Killzone Ads Pulled From Canadian Bus Stops

Over 300 Toronto bus stops have had their Killzone 2 ads pulled due to the violent imagery present.Teacher Davis Mirza emailed Sony Canada, which makes PlayStation games, after seeing an ad for Killzone 2 in the bus shelter near his Scarborough school. "My kids, who come from a lot of different countries, who have to experience violence, who bacally come here to seek shelter and safety, that's the stuff they don't need to see," said the Grade 4/5 teacher at Pauline Johnson Junior Public School, near Birchmount Rd. and Sheppard Ave. E.The central image in the ad is a "menacing head with glowing eyes," wearing a mask with a breathing tube, Mirza said.The secondary image shows what appears to be a war zone, "like Iraq," he said.

Honestly, the apocalypse is coming and I'd much rather have our children prepared than cowering in a corner somewhere
