This is, by far, my favorite story of the week.
I think it’s real, but who the hell knows. Maybe it’s just a publicity stunt. Either way, I’m in.
Apparently this guy “FaZe Censor,” real name Doug Martin, is a professional Call of Duty player, but he’s been having a rough go of it recently, kind of like Danica Patrick’s entire NASCAR career. So he did what any sensible and committed pro would do – he broke up with his meteorologist girlfriend Yanet Garcia to focus on his craft.
From the New York Post:
Announcing the decision on YouTube, the 23-year-old revealed that he and Garcia, 26, had split up, saying, “I don’t have time for a girlfriend.”
He went on to say that he needed to focus on playing “Call of Duty,” and would be playing the next iteration in the franchise, “Black Ops IV,” full-time while she was “doing that job over there.”
Garcia — known as “the world’s sexiest weathergirl” — grew her global legion of fans during the World Cup as she supported her native Mexico.
Martin has struggled this year, missing out on the first stage of the “Call of Duty World League” before signing up with a different team that had secured a place in Stage 2 to ensure he got there.
Listen, we’ve all been there before. I think we can all relate. Sometimes you just don’t have enough time for your stunningly hot girlfriend, so you have to call it quits and turn attention to your career instead.
