After specific death threats were made against T1’s experienced mid laner Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok on an internet forum, T1 is now cooperating with the authorities.
The illustrious Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok got confirmed death threats earlier this week.
Death threats were made against T1’s mid laner, and local police in Seoul reacted. Additionally, cars were seen outside the organization’s offices. According to a report, the Daejeon Metropolitan Police Agency is looking into a threat against Faker’s life.
Faker and his Death Threats
According to the translation provided by Reddit user u/HumbleTheorizer, a post with the subject “I will go to T1’s dormitory tomorrow to cut off Faker’s wrist” has appeared online.
On a Korean message board, a member made a death threat and described in great detail how he would kill mid laner Faker.
A commenter declared in the post that the subject would visit T1’s dorm and “cut off this fatherless bastard’s wrist and behead him with kitchen knife.” This occurs only a week after many stabbings in South Korea, one of which injured 14 people.
The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency reported the post, and it is currently collaborating with local authorities to try to identify the person who made the threats. In an effort to hunt down the subject and detain them, they are utilising IP tracking.
“The LCK appreciates everyone’s cooperation to provide a safe environment for fans and teams to enjoy the rest of the 2023 LCK Summer,”
The LCK ceased their statement as the probe gained momentum. The LCK intends to “strengthen LoL Park security” for the remaining Playoffs and Finals, according to the tweet.
The intensity before the LCK Playoffs has only increased as a result of this stunning threat. This season, Faker has struggled with a persistent wrist injury, but he has returned with renewed energy.
The author of the message has not yet been discovered, but the authorities are still looking and investigating into it.
