Initially, TimtheTatMan addressed the situation on his stream, stating he spoke to NICKMERCS and believed he had no intention to offend anyone. However, he has escalated his response by publicly requesting Activision on Twitter to also remove his bundle from Call of Duty.
TimtheTatMan’s request to remove his bundle is motivated by his desire to stand in solidarity with his friend, NICKMERCS, rather than being directly involved in the controversy himself.
“NICKMERCS has been my friend for years- we went in getting our CoD operators together. It feels wrong for me to have mine and him no longer have his. In support of my friend, please remove the timthetatman bundle,” TimtheTatMan wrote.
Support for both TimtheTatMan and NICKMERCS has been evident among their fans throughout the controversy. After TimtheTatMan’s tweet, it quickly went viral, garnering widespread attention and discussion.
As of now, Activision has yet to respond to TimtheTatMan’s request. The possibility of refunds for players who own either the TimTheTatMan or NICKMERCS skins remains uncertain. The NICKMERCS controversy continues to unfold, leaving the Call of Duty community in anticipation of further developments and the resolution of this divisive issue.
