I´ve been informed that Jean Plantu´s tweet and picture were supposed to be an “satire.” However, it´s up to each and everyone of you to decide for yourselves if you want to believe that or not. As for me, I´m really used to having people (and media) to blame everything on Gamers and video games. So it was rather hard to tell if the picture was a satire or not, as the picture could be interpreted in two ways.

***Update 1 – 2015-07-17 – 10:42 CEST***

I´m sorry that I forgot to add the translation of Jean Plantu´s tweet and picture, so I have added both translations to this update post. It´s probably not 100% accurate, but I think that you will get the idea anyhow.

Translation of Plantu´s tweet:

French:
“Terrorisme: Attentat déjoué: les suspects (le plus jeune a 16 ans) voulaient décapiter un militaire.”

English:
Terrorism: Attack foiled: suspects (the youngest is 16 years old) wanted to behead a soldier.

Translation of the picture:

French:
C’est l’heure du goûter petite canaille!

English:
It’s teatime little rascal!

——————————————————-

And here we go again…Blaming all the world’s problems on Gamers and video games. This time it´s the Jean Plantu, 63, the chief cartoonist of France’s Le Monde newspaper, that has lost his mind (so it seems). As Plantu has compared Gamers to terrorists in a cartoon picture which he released on Twitter today. I’m honestly starting to get rather annoyed by his accusations, especially due to the fact that it´s been proven time after time again that video games don’t create serial killers, terrorists nor gangsters.

Gamers are not terrorists mr Plante…

Just take the fact that Rockstars GTA5 has sold over 52 million copies worldwide. So in other words, that means that there should be at a couple of million nut cases and blood thirsty maniacs out there. To be honest, I think that Mr. Jean Plantu is just taking advantage of the current situation in the world (Mr. Iwata´s death, IsIs and all the debates about video game violence, etc.). That´s at least what I suspect, and if that´s the case, then it´s a really stinky move by Mr. Jean Plantu for sure…
