Activision Blizzard terminates Momo’s contract. Activision Blizzard has terminated its contract with Call of Duty League caster Philip “Momo” Whitfield. This comes following an internal investigation of messages he’d sent to women in the gaming community, he announced Saturday.
The content of the messages was not publicly disclosed, but Momo’s argument that the “generic meaning of the grievances is that my messages made the recipients feel uncomfortable” was questioned by many people, and that Momo ‘s acts and words were far more explicit.
“The person I was back then is not the person I am now,” Momo said in a statement. “I’m sorry for my immaturity, I’m sorry for any explicit content or graphic language I used, I’m sorry for any tasteless humour, and I’m sorry to anybody who I’ve caused offense to or who has suffered in any way as a result of my actions.”
Emily-Rose “Emilia” Worrall, a former Call of Duty player came forward with her story about Momo. “I decided to go forward with the other group of gals in order to help them support their case,” she said on Twitter. “Momo basically said that [he] wanted to sleep with me when I was underage at the event we met at. …
“I’m sure the girls who have had MUCH MUCH worse happen to them will speak with proof very shortly. But F— letting another abuser to try to downplay what they did to OVER TEN GIRLS in this community.”
Multiple other women criticized Momo ‘s alleged downplay of the misconduct which led to his Call of Duty League firing.
