The backlash of the BBC video focusing on gender inequality in esports continues. One of the pro players featured claims her words were twisted.

Some of the quotes from the video include Julia explaining that her team and scene aren’t taken seriously: “It’s always felt that female teams are not a real scene. Male players see us as a side game that doesn’t count.”
Juliano has been an influential part of the CSGO Female scene. She even managed to defeat the Worldś best AWPér KennyS in a 1v1 match-up.
