NetEase, a company which publishes PES games in China announced Ozil will be removed from three existing mobile games under the franchise according to scmp.com.
The company said Ozil’s comments had hurt the feelings of Chinese people and it doesn’t ‘understand, accept or forgive’ his behaviour. Konami, the Japanese developer of PES games is yet to comment.
Ozil criticised the country’s treatment of ethnic Uighur Muslims after a UN report said more than one million Uighurs have been detained in internment camps in the region.
In posts on Twitter and Instagram, the 31-year-old called Uygurs ‘warriors who resist persecution’ while also accusing the Chinese government of burning Qurans and tearing down mosques.
China’s foreign ministry invited the German midfielder who has Turkish descent to see the region’s ‘Stable political situation’ for himself after they said he was deceived by ‘fake news’.
