Some members of Russia’s parliament have sent a letter to the state communications oversight agency, alleging FIFA 17's support of a recent LGBT-friendly initiative in England breaks Russia’s “gay propaganda law”. And it’s not about dudes kissing. Well, not explicitly.
Because this was in the game, and because that’s literally EA Sports’ motto, cheap fifa 17 coins joined in and offered an entire rainbow-themed kit free for download.
This has upset some Russian MPs. The country’s infamous 2013 “gay Propaganda law” prohibits “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relationships” being available to minors. And you can buy fifa 17 coins, being an all-ages sports game, is available to minors, and despite this being a tiny and optional update to the game, has some calling for drastic changes to the game itself.
