Admission of sexual misconduct[edit]

On June 30th, 2020, amidst a wave of victims of sexual assault in the Smash community coming forward, Xzax posted a tweet admitting to making uncomfortably sexual advances towards many women in the scene, as well as exchanging explicit text messages with a 16-year old.[5] Following this, the 2GGaming panel banned Xzax from all of their future events, alongside several others accused of sexual misconduct during this time.[6]
