It's not really news (hence it being here) but EA have once again won the Golden Poo in Consumerist's Worst Company in America poll, beating out the likes of the Bank of America, Facebook, Walmart, and Ticketmaster.
Of course, AIG, BP, Halliburton, and ExxonMobile weren't even in the bracket.
Consumerist had this to say on the matter:
"When we live in an era marked by massive oil spills, faulty foreclosures by bad banks, and rampant consolidation in the airline and telecom industry, what does it say about EA’s business practices that so many people have — for the second year in a row — come out to hand it the title of Worst Company In America?"
In amongst a whole bunch of companies robbing people blind, waging false wars in overseas countries, destroying the planet, and manipulating governments we advise approaching the whole thing as a joke.
Then, again we're British and can therefore afford to laugh at our cousins across the pond. Otherwise you'd cry.
Are EA really the worst company in the US? Hell no. But they are pissing people off. There are days when the internet somehow coalesces together to demonstrate awesomeness. This is more a demonstration of stupidity and ignorance.
