Ever since Fortnite exploded in popularity, there have been numerous calls to ban the game. Petitions to ban Fortnite have been drawn up and signed by thousands of individuals, and some politicians like Prince Harry have also called for the popular battle royale game to be banned, often citing the cases where people become addicted to it as reason to do so. While most of the world can still play Fortnite v bucks generator as much as they want, some countries have started taking action against the game, with it already banned in China, and more recently, banned in Iraq.
Iraq’s parliament voted to ban both Fortnite and PUBG, as well as microtransaction purchases that can be made in those games. Iraq’s parliament has attempted to justify its decision to ban Fortnite and PUBG by explaining the ban is “due to the negative effects caused by some electronic games on the health, culture, and security of Iraqi society, including societal and moral threats to children and youth.”
Some Iraqis have already started speaking out against the country’s Fortnite and PUBGban on social media. Iraq’s parliament has been accused of focusing on the wrong issues and for being generally ineffective, passing only a federal budget this past January when it was formed.
