Rockstar Apologizes For Haitian Content

Talk a ghost from Christmas past, Rockstar has decided to publically apologize for the "Haitian content" of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City:

As with literature, movies, music and other forms of entertainment, we have strived to create a video game experience with a certain degree of realism, which we believe is our right. Nevertheless, we are aware of the hurt and anger in the Haitian community and have listened to the community's objections to certain statements made in the game. Accordingly, we will remove the objectionable statements from future copies of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
-- Rockstar relinquishes over Haitian allegations

I understand that, once the content is removed, both copies of Vice City expected to sell next year will have a big impact on this issue.
