Activision's Call of Duty Controversy: Nadia Amine Claims Tournament Ban Over Bikini Pictures, Sparks Gender Double Standards Debate

Nadia Amine recently took to social media to assert that Activision has barred her from participating in Call of Duty tournaments due to her sharing bikini pictures. The American entertainer raised concerns about what she perceives as double standards, alleging that the publisher treats men and women differently.

Beginning her Twitch journey in late 2021 with a focus on Call of Duty content, Nadia gained significant traction by the summer of 2022, amassing thousands of viewers. As of early 2024, she boasts around 1.2 million Twitch followers and is recognized as a rising star on the platform. Despite occasional controversies, Nadia has only faced one Twitch ban to date.

However, a recent setback has emerged as Nadia claims a comprehensive ban from participating in Call of Duty tournaments by Activision. In a tweet to her 235,000 followers on January 3, she attributed this ban to her posting bikini pictures online. Nadia suggested a gender-based double standard, pointing out that men seemingly face no consequences for sharing explicit content on social media, while bikini pictures have led to her exclusion.

While some of Nadia's followers supported her claims, others on Twitter expressed skepticism, suggesting the ban might be linked to past allegations of cheating at Call of Duty: Warzone events.

Activision has a history of blacklisting Call of Duty players for various reasons, primarily related to toxic behavior on social media. However, excluding someone from professional play over swimwear photos would be an unprecedented move for the company.

This isn't the first time Nadia has alleged being excluded from Call of Duty events due to bikini pictures. A similar claim was made in a September 3 tweet, expressing disappointment at not being invited to COD Next 2023. Although Nadia later deleted the tweet, Activision is unlikely to publicly address her recent claims or event roster decisions.
