‘The Next Bud Light:’ Gamers Call for Boycott of ‘Call of Duty’ After Streamer Nickmercs Censored for Saying ‘Leave Children Alone’

Activision is facing backlash from gamers  over its decision to censor popular streamer Nickmercs from Call of Duty after he dared to suggest that LGBT content and Pride Month promotion be kept out of schools and away from children. After Nickmercs tweeted “They should leave little children alone. That’s the real issue,” developers promptly removed the “skin” that allows gamers to play a character that resembles the streamer. Gamers are fighting back, targeting Call of Duty as “the next Bud Light.”
