According to Egyptian Streets, he said: '[The cartoon] portrays the violence in a funny manner and sends the message that, yes, I can hit him…and I can blow him up with explosives. It becomes set in [the viewers’] mind that this is natural.'
He added that it has become common place for young men to spend hours playing violent video games and that the gamer will be 'happy and content'.
