The developers of The Simpsons Game are not happy with Rockstar, saying "The people who make Grand Theft Auto spazzed out like little babies" over the inclusion of a GTA parody level in The Simpsons Game

As TheFeed reported, the dust-up began when Rockstar objected to a "Grand Theft Scratchy" advertisment, and continued when EA pulled content that parodied Rockstar's flag-ship title from The Simpsons Game.

The Simpsons' Senior producer Matt Warburton shot back in an episode of Game Heads: "They’re supposed to be rockstars… That’s not a big Rockstar move, to be afraid of The Simpsons making fun of their game."

Executive producer Matt Selman piled on with: "Rockstar’s] games are full of satire, lame attempts at parody… basically putting the words sixty-nine in wherever they can find it… Trust me, I’ll be the first person in line to play Grand Theft Auto 4… in five years when it comes out."

Though it's a hopelessly out-of-date piece of pop culture verbiage, only one response is appropriate here: Oh, SNAP!
