Earlier this week EA issued an apology to undefeated Lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov after he complained about his in game avatar using the sign of the cross as a celebration. The UFC fighter raised the issue because he is a Muslim and felt that his in game representation using the sign of the cross was offensive and inaccurate.
Well, EA has now taken to Twitter to announce that the latest patch has completely removed the animation from the game, they also took the opportunity to apologize, once again, for the ‘inaccurate representation of this animation’. You can view the Tweet below.
