The official reading says:

“On 10/10/2021, the Season Officials identified an abusive behavior carried out by TSM members during the competition, causing damage to Riot facilities. After this happened, the athlete Pedro “Anak” Ribeiro, from the TSM team, had an offensive behavior during the celebration of the title on the competition stage, making insulting gestures to the camera, directly reaching the fair play. We expect team members to maintain a cordial and respectful behavior both in and out of the game, and we cannot tolerate abusive behavior and any kind of offensive language. Such conduct is considered serious and violates official Wild Tour regulations. This kind of attitude will always be seriously evaluated and punished accordingly.”

Riot Games have taken these actions on the basis of rule 16.11 Disruptive Behavior/Insults and rule 16.12 Abusive Behavior from their official rule book.

This clearly states that Anak was rude to his opponents and Riot Games will not entertain such actions to maintain competitive integrity and respect. As a result of this offence, the team was also suspended from official Wild Rift tournaments for two days.
