Last month, it was reported that some World of Warcraft fans are asking Blizzard Entertainment to remove NPC character, “Gorge The Corpsegrinder,” from the game – the character that is named after CANNIBAL CORPSE frontman George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher.
Fans were citing comments made by Fisher‘s famous interview in 2007, which have been accused of homophobia.
In an interview, Fisher frequently used offensive terms against homosexuals in relation to some of the game’s characters.
After player outcry against Fisher‘s character spilled over onto World Of Warcraft-related forums earlier this year given his past comments, the decision was made to more recently rename Fisher‘s character. “Gorge The Corpsegrinder” has now been renamed to “Annihilator Grek’lor.”
CANNIBAL CORPSE released their fifteenth studio album, Violence Unimagined, on April 16th via Metal Blade Records.
