Activision will no longer work with a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare voice actor due to vile comments

Jeff Leach, the voice actor who played the Ghost character in Modern Warfare 2019 and also in Warzone has been dropped by Activision after videos surfaced of him being a terrible human being.

Clips show him being misogynistic, sexist, and frankly quite vile, using lines such as ““I love how it’s always like some dirty, dirty, gross f**king looking emo b**ch who looks like she f**king has no chance of getting a bit of d**k in her.”.

It goes without saying that the video embedded in the Tweet below is NSFW.

Activision released the following statement to Charlieintel.com.

Sexism has no place in our industry, our games or in society. Activision is no longer working with Jeff Leach. We strongly condemn these remarks. We are committed to delivering a fun and safe experience for all players.

Leach is an official streaming partner for Facebook Gaming but they have yet to comment on his behaviour.

While we know a new premium Call of Duty game will be released this year it seems that, like last year, the reveal of the new title will not occur until the latter half of the year. Until the release of Warzone Call of Duty titles were announced around May but Activision have rearranged their marketing strategy to allow Warzone more focus during the first half of the year before the new title gets all the headlines.

A leak on LinkedIn also suggests that Call of Duty Warzone is in production for iOS and Android. Call of Duty Mobile already exists and is incredibly popular but it does not include Warzone.

Activision Mobile has put up new roles! Teams are focused on Live Operations and content expansion across CoD Mobile and Warzone

Activision has previously out surveys asking if players would like to see Warzone on mobile devices and other jobs listings have mentioned “harvesting” the best features from the console version and porting them to mobile.

  1. Looking through some of the tweets and replies is pretty interesting. Not defending his various insults, but it’s clear some of them accusing him have used plenty of offensive language themselves. Twitter is absolute garbage and has overtaken YouTube comments for toxicity.

  2. Guy uses some offensive phrases on COD and gets cancelled. Watch out…. erm….. everyone who plays COD. I just mute everyone if I am not in a private party, the whole thing is just toxic, like everywhere else on the internet. How about we just stop letting these arseholes offend us and just ignore them? I don’t know who is more annoying, the person being a dick or the people bitching and moaning that someone hurt their feelings by using ‘word violence’.

    • Things can change, if the movie and TV industry can call out the sexist twats and progress then so can the video games industry.

      Things change in “real life” as well, it just takes a lot longer, but by correcting the behaviour of people in the public eye then, generally, society follows on. Very slowly, but it get’s the eventually.

      • This is part of the problem though, you’re calling them twats because you think it’s justified. Just as he thought his insults were justified. You can’t raise the level of conversation if you’re throwing offensive insults around too.

    • I agree with you about blocking these types of individuals and trying to move forward, however, sometimes it isn’t as simple as that. Some of these individuals have hoards of loyal fans who they set on people like wild dogs, specifically to cause hurt. Having tens, hundreds, or possibly even thousands of people coming at you all at once with negative comments can really affect a person’s self esteem, so why shouldn’t the negative attitudes be called out? People don’t have to be arseholes, they choose to be, and not everyone is built to be able to brush stuff like that off.

  3. When even Activision can see that you’re vile and unethical then it should be a real wake up call.

  4. This guy just talks garbage through and through. But it’s when he specifically once mentions ‘she’ that the world comes tumbling down on him…?
