In a now-deleted TikTok by user @secsipa, the MPL star can be heard saying that “Wise and V33nus bl***j*b each other” as he refers to the V33Wise tandem from Blacklist International.


After boisterous laughter, he then proceeded to say goblok which is an Indonesian term for ‘stupid’.

The clip is believed to be taken from RRQ Hoshi’s Albert “Alberttt” Iskandar’s live stream.


In the same live stream, Kelra also stated sexist remarks against IDONOTSLEEP Esports’ Patchara “Ramella” Korpakdee.

MLBB and MPL fans were outraged and expressed their concerns about Kelra’s homophobia and sexism.

MPL personalities such as Caisam “Wolf” Nopueto and Theo “Uomi” Ignacio also gave out their thoughts on the issues.

MPL-PH has decided to issue a fourteen-day suspension for the Smart Omega pro, granted him and his team a serious warning, imposed a fine towards him, and required all MPL-PH franchise teams to attend a Gender Sensitivity and Sexual Harassment Awareness Training Seminar.

Meanwhile, Kelra has since issued a public apology to the V33Wise duo in his Facebook page.
