PETA dislikes the way Far Cry 6 makes you treat your cock

Did you know the Cuban men like to play with their cocks a lot? If you didn’t, you know now. It’s actually a sport over there. You know… cockfighting. Since Far Cry 6 is loosely based on Cuba (keep denying that, Ubisoft), the beastly blood sport is integrated into the game in mini-game form. Guess who’s not a big fan of that. Exactly, PETA Latino isn’t.

According to the animal rights organization, glorifying cockfighting is so not cool. Given that cockfighting is the purest form of animal abuse, Ubisoft should have steered clear from it in the first place. That’s why PETA urges Ubisoft to rights its wrong by removing it from Far Cry 6 entirely.

“Turning a horrific blood sport like cockfighting into a Mortal Kombat–style video game match is a far cry from real innovation, as today’s society is strongly opposed to forcing animals to fight to the death. Roosters used in cockfights are fitted with sharp spurs that tear through flesh and bone, causing agonizing and fatal injuries. PETA Latino urges Ubisoft to replace this reprehensible minigame with one that doesn’t glorify cruelty.”

To be clear, Ubisoft isn’t exactly portraying cockfighting in a bloody way. In fact, they’re making light of it by presenting it in a blood-free, Mortal Kombat-ish manner. There are even Scorpion- and Sub-Zero-themed roosters in the roster. Then again, this might even make things worse, since it underplays the severity of actual cockfighting.

It’s now up to Ubisoft to determine what it’s going to do about it. Since cockfighting is legal in Cuba and a vital part of its culture, it’s understandable why Ubi went for it. And to be honest, you’re not going to tell me that Ubisoft didn’t see this coming from a mile away.
