The American singer-songwriter silenced racist Call of Duty players in the best way possible.
Activision's fight against racism took a step in the right direction in previous weeks, as they looked to build upon their profanity filters in World of Warcraft. The developers took to blocking any censored messages from sending, rather than adding asterisks onto explicit words. Following their update, Activision has admitted that their next steps are to ramp up the security on voice communications, which will surely filter through to Call of Duty and Overwatch.
However, many racist players continue to "troll" their way through games in voice chat, making slurs that go unpunished.
Encountering some racist players in a Black Ops Cold War lobby, music sensation turned part-time streamer T-Pain took matters into his own hands, and fought back in the best way possible.
In the pre-game lobby, the rapper was confronted with taunts of "f**k Black Lives Matter," and a barrage of the worst racial slurs.
Without hesitation, T-Pain began to rain hell on his opponents in-game, chopped 'n screwed, and slayed his way through the game racking up many killstreaks. Bang Bang Pow Pow.
Chaining kills, the anger started to flow from the rapper, who shouted “I want every single f*****g one of them. I want it all. I want it all. I want every part of it. I want the whole thing.”
Allowing his skill to do the talking in-game, the post-game lobby had the racist players rendered speechless, with T-Pain brandishing them as "stupid idiots".
Despite the win in this instance, let's hope that Activision can ramp up their monitoring of voice chat to make sure these like-minded players are banished from the community.
