Activision cuts ties with Call Of Duty voice actor after misogynistic comments

Popular video conferencing service Microsoft Teams appears to be down for users across the planet.

According to data from DownDetector, issues began at roughly 10 am ET/3pm BST, preventing users from logging in or joining calls. Microsoft Teams users in Europe, Asia, and therefore the US are all reporting problems instantly.

The Microsoft status portal is reporting no issues for Teams. Therefore the source of the issues remains unclear.

Global Teams outage

Microsoft is yet to discuss the outage, which might be the third issue to affect Teams in recent weeks.

Another clip within the video was taken far more recently from a live stream in December 2020, during which Leach made further sexist remarks. TheZombiUnicorn posted a video response to the montage video asking why Activision and Facebook still have partnerships with Leach, and Activision has since responded.

CharlieIntel, the website which first broke the story, has since received a comment from Activision, which confirms that it’s broken off all ties to the voice actor. Within the statement, Activision says that “Sexism has no place in our industry, our games, or in society. As a result, Activision is not any longer working with Jeff Leach. We strongly condemn these remarks. We are committed to delivering a fun and safe experience for all players.”

Jeff Leach voiced Ghost in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and reprised the role in Call of Duty Warzone. However, we don’t know if Activision is getting to make any changes to the character or plans for Ghost to point out again in future Call of Duty titles.
