Former dictator suing Activision over depiction in Call of Duty

Manuel Noriega 1988
Former Panama dictator Manuel Noriega is suing Activision Blizzard over his depiction in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, reports the LA TImes.

The 80-year-old Noriega's lawsuit claims he is portrayed as a "kidnapper, murderer and enemy of the state" which helped elevate sales of the game and he's seeking damages.

Noriega was imprisoned for two decades on drug-trafficking following the invasion of Panama in 1989. If he's getting a payout, so should student athletes from the NCAA & EA. Listen, let's just remember that Lindsay Lohan sued Grand Theft Auto 5 publisher Rockstar over less.
