MW2 map 'Favela' removed from rotation due to insensitivity toward Muslims

Apparently, a Muslim gamer has been offended by a picture frame hanging on the wall of a bathroom in one of the buildings included in the map “Favela.” Yes, you heard that correct. The picture frame in question has the Arabic term “Allah is beautiful and he loves beauty.” The “scandal” comes into effect when you look at the location of the picture frame: Above the toilet. This Islamic sin has apparently caused such uproar that the entire map has been removed from the play list rotation.

So fu*king stupid. fu*k that gamer and any other pus*y that gets so offended about anything so insignificant. That's whats wrong with the world today. Too many fu*king pussies getting offended over everything. You have people complaining about sh*t that will offend other people even if it will never affect anything in their lives. You would think the kid would not play the map or the game all together if it bothered him that much.

Muslims have really started to annoy me lately. I don't mean that to be a generalization, but it seems like no other culture or religion has a problem with anything other than muslims. Western civilization believes in free speech, so learn to fu*king deal with it already. If you don't like how you're being portrayed then make your own game or just don't fu*kin buy it.

This comment summed it up perfectly: "Islam: a religion that promotes r*pe, paedophilia, genocide and slavery, and this picture causes THEM offence."

imagine the sh*t storm IW would get if someone actually got k!lled or some sh*t over this.....so they had to be like fu*k it, take it down. Sad thing is it is a good map and I highly doubt IW was going go back and put money into fixing it. Especially after they released that embarrassment know as MW3. I have nothing against Muslims but I do think they get over sensitive fast as fu*k.

1 gamer notices this and EVERY MW2 gamer loses out

I, too, think this is insignificant, but Muslims are extremely into their religious views so I'm not exactly surprised by it.

IW has said they have removed the map from rotation for the time being until they can patch it to remove the picture frames. Whether or not they'll actually patch it and put it back in the game is anyone's guess, though.
