For those unaware of the controversy, NICKMERCS recently commented on Pride events in schools, stating, “They should leave little children alone. That’s the real issue,”. This was made in response to a video showing a clash between anti-LGBT protestors and pro-LGBT demonstrators outside a school board meeting.
As the CEO of Rumble, I firmly stand behind Nick and strongly against cancel culture. https://t.co/IOGn67d8Wo

Trainwreck criticized the “cancel culture” mentality and argued that the situation only fuels division and anger without promoting understanding. Chris Pavlovski, CEO of Rumble, also spoke out against “cancel culture” and expressed his firm support for NICKMERCS.
W. fuck cancel culture. if the part of the internet that’s going after mercs were the “good guys”, they’d teach & be patient even if their teachings are being questioned. the vocal minority who pretend that they are fighting for equality are just virtue signaling for clout, what…

“What they are doing here, with this situation, only sends people further down the rabbit hole and divides by putting people into an angry state, void of logic and understanding,” Trainwreck claimed. “Political leaders and viewers coming after him know this and use these movements for their own gain, power, and advertisement.”
The situation remains at a stalemate, with NICKMERCS standing by his remark and refusing to apologize. However, NICKMERCS issued an apology for potentially hurting people’s feelings, not for his original tweet. The controversy has sparked various opinions among streamers, with some supporting and others opposing NICKMERCS.
The Tweet gained significant attention, accumulating nearly 15 million views within four days. The fallout from NICKMERCS’ statement continues to unfold, leaving the future of his involvement with Call of Duty and his streaming career uncertain.
