Professional Overwatch player quits after racist rant


Matt "Dellor" Vaughn repeatedly used a racist slur for nearly 30 seconds after getting frustrated during an Overwatch match.
The footage was being live streamed and was later shared on YouTube.
The team he was representing, Toronto eSports, issued a statement saying he was being "released" because of a breach of contract.
Matt Vaughn has since apologised on Twitter and added that he is now retiring from professional gaming.
The incident happened during a ranked match at the weekend.
His character had just been killed in the game and opposition players, as well as his own team-mates, started criticising his performance.
In the video you can hear him getting angrier before screaming a racist insult over and over again.
Taking to Twitter, he said he deserved to be dropped from the team: "I won't try to argue or make an excuse, I don't have any.
"I just want people to know what happened. I was having a really bad day."
He goes on to to admit having anger management issues and said: "I just want to say that yes, I am done for life.
"I am quitting eSports with no intention of returning (not that I could after this).
