Target Follows Through on Petition to Remove GTA:5 From Their Shelves


Well surprisingly against some wishes of the community, and despite many people opposing the supposed wrongful petition, Target actually followed through with the petition against GTA V being on Target’s shelves, and they were not the only store to follow suit as Kmart did the same. Yesterday I posted an article about 3 women starting a petition to do as I stated, get the Australian Target store chain to remove this game from their store shelves, and they actually did. But why? Many people  opposed this and even one person started another petition in order to get Target to re-add the game back to their shelves. The reason he states is {Quote}   ” The petition that started this was initiated by very misinformed people. They claim the game ‘encourages’ you to commit sexually violent or generally violent acts against women. As someone who has played the game in question extensively (Almost 200 hours), I can confirm that this is a false claim. The game NEVER encourages this. They also completely ignore the fact that there’s much more violence against men than women, but it’s definitely not on a level that should have the video game removed from stores. Plus the game has an R18+ rating for a reason.” {End Quote}


And this is true. A game that is Rated 18+ is rated so due to either violence and gore, Language, or Nudity, and this one has all three. And I have also played this game, completed the campaign, and even had at least 300+ hours of online gameplay, and not once was I prompted or forced to do anything sexual to anybody, male or female. But this is a Petition that is going on now to have Target Negate the previous petition and re-add the game back on to store shelves. You can check out the Petition and sign it here –>  and also check out my previous article Involving the petition to remove the game from store shelves here –> And comment on your thoughts, were these women actually misinformed, or are they correct in saying GTA V is all about sexual assault?
