The blacklisted Warzone pro is urging Activision to let him compete again

A professional Warzone player who was reportedly blacklisted from tournaments after sexism allegations were leveled against him has appealed to Activision to let him compete again.

In September 2021, Chandler “ClutchBelk” Belk faced a litany of backlash after an interaction with New York Subliners Warzone star Swish, in which his mods and apparently even his mother used personal attacks on her.

Since then, Belk has not been invited to compete in Activision-sanctioned Warzone tournaments and has been rumored to have been completely blacklisted by the publisher.

Now he’s asking for a second chance and to be let back in to get his playing career back on track.

“I’d like to provide a timeline for when I’ll be eligible to participate in @Activision again,” he posted on April 12, asking the Call of Duty publisher directly. “2. Opportunities are a beautiful thing in life. I’ve improved and I want a chance to prove I can do better.”

While Activision itself obviously didn’t respond Belkone person replied and said he should apologize to Swish for what happened.

She responded, saying that Belk blocked her and that “I believe in second chances and that people can improve and grow from their past, but I’ve never received a real apology or direct message.”

Belk has competed in various Warzone tournaments since then, but he’s missed a number of major tournaments he might otherwise have played in.

Whether Belk’s removal of Warzone tournaments is a permanent thing, or whether Activision has a timeframe in mind remains to be seen. But he’s definitely keen to play again and earn his stripes. The blacklisted Warzone pro is urging Activision to let him compete again
