CoD Modern Warfare 2: Streamers and players reported racism in the brand new title Call of Duty – According to research, by a non-profit mental health group, they say Call of Duty gamers are more racist and sexist and the reason is not the violent theme of the game but the instinctive natural behaviours of the gamers. Nevertheless, to say, CoD and Racism have a long history and issues regarding it over the internet. The same happened to some streamers who happened to face some derogatory remarks.
Yesterday, Popular streamers like Kai Cenat and YouRAGE were streaming the game together when they faced some disturbing remarks, which went, “Don’t buy the game Call of Duty if you don’t want to be called a ni**er. Don’t talk.” A couple of clips went viral showing the blatant use of slurs. Kai could not keep up with the nonsense and reacted, “Dude we don’t do that shi* bro. Chill out, man. Dude what the f*ck… that’s totally not cool bro what the f*ck!”

The matter did not end there rather insulting slurs extended to Black lives right. He commented on the controversial George Floyd murder. Later added that he deserved to die and justified himself by saying, “It’s not that I don’t like Black people, I don’t agree with that… George Floyd. He’s a f*cking bi*ch. George Floyd is a bi*ch… George Floyd deserved to die. George Floyd deserved to die.” This caused a lot of outrage in the community.
HasanAbi has called out CoD a “war crime simulator” and the reason behind it is the game relates to real violent incidents such as in-gameplay players are in total control of a missile which is used to track down a politician’s vehicle. The same opinion is shared by many other streamers and gamers. The CoD community has too many toxic issues.
The previous year, the authorities have been aware of such incidents and they took serious actions against such toxic behaviour, back in September. They banned over 500,000 verified accounts and further instructed 300,000 accounts to change their in-game names. At present, if any player is willing to enjoy Call of Duty, one must follow the new CoD’s Code of Conduct where one is obliged to sign in prior to their gameplay to behave respectfully.
Dr. Rachel Kowert, the head of the NGO, investigated the link connecting people playing video games and told Vice Media that people who claim themselves as “gamers”, engage more in extreme behaviours like racism and misogyny. “This can vary across communities depending on what kind of people that you are spending a lot of your time with,” Kowert stated. “I don’t think it’s necessarily about content but about the community in which you’re being immersed.” She further claimed, “I think that games are wonderful places that have more positive things to offer than negative things across the board.”
This is a very concerning issue for Activision. The organisation has admitted that there are such behaviours running behind the communities culture. The authorities are now determined to take serious actions to stifle bad conduct.
