In a now-deleted tweet, Call of Duty esports player Kalei “FaZe Kalei” Renay accused Activision of blocking her captaincy for “over sexual tweets.” Renay applied for the captaincy of her team for an upcoming tournament, but then claimed that Activision blocked her application due to “over sexual tweets.”
“Wasn’t allowed to get a captain spot in our own FaZe tourney due to Activision literally not liking my **over sexual tweets,** – Yet … the same company has a PFP of a creators [sic] ass cheek as their avi on a company Twitter.”
Renay has not commented on this accusation since the tweet was sent out.
Activision holds the right to deny any Call of Duty esports team member captaincy at any time and for any reason. Ironically, Activision is also currently the defendant in lawsuits surrounding numerous allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct.
