Hate Speech

Gamers or Haters

English

While playing “Call of Duty” on XBOX live, many verbal exchanges that gamers have with each other in the voice chat contain hate speech. The insults they throw at their peers, or sometimes even teammate, are often racist, homophobic or sexist. The vocabulary used in those conversations would shock most of the players’ parents. Some game makers were then forced to place countermeasures to eradicate the growing phenomenon.
