Last week I posted a video of Kurt Cobain's avatar rocking out in Guitar Hero 5. It's pretty disturbing to fans to see the troubled lead singer of Nirvana busting out Flava Flav rhymes or singing Stevie Wonder tunes. But it's apparently not just fans who are upset. Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, isn't happy either.
"For the record this Guitar Hero sh*t is breach of contract on a Bullys part and there will be a proper addressing of this and retraction," Love posted on her Twitter feed.
She also tweeted:
WE are going to sue the sh*t out of ACtivision we being the Trust the Estate the LLC the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises.
i vomited when i saw the avatar got ill cried
FOR THE RECORD I DID NOT APPROVE KURTS AVATAR FOR GUYITARHERO5. i think Kurt would despise this game alone let alone this avatar.
So there you have it: Love is very angry, so angry, it seems that her Twitter feed is full of disjointed and confusing rants.
What do you think of the Cobain avatar? Is it all in good fun or a blight on the legacy of a talented artist? What would Kurt think?
