Call of Duty cancels influencer after he speaks against LGBTQ indoctrination of children
June 14, 2023
On Thursday, a prominent online video game streamer was punished by Call of Duty over comments he made in response to a video about Pride. Nicholas Kolcheff, better know by his YouTube name Nickmercs, had his bundle removed from two of the game’s most popular versions, Warzone and Modern Warfare II, after suggesting people should “leave little children alone.”
Kolcheff refused to back down, and soon released a video responding to the controversy in which he stood by his statement and explained that it did not come from a place of hate.
They should leave little children alone. That’s the real issue.

The comment that ignited the controversy was posted on Wednesday morning in response to a video showing the violent clash between parents and leftists outside a school board meeting in Glendale, California over LGBTQ-related issues.
“They should leave little children alone,” Kolcheff responded. “That’s the real issue.”
The tweet quickly gained traction, and has been seen over 11 million times. On Thursday, it caught the attention of Call of Duty, who announced that they had taken action against Kolcheff.
