Activision has cut ties with voice actor Jeff Leach, who voiced the character Ghost in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone. Recently, sexist comments Leach made had surfaced. Shortly afterwards, Activision confirmed it would longer work with Leach.
“Sexism has no place in our industry, our games or in society,” a spokesperson for Activision told CharlieIntel. “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 also partnered with Facebook Gaming, but they have yet to make any statement. However, this news did break over the weekend.
If you want to hear some of Leach’s comments, there is a compilation video above. Be aware that it does contain strong language. Some of these comments date back to back to 2017.
Activision did not mention what will happen to the Ghost character in the Call of Duty games as a result of this.
