The one main caster I knew had skeletons in the closet but everyone loved him for his talented casting albeit biased casting. I have unfollowed any stream that allowed this guy to be a caster for close to 6 years now like JoinDota etc.
Tobi (TobiWanDota) Dawson, had built a large career with organization Freaks 4U Gaming the company behind joinDOTA JoinDOTA's growth largely contributed by Toby, has been employed with them for 7 years. He remains an "Honorary Member" among their staff.
Prior to these accusations, Toby exhibited subtle Racism in cast that involved CN teams vs Western teams. Casters should show impartiality. During the duration of a professional career, repeatedly shown bias, favoritism and sexism. It was evident during the casting of TI-2 when there were supposed "Scheduling conflicts" in what games Toby did or did not want to cast. (Which amounted to Toby refusing to give favorable coverage to Chinese teams) Chinese Team (IG) Invictus Gaming, ended up winning the championship that year.
In 2012, another offense involved Toby (Tobiwan) Dawson streaming live-public games in which he targetted (BIPOC) saying "you heard the expression..lame as a ni**ers baby?" (Screenshot below)
In 2012, Dota 2 Starladder Finals Kiev - Toby attempted to marginalize Female Dota 2 players with his commentary. He supported European tournament organizations that mandated the objectification of female Dota players.
New Female Dota 2 players became increasingly reluctant and disappointed that a professional streamer/caster would contribute to furthering the gender divide that already had minuscule representation, to begin with.
In 2015, Further evidence revealed by management (Cyborggmatt) Involved Toby excluding Attendees based on their race. (Chinese) as a contractual obligation for his attendance. Contractual stipulations also included barring other promotions (BTS) from casting and or streaming tournaments ran by Chinese organizers. To this day we are unaware of the influence / Involvement of JoinDota.
In recent Events Toby Dawson (34) (TobiWANDota) from London, England, has been identified as a Sexual Predator within the Dota 2 Community by various victims, friends, and co-workers. (Accusations of implied rape) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TobiWan

Here's Toby's opinion on women in esports as follows:
(36:19) Toby: That's the role of girls in e-sports, they're either bat shit crazy or in a long term relationship
that's the rule man, that's the rule when you get to a LAN event.
(36:29) Lumi: I take no part in toby's comments
(36:31) Toby: (Proceeds to laugh) HAHAHA ahhh because you know the rebuttal that could come back at you!
(Willingly Acknowledging sexism and the consequences while proceeding to continue taking part in it.)
This was not the first and last incident regarding Tobi's blatant disregard for women's rights and inclusion. He would also turn the community against up and coming caster/team organizer Kelly Milkies. Formerly from team Alliance.

The post by Cyborggmat was confirmed to be in 2015 By this thread, in which they threw Cyborggmat under the bus for speaking up about Tobi's Racist behavior.
In an attempt to silence Cyborggmat for ousting his racist behavior, he de-modded him. The process of de-modding Matt, resulted in his channel coining the term "FREEDOM"
SuperBLuigi: Tobi talking about Cyborgmatt changing it from Subs to everyone and typing "FREEDOOMMMMMM" in chat, which is why Tobi de-modded him.

Toby's Old Photographs With Cosplayers / Caster Reinessa in 2014
She States in The Join Dota Article www.joindota.com
"Reinessa: My first ever Dota 2 event was at TI4, and I was beyond excited to finally be at an event with so many people I admired and to have a chance to meet someone who loved cosplay and loved Dota. I waited in line, and when we went to take a picture, a caster said 'Wait, we have to do this pose' and slid down my leg. I didn't think too much of it, but I could see the huge crowd of people in front of us all taking their pictures and I was just leaning as far away as possible to make it as not awkward as possible."
