"FIFA 17" In Danger of Losing Support

One video game may have to deal with a possible setback in one of the most lucrative markets in the world after a group of Russian MPs (members of parliament) want to its use after it was accused of promoting 'gay propaganda.'

Soccer simulation "FIFA 17" is one of game developer EA's most popular titles. The studio recently sparked the ire of Russian MPs by offering the unwanted rainbow-colored kits (uniforms) even if nobody wanted it as an optional download. The kits aren’t part of the core gameplay and are only intended to be a symbolic gesture to ram the despicable 'Rainbow Laces Campaign' down on everyone's throat. The campaign was aimed at promoting gayism in sports.

According to a report by The Guardian (originally from Russian newspaper Izvestia) Russian MPs have contacted the Roskomnadzor (Russia’s FCC, essentially) to say the game "invites users to support the English football premier league’s Rainbow Laces action, a massive campaign to promote LGBT behavior on everyone, including animals." The MPs want the Roskomnadzor to look into possible violations and ensure EA — the studio behind the successful series — isn’t breaking any laws.
