Has anyone seen the movie District 9?

This movie should be boycotted it portrays Nigerians in the worst light
The movie plays on racial stereotypes Nigerians and exploits South African history of apartheid and basically portrays blacks as savages. Nigerians are portrayed as brutal cannibalistic savages who exploit both humans and aliens. The movie mentions Nigerian women having sex with aliens.

The movie is getting great reviews by both movie goers and critics – not surprising the movie is number 1 at box office. So far the only one who dared to speak out against this movie is movie critic Aromond White and some fans of the movie are going as far as to ask for his resignations"

At the end of August, Sony was churning some lighthearted PlayStation 3 ads, poking fun at gaming journalists and other nonsense. All in good fun, right? Nigeria did not agree.

The Nigerian government took offense to one of Sony's ads on price cuts. Originally, the silly dialogue went something like this: "Bernie, you can't believe everything you read on the Internet. Otherwise I would be a Nigerian millionaire by now."

Nigeria was not amused. The government promptly demanded an apology from Sony, for allegedly damaging (or attempting to) the nation's upstanding reputation. Apparently, the Nigerian federal government really does believe this advertisement is an attempt to damage Nigeria's international businessinterests.

Information and Communication Minister Prof. Dora Akunyili released a statement in relation to the offense:

It is on record that Sony Corporation has operated in Nigeria since independence and has enjoyed tremendous patronage from Nigerians at home and abroad.

Over these years, there is no established record that the company has recorded any major fraud by Nigerians.

While Nigeria accepts that there are few criminal-minded people within her population like any other country including Japan, the home country of Sony Corporation, the Federal Government has put in place institutions to rid the country of fraudulent practices.

SCEA Statement Regarding PlayStation®3 TV Advertising

We never intended to create a situation that would upset anyone, and we have taken action to immediately remove the advertisement from the air. We apologize to anyone this may have offended."-SONY PLAYSTATION.
