Earlier today a fourteen-year-old Twitter user revealed that Boston Uprising DPS player, Jonathan “DreamKazper” Sanchez has been inappropriately involved with them. The first accusation came via a google doc. They interacted with DreamKazper through various platforms including Twitter messenger, Snapchat and facetime. Kazper allegedly bought them a PC copy of Overwatch in the very early stages of the relationship.

At the end of the document, the twitter user enclosed a large number of screenshots of FaceTime calls and inappropriate messages from Dreamkazper. They later took to Twitter to prove that the messages were not faked by scrolling through the direct messages.
The messages also check out in terms of schedule, as Reddit user u/Stealthy_Bird pointed out. Thanks to xQc leaking the fuel’s scrim schedule, we know Dreamkazper was scrimming with Dallas Fuel at the time he said he said he was in direct messages with the twitter user.
There has also been a screenshot provided by another Twitter user. The screenshot alleges that Dreamkazper knew that they were underage. He has allegedly refuted that via direct message with the Twitter user who he was alleged to be inappropriately involved with.
Boston Uprising have released a brief statement via twitter:
The suspension hurts Boston’s chances in the league as they do not have an ideal replacement for his hero pool.
FULL TRANSCRIPT OF DOCUMENT
“I want to address something that I’ve kept in the dark for too long. I am Lily, I am 14 years old and in 9th grade. I was taken advantage of by a 21-year-old player for the Overwatch League. He abused his power as a player to coerce me into sending him nude pictures and engaging in explicit facetime activities.
I have an account on Twitter with the purpose of posting Overwatch League content to support my favorite teams. One day out of the blue, I was followed by one of the players for Boston Uprising, DreamKazper. It caught me off guard but I was flattered, so I dmed him thanking him for the follow. He continued to strike up conversations, which made me feel special that an Overwatch League player actually wanted to talk to me.
During one of the first conversations, he offered to buy me a PC copy of Overwatch. I thought it was strange he was offering to spend money on me, but I was still in shock it was all happening. I accepted and we played together, sometimes with some teammates of his.
Early into the friendship, I had told Kaz I was only 14. I had figured it would have drove him away, but he continued to have interest in talking to me which I didn’t mind. Over the first few days we talked, he progressively got more and more flirty. Complimenting my appearance, and making sexual innuendos that I shrugged off at the time.
As time progressed, it became apparent that we were more than friends. Things started getting sexual very quickly. I had recently gotten out of a relationship and was incredibly vulnerable. The attention he was giving me had blinded me from seeing that what was happening was wrong.
He followed a few of my mutuals at the time and we have a group chat that we added him to. He brought the same sexual comments over into the group chat, knowing most of us were underage. He would continually joke about having my friends nudes, watching porn, and even told the story of him losing his virginity. The group chat has thousands of messages so I could not scroll back up enough to find his texts on it.
Very quickly things escalated between us and I was given his phone number and Snapchat. On Snapchat things disappear quickly, so we would engage in sexual conversations that lead to me sending him a total of two explicit images. He would send me shirtless pictures of him in his boxers on Snapchat, but on Facetime everything was exposed. I obviously cannot show that proof, but the things he has said in screenshots seems to backup my claim. I have proof that we facetimed, the screenshot has a few numbers unblurred to confirm his phone number is actually him.
At the time, it felt nice to have an Overwatch League player be so heavily interested in me. It brought me a lot of confidence, and at the time I was so wrapped up in it, I didn’t realize how wrong the situation was.
I developed feelings for Kaz, which I could tell were unhealthy by as intense as they were getting. He had called me his “dream girl” and really toyed with my feelings. I came to the realization that as a relationship we couldn’t work. Our ages were too far apart and it was starting to feel wrong. At this point I completely cut him out of my life. I later discovered he had been talking to other girls as well, not to mention having a girlfriend at the time.
After talking with close friends on the subject over the course of a month, I realized what a power dynamic it was. I’m stepping forward to hope this doesn’t happen to anyone in the future. DreamKazper should have known better to engage in explicit activity with someone seven years younger than him, especially when he represents a team. He used his social status to blind and take advantage of me.”
