Petition calls for Ubisoft to change Far Cry 5 villains to Muslims instead of white people

The Pastor, who wants to reclaim God from the false prophets of the cult
An organization calling themselves "Gamers United" has posted a petition on, asking Ubisoft to heavily alter, or else cancel, Far Cry 5. The reason? They hate that the game makes a villain out of religious white people. "Far Cry 5 is an insult to your fanbase," the petition reads, "the Americans who make up the majority of your customers, and it’s time you woke up to that fact. Change this, or cancel it." The entire petition, which at this point boasts almost 500 signatures, seems almost too stereotypically "far-right conservative" to be real. We're thinking it may be a work of brilliant satire. 'Far Cry 5' releases on February 27th, 2018. [More]
