Valorant streamer JasonR admits he avoids playing with women


Apparently, it was all for his wife (pic: JasonR)

After previously denying accusations of sexism, Twitch streamer JasonR has admitted to deliberately not playing Valorant with women.

Remember several years ago when Ninja said he didn’t stream with women because he didn’t want to spread gossip and cause problems for his wife? Well, another streamer has admitted to the exact same thing, although this situation was far more heated (and weird).

Jason ‘JasonR’ Ruchelski, who regularly streams Valorant, came under fire last month for allegedly going out of his way to not play the game with other women. Rather than be upfront like Ninja, however, he would do this by claiming his Internet had gone down or the game had crashed.

If he did get women on his team, he would mute them. Professional Valorant player Annie ‘Annie Dro’ Roberts claimed that over 50 women had experienced this and accused JasonR of gaslighting his audience.

At the time, he denied the allegations during a Twitch stream, albeit in a vitriolic manner that really didn’t help his case. ‘I can’t dodge anymore man. Lord knows there might be a girl on my team. Lord knows might be a f***ing b**** on my squad, might get hated for the rest of my life,’ he said.

Things only escalated more recently when, during another Valorant stream, he played a game with fellow streamer and friend Tarik ‘tarik’ Celik. The game was livestreamed and, during it, JasonR called Tarik an ‘L friend.’

Afterwards, Tarik asked JasonR to clarify what he meant, leading to JasonR demanding to know why Tarik hadn’t defended him from the sexism allegations.

‘You are in a position to tell people that JasonR is not the person that these people are trying to label me as,’ he said. ‘You are in that position, and you chose to be quiet.’

Tarik told JasonR that he believes the allegations and has seen enough evidence to support it. While he elected not to call him out or publicly badmouth JasonR, Tarik didn’t want to be seen as endorsing JasonR’s behaviour.

‘There is undeniable, indisputable evidence that you clearly dodge queue vs. girls. If I play with you, it makes it seem like I support that behaviour, and I don’t know why you do it – it’s your personal reason, your private matter but I don’t agree with it and I think it is weird,’ he explained.

The argument lasted for nearly an hour and unsurprisingly blew up online, making even more people aware of the controversy. Judging by the responses on a YouTube upload, not many were rushing to defend JasonR after his outburst.

In the end, JasonR did admit to his actions, saying on Twitch he did it for the sake of his wife. The Twitch upload has since been deleted but, obviously, someone saved it and shared it on Reddit. What hasn’t been deleted is JasonR’s Twitlonger post that says more or less the exact same thing.

‘I was avoiding certain online situations out of respect to my wife, Stephanie. When I was younger I was not a good person to her – and I take accountability for my actions that lead us to this place. I was trying to avoid potentially toxic situations not wanting her to be put through drama,’ he wrote.

He adds that he will no longer go out of his way to avoid interacting with women and apologises that his intentions were misconstrued. ‘There are so many lies about me out there, lies about Steph, who doesn’t deserve this. There are people making false allegations off of out of context information. I wish nothing but peace and love for people and ask for a touch of understanding.’
