Dozens of gay men have been murdered in cold blood by Islamic extremists. How do you respond? Because some, apparently, think it would make a good video game.
In the game Milo Tosser, it allows you to control three Isis members as they throw a gay man from a rooftop to hit certain targets on the ground. You can hit explosives to get more points. And, also, once the body has fallen to the ground, other extremists gather to stone it to death.
Players get five ‘tosses’ per game, with three unique levels.
The ‘Milo’ of the title is journalist Milo Yiannopoulos, who has attacked political correctness, defended right-wing ideology, and in October said he would choose to ‘cure’ his homosexuality if he could.
‘He’s well known for his stances against feminism, PC culture and Social Justice Warriors,’ Micharl Garber, the creator of Milo Tosser, writes. ‘He has voiced concern about the treatment of homosexuals in Muslim-dominated countries and considers Islam extremists to be a big problem in today’s world.
‘As a gay man who is a staunch advocate for free speech he was a perfect candidate as the “tossed”.’
‘I wanted to make a game highlighting a serious issue we face in today’s world. That issue is fundamental Islam and how it teaches intolerance towards not only homosexuals and women, but also non-Muslims in general,’ Garber added.
The choice to use Yiannopoulos was the ‘easiest decision ever’. The creator added: ‘Milo’s charm and humor helps to soften the blow of the shocking nature of the game’s message.’
