    About 19 mins ago Konami France posted this tweet below and now it was removed from the website, I can still see it but the image itself appears black and trying to open the tweet for responses says "post deleted" or something.

    Why may it be considered offensive comedy? Recently in France it was reported two people had their throats slit and Paris is in chaos too.

    Getting down to the French Konami tweet message it translates to:

    Yep.

    EDIT: Konami France replied on Twitter and they confirmed they deleted because some people found it offensive.

    The Tennesse thingy tweet is fake news, and no one had his throat slit. Nothing of this is happening... But yeah, it could remember jihadists exploding themselves or something.

    There was an failed attempt of attack in Orly last week, the terrorist was shot. That's it.

    But yeah. This kind of comedy is great for a card against humanity night but tends to offend people.

    Yeah, that's stupid. The guy in Orly wasn't even a real terrorist or something, just a mentally disturbed asshole who whent nuts during an ID check and decided to suicide himself.

    What about Micheal bay? :creep:

    Besides not being able to read french, and trying not to find interest in this period (Mostly cause konami) I still like bomberman and i did blow up a lot of stuff in it. Bomberman 2 on NDS which never was released in USA is godlike example of a good upgrade to a already basic fun game. Single player mode is fun and wish another was done. I wanna blow stuff up so much my roof is on fire like a nba jam basket ball! :D
