Earlier this month streamer NitroLukeDX posted a series of clips to Twitter wherein Jeff Leach, the voice actor who performs the operator codenamed Ghost in Name of Obligation: Trendy Warfare and Warzone, makes use of gendered insults. The clips confirmed Leach insulting streamer ZombiUnicorn in 2017, saying they relied on their “horrendous cleavage”, for which he was banned from Twitch on the time, in addition to more moderen feedback Leach directed at a unique participant whereas streaming Warzone on FacebookGaming: “Suck my fats, girthy c***, you silly c***.”
ZombiUnicorn responded in a video calling for FacebookGaming and Activision to take accountability for partnering with Leach, saying, “It is not acceptable. These individuals like Jeff Leach will not change. They have not modified, and so they will not. There are individuals who fuck up and make errors, who take accountability and perceive that they have been incorrect. They do some reflecting and remedy and so they work on it and attempt to turn out to be higher individuals. That is not this example. That is an instance of somebody who has been documented for years doing the identical precise misogynistic, horrible, malicious behaviors.”
As CharlieIntel reported, Activision have now minimize ties with Leach. We reached out to Activision, and obtained the identical assertion: “Sexism has no place in our trade, our video games or in society. Activision is now not working with Jeff Leach. We strongly condemn these remarks. We’re dedicated to delivering a enjoyable and protected expertise for all gamers.”
Leach responded on Twitter, saying that the clips have been taken out of context and confirmed “me destroying a troll in chat” and have been chosen “to suit a personality defaming narrative”.
