Activision invites, then uninvites porn star from MW3 party

Says no to sex, but a big yes to violence?

Activision has demonstrated a somewhat hypocritical take on sex versus violence after inviting, then at the last minute uninviting Dutch porn star Kim Holland from a Call of Duty: MW3 VIP party in Amsterdam.




Activision said that it was (apparently) unaware of Holland's usual working role, by which time it made the prompt decision to revoke her invitation. In response via her blog (translated into English), Holland said :-


Unpleasant announcement. The American publisher of Modern Warfare 3 has indicated that they prefer no representatives of the adult entertainment industry at the party. And so there must be some women in Britain and the Netherlands who are also canceled. I know, a little hypocritical, but the U.S. is the U.S. and I'm just the messenger


Being an avid gamer herself and delighted to be attending the party (especially considering she was meant to get a copy of the game along with a new Xbox 360 upon attending), she was unsurprisingly displeased to be informed of the dis-invite at the last minute and went on to question Activision's moral priorities in her blog by saying "People murdering people is neat, but love-makers are dirty?".


Kotaku contacted Activision this morning for comment on the story, of which they unsurprisingly declined to do so.
