The “Grand Theft Auto V” boycott being called for by an animal rights org. is a molotov cocktail full of crap — according to sources directly connected to the game … who add the group is using GTA for shameless publicity.
Our GTA sources tell us game makers are calling BS on In Defense of Animals” attack on GTA — saying the game does NOT push “institutionalized” animal violence on kids … because it”s not made for kids.
One source points out the game has a mature audiences only label, and kids under 17 can”t buy it … so there”s no harm in showing adult situations to grown ups.
“It”s a fake world with exaggerated real world problems” the source adds. “People shoot animals in real life, why should that be hidden from an adult video game!”
GTA V hauled in a billion dollars in just 3 days — yes, a billion — so it might be a little late for a boycott to have any impact.
