McCree, with his rootin’ tootin’ personality and trusty six shooter, is one of Overwatch’s most recognizable heroes. That’s created an awkward conundrum due to the fact that McCree is named after a former Blizzard developer, Jesse McCree, who is linked to the now infamous “Cosby Suite” mentioned in the sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuit against Activision Blizzard. With many in the Overwatch community calling to change McCree’s name, some of the Overwatch League casters have found their own solution: refusing to use it entirely.

As Kotaku reported, fans noticed during a recent game that Overwatch League casters Brennon ‘Bren’ Hook and Josh ‘Sideshow’ Wilkinson were sidestepping saying “McCree” while commentating matches, instead referring to him as “the cowboy.” After fans began pointing it out, another Overwatch caster, Mitch ‘Uber’ Leslie, said he supported the idea.
