Infinity Ward Inc, developers of the Call of Duty videogame series and the current “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” has revealed to the public that it is banning thousands of racist player names every day (from the videogame).
Here is a message supporting the Black Lives Matters Movement from Infinity Ward which is displayed at the start of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare:
“Our community is hurting. The systemic inequalities our community experiences are once again center stage. Call of Duty and Infinity Ward stand for equality and inclusion. We stand against the racism and injustice our Black community endures. Until change happens and Black Lives Matter, we will never truly be the community we strive to be.”
“We’re issuing thousands of daily bans of racist and hate-oriented names. But we know we have to do more,” the company, which is owned by US videogame publisher Activision Blizzard, said in a statement on Wednesday.
