Konami Mocked Again By 'Hellboy' Director Guillermo del Toro

Konami Mocked Again By 'Hellboy' Director Guillermo del Toro

In one simple tweet, Guillermo del Toro hit both Konami and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Using the "Lying Sean Spicer" Meme, the director of "Pacific Rim" and "Hellboy", made another sarcastic message targeted at the Japanese video game publisher.

There is no love lost between the director and the publisher of "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain".  This is not the first time he has sent a message critical of the Japanese company.  According to gaming news website WWG, the conflict between the Mexican filmmaker and the iconic Japanese firm stems from the undeserved horrible treatment that his friend, reknowned game designer Hideo Kojima, received at the hands of his former employer, before Konami unceremoniously kicked him out and cancelled his projects which included a collaboration between him and the film director.  Del Toro has since sent two tweets mocking the Japanese publisher before this latest one.

If anyone thought that time had lessened his anger at the "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2" publisher, they were sorely mistaken.  He posted another tweet, his third in two months aimed at the company. Del Toro sent out a tweet that hit two targets at once.  He assailed both Konami and Sean Spicer who is the Chief Strategist and Communications Director for President Donald Trump.

Spicer was recently the subject of ridicule of an internet meme when he outright lied about the size of the crowd at Trump's inauguration while blaming media for reporting otherwise.  A White House Press Secretary who bends facts to protect the image of the President may deserve worse than just being made fun of.

Entertainment website Bleeding Cool reported that the "Pan's Labyrinth" director took advantage of the trending meme to drag video game company again through the mud.  He posted the meme and did not hold back any punches in bashing the publisher of "Pro Evolution Soccer 2017".

He posted in the tweet, "Konami loves and has always supported Kojima. PT was never created. Period" as if it had been posted by Spicer himself.  "P.T." was a Playable Teaser horror game demo released for the PlayStation 4 but was removed by the Japanese publisher and can no longer be downloaded.

Obviously, everything in his statement was intended to be false.  What is true though is that Konami might regret its past behavior since Guillermo del Toro has proven to be someone who does not easily forget nor forgive.
