The Dallas Fuel released support player Jonathan "HarryHook" Tejedor Rua for player misconduct after private messages surfaced online showing him making misogynistic comments.

Twitter user @icysorrows posted screenshots Wednesday of a Discord text conversation between HarryHook and her in which he used disparaging language against women. Following his release, HarryHook tweeted that he was "Not gonna make a big deal of it."

"I tried to help this person for some time, and all I was getting shit on, this person wants more than just being friends, I told her no, she wanted more attention, well... I can't give it, that's it, sorry for calling some girls whores," he continued.

HarryHook had played for the Dallas Fuel since the team's creation in Overwatch League Season 1. Prior to that, he played for the team's predecessor, the Team EnVyUs lineup that competed in South Korea's APEX OGN Overwatch tournament series.

The Fuel have made a string of personnel changes in recent months. The team released Jang "Decay" Gui-un on Monday after he allegedly refused to practice or work with Fuel staff. Head coach Aaron "Aero" Atkins and assistant coach Louis "Tikatee" Level-Wong left the team Monday. Former star DPS player Zachary "ZachaREEE" Lombardo retired from professional Overwatch in June before signing to FaZe Clan's Valorant team July 24.

The Fuel play the Washington Justice on Friday as part of the Countdown Cup tournament.
