Last year former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega filed suit against Activision Blizzard Inc., the makers ofCall of Duty: Black Ops II, for using his likeness without permission. According to the complaint, Activision depicted Noriega as “a kidnapper, murderer and enemy of the state,”

Classic! SUCK IT KANYE!
