In the continuously unfolding saga surrounding the recent NICKMERCS controversy, well-known streamer TimtheTatMan has taken an unprecedented step. Following the removal of NICKMERCS’s Call of Duty Operator skin from sale after alleged anti-LGBTQ comments, Tim has requested Activision to also take down his Call of Duty bundle from the game.

Update (June 11th, 2023 at 1:35pm PT):

Activision has reportedly removed the bundle from the store and said, “At Tim’s request, we have removed the TimTheTatman operator bundle from the Modern Warfare II and the Warzone store.”

Original Article:

The controversy initially began when NICKMERCS was accused of making anti-LGBTQ comments, leading Activision to pull his operator skin from sale. This action has triggered a ripple effect, with other notable content creators expressing their views on the matter. Streamers like Dr. Disrespect and Cloakzy have openly criticized Activision’s decision, declaring their disapproval by removing Call of Duty from their desktops and vowing to cease playing.

TimtheTatMan had previously addressed the situation on stream, stating that he had spoken to him and assuring that the latter had no intention to offend anyone. However, escalating his response to the situation, Tim recently took to Twitter to ask Activision to remove his bundle from Call of Duty.

His tweet stated: “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.” As of now, it remains uncertain whether Activision will follow through on this request.

Meanwhile, NICKMERCS took to Twitter to reiterate his stance and gratitude for the support he received after the removal of his bundle: “Friends are created in good times, but families are built through adversity. Appreciate all of you that have my back, understand my position as a new father & recognize the love I have for all. Ain’t no hate in this heart. P&L.”

As the controversy continues, it seems less likely that Activision and Call of Duty will be engaging in many partnerships with streamers in the immediate future. Despite the present uncertainty, one thing is clear: this saga is far from over.
