As you may have heard a while ago, brutal dictator and war criminal Manuel Noriega recently filed a lawsuit against Activison, the publisher of the Call of Duty series, for using his image in their latest game without his permission. While the whole mess is completely ridiculous, as Noriega is a convicted war criminal and murderer who’s reputation could not possibly be any worse, the people at Activision still have to defend themselves and thus have motioned for the lawsuit to be dismissed in a California court of law.
Defending the Call of Duty publisher is Rudy Giuliani, former Mayor of New York and current U.S. lawyer. “What’s astonishing is that Manuel Noriega, a notorious dictator who is in prison for the heinous crimes he committed, is upset about being portrayed as a criminal and enemy of the state in the game Call of Duty. Quite simply, it’s absurd”, said the former mayor. “I’m not interested in giving handouts to a convicted murderer and drug smuggler like Manuel Noriega who is demanding money from Activison and its popular Call of Duty franchise for simply exercising its right to free speech. Noriega’s attack on the rights of Call of Duty comes as no surprise considering he’s a lawless tyrant who trampled over the rights of his own people”.
What do you guys think? Is the former Mayor correct? Let us know on Twitter @APGNation or in the comments!
