Kyle Rittenhouse can't use his own name for online gaming because it may "harm others"
· Dec 12, 2021 ·

Kyle Rittenhouse has apparently been canceled for using his own name as his gaming account username.

Rittenhouse posted a screenshot of what appears to be an email from Electronic Arts (EA) informing him that his username "breaks [their] Positive Play Charter because [he] may have used words or phrases that harm others or negatively disrupt the game."

EA tagged the "Username- Kyle Rittenhouse" as an "Inappropriate Reference" to "Violence, Terror, and Tragic Events."

The man can't even use his own name on Steam! Smh.

Now, I don't know how many of you have been on Steam, Xbox Live, PSN, Epic Games, or whatever online gaming service you use... But let me tell you there are MUCH WORSE (and actual) inappropriate references in usernames than "Kyle Rittenhouse."

Check out some names that apparently ARE acceptable to EA:

Thank you for keeping all of us snowflakes safe, EA! 🤗
