League of Legends esports players Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok and T1 are taking the battle against toxicity to the next level, as they have launched a lawsuit against toxic fans in an attempt to “create a healthy esports culture”.
The lawsuit was initially filed by their respective attorneys back on July 19th in South Korea.
“We at T1 are determined to protect everyone of our affiliated members from unjustified attacks” an official statement said, according to Dexerto. “Freedom of expression should never defame nor violate others’ rights. T1 will continue to do our best to protect our players and create a healthy esports culture,” they added.
