Over the past few months, there has been a Facebook account called DeadRC. This account has posted some rather derogitory memes, pictures, and comments. Some of these posts have been personal attacks directed at racers. On the morning of April 26, 2018, myself and one other fellow racer set out to try and find out who was behind DeadRC with the intent to get the page shut down. I won't go into details as to how we were able to track who the person was, but I will say that we were able to attain digital proof and IP addresses of at least one person running the DeadRC account. Much to our surprise and dismay, this person turned out to be one of our own employees. It is a major understatement to say that I was shocked, appauled, and extremely surprised at this unexpected discovery. Effective immediately, we have terminated this empoloyee. To anyone who was offended or affected by these posts, please accept our deepest and sincerest apology. The actions of this former empoloyee in no way reflect the morals or views of LiveRC or any of its current employees.
LiveRC will continue to operate and provide daily news and live race coverage. We still have an amazing staff, and will soon begin the search for our next team member.
Again, on behalf of myself and the entire LiveRC organization, we are extremely sorry for this situation and look forward to continually working to improve.
