Dallas Fuel releases support HarryHook for “player misconduct”

What was already a brutal week for Dallas Fuel fans became even worse yesterday as long-serving support player Jonathan ‘HarryHook’ Tejedor Rua was released from the Overwatch League team’s roster.

With Fuel already parting ways with DPS player Jang ‘Decay’ Gui-un for refusing to practice with the team and splitting with its head coach and assistant coach, it has now lost HarryHook from the roster too after the Spaniard was called out for being “misogynistic” when Discord messages were leaked on social media, according to Dot Esports. While a Fuel statement describes HarryHook’s infringement simply as “player misconduct,” it appears that these messages were definitely the reason for dropping him after the player apologised for “calling some girls whores.”

“Today, we informed Jonathan “HarryHook” Tejedor Rua of his release from the Dallas Fuel as a result of player misconduct,” the Dallas Fuel statement reads. “We thank him for his four years with the organisation and wish him the best in the future.”

The Discord messages in question show HarryHook using the slur, and then arguing with an Overwatch League fan who questioned his inappropriate language.

The 28-year-old has been with Dallas Fuel since the inception of the Overwatch League in 2017 and played for Fuel owners Team Envy prior to that too. He has also appeared for Team Spain at every Overwatch World Cup event.

Dallas Fuel’s wounded roster will take on Washington Justice in its next fixture this weekend in the knockout stage of the Countdown Cup.
