Well, that didn't take long after his name was trending on twitter for Microsoft's involvement with him.

For that, he's been banned from ever attending Eurogamer again. Microsoft then hired/invited him to their Launch Party for the Xbox One. He's a pretty big Fifa gamer I believe and does things to promote Fifa and EA Sports in general, but...yeah. As you can imagine, it created a big bit of controversy that he was hired/invited by MS.

Whilst he was on best behaviour during last night's event, KSI has a history of very public and overtly derogatory behaviour towards women. Nonetheless, he is a tremendously successful YouTube personality and a brand associate of companies as wide-ranging as BT, EA and IGN. Two years ago KSI published a video of himself harassing women at the Eurogamer Expo, which swiftly led to him being blanket banned from all of the company's events in perpetuity. He later apologised and withdrew the footage, but other videos he's posted have shown it to be far from an isolated incident.

What a dumb ass.

That was horrific and steps beyond awkward. Sexual harassment is more like it. What a douche.
