TSM wasted no time releasing Cowboy after news surfaces of inappropriate contact with a minor.
Twitch streamer Faith shares a tweet from a fellow 16 year old female streamer. The origin of the tweet came from Fortnite TSM member Cowboy. It did not take long for the clip to start circulating social media while Team Solo Mid took immediate action releasing the player.
The streamer in the clip is Faith, 21, not the recipient of the tweet. She shows her viewers the messages that Cowboy sent the minor. The last message provides his discord contact.
According to Twitch streamer Faith, TSM pro Fortnite player Cowboy, whom is married, sent inappropriate messages to an underage female streamer. Speaking to the streamer, who wants to remain anonymous, she was made uncomfortable. Cowboy has since deleted his twitter and discord. pic.twitter.com/7PmRvfsl4U

This did not change any decisions as TSM made it official releasing the Fortnite Player. There is no confirmed sources if Faith provided any additional messages to TSM after news surfaced.
There is no confirmation if Cowboy was aware that he was contacting a minor.
TSM President Update
Leena Xu, Tsm president, provided an update on twitter on the actions they took after fining out about the events:
