“It’s fun that can turn foul, in seconds…”
That’s the intro from a video report by Roanoke’s WSLS-10 which frets about bad language used by players during Xbox Live Halo 3 matches. Anchor John Carlin (left), who pulled his own son’s XBL play into the story, says:
[We placed] a microphone in Tyler’s headset. The conversation was x-rated from the first shot… In another clip, clearly a young child was among the players. His language as bad as theirs… And the kids aren’t just hearing the bad talk—they’re speaking it. Racial slurs and homophobic comments as well.
