CoD MW2 map removed to avoid offence to muslims

#1  Postby HomerJay » Oct 08, 2012 2:11 pm

A Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map has been taken offline after gamers found Islamic text around a painting frame. The text was found within a bathroom in one of the map’s many rooms, which is frowned upon among the religion.

Kotaku reports that the Favela map was removed over the weekend after gamers flagged the painting frame, seen above. The dispute stems from holy Islamic texts being forbidden in bathrooms.

Presumably they'll change it and put it back. It seems to be a bit like reshooting a film scene because of historical inaccuracies though.

I would put everything I have on that NOT being the motivation for this removal.

Are there groups of muslims whose sole enjoyment is pouring through every single piece of media created in the western world looking for something to piss and moan about? it's the only thing that makes sense!

It says somewhere they're focusing on the TU for MW3 then look at MW2.

It doesn't even rise to that level of competence.

Why can't Muslims simply accept that other people don't share their fantasies, and simply fucking live with it???

A fantasy within a fantasy.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

I dunno about that, but there surely are groups whose sole goal is to make money by any legal way possible. Weighting all pros and cons, it seems quite possible there is more to be gained than lost by directing one or more artists to put an innocent poster into a bathroom in a map of a popular game. Finally someone noticed, mission accomplished, job well done, my position is called Creative Marketing Leader, I do cool stuff for living, mostly fucking with people around.
