Reaction on Twitter is mixed, ranging from wholehearted support, to disbelief, and even relief:
Huge thanks to the 433289484 douchers who made a video about Robert Bowling Resigning. I would have never have known if it wasn't for you.
Robert Bowling fucked COD up. His resignation may very well bring COD back from the dead.
