French Soldier Sports “Ghost Mask” Outrage Ensues
Over the years here at CodCom, we’ve seen many controversial stories attach themselves to Call of Duty, from certain missions in-game to certain actions outside the game. Today we bring you news from the latter, about one French soldier who wore a mask similar to the one character Ghost wore in the popular shooter Modern Warfare 2 and the outrage that followed.
The photo (shown above) was taken by an unnamed photographer who also explained his amazement that the image has caused so much outrage.
“A helicopter was coming in to land and churning up tremendous dust clouds, instinctively, all the soldiers grabbed their scarfs to avoid getting a mouthful of sand. It was evening, and rays of sunlight were pushing through the trees and into the dust clouds. It was a lovely light. I spotted this soldier wearing a strange scarf and took the photo. At the time, nothing about the scene seemed especially unusual or shocking. The soldier wasn’t posing and there was nothing staged about the image. He was just standing there, protecting his face from the dust, waiting for the chopper to land. No one tried to stop me shooting the picture.”
The French military are in the process of finding the soldier in the picture and then more than likely make an example of him.
