Activision has pulled the Favela map from Modern Warfare 2 after being accused of creating an affront to Islam. Johnny has details.
Wow, I'm sorry if this is insensitive, but, people need to harden the fuck up. It's some barley legible words in a fucking video game which involves shooting and killing people. I cant believe someone would get offended by such a minor thing
Mercilessly gun down innocents in an airport, just like a terrorist --- pushing the envelope!! Possibly offending Islam in the most inane way possible --- oh no!!! Hypocritical fools.
First and foremost, who the hell was staring at the picture frame in the restroom long enough to notice? I've played that map hundreds of times and didn't even realize there was a painting in there let alone a passage from the Koran.
So basically, when other religions, groups of people and what not get mocked and offended it's okay, but when it's Muslims OH NO WE MUST CENSOR IT! SOWWY WE HURT UR WITTLE FEEWINGS! Oh yeah, that makes sense.
You shouldn't have to censor something just because it offends a certain group of people. Why do Muslims get a special ticket and always get their way?
Censorship over the most trivial, nonsensical things. I love this world.
