League of Legends player suspended for streaming ‘inappropriate behaviour’ with a stuffed bear

League of Legends pro player Lu ‘Leyan’ Jue has been suspended for two matches and fined $6000 for his on-stream behavior.

In a statement, League of Legends publisher Riot denounced his “remarks and morally controversial behavior” actions as “inappropriate”.

As spotted by Dexerto, a video posted to the Chinese social platform Bilibili shows the player seemingly humping a large stuffed bear during a stream.

“Recently, Leyan, a player of the League of Legends branch of the Invictus Gaming E-Sports Club, made inappropriate words and deeds many times during the live broadcast, which caused extensive discussions on the Internet and adverse effects,” Jue’s team Invictus Gaming said in a statement.
