Robson “robinho” Oliveira, professional player of Street Fighter V, did a broadcast on Twitch in which he confessed to abusing a girl. It was news that went around the world and reached the ears of Capcom, a company that decided to ban the player for life from all competitions in their games.
In a recent live stream, Robinho was playing Street Fighter V as he usually does. While interacting with the audience, he decided to tell an anecdote in which he confessed to having sexually abused a woman who was intoxicated. According to his statements, it was a premeditated act done as revenge for an alleged infidelity.
Later, Robinho pointed out that his statements were in joke and that he made everything up. That said, it is believed that it was a way to cover his back after members of his chat told him that what he was telling was a crime.
