Jack Thompson calls Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick a sociopath

Wednesday, 1st April 2009 23:00 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Disbarred attorney Jack Thompson has called Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick “a sociopath” in an interview with VGChartz.

No joke. He also insulted his parents. Just for good measure.

When asked if he thought parents should be lawfully punished for purchasing M-rated games for their children, Thompson disagreed – but only to an extent.

“How would you have me target irresponsible parents? Throw them in jail? There’s a bit of a constitutional/legal problem there,” he said.

“If we were going to start targeting irresponsible parents, then we should be throwing Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick’s mother and father in the federal penitentiary. Now that would definitely be a good thing. They raised a sociopath.”

Read the rest through there, if you can be bothered.

    Oh Jesus. Not this guy.

    I thought we already got rid of him? Why would anyone *want* to make us have to listen to him again?

    Time for the state to intervene I think. He’s clearly in need of treatment for mental health problems.

    Yeah, but they just disbarred him because of it. He didn’t get any help.
