Stephen Fry Backs EA in LGBT Row

Also available for :

Stephen Fry and Charlie Brooker have both used Twitter to come out in support of EA after the publisher was targeted by anti-gay protestors. <b><a target="_blank" href="https://twitter.com/#!/stephenfry" target="_blank">Speaking over Easter,</a></b> Fry said "If you do 0 else today, do join me and @Yoda to help game-maker @ea stand strong against anti gay hate & the dark side". <b><a target="_blank" href="https://twitter.com/#!/charltonbrooker" target="_blank">Brooker</a></b> was equally supportive, saying "Good for @EA for telling the homophobes to **** off."<br/><br/>"They should make *every* character in their games gay for a year just to wind up the bigots. Starting with the FIFA franchise," Brooker added. "In the next Modern Warfare, they should have a special 'gay' gun that's better than all the others, thus forcing online players to use it."<br/><br/> <br/><br/>EA has received <b><a target="_blank" href="http://uk.games.ign.com/articles/122/1222404p1.html">"several thousand"</a></b> letters objecting to the inclusion of same-sex relationships in recent games such as Star Wars: The Old Republic and Mass Effect 3. A <b><a target="_blank" href="http://www.allout.org/en/actions/theforce" target="_blank">counter-petition supporting EA </a></b> has since launched and has accumulated over 65,000 names over the past four days.<br/><br/><br><br/><br/>&#169;2012-04-10, IGN Entertainment, Inc.
