bbPress shows Gravatars with all user profile links, and it doesn’t have option to do that from the plugin settings.

But, you can modify arguments for the function bbPress uses to display user profile links, and disable display of avatars. This is the custom code you need to add to theme functions.php file.

add_filter('bbp_before_get_topic_author_link_parse_args', 'bbhelp__disable_author_link_avatar');
public function bbhelp__disable_author_link_avatar($args) {
  $args['type'] = 'name';

  return $args;
