Call of Duty Series - Trivia & Easter Eggs

In the "Favela" level, some Muslim players who go by "Abderahim" & "KhaleDQ84EveR" (which he released his video on 2nd October 2012) complained about the Arabic script on the picture frame that is written "Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty" in the bathroom.

An Activision representative sent a message to KhaleDQ84EveR, which said:

"We apologize to anyone who found this image offensive. Please be assured we were unaware of this issue and that there was no intent to offend. We are working as quickly as possible to remove this image and any other similar ones we may find from our various game libraries. We are urgently working to release a Title Update to remove the texture from Modern Warfare 3. We are also working to remove the texture from Modern Warfare 2 through a separate Title Update. Until the TU is ready, we have removed the Favella multiplayer map from online rotation.Activision and our development studios are respectful of diverse cultures and religious beliefs, and sensitive to concerns raised by its loyal game players. We thank our fans for bringing this to our attention."

The map was removed from the game on the 6th October 2012. Then later, it was put back into rotation on the PS3 version on the 23rd October after an update which replaced the frame borders, and on December 10, 2012 for the Xbox 360 version.
