Anthony “Okeanos” Nguyen joined the North American Valorant team to compete in upcoming tournaments. However, just three days into his new journey, the player was released from the squad after his past wrongdoing came into the limelight.
VIRTUOSO is an unsigned Valorant professional team competing in the North American circuit. Although not big by any means, VIRTUOSO is rising through the ranks with the hope of making it into Valorant’s major league in the future. The team was on the lookout for two new players to complete their Valorant roster, which culminated with the signing of Aiden “King” King and Okeanos. The team put out a tweet to welcome their new signings but immediately received flak from many, and users were quick to point out Okeanos’s immoral actions in the past.
Okeanos, who just turned 18, shared intimate pictures of her ex-girlfriend Rachel with some members of her Discord channel without her consent. Once Rachel found out about Okeanos’ action, she posted a TwitLonger explaining the entire situation. According to Rachel’s TwitLonger, she dated Okeanos for around one month but decided to call it quits once she realized that the pair were moving too fast. This didn’t go well with Okeanos, and after a few weeks of the breakup, the Valorant player decided to share intimate pictures of Rachel with her Discord server members.
The TwitLonger immediately grabbed a lot of attention, and Okeanos started to receive significant flak. He then released his own statement confirming the actions and how he is ashamed of them.
“I understand the severity of this situation, I’m sorry, I know some of you guys looked up to me, I’m a better human being than this, and the actions I committed should not be excusable. This is something extremely severe, and I will not make a mistake like this again. I am going to learn from all of this, and become better.” Okeanos said
Keep in mind all these events occurred in July of 2021. Once VIRTUOSO came across Okeanos’ action, they immediately cut him from the team and released their own statement.
