Josh “EQO” Corona has been fined by both the Philadelphia Fusion and the Overwatch League and will serve a suspension due to racially offensive gestures during a stream last week.
EQO will not play for the next three games and is banned from streaming until June 17.
The Overwatch League fined EQO $1,000 and the Fusion issued a separate fine of $2,000. On top of this, Fusion said in the announcement, EQO is donating an additional $3,000 to the No Place for Hate Campaign. Fusion will be both donating the $2,000 fine and adding $5,000 of their own to make a $10,000 join donation.

EQO also released his own statement on Twitter, apologizing for the misconduct.
“I know that I can’t change what has already happened,” EQO wrote in the statement. “I’d like to channel my disappointment into energy to become a better teammate and have a positive impact on my organization and the Overwatch community.”
