Player 065 from Netflix's Squid Game: The Challenge has broken his silence.

The player was labelled the 'real villain' of the reality show, but he's had a lot to say about the accusations since its release.

Recently, members of the public from across the globe took part in the real-life version of the hit Netflix show.

Dylan, AKA Player 065, came under fire for his actions in the reality show's sixth episode.

It was during the infamous marbles round that he lost his cool.

In the round, players were paired up and had to play a game of marbles.

The winner of each pair would go through to the next round, while the loser was eliminated.

However, any pair who didn't choose a winner would both be eliminated.

Dylan was paired with another player named Aurora, accusing her of 'raising her voice' when she was speaking calmly, before refusing to let her have the win, meaning both players were eliminated.

The backlash on X was swift, with one user writing: "I didn’t like the comment he made about her raising her voice when she seemed to be speaking in a level, normal tone.

"It felt like a micro aggression."

Another agreed, adding: "Personally player 065 DESERVED to go home.

"He was literally trying to mind f*ck 399.

"And once my girl gave in he STILL proceeded to act like a sore loser.

"When she’s the one who got the first shot in.

"He’s just mad cause he’s a man, and didn’t wanna lose to a girl.”

However, Dylan has since taken to Instagram to address the backlash, writing: “It’s important to note, what you see is only the edited version of what really happened.

“Per productions request every marbles game had to have the rules and how to win established BEFORE playing the game, nothing could be changed once the game had started.

“You couldn’t determine the winner at the end of match because that breaks the agreed upon rules stated earlier, which is what we see at the end of the game.

"Me following instructions, isn’t a judgment of my character or who I am as a person.

"More to come but I’m not a manipulator & I’m not a bully – I won’t be made out to be that way, I was just adhering to the rules of the game.”
