Maybe has issued an apology for the statement :
Dear DOTA2 fans, this is Maybe.
Earlier today I was involved in a quarrel with a follower on Weibo. My emotion then got the best of me and I wrote something extremely inappropriate for a public figure and a professional athlete. My behavior has caused severe negative impact, and I would like to sincerely apologize for what I have said: I am sorry.
Moving forward, I will exercise better judgement for my words and my behavior. I will focus on my training and practice. Hopefully this can help me earn your forgiveness.
I will respect and accept any punishment my clubhouse will later decide. Again I would like to extend my sincerest apology to the entire DOTA2 community and fans everywhere. I am sorry.
