Big restaurant chain takes flack over alleged porn in games for kids

One of the country's biggest restaurant chains found themselves in hot water recently over pornographic content found in an arcade game at one of their restaurants in Alberton recently.

ONE of the country’s biggest restaurant chains found themselves in hot water recently, due to pornographic content found in an arcade game at one of their restaurants in Alberton. According to sources, children playing a certain arcade game in the restaurant made their parents aware of some images of female nudity on the screen.

A spokesperson for the chain had the following to say: “We were horrified to discover that one of our restaurants in Alberton had a pornographic video game in the kids’ play area.

”Children reportedly went to the play area, only to return to their parents with the news that images of naked women were being displayed on a video game machine.

“The game was part of a 520-in-one arcade system supplied by a company that also rents out items such as pool and foosball tables.

”This company custom-builds the arcade cabinets by hand and buys the game system that goes inside from another supplier.

“We will be doing a full audit of all games, and all game consoles other than PlayStations and Xboxes will be removed from all our franchises.

“We have laid criminal charges against the supplier, because they were somehow not aware that a single console was corrupted with the age-restricted game.

“It stands to reason that a business such as ours‚ which cherishes families‚ especially their children, are absolutely appalled that this could have occurred in one of our outlets and we apologise to all affected families.”
