The official White House petitions site âWe The Peopleâ has seen a variety of odd filings of late, including requests for certain states to leave the union and that the U.S. build a Death Star. Few have been more trivial, however, than a recent request to pull DmC: Devil May Cry off the shelves.
âWe, as consumers did not want nor need this reboot and we believeÂ it violates our rights to have a choice between the original’s or theÂ reboot,â said the grammatically challenged posting. âThis game is violating our rights as a consumer and we believeÂ it should be pulled off shelves from game stores due to it’s insultingÂ nature and the fact that it violates our rights. Please Mr. Obama, look into your heart and make the decision thatÂ will please us Gamers.â

While the petition had no realistic chance to reach 100,000 signatures anyway, it was removed after a short time due to violation of the site’s Terms of Participation. Regardless of intent, the request was probably better directed to the Better Business Bureau if it somehow didn’t meet industry standards â simply existing as a retail product, however, is not violating anyone’s rights.
