The shooting, which was carried out by a deranged racist, had yet to be linked to any video games at all. Yesterday on her show, however, Banfield dubbed the deaths "Mortal Kombat murders."
Ms. Banfield did not mention where she got her information that Mortal Kombat inspired the shooting.
Mortal Kombat is known for its extreme violence and "fatalities." However, no section of the game contains the Confederate Flag or anything remotely similar to what happened in Charleston.
