"... just as we don’t condone a pirate lifestyle"

... one of the new aspects of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is hunting whales. That led animal-rights group PETA to call the game “disgraceful” in a statement.

GamesBeat contacted Ubisoft about PETA’s stance, and the publisher provided the following response:

"History is our playground in Assassin’s Creed. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is a work of fiction that depicts the real events during the Golden Era of Pirates. We do not condone illegal whaling, just as we don’t condone a pirate lifestyle of poor hygiene, plundering, hijacking ships, and over-the-legal-limit drunken debauchery."

What greater weapon is there than to turn an enemy to your cause? To use their own knowledge against them?

Why does PETA give AC free press but not Dishonored? Other games murder whales too!

We have reached such a pathetic point in society where people need to defend their actions for doing something in a work of fiction, and also for representing things that were relevant for their time. Not only is an apology unneeded, so is feeling the need to explain yourself.

Haha nice. I guess PETA has no problems with a pirate lifestyle, since they didn't complain about that.

I don't think they're taking peta seriously at all. The response stinks of smartassness.

They've shown again and again they don't care about people, just animals.
