Epic_Gabriel has left several scathing comments on his opponent on Twitter or through after being defeated in online tournaments, causing members of the scene to call him out for being unsportsmanlike. One major incident happened after $2000 Legion Smash Ultimate Cup, where, after losing to Kiyarash, he told him that he will never be good, among other over-the-top angry comments.[4] When Kiyarash posted these comments on Twitter, Epic_Gabriel was met with significant backlash from the Smash community to the point where he disabled his Twitter account. He would later reactivate his account and post a TwitLonger apologizing to Kiyarash for his statements, saying that he would try harder to control his anger.[5]
