Froskurinn Claims LEC Staff 'Refused To Work Until NEOM Deal Was Revoked'

Froskurinn Claims LEC Staff 'Refused To Work Until NEOM Deal Was Revoked'

There's more drama on the horizon for Riot Games, as the recent League of Legends European Championship debacle continues to reign supreme in League of Legends circles. While Riot is undoubtedly trying to put the sorry mess behind it, fresh reports claims LEC staff reused to work until the partnership with NEOM was axed.

For those who need any background information, LEC's announcement of NEOM as a main sponsor was supposed to be a huge piece of news. Given NEOM's ties to Saudi Arabia, and the country's stance on the LGBTQ+ community, it didn't go down as planned.

Happy holidays

A post shared by Indiana Black (@froskur1nn) on

Posting on Twitter, LEC caster Indiana "Froskurinn" Black decided to clear up what really went down. Froskurinn wrote, "I am deeply saddened by the latest Episode of Crackdown where my integrity and principal is called into question through speculation. So, let me clear it up: The on-air talent declined to appear on broadcast until the deal was revoked. I did put my f*****g job on the line". 

Froskurinn clapped back hard at Crackdown's IWillDominate (Christian Rivera) and Duncan "Thorin" Shield, who said she'd tweeted her disapproval of the NEOM partnership so that she “[does] not have to do anything". The LEC talent has kept a united front, with Froskurinn's words being echoed by Eefje "Sjokz" Depoortere, Christy "Ender" Frierson, Laure "Bulii" Valée, and Trevor "Quickshot" Henry.

 

Sjokz was one of the first to air her concerns, saying that those who worked within LEC were "blindsided" by the deal. She didn't mince her words as she branded NEOM an "awful sponsor". Now, Quickshot has waded in and backed Froskurinn by confirming all the talent was ready to not appear on the show.

Riot has a number of LGBTQ+ employees working for it, and Froskurinn herself identifies as a lesbian. Even though LEC has backed away from NEOM, there's no escaping the fact a dark cloud has fallen over proceedings. At least those within the ranks are flying their rainbow flag high in support of the LGBTQ+ community
