Last week PC Gamer got a tip that RowdyRogan, I Paused My Game To Be Here Gamer Vintage T-Shirt an extremely young Call of Duty Warzone streamer, was banned from the game by Activision. Rogan is only 6 years old but has 95,000 followers on Twitch and 132,000 on Youtube.

In the clip, Rogan’s account appears to be banned while he is in the menu. He goes to see his father, seemingly crying, his father utters his shock and says they will get their account back, the boy leaves the I Paused My Game To Be Here Gamer Vintage T-Shirt room and the mother walks in saying “off flow”.
The I Paused My Game To Be Here Gamer Vintage T-Shirt clip has been given a number of red flags: It is taken from this archived stream, indicating that just before ‘ban’, the stream will pause before returning. The ban moment itself is accompanied by some quirky audio cutouts. Parents are not great actors. Suspecting the video was fake, we contacted Activision to determine the video’s legality, but received no immediate response.
At the time, a number of websites issued bans, ranging from e-sports site Dexerto to more mainstream stores such as Polygon (which was later updated), reporting the incident and helping to tag. Starting with # free Rogan becomes trending. This hashtag has been filled, somewhat predictable, with Call of Duty fans throwing at Activision for ruining a child’s dream, etc.The most popular speculation is the age-related ban of Rogan and the game’s terms of service.
