Twitter users are slamming a World War Three themed video game after it used the American-Iranian conflict to promote its product
- Twitter users are complaining after a World War Three themed video game used the American-Iran conflict to promote its product on social media.
"Conflict of Nations: World War Three" tweeted a photo of the game with the caption: "Iran starting World War 3? Simulate any #WWIII scenario you can think of in Conflict of Nations right now!" The Daily Mail was first to report the news.
- The tweet was published on the same day that Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani was killed by a US air strike in Iraq, which has sparked concerns about the possibility of World War III breaking out.
- Twitter users dubbed the tweet as "profoundly inappropriate" and in "poor taste."
