Activision temporarily pulls Favela multiplayer map from Modern Warfare 2 after users find holy writings in map's bathroom.
YouTube user KhaleDQ84EveR points out in a video that two paintings are hung in the map's bathroom that feature a quote from the Muslim prophet Muhammad, which reads "Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty." He explains that it is forbidden for Islamic holy teachings to be featured in bathrooms and sought an apology from Infinity Ward, as well as the removal of the content.
That's exactly what has happened, as Infinity Ward parent company Activision issued a statement to Kotaku apologizing for the issue and noting that the map has been removed from rotation. It will return once it is edited. Additionally, the same texture will be removed from Modern Warfare 3.
"We apologize to anyone who found this image offensive," reads a line from the statement. "Please be assured we were unaware of this issue and that there was no intent to offend. We are working as quickly as possible to remove this image and any other similar ones we may find from our various game libraries."
"Activision and our development studios are respectful of diverse cultures and religious beliefs, and sensitive to concerns raised by its loyal game players," the statement continues. "We thank our fans for bringing this to our attention."
the maps back up now.. the pic is gone but theres a quran in the bog, muahahaha evil activision how dare you :p
LoL It's only taken 1 Muslim 3 years to find this offensive painting, am sure because of this brilliant piece of detective work all the brotherhood will now be up in arms and I guess a few flags will be burnt in protest. LoL (1 Muslim at should get a life)

Are you still adding to the comments? It's not like you added anything intelligent to the fray of words here.
@sammoth ah? i thought yours none of em is any intelligent? how can u evaluate others if u forgot to evaluate yourself?
So then don't respond. You made your point. I disagree with you and leave it at that.
@sammoth i am calling u out just to tell u that it will be endless continuing like this.
Really ? So point out what you have added besides trolling off the spot. Then having the nerve to come back here and call me out ?
Why is it that no matter what good christians do , it's always MUSLIMS who get offended and want to kill US.
Can we have all the military references removed while we are at it? We can just rename the series: Hello Kitty Island Adventure.
