Shocking news today as Riot launched an investigation into Team Solomid owner Andy “Reginald” Dinh for bullying: something that he has done dozens of times on camera. Riot is investigating several allegations of abuse from team insiders, former players, and anyone who has watched publicly available TSM content that features Reginald.
“I don’t know where people are getting the idea I’m abusive,” said the abusive team owner. “When I yell at my players while being recorded for team media, I’m purely trying to motivate them in the way I would like to be motivated: with non-stop, personal criticism that I myself would not be able to emotionally handle. Is that so wrong? Is it wrong to call my employees dogs, scream at them, and then release footage of me screaming at them on Twitter? I think you just don’t know how this industry works.”
Reginald went on to further justify his position by invoking his authority as a successful team owner, a position he claims to have earned through “hard work,” “a sharp wit,” and “getting lucky as someone who founded one of the first teams.”
Nerfwire reached out to former TSM player Dyrus, but his response was at such a low tone that it was indistinguishable from the rumblings of a train that passed as we were interviewing him. We assume he said something negative about Reginald.
“Yeah, he’s a prick,” said TSM marketing manager Allie Hahe. “I figured that, at some point, he would tell us to stop posting that kind of thing, but I think he might be proud of it. Like, I think he might get off on it.”
At press time, former TSM player Doublelift was still partying and was unable to be reached for comment.
