EA Sports Removes Adam Johnson From FIFA 16

If you are looking to find Adam Johnson in FIFA 16 or FUT you are out of luck. The disgraced English footballer has been wiped clean from the game.

In case you are wondering why its this simple. Johnson was found guilty of sexually abusing a 15-year-old fan and is facing up to ten years in prison.

Because of that, Child abuse support groups and a number of fans launched a petition for Electronic Arts to remove him from the game. Seems EA agree that he should be removed and has since comply.

“Adam Johnson has been removed from the Active Rosters of both Sunderland and England in FIFA 16,” a rep for EA said in a statement.

“We’re working to remove him from other modes within the game as soon as possible.”

FIFA franchise has been ranked the most popular video game in the UK last year and this year’s edition FIFA 16 has sold 2.5 million copies in the UK and a lot more worldwide.
