Several women call out Smash pro Elegant for alleged drunken behavior at events
Super Smash Bros Ultimate Pro Matt “Elegant” Fitzpatrick is facing backlash on Twitter after multiple women spoke out about his alleged drunken behavior at esports fixtures throughout his career.
In a Twitlong posted on September 6, Shannon recounted a sexual encounter she had while drunk with Elegant. She explained that the encounter hurt her emotionally because she had no idea what was going on.
This “disgusted” her to the point that she wanted nothing more to do with Elegant because, as she explained, he is “not someone [she’s] interested in this kind of path.
She tried to smooth things over with Elegant, she said. She put on a brave face and tried to “pull herself together”, but she alleges Elegant became instantly touchy with her when they met at a bar. Because of this, Shannon became uncomfortable around him, especially when he was drunk.
Elegant responded with his own Twitlonger addressing the situation.
Elegant acknowledged everything Shannon said in her Sept. 6 statement. He added, however, that he would have liked her to communicate with him before publishing it because it could have been resolved in private.
This exchange prompted more women to come forward with their own statements, including SailorMagatron, who shared a Twitlonger on Sept. 6.
The first part of her message suggested that something had happened between her and Elegant that was “very very traumatic” for SailorMagatron, but she didn’t want to talk about it because she was “still mentally and emotionally recovering from it”.
Instead, she focused on Elegant’s toxic behavior when drinking alcohol.
According to SailorMagatron, Elegant became sensitive with her at Genesis 2022, which caused her to leave the room immediately. After that, they lodged together at Low Tide City 2022 — a choice SailorMagatron said she made because “the rooms weren’t cheap.” According to SailorMagatron, Elegant returned to their shared bedroom with an unknown woman and cuddled her. This made Magatron “uncomfortable” as she was still recovering from her “traumatic” experience with him.
She confronted Elegant on Sunday the same week and explained everything that happened and how it hurt her. At first, Elegant was upset but soon realized he was wrong for his behavior. They agreed to kiss and leave everything that happened in the past. But Elegant came home after losing in the pools and blamed her for the loss.
After that, she immediately stopped cohabiting with him and moved to another friend’s room.
She ended her September 6 post by calling Elegant’s alleged drinking problem “worrying” and said addressing it publicly was the only way to push him to change, as others had told her the same before. in private countless times.
The final statement regarding Elegant’s behavior was posted on Twitter late September 6 by KayJetshadow, who shared his own encounter with the smash pro.
KayJetshadow shared that she escorted Elegant when he competed in Texas, driving him to tournaments and sharing the same Airbnb for several nights — a room arrangement that meant nothing and led to nothing, he said. -she adds.
Several days after Elegant’s trip to Texas, Kay was contacted by one of her friends asking her to pick up Elegant because he was “too drunk to stay there”. The call came around midnight, which meant that Kay could only take her to her parents. According to Kay, she had to “drag her body across the couch” before going upstairs to sleep.
KayJetshadow then writes that between 3am and 4am, Elegant apparently snuck into her room without her noticing. She was reportedly awakened by Elegant’s penis touching her leg, aiming at her and urinating. Kay says she screamed, hit him – which he “didn’t feel” because he was dead drunk – ran out of bed and rocked herself in the corner of the room .
Her mother came to investigate soon after and offered to call 911 after seeing the situation with KayJetshadow and Elegant in the room.
Following this encounter, Kay showered elegantly and cleaned herself “until her skin bled”. While he was cleaning up, Elegant threw up in the shower.
As he drove Elegant to the airport, Kay says he started crying over the incident.
“Elegant is a good person when he thinks clearly. But he needs help with drinking. This incident is absolutely disgusting. My mom and I had to clean my room because it was literally all over the walls and floor too. Sorry to not saying something sooner,” Kay said. “Catch me swinging straight if another guy touches me again.
Elegant has yet to respond to either of the two new statements. In response to the original Twitlonger, he said: “I will say yes, I need to be held more accountable for my drinking behavior and honestly, I won’t be drinking at a smash event after this.
the smash pro has since disqualified himself from Riptide and will not compete.
Update from September 7 at 4 a.m.: Elegant’s ex-girlfriend Lauren posted a Longer talk about her and Elegant’s relationship. She said Elegant has always had anger management issues and their relationship has been toxic for the most part. She then recalled a series of situations where Elegant showed her less attractive side, ultimately ending the twitlonger with the same sentiment as previous women who spoke out.
