It might be unfair to note, but there’s no escaping that a large portion of video game players — especially the ones that like to publicly stream themselves playing on leftist platforms like Amazon’s Twitch — there’s an inordinate amount of “soy boys” and “simps” in that community. So, almost needless to say, there’s a fair amount of language not accepted because of the overly sensitive viewers and players engaging in live streaming.

It unfortunately comes as no surprise that the major video game series “Call of Duty” and their publisher Activision came down pretty harsh on a person Forbes called “high-profile streamer and Faze content creator Nickmercs” for tweeting a response to LGBT-related post.

“They should leave little children alone,” Nickmercs tweeted. “That’s the real issue.”

As you can see above, Nickmercs comment was in response to anti and pro-LGBTQ protesters clashing outside a schoolboard meeting in California.

In response to Nickmercs, the Call of Duty Twitter account announced the removal of Nickmercs-related content from their Modern Warfare II and Warzone games.

“We are focused on celebrating PRIDE with our employees and community,” Call of Duty tweeted.

So is Call of Duty intimating from their response to a perfectly reasonable tweet that the LGBT is exclusively connected to different forms of child abuse? It certainly seems so by their cancellation of Nickmercs content, which can in the form of a “Spartan-themed Operator skin” that can be used in the design of a player’s customizable character.
