More than 120 people gathered outside Activision's Santa Monica offices to protest what they deemed to be offensive content in Activision's Toy Story 2 Playstation title. The peaceful demonstration was sparked be the appearance of a mustachioed Mexican bandito character that many found to be a mocking portrayal of Hispanic stereotypes. The character does not appear in Disney's Toy Story 2 movie. While the company has promised to alter the appearance of the character in a future mastering of the game, there currently no plans to remove or amend copies already on the shelves.
