GTA IV ads pulled down in US

The Chicago Transit Authority has removed advertising for Grand Theft Auto IV from buses and buildings in the city.

According to GameDaily, the decision comes after a weekend of violent shootings in the city – and a Fox News affiliate publishing an article questioning the placement of the Chicago ads.

Take Two’s outdoor banners have already gained attention in cities such as Los Angeles and New York.

GameDaily adds that Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich publicly called out the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas advertisements in 2004, and these were also withdrawn by the CTA.
