EVO tournament director Joey Cuellar has notified the FBI and Twitch about a mass shooting threat made by a Twitch user.
After Street Fighter pro Chris Tatarian tweeted about the surprising lack of security at these fighting game tournaments, Twitter user Dankadillas replied with a screenshot of a Twitch user making the alleged threat.
Cuellar later tweeted that EVO organizers are taking the threat very seriously. “We are aware of the threat that was made against Evo 2018, and have contacted the FBI and Twitch regarding this matter,” Cuellar tweeted. “We take this very seriously, and they will be punished to the full extent of the law.”
