Lego denies discontinuing Jabba's Palace over race claims
According to them, it was due to be fazed out by the end of this year anyway. Face saving or true? (applies to both sides of the argument!).

The Independent reports that several Muslim groups in Austria claimed “Jabba’s Palace” was anti-Muslim as it showed popular “Star Wars” character Jabba the Hut in a mosque-like lair with a hookah, guns and an imprisoned Chewbacca.
“This sort of thing does not belong in a child’s bedroom,” Melissa Gunes, spokeswoman for Austria’s Turkish Cultural Association, told The Independent. “The game is pedagogical dynamite. It depicts Muslims as terrorists.”

Why does anyone pay any attention to religious morons? Shouldn't these Muslim idiots be upset with George Lucas anyway?

People are way too easily offended anymore.
