or anything similar”.
The organisation are used to battling away controversy and this latest example will be nothing but a pebble in the water for them.
FaZe will be back in Call of Duty League action this weekend. They have games against London Royal Ravens and Major 3 winners Seattle Surge to look forward to.
