Animal Rights Group Demands Boycott of Grand Theft Auto V

by at . Comments

Killing hookers and blowing up policemen? No big deal.

But cutting off the heads of animals? Now we have a problem!

Stating that Grand Theft Auto V is pushing "institutionalized violence" by permitting users to engage in animal torture, Jack Carone from In Defense of Animals tells TMZ that the video game is a terrible influence on users and should be boycotted.

"The makers of this game have traded decency for money. Encouraging the darkest impulses of young people is not an admirable pursuit," Carone says, adding that "animals don't need any more targets painted on them in the name of fun."

The murder of animals is not a new Grand Theft Auto feature, but with the latest version clearing $1 billion in just three days on the market, perhaps this organization has finally taken notice.

So, you tell us: Should there be a boycott of Grand Theft Auto V?
