Capcom release a DLC stage for Street Fighter V called Temple Hideout  from Street Fighter 2 but the BGM music got a Islamic Chant in it. Some people was offended by this because of religious references, Capcom remove the DLC for PSN, Xbox Store and Steam and quickly replace the background music. For player who already download the stage their will be a emergency  maintenance update for the stage. The replace for the DLC stage will be Bison’s Street Fighter V theme, note the edited version of the Temple Hideout will release on a later date. If you want to listen to the soundtrack (1:20 mark), in my opinion is that company should be careful with these types of things like religious, race and gender. You don’t know who you might offended because this is not the only time Capcom face backslash.
