Overwatch League Suspends Boston Uprising Player Indefinitely over Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Overwatch League player DreamKazper has been suspended for misconduct allegations.

The Overwatch League has suspended Boston Uprising player "DreamKazper," aka Jonathan Sanchez, age 21, over allegations he engaged in inappropriate contact with an underage girl.

The conversation in question was screenshotted and posted on Twitter, and the 14-year-old fan also released a statement on the social media platform.

The Overwatch League, for its part, acted quickly, moving to suspend Sanchez and releasing a strongly worded statement on Twitter.

Earlier today the Overwatch League was made aware of the allegations against Jonathan "DreamKazper" Sanchez. He is suspended indefinitely while the league investigates this matter.

Boston Uprising likewise released a statement and suspended the player as well.

We take all allegations of this nature very seriously and as a result DreamKazper has been suspended from the Boston Uprising indefinitely. We will not be commenting any further while we investigate the matter.

This incident is the latest in a string of issues hitting The Overwatch League and eSports as a whole recently. Most recently, Dallas Fuel player Son “Oge” Minseok was suspended for account boosting in 2017.

Sanchez has not responded to a request for comment.
