EA Apologizes for “Unacceptable” and “Stupid” April Fools Joke Leveled at Nintendo
Posted on Wednesday, April 2 @ 04:13:41 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
In celebration of April Fools' Day, the folks over at DICE posted a joke on Twitter that wasn't afraid to make light of the fact that Electronic Arts has essentially abandoned Nintendo's tablet-centric gaming console.
The string of Tweets, which have since been pulled, read:
EA's Peter Moore then took to Twitter to offer a formal apology for the joke, calling it "stupid" and "unacceptable."
You can bet that DICE's joke caused quite a stir among the Nintendo faithful, forcing Electronic Arts to respond in the way it did.
You see? This is why I dread April Fools each and every year. Sure, you may find a few laughs here and there, but it's simply not worth the drama it stirs up.
