Hearthstone pro suspended after Blizzard becomes aware of 2019 sexual assault conviction

No Comments

Following his suspension from competitive Hearthstone play, Jon “Orange” Westberg has issued an apology for a 2018 incident of sexual assault, saying that he is going to “step away from the scene for some time and evaluate things.”

Westberg first reported the suspension on May 17, saying that he was banned due to a “mistake” in his past. He said that he was unaware that a suspension was being considered prior to being notified of its imposition, and asked for time to address the situation. He did that today in a lengthy message on Twitlonger, in which he said that he is not looking for “forgiveness or sympathy,” but wants to provide an explanation to his fans.
