Yesterday we reported on Jerry Lawton’s terrible piece for The Daily Star, in which he claimed that a Grand Theft Auto: Rothbury was being made in ‘honour’ of Raoul Moat’s brutal slayings in the north east. Of course, it was complete nonsense, and had to be pulled by the Star after angered gamers quickly pounced on the article.
But the author of the story didn’t admit he had made a mistake and apologie, oh no. Instead he went on his Facebook page and scribbled this load of old tosh: ‘[Jerry Lawton] is baffled by the fury of adult gamers! These are grown (?!?) men who sit around all day playing computer games with one another who've today chosen to enter the real world just long enough to complain about my story slamming a Raoul Moat version of Grand Theft Auto!
‘You would think I'd denied the Holocaust!!! Think I'...ll challenge them to a virtual reality duel....stab....I win!!!’ Don’t wilfully miss the point, you should be made to explain and justify your shocking piece of journalism, and be held accountable for it. Not bitch about being caught out and wave wild insults at people who can’t stand your tabloid nonsense.
