​Houston Outlaws head coach, Tae-yeong "TaiRong" Kim, has been in hot water since he posted an inappropriate meme regarding the American bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 

So far the post has not had an official response from the Overwatch League, and criticism is quickly mounting that there is a double standard to the OWL's disciplinary actions. The post is being compared to Félix "xQc" Lengyel's inflammatory comments against another Overwatch League player.


The currently benched player caught wind of TaiRong's comments, and the lack of a response from the OWL, and, suffice to say, xQc is not happy.

XQc rage quit out of his stream after going on a rant about how unfair he thinks the situation is.

TaiRong has since apologized for the post in a ​Twitlonger stating, "I wish to make myself clear that I am not a person who has feelings of racism or xenophobia. Overwatch League is the the top league in the world harboring the best players from around the world who showcase the most amazing actions, and I am sincerely proud to be a part of it."


Along with the apology, TaiRong will donate $1000 to the NGO named Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation.
